Pen and Pencil is a bar in Manchester's vibrant Northern Quarter that specialises in 'brunch, lunch, cocktails and good times'.
You'll find it on Hilton Street - a short walk from Shudehill's bus and tram stations and within easy reach of the rest of the Northern Quarter's bars and restaurants. It's the perfect place to go for lunch, brunch or after work drinks and has a great range of wines, beers and cocktails on offer. The cocktail menu specialises in classic cocktails like martinis, Manhattans and old fashioneds so if you prefer more tropical flavours, check out somewhere like the Liar's Club or Tusk.
The food menu focuses on big American breakfasts like corned beef hash, pork and beans and pancakes as well as sandwiches and salads. Perfect for lunch or brunch, if it's too early for a boozy drink, make sure you try out one of Pen and Pencil's homemade super smoothies. Choose from the likes of kale, mint and apple, or kiwi, banana and spinach for a healthy morning boost.
With 1950s New York inspired decor, there are even a couple of subtle nods to the hit US TV series Mad Men. Take the name Pen and Pencil, for instance, which is also the name of the New York diner where Don Draper and co hang out.
