My Manchester: Georgia Barlow

14th January 2019


How would you summarise Manchester?

A vibrant, diverse, friendly city with loads going on for absolutely anyone.

Do you remember the first gig you saw in the city?

Florence and the Machine in 2015.

And the best (so far)?

Probably Foals in Manchester Arena. That could soon be replaced by Massive Attack though!

If you had someone visiting for 24 hours, where would you take them?

For sure Font and Venue. Haha!

What would you say is Manchester’s hidden gem?

Siop Shop in Northern Quarter for the BEST doughnuts, or YES club.

The best for…

A quick pint? Courtyard.
A night out? Venue.
To see new music? Night & Day.
Grab a coffee? Cheeky Coffee.
Brunch? Moose Coffee!!
Dinner? Wagamamas.
Takeaway? MyThai.
Venue? Albert Hall.
Taking a time out? Cathedral Gardens.
Clothes shopping? Trafford Centre.
Vinyl shop? Afflecks!
See art? On the sides of buildings in NQ.
