So you’ve met somebody new and the potential for romance is high; congratulations! Now it’s time to plan your first date. But be careful: the location you choose could go a long way in setting the tone for the evening, in turn affecting your chances for future dates and the possibility of things getting more serious. You’ll want to make sure to select a spot that’s fun and inviting, while also offering a unique experience. Might we suggest our charming Irish pub?

Casual Dining

The last thing you want to do on a first date is go too fancy. A stuffy, formal restaurant can stifle conversation and make you both feel like you’re under pressure to “act proper”. And why spend an arm and a leg on fine dining when you can get tasty food for a fraction of the price? With a full menu of mouth-watering deliciousness, Murphy’s Taproom has the best pub food in Manchester. You and your date will enjoy the casual, laid-back atmosphere, allowing the conversation to flow freely.

Drinks For Two

If you’re having trouble getting past those initial awkward moments where you’re both trying to think of things to talk about, nothing works better than a couple cold beers. Our pub features over 100 beers on tap from all over the world. Whether you try something new and exotic or just order your favorite go-to beer, a couple cold ones can be a great way to get you and your date talking. Just be sure to drink responsibly!

Stick Around For The Band!

With a calendar full of live music, our pub will keep you and your date entertained for as long as you want to stick around. Watching one of our live bands is a fun experience that you’ll both enjoy, and you might even have an opportunity to check out your date’s dancing skills!

From dinner to drinks to live music, our Irish pub is one of Manchester’s best options for your first date. And who knows; if it works out, maybe someday you’ll be bringing your kids here!
