5 cocktail bars you have to try!

From Manhattans to Martinis and Pisco Sours to Pina Coladas, the art of making cocktails involves fresh ingredients, an extensive knowledge of flavours and passion. 'Going out for cocktails' is exciting and we're sharing the best cocktail bars Lancashire has to offer.


Lonely People, Preston


Located on Winckley Street, Lonely People Cocktail Bar takes you out of the ordinary and into a world of experimental cocktail making. Their original cocktails feature locally sourced, foraged and homemade ingredients and the menu changes every few weeks. These innovative drinks are created by their very own bartender, who has worked in the well-known cocktail scene in Berlin. Lonely People is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 6pm to 2am, and Fridays and Saturdays 5pm to 4am.


Tipple, Lancaster


Tipple wanted to create a venue with a little bit of something for everyone: reasonably priced great quality cocktails, as well as a strong range of delicious spirits, beers, wines and non-alcoholic drinks. They wanted a bar that focused on creating a relaxed atmosphere to chill with friends and enjoy a drink or two.


When you're as passionate about quality drinks as they are, cocktails are second nature and they're proud of the great range of drinks they've crafted for you. Grab some mates, get your lips round a delicious cocktail and pop downstairs for a game or two of ping pong in their snug!
