If you’re about to celebrate your graduation in Manchester this summer – congratulations! After working hard for the last 3 years, you’ve earnt yourself a hell of a day – or night – out. No matter what your ideal celebration looks like, we’ve got some great ideas for you, and have put together our favourite places to go (and even included a few cheeky discounts for you to make the most of too!)
A perfect choice for those looking to celebrate in style over lunch or dinner, Gaucho is offering free fizz to all graduates for bookings and walk-ins, giving you something to raise a glass to when sharing a toast with friends or family. We would recommend visiting for brunch, where their menu looks absolutely incredible, with plenty of options for even the fussiest of eaters.
Famous for its bottomless brunches, Turtle Bay is a great option for those who like to celebrate in the day with friends or family. You can book a two-hour timeslot and pick from their brunch or lunch menu, with unlimited cocktails for only £31.50. There are also options in both the Northern Quarter and on Oxford Street just up the road from our office – so you can pick the best one for you and celebrate your graduation as if you were on holiday, surrounded by stunning Caribbean vibes.
One of the best places in the city for beer and BBQ flavours, the Quarter House are offering an impressive 25% off your entire bill when you quote ‘Manchester Met Graduation’. Working for both bookings and walk-ins, this is a great place for any meat lovers who want to enjoy a meal with their friends or family after graduating, but make sure you return your robe first, so that you don’t splatter it in BBQ sauce eating your ribs. No-one wants to pay that charge!
A tiki lounge bar that absolutely nails that ‘insta-perfect vibe’ with their menu, Hula is offering graduates in the city free entry as well as 2-4-1 cocktails, so you can really let your hair down and party. Since they’re on offer, we’ll take a Tiki Vimto!
Refuge is a firm favourite in Manchester, with the option of a sit-down dinner or a night out on the town. They’re also offering a complimentary glass of bubbly for all dining guests when they quote ‘MMU Graduation’ to really get the party started.
For those with friends and family travelling into the city to celebrate their graduation together, The Lowry Hotel have put together a Con-GRAD-ulations package to offer you a night you won’t forget. Offering you two rooms, a Full English breakfast in the morning, along with 15% off food and drinks, 20% off all spa treatments, as well as champagne on arrival AND a complementary congratulatory amenity from the hotel for those graduating – if this isn’t the most bougie way to celebrate your graduation, then we don’t know what is!
We can’t wait to see the graduation ceremonies begin and all of your hard work praised. Let us know how you choose to celebrate – and a big, happy graduation from Manchester Apartments!
