The sun is out and the nights are getting longer. This can only mean one thing – it’s time for a tipple.

If you’ve got a soft spot for socialising, style and sophistication, a night out enjoying Cosmopolitans or White Russians might be just what you need.

To make the occasion that little bit more special, why not head out to Manchester’s city centre where you’ll find the best of the best in cocktail bars.

We’ll also be able to offer our chaffering services in one of our limos for the night, making sure you arrive and leave your destination in a cool and dignified way – no matter how tipsy you may be!
