Summer House is the bright, stylish ‘pop – up’ bar now open for 18 weeks (until 30 September) in Manchester’s Exchange Square; a vibrant, modern meeting place for the events of the summer.

All events on the big screen will also be shown under cover on 50” plasma screens within the clear marquee, which (by the end of this week) has free WIFI so sports fans can follow all events online, and tweet to their hearts content.

Feeling unlucky on Friday 13th?

Summer House staff will be weirdly and wonderfully dressed as their favourite Alice in Wonderland characters, so feel free to join them! There will be a special complimentary shot for those that dress up and a prize for best costume!
