4 Places to Celebrate Your Graduation in Manchester

All those late nights studying, society challenges, and questionable cocktail recipes have paid off – you’re ready to graduate! That absolutely calls for a celebration, and we’ve got JUST the places for you to check out. Whether you’re looking to raise a glass to your new degree, sit down to a tasty dinner, or want to get up on the table and dance the night away, we’re right there with ya. Let’s do this!

We’ll find literally any excuse to celebrate and go out to Tattu, and you can hardly blame us when it looks AND tastes sooooo good. We’re already drooling at the idea of getting our hands on their pork dumplings, and paired with their Kung Po Tofu, you simply cannot go wrong.

Tattu are also offering a complimentary ‘Graduation Cocktail’ when you pre-order from their lunch or sharing menu – all you have to do is add in the phrase ‘graduation bubbles’ to the notes of your booking, and you’re ready to go.

Atlas Bar

Atlas Bar is a Manchester icon for a reason, also known as the Gin Palace. They’re home to almost 600 – no, that isn’t a typo, that is SIX HUNDRED – different types of gin, and we’re pretty sure that if you can’t find anything in that range that you like, you might just be a bit too fussy.

If you go into Altas Bar still wearing your graduation robe, they’ll give you 20% off a bottle of champers – easiest offer we’ve ever redeemed!

Zouk Tea Bar and Grill

If you’re more too fussed about free drinks, don’t worry, we’ve got something else up our sleeve. Zouk Tea Bar and Grill is one of our favourite Indian restaurants to visit, with the food always scoring a perfect 10/10. Serving up THE best lamb nihari we’ve ever tasted, if you haven’t tried it already it should be added onto your list, stat.

Zouk are also offering a complimentary bespoke dessert to any graduates who come in in their gown, or, if you don’t want to lose your robe deposit to a big curry sauce stain down the front, they’ll accept your graduation certificate too. Just give your hands a wash before you pick it back up.

Albert's Schloss

You haven’t been on a true Manc night out if you haven’t ended up in Albert’s Schloss, where they quite literally do encourage you to get up and dance on the tabletops. This is a rite of passage, and if you haven’t done it by now, your graduation night is the perfect time.

Throughout July, all day Monday to Friday, you’ll be greeted with a complimentary round of prosecco for you and your guests – but only up to 8 of you, we don’t want you drinking Schloss out too early in the night! This offer is exclusively for dining bookings in the Cook Haus, but make sure you head to the bar after your meal – they do one of the best expresso martinis you’ll find in the city.

We hope that you have an absolute blast for your Graduation and want to say congratulations and good luck on what comes next! Are you staying in the city, or looking to go elsewhere? We’d love to hear about it over on our socials.
