Where: 100 Great Bridgewater St, Manchester, M1 5 JW
What: The Temple (formerly The Temple of Convenience) is a strange little bar with a great atmosphere, you’ll find it on your left down some stairs if you head from the Cornerhouse to St Peter’s Square. The fact that it is a renovated public toilet only adds to its quirkiness and charm!
It is one of Manchester’s smallest bars, very popular due to a vast array of foreign bottled beers (with a few others on tap for good measure) and a jukebox packed with some amazing Manchester bands, many of whom frequent The Temple. The intimate seating plans encourages a relaxed and sociable atmosphere.
The place usually quite busy means that getting to the bar can be a bit of a mission, but you won’t be waiting for a table long and the atmosphere is definitely worth it, The Temple is definitely a conversation starter.
