Are you looking for rooftop bars in Manchester? YES is the place to be, with a beer garden, a sky-high terrace to enjoy, delicious street cuisine, and a roster of live music. There’s enough to keep you entertained, from DJs to musicians to club nights. YES, on all four floors. Every day at noon. Pizza from Pepperoni Playboy and Firebird Hope. YES brings a little bit of everything to Charles Street, from an auction house to one of Manchester‘s best new venues. The venue is spread across four stories and includes a dark basement that functions as a club. An extensive social eating space on the ground level is adorned with brightly colored booths and strives to keep pricing cheap, with bargains on the resident pop-up kitchen till the evening.
The warehouse-style area also has a bright pink performance room with a regular lineup of live bands and sizzling DJs. Go to the top to reach the roof terrace, a pleasant space with outdoor seats, turquoise beams, and many plants. Few music venues can legitimately assert that they provide something for everyone; YES, on the other hand, has always done things differently. Since its creation in 2018, it has been challenging to picture the city without YES. The venue, the brainchild of legendary Manchester independent promoters Now Wave, is famous for catering to various styles over its four levels without sacrificing any of its flairs. Though Manchester’s weather may have other intentions on occasion, YES’ rooftop bar may be the city’s best vantage point for sipping a martini and gazing out over the post-industrial city skyline.
Expect DJs on the roof during long summer evenings. The primary live music location at YES is the Pink Room. The Pink Room, with a capacity of 250, is home to established musicians on the rise – and Now Wave is uniquely connected to the most intriguing upcoming talent. During the day, the Pink Room holds film screenings and independent retail fairs. As you approach Charles Street, the main bar on the ground floor is a popular spot for a talk and a catch-up, whether over a coffee or one of the venue’s superb craft beer selections. On weekdays and weekends, DJs spin everything from dance and soul to house and global funk in the main bar, rapidly transforming into an impromptu dance floor. And finally, YES’ 60 capacity basement venue space remains your most vital chance of seeing next year’s hottest new act.
