Best Manchester bars

It's very hard to compile a list of the Top 10 best bars in Manchester that would suit everybody's requirements. Some people love the Continental style independent establishments that sell German wheat beer or the back street boozers with their local ales, others look for the footballer-filled wine bars or chic cocktail bars with their dress-to-impress door policies.
