Dog-Friendly Places in the Northern Quarter

Northern Quarter is a unique and quirky place with many different kinds of shops, bars and restaurants. Northern Quarter is a safe haven for the misfits of Manchester from your Anime lovers, to goths, and it’s a hub for the LGBTQ+ community, and more, to go and shop.

Not only are there places like Afflecks Palace, Night & Day Bar and Foundation Coffee, but there are many other dog-friendly stores in Northern Quarter. To be honest, it’ll be difficult to find a place that isn’t dog-friendly!

Dog-Friendly Businesses in the Northern Quarter

Alongside shops, you’ll find wonderful places to eat and plenty of bars too. You’ll never be short of places to take your dog in the Northern Quarter.

It’s worth bearing in mind that the Northern Quarter is a very popular area of Manchester and these locations can get a little busy for your dog in the late evening on a weekend. Use your best judgement before visiting. With restaurants, we recommend booking in advance and making them aware that you have a dog so they can sit you in the best location.
