Sometimes a Friday and Saturday night just doesn’t cut it and what you really want is a boozy Sunday afternoon filled with food and fancy drinks.
I say this, sat at my desk on a Monday morning, desperately hungover from an extremely heavy Sunday Funday. But despite having my head in a bucket, #NoRegrets. So, if you’d like to feel as deathly as I do right this second, read on!
10p Wings & Happy Hour
Let’s just skip all the bullshit and get straight to the point. £5 Party cocktails, £5 Bunny Boilers, £12 House wine, £16 Prosecco and £5 Frozen Daiquris, every single day between 5-9pm. Oh yeah and 10p Chicken Wings from 5pm. Bullshit averted.
Bunny Jacksons, 1 Jack Rosenthal Street, Manchester M15 4RA
If you’re planning on a Sunday Sesh with your pals, you can’t go far wrong with El Capo in the NQ – especially if you’re feeling a little bit peckish. Not only do they have a fantastic Happy Hour between 4pm and 7pm (with £5 cocktails and bottles of Sol for £2.50) but they also offer a Sunday Service with a huge mound of food consisting of a huge Burrito, Nachos, Chicken Wings, 2 Tapas and 2 Sides for only £14 each.

Roast Dinner & Bottomless Prosecco
Probably the greatest deal in the city for your Sunday Funday, Brasserie Abode offer their Sunday Social deal every single week and I must warn you – it gets busy. The reason it gets busy is because for £25 you can get yourself a massive (and delicious) roast dinner complete with live music and bottomless prosecco for 2 hours! How good is that!?
Brasserie Abode, 107a Piccadilly, Manchester M1 2DB
2-4-1 Happy Hours
God love Turtle Bay and their ridiculous 2-4-1 cocktail deals. From opening til 7pm and then again at 10pm till late, you can enjoy two of your favourite cocktails for the small price of one; which also includes non-alcoholic bevs, for all you soon-to-be mommas or fitness freaks. I have genuinely lost count of how many messy nights have started in TB, but I wouldn’t go anywhere else for cheap and delicious cocktails now!
Turtle Bay, 33-35 Oxford St
Turtle Bay, 46-50 Oldham St
I’ll be honest, I never visited Dive much in the past. However, that’s all changed since they’ve upped their offers game in recent months. Running between 5pm and 12am every single day (except Saturday), Dive Bar run their seriously tempting Happy Hour which consist of £2.50 pints, £2.50 spirits and mixers, £10 bottles of wine and £25 bottles of Prosecco. Can’t really complain with that, can you?
Dive NQ, Tib Street / Oldham Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester M4 1SH
Cane & Grain
666 Sunday’s – 18 Wings for £6.66
The city’s best rib joint go chicken wing crazy on a Sunday with their 666 Wings deal. It’s nice and easy. For the princely sum of £6.66 you can get your hands on 18 amazing wings – with their three different sauces – 6 Buffalo, 6 Kansas and 6 Hot as F**k. It’s available all day and the wings truly are amazing. What else do you need?
Cane & Grain, 49 -51 Thomas Street, Manchester M4 1NA
Crazy Ped’s is the coolest joint in town, meaning they have a super cool Happy Hour to complement their already awesome reputation. Maybe you just popped in for a slice of their iconic pizza, or maybe you fancied a game of Beer Pong with the gang. Either way, why not make the most of the 2-4-1 cocktails, £8 bottle of ‘Cheap Plonk’ and discounted food, between the hours of 5-9pm, Sunday-Friday? Sounds ped-ticularly tempting, if you ask me.
55-57 Bridge St, Manchester M3 3BQ
Short St, Manchester M1 1JG
If your civilised Sunday Funday turns seshy, there’s only one place to go. Obviously its Liars Club- where else would you go for cheap drinks and cheesy music? With 2 for £10 cocktails, 1/3 off sharing cocktails, £8 bottles of Wine and selected £2.50 beers on offer, you’ll just be lying to yourself if you say you don’t wanna go… Trust me, this offer is almost as good as my puns.
The Liars Club, 19A Back Bridge St, Manchester M3 2PB
Happy Hour & 50% Off Food
Tusk is an absolute go-to for a Sunday Funday, because not only do they have a sick Happy Hour, but they also offer 50% off food- ALL DAY! It’s important to line your stomach with good food if you plan on getting wasted, so Tusk is an excellent shout because you can do just that, at a discounted price. And then, between 5-10pm, don’t miss out on Tusk’s ‘Jungle Fever Happy Hour’, which includes 2 cocktails for £10, 2 beers for £5, a bottle of house wine for £10 and a bottle of Prosecco for £15.

Revolucion de Cuba
2-4-1 Cocktails & Tapas
The problem with Happy Hour is they usually only last a couple of hours. However, that’s not the case at Revolucion de Cuba. They offer 2-4-1 cocktails and tapas, ALL DAY, EVERY SUNDAY. Seriously, this isn’t a joke guys – you could have a day of food, booze and banter with your mates for next-to-nothing, and you could do this every Sunday till your heart’s content. Personally, I recommend the Frozen Strawberry Daiquiris- they are to.die.for!
Revolucion de Cuba, 11 Peter St, Manchester M2 5QR
The Whiskey Jar
I mean, is it even a Sunday Funday if you don’t go to The Whiskey Jar on Tariff Street? No it bloody isn’t. Every day till 7pm, you enjoy two selected cocktails for £10, two for £6 beers, and a £10 bottle of wine. That’s basically a full day of boozing for a fraction of the cost. Mint.
The Whiskey Jar, 14 Tariff St, Manchester M1 2FF
Black Dog Ballroom
Obviously Black Dog has some deals available for your Sunday Funday- is there anything they don’t do?! Their shamazing ‘Yappy Hour’ runs between 4pm and 8pm, Sunday – Friday, and includes £4 selected cocktails, £10 house wine, £3 Lager/Cider, £3 selected beer bottles, £2.50 Jagerbombs and £4 loaded fries. And don’t worry, this deal runs at both their Northern Quarter and Wakefield Street locations.

Board games and booze… Do Sunday’s get any better? Well they do when there are cheap drinks on the table. Every Sunday, all day long, treat yourself to 2 bottles for £5 on Corona, 2 Orchard Pig or Hold Fast pints for £6, 2 House Spirits and mixer for £6, 2 Cocktails for £9 and a bottle of House Wine for just £12. Hold the front door- is this even real?!
