It's a well know fact that Manchester is one of the most 'Instagrammable' cities in the world (okay, we may have made that up, but we're pretty sure it's true!). From our incredible wall art, to the stunning architecture; Manchester has plenty of snap worthy corners. In 2015 it was listed as one of the 'must see' cities of the world by the New York Times (and they know their stuff!) with our "array of cultural delights and photogenic streets" we certainly know how to make your Insta feed look cool. With new bars and restaurants opening each month, even us Mancunians find it hard to keep up with the new hot spots, and with most of us loving a cheeky shot or two (with a camera of course) we thought we'd put together our list of most Instagram worthy eateries in the city!
