If you’ve been to Barca before, we hope you’re already fully aware of the fact that we offer something a little extra special. From fantastic Friday nights, to memorable birthday parties, to delicious lunches- we always look to provide our customers with something more, which is why we’ve always proven to be so popular.

In fact, you might have been so busy attending our incredible events and gawking at our function rooms, that you’ve managed to miss some of our most fantastic features. Following our recent refurbishment, we wouldn’t blame you if you became a little swept up in the beauty of the place, so it’s very possible that some of our best offers have simply slipped under your radar.

Well, there’s no need to panic, because we’re going to run you through 3 of the main things you have to do at Barca, so that you don’t have to miss out any longer:

1) Early Diners

Everyone loves food, so let’s start with that. If you’re a Barca regular then you probably already know that we’ve just introduced a brand new menu, while those that have never eaten here before should really come and see what all the fuss is about.

On top of the mouth-watering selection of new dishes, you can also take advantage of our Early Diners menu if you’re lunching on a budget. Running Monday to Friday between 12 and 6pm, we offer you the chance to grab 2 courses for £11.95, or 3 courses for £14.95. With so many great options to choose from, our Early Diners menu is the perfect way to grab a great lunch!

2) Happy Hour

Who doesn’t love a good Happy Hour? At Barca, we certainly do! Monday to Thursday we offer some fantastic drinks offers between 5 and 7pm, meaning you’ve got plenty of opportunity to get yourself a cheaper drink. We’ve got cocktails at 2 for £12, half price Prosecco and selected bottles of beer at 2 for £6.

In short- it doesn’t matter what you like to drink, because our Happy Hour has a little something for everyone.

3) Be A VIP!

Let’s face it- at some point in our lives, each and every one of us has dreamed of being famous for some reason. If you’ve dreamt of the red carpet, the photo shoots and the life of luxury, then maybe you should take a look at our VIP Lounge.

Based on the first floor, the Barca VIP Lounge gives you access to our incredible balcony, providing breath-taking views of the canal and Castlefield area. The interior plays host to luxurious leather booths, a private bar and even a DJ booth- while you’ll also have access to a range of incredible dining options.


If you love Barca and want to be treated like a King or Queen, then the VIP Lounge is something that you have to experience.

Our choice of suites for hire, fantastic food and unrivalled service is what makes us the best bar in Manchester. But don’t just take our word for it, head on down today and see for yourself!
