Welcome to the Bay Horse website! We are a well established Manchester institution, situated in the heart of the bohemian Northern Quarter, in the centre of town. 

We are a warm, inviting space where you can eat to your hearts content, chill out and catch up with friends and listen to a variety of music.

We live on Thomas Street, one of the bloodlines of Manchester's Northern Quarter. The Northern Quarter is an alternative and hipster district filled to the brim with independent eateries, bars, coffee houses and vintage shops, as well as being a Mecca for music lovers and DJs nationwide. It's creativeness and quirkiness means the area is constantly changing, but we at the Bay Horse are here to stay and love the fact the area, only properly established in the early 2000s, is always the place to be - so much so that many movies are filmed here and songs named after it! 


Live music has always played a role in our heritage and we continue to showcase weekly music events from Open Mic nights to regular rotating DJs, impromptu gigs and evenings dedicated to the old age art of vinyl. See our 'What's Going On' page for the upcoming weeks events!
