A rooftop bar and restaurant in Manchester has been labelled as offering the ‘best views’ of the city according to locals.
With the weather heating up, a sky-high terrace in the sun sounds perfect during the summer months and reviews of 20 Stories in Spinningfields states it fits the bill perfectly.
Offering 360 degree cityscape views over the Manchester skyline, it’s not just the customers who are raving about the venue, it was also recently ranked as one of the best in Europe.
But there’s no better praise than that of a happy customer.
Giving it a four-star rating, a sign she’d recommend it to friends, 2Chill member Susan Griffin said: “For arguably the best views of the city, then head to 20 Stories, which is actually on the 19th floor of 1 Spinningfields.
“The indoor bar and dining areas which sandwich it are suitably stylish, but most people head to 20 Stories for its rooftop terrace.
“A glamorous spot, especially as the sun sets on the city, with cushioned seating areas, fire pits and unrivalled views.”
