The Pen & Pencil Manchester
An added touch of New York glamour has arrived in Manchester with the The Pen & Pencil bar and eatery on the corner of Hilton and Tariff Street.

Taking its name and inspiration from the infamous mid-20th Century bar on East 45th Street in New York, which was popular with newspaper journalists and ad men – the original ‘Mad Men’, The Pen & Pencil offers the perfect place for the NQ’s creative locals to chill, think, meet and enjoy great food and drink.

Open seven days a week, The Pen & Pencil is open from 10am right through until late, with a focus on a strong day time offering with great breakfast, brunch, lunch, vegan and vegetarian dishes washed down with top quality coffee and freshly blended smoothies. 

The brunch includes American pancakes with a choice of toppings, their signature Eggs Pen and Pencil, Steak and Eggs and The Vegan Breakfast with Falafel sausage, guacamole, wilted spinach, asparagus, beans, hash brown, grilled tomato, flat cap mushroom and toasted sourdough.
Pen & Pencil Restaurant Manchester
Evenings and weekends the menu develops to include small plates and a few larger dishes with an international feel. It sits alongside a specially created cocktail list making the venue perfect for mid afternoon cocktails, after work gatherings, and those wanting to eat and drink until the early hours.

The cocktail list, created in-house features, amongst others, Hot of the Press made with Manchester Gin, lemon and cherry bitters, topped with their very own logo and plenty more refreshing summer serves.

A resident DJ gets the party started every weekend and the team has curated a series of monthly live music nights.

The Pen & Pencil is the joint venture of two of Manchester’s established bar and restaurant operators, Dan Pollard who created The Violet Hour cocktail bar and lounge on Burton Road in West Didsbury and Kevin Connor, who previously ran the NQ institution, Dry Bar on Oldham Street.
