“Let the sins begin” say the team at one of the Northern Quarter’s best basement bars for interactive entertainment. Once through that door, the retro-futurist aesthetic will be the first thing to hit home, with neon purple and pink strip lights, graffiti, and games machines, spread out over the ground and basement floor. Alongside a range of classic arcade games, punters will find shuffleboard and pool tables, darts, beer pong and more, making this an ideal spot for groups and parties looking to flex some muscle and show off their skills while indulging in food and drink.
Both of which are at 7 Sins in big numbers. The Fried Greatness is perhaps the biggest selling point of the menu — probably the city’s biggest choice of fries, including their Bacon the Law (melted cheese and crispy bacon). Puns continue elsewhere, with pizzas like the Pepper-Only One I Know, Meat You There, and Meat Me Halfway, while burgers boast names like Phil Me In (minced steak, buttered onions, peppers, cheese, mustard), All Star (3 hand-smashed patties, deep-fried bacon, cheese, chili, fried chicken, fried onions, pickles, Smash sauce) and the Doggy Style hotdog. Happy hour runs daily until 7PM, with two-for-one cocktails, select pints under £4, and half price gaming, although at any time the choice of beers, ales, wines and spirits is impressive.
