Dive Northern Quarter Manchester Review

Dive NQ Visit: October 2016

phototasticcollage-2016-09-27-08-27-50Slap bang in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter, where an eccentric, eclectic mix of styles and tastes merge, you can take the plunge and Dive into an all American style bar. Décor consisted of cool electrifying statement steel lights, simple tea light candles and subdued lighting set the scene.  The booth style seating ideal for groups of friends to catch up and have fun or in our case a casual cosy hang out for two.  There are enough plasma TVs to catch up on all that sporting action from any angle…uk football or perhaps lets trial out some American football.  Or if clubbing is your scene get on your dancing shoes and dive in after hours when the place becomes a hot nightspot!

staters-bitesOur delicious Dive day started with  Tasty Texan Beef Skewers Served with BBQ, Tabasco & honey dips.  My personal fav was the mouth-watering Mini corn Dogs Served with mustard & Dive ketchup.  Finally we enjoyed the yummy Nachos served on an impressive super stacker display with Jalapenos, guacamole, mozzarella & sour cream.

mainssidesWhether you want healthy or hearty Dive delivers!  The luscious Cobb Salad with grilled chicken, bacon dust, avocado, boiled egg, blue cheese, lettuce & tomato served with dive dressing was fresh, fabulous and was a great healthy option.  The swish delish Swine Burger made with ground pork & beef pattie served with pulled pork, BBQ sauce, bacon, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce & onions was heavenly.  Scrummy sides included the Skin on Fries, Sweet Potato Wedges and Onion Rings.

dessertsandcocktailsThe lip-smacking pancake stack was served with vanilla ice cream and brilliant blueberry compote.  The drinks menu was impressive with an array of offerings from Brooklyn Brown Ale, Blind Pig Bourbon & Blueberry and of course Cocktails!  My top three cocktails mixed up by the lovely Jack included the Mule ‘N’ Bramble created with absolut vodka, vanilla gomme, lime juice, cloudy apple juice, cinnamon, Jamaican ginger beer and fresh blackberries.  A must have is the Hoodoo Voodoo shaken with four roses bourbon, lime juice, Angostura Bitter, orgeat syrup, pineapple, orange juice and grenadine.  Finally, explore and go deep by trying their signature Jungle Juice, twisted up with Havana 3, pineapple, cranberry, lime, passion fruit gomme and prosecco.

Loved the Dive team! Kitchen, Bar and front of house were focused, friendly and fun.  Yet took time out to engage with customers and explain Dives awesome array of food and beverage options.  The hospitality industry can be hard but when you make it look as effortless as these guys do you are clearly doing something right. I would be happy to Dive in again anytime!

Cosy Club Manchester Review

Cosy Club Manchester Visit: October 2016

decorSundays are synonymous with having a cosy snug duvet day, but I have found a home away from home where Sunday can be just as cosy – The Cosy Club Manchester.  Part of the iconic corn exchange, the building dates back to 1903 and was home to city traders.  Today, the venue is bustling with locals and tourists looking for a place to get cosy and enjoy some delicious delights.

Vita Coco Review

Vita Coco Review: September 2016

vitacocostarterThe Vita Coco brand was founded ten years ago by childhood friends Mike Kirban and Ira Liran. A chance encounter with two young Brazilian women, during a dining outing in a New York City Bar, revealed how coconut water was a real trend. Several plane tickets to Brazil and a few months later and the Vita Coco brand was born.   Now a successful global brand with celebrity followings such as Madonna, Matthew McConaughey, and Rihanna! Vita Coco respect mother nature by resourcefully using every part of the coconut and are an ethical brand that have committed to giving back to the communities that help to produce these Coconutty concoctions.

Icelandic Skyr Review

Icelandic Skyr Review: September 2016

intropiccyIcelandic Skyr, not just your regular yogurt! Produced from authentic Icelandic Skyr cultures, skimmed milk, fermented with a previous curd and separated from the whey has a rich history spanning back over 1100 years.  Synonymous with Iceland’s national identity, good health and family tradition Icelanders have continued the historic tradition and still develop this rich in calcium, fat-free protein-packed dairy superfood.  Ms Iceland dairies -Mjólkursamsalan have stayed true to their Icelandic roots by using traditional production methods with just a little help from modern technologies.
