About Us

Proof was born in 2007 from a desire to combine the service quality and premium drinks of city centre cocktail bars with the warmth and comfort of your local.

Great drinks served with passion has always been our philosophy. Serving up brilliant beverages, seasonal food and a friendly atmosphere, all on your doorstep is what we thrive on as we aim to provide the kind of experience we look for on an evening out.

Our food aims to encourage an atmosphere of social eating with our great selection of handmade small plates and bar snacks; so order a few plates and share amongst your table.

Open daily, we hope you will enjoy your time with us; sit in the sun with a beer; wine and dine with friends; drink some of the best cocktails in Manchester, late into the night; perhaps pop in for a post-work Martini; recharge with snacks & a smoothie; or just spend the night with us…


Tables are available for reservation at any time – BOOK NOW

We love to host parties so if you have a larger celebration coming up we’d love to hear from you.  We offer discounts on drinks and catering for groups of 10 or more. Venue hire is also available midweek.
