Manchester dating: Meet Manchester singles with us

One of the UK’s most diverse, lively and modern cities, Manchester is a terrific city to enjoy with a partner. But despite being the UK’s second-largest city, with ample places to meet other like-minded singles, sometimes that special someone remains elusive. EliteSingles Manchester dating can help you find someone you are truly compatible with.

Manchester dating: The Manchester singles scene

With busy working schedules and tiring commutes, meeting somebody you really fit with in Manchester can be tricky. Hoping to bump into the dream partner in a bar or club is, for many, somewhat of a long-shot. With getting to know someone properly on a night out hardly the ideal circumstance, and opportunities to meet spontaneously limited in the frantic city rush, it makes sense to join the other Mancunians opting to find love online.

Manchester dating: what to do?

A city steeped in culture and heritage, Manchester is rightly renowned for its array of things to do. From world-famous museums and galleries to cutting edge gastronomy, locals will smugly boast that their city has it all. A truly memorable first date is always a winner, and for this Manchester boasts its fair share of ‘quirky’ date ideas. If you want something more easy-going, a recent survey of our members revealed that almost two-thirds of women prefer to meet for a coffee on the first date.1 A relaxing, intimate coffee-bar could therefore be the best option: try North Tea Power on Tib Street for one of Manchester’s nicest.  

Wherever your date takes you, with EliteSingles you can be confident in finding long-term happiness in Manchester.

Eating Out

If you would rather get to know your date properly over dinner, Manchester boasts some of the UK’s finest restaurants. 63 Degrees is one of the best local options, serving modern French fare in a cosy, family-run environment. And with bars nearby, it leaves the option to extend the date, too!

Nightlife in Manchester

For some, the idea of a formal meal can seem slightly intense for a first date night and they may prefer the classic drinks date instead. Luckily, with more than its share of great pubs and bars, it’s easy to find somewhere intimate and date-suitable in Manchester. Elixir Tonics and Treats is chief among these: it's highly recommended for a date that combines innovation with sophistication. Their speciality is cocktails designed to lift the spirits due to creative touches such as dry ice, edible flowers and fantastic ingredients. They even do a range of cocktail sharing platters; the perfect way to add some romance to an evening.

For something different, a night of comedy always makes for an interesting date choice. The Frog and Bucket is a local favourite, steeped in comedy history. Free on Mondays for up and coming acts, it’s a great idea for a night without any first date awkwardness, and should put you both in a good mood on your evening.
