Like Arcade Fire, the owners of this cool drinking den think that the suburbs are where it’s at, so they put Proof bar in Chorlton. Expect the trendy buzz of an inner-city bar minus the cr*p and the queuing - 19 miles from the city centre might put some off but not BarChick, plus it was a nice place to warm up before heading back into Manchester later that night.

It’s pretty cool in here; modern, with electric blue lights and a well-lit bar but still the look is smoking hot. Not looking your finest? Worry not - it’s dim and sexy so you can get loose while looking lovely. Not sure what to have?… the staff are awesome and will mix up whatever you want (within reason) so why not try something new.

Get out here, you will love it… and as these cheeky boys say “the proof is in the pudding.”
