Swanky Deansgate Bar Named Best In The UK For Second Year Running

24 May 2023 by Sam Easton

For the second year on the bounce one of our very own cocktail bars has been labelled the best in the UK at the prestigious Class Bar Mag awards.

The bar in question is the frankly fabulous, Schofields in Deansgate which scooped up the silverware at last nights awards. Not only did they win Bar Of The Year, they also were named New Bar Of The Year too and the icing on the cake is the fact that this is their second year in winning the coveted Bar Of The Year title.

First opened in 2021 by two brothers from Rossendale, the bar has continued to flourish since it’s inception in 2019 and has now truly established itself as not only one of Manchester's very best bars for cocktails but also as one of its most aesthetic, with its intricate and classy interior.

Co-host and editor of the Class Bar Awards, Hamish Smith had this to say: “The 78 finalists this year were the strongest and most geographically diverse since we relaunched the Awards in 2017.”

“London remains strong but the Bar of the Year is in Manchester again, the New Bar of the Year is in Birmingham, the Bar Innovator of the Year is in Edinburgh and the bar leading sustainable practices is in Cornwall – there are countless other bars up and down the UK propelling the industry forward.”

“Not in recent memory has the UK bar scene felt as rich in talent, or as evenly spread. London doesn’t lead the global bar industry anymore, the UK does.”
