What’s uh, the deal?
It’s Boho Manchester, cool Manchester, modish Manchester, funky but chic Manchester.

It’s the Northern Quarter: a land of crumbling cotton factories, sky-scraping fire-escapes, Bohemian bars, downhome hidden spaces, cult markets, chic galleries and cardamom-scented, sizzingly-cheap curry cafes; a style haven shaped in marble, steel and beechwood, with streets named in Mediterranean tiles and pavements slabbed in mosaic.

There’s even a great history of political turmoil, a stretch of the last remaining back-to-back houses in the area, a recording studio where the very essence of the music that Manchester enthralled the world with was cut, a number of Life on Mars locations and Mick Hucknall’s favourite curry cafe.

* It’s old Manchester renewed and new Manchester refreshed. It’s good. It’s modern.
