Just Some of the Reasons I Love Manchester #ExperienceMercure
I've been living in Stoke and working in Manchester for just under a month now. Manchester is by far one of my favourite places, ever. But something about the affordable rent in Stoke just keeps me here for the time being. I thought after going there every day I might grow a little sick of it. But I simply haven't. Every lunch time I spend the full hour strolling around town, discovering new places to eat and new things to see.
Whilst we were there we drank lots of bubbles, ate a great deal of food and danced a little bit as well. Mercure treated us to the delights of a seasonally local 3 course menu after an evening of exploring the city.
Featuring a rang of locally sourced food, the menu had all the delicious North West classics you need. Lancashire Hot Pot, Cheshire Cheeses, Bury Black Pudding... All washed down with some amazing cocktails which were mixed to perfection at Mercure's very own bar. Shortly after the meal, we were so stuffed (and a little tipsy), so we retreated to our lovely twin room... For a while. We then caught wind that Satan's Hollow was having a Harry Potter themed evening. Of course, we needed to attend.
Not only did they have ACTUAL fried eggs (hey, it's the small details that make it), but they also had potatoes and the most deliciously juicy sausages. With a minor hangover forming, this was all such a welcome addition to my morning. Not only that, but the fruit selection had watermelon, which we all know is the best hangover cure, ever.
It wasn't all about the hotel though, let's just take this opportunity to sing the praises of Manchester even more....
The 5 Reasons I love Manchester:
There are SO many places to go for just as much dancing fun though. If you like retro music that's not shit, then FAB Cafe is the place to head to. B52's, INXS, Human League and any retro song you can shake a stick at can be heard in there. Canal Street, Deansgate Locks, Northern Quarter and more... There's so many places to choose from, depending on how you feel. And the best part? You can make minimal effort as everyone is so laid back.
