Nestled in the centre of Manchester we are located above the lively Walkabout Bar and Nightclub. The bar serves food from midday every day until late. We love our sport at Walkabout so pop in and watch a game on our Big screen, or dance the night away all weekend when our DJs party through till 3am

Walkabout is across the road from the Opera House and a stone's throw away from the MEN Arena, Manchester Central, the main shopping district, vibrant China Town, the Northern Quarter, Canal Street and a short cab to the famous Curry Mile and Old Trafford, let alone museums, the universities and historical buildings!
