Best Happy Hours in Manchester 2017

I always try my best not to pay full price for anything, mostly because I’m a tight bugger but also because everything is so expensive nowadays. Knowing that my dad used to pay about 35p for a pint in his local boozer just makes me want to start drinking lighter fluid on a night out as a cheap alternative to a 5 quid pint. Either that or I could head to one of these Happy Hours…
