The Pen and Pencil sits on the corner of Hilton and Tariff Street in Manchester’s lively Northern Quarter. Our bar and eatery is open seven days a week from 10am ’til late.

We take our name and inspiration from the infamous mid-20th Century bar on East 45th Street in New York’s ‘Steak Row’ which was popular with newspaper journalists and ad men – the original ‘Mad Men’.

Looking for a late night party? Our team of resident DJs are on hand on Friday and Saturday nights to get the party started every weekend. Plus we offer private hire for networking meetings, private parties and launch events.

Our private room is available 7 days a week, comes with its own exclusive bar, screen and projector and can accommodate up to 60 guests. Full venue hire is available on selected days - capacity is 200 guests.

We have a number of food options available to suit all tastes, budgets and dietary requirements including sliders, canapés and a 3-course menu.

We offer a full range of bespoke packages that can be tailored to suit any event, so please get in touch with your requirements!
