Dive NQ Launch Night- Bites, Beats & LiquorSaturday, December 12, 2015
Last week I was invited to the launch night of Dive NQ on Tib Street in Manchesters Northern Quarter, they had invited along a number of local bloggers as well the press.
As we walked in the first thing that surprised me how much space there is. There seems to be a vast amount of space, there is plenty of different seating choices from standard tables, booths, comfy chairs and they have the flexibility to hire out sections of the space.
There was a really good atmosphere and they had live music which I really enjoyed, the singer had a sort of Imelda May type vibe but I'm shockingly bad and hearing and knowing what music is what so I hope I haven't got that totally wrong! I've been googling to try and find her name but google is failing me.
My lovely friend had come with me and we had a good catch up while we samples the wine, a cocktail and a drink that I'm still not sure I loved but was interesting and worth trying. The brand is called Blind Pig Cider and there were three flavours. We picked out the Whisky, honey & Apple flavour. It didn't have a strong whisky flavour and it went down easily.
As well as the complimentary drinks they brought round some sampling platters of the food, from the food we tried the spicy prawns and the pulled pork sliders were a massive hit and peanut butter brownies alone are worth a visit.
I've just been looking at the menu and I think I'd like to try almost everything on it and hope to arrange to go back with the girls for taco's and cocktails.
While we were their we got invited to have a turn of the tombola and I won £40 in We are COW Vouchers, I've spent plenty of time window shopping at their old store when it was in Piccadilly gardens. I hadn't twigged they were one and the same on the night. I need to find time to go in and spend the vouchers. I've spotted a couple of handbags on the website so I've got high hopes for finding something I love in store.
I did also record a few clips of the night and talk about the contents of the goodie bag we were given on the way out.
A massive thank you to the team for making us feel welcome and putting on a really great night.
