Written By Hans Dryer

Retro Bar is a strange little pub, situated at the edge of the UMIST university Campus.

The bar is well presented, and has a good range of drinks at good prices.

There are several tables, a pool table, 2 fruit machines and a Jukebox.

Downstairs, the Basement is run as a club, and regularly do band nights etc.

I have always detected a strange atmosphere in here, possibly slightly hostile to non regulars.

Food is also available most of the time, i recall having some good meals there such as Pie, Chips, Peas and Gravy, and other such delights.

After such food and drink, you're sure to need at least a slash, if not a great steaming dump!

To the bogs..

Upstairs is a small gents room. A Silver trough has an unusual bottom piece which extends to the floor! Has stickers on it most of the time.

The pan is more standard, the cubicle is often plastered with stickers and political statements, quite common for student locations.

The downstairs bogs are less well maintained. The dimly lit club blends in well with the grotty sh*tters though. A more standard full length silver trough appears from the terracotta and red floor tiles, well worth a p*ss.

Overall, a good starting pub on a trip to Manchester, and the bogs are well worth inspecting.

Score 6/10
