Nice bar

Came here after going for something to eat with my boyfriend. The cocktails here are nice and the atmosphere is really nice. I would go back again.

My girlfriend bought me here for follow up drinks after our meal and we quickly got stuck into the cocktails menu. We managed to get seated in the back room. We would definitely recommend it

I spent a very enjoyable evening in this bar on a busy Saturday evening. Friendly staff, good choice of drinks and excellent range of music. A few Retro tunes played for the younger crowd had me smiling, as They were the tunes of my youth :) I would return to this bar again

I've been a kosmonaut regular for a number of years and its good to see this bar is still going strong. The beer selection is incredible and the back bar looks pretty good too. Music is spot on! Nice to hear Rock/alternative music being played on a weekend. Staff are very attentive, knowledgeable and are happy to recommend a beer... More

Lacklustre approach to service . I'm happy to pay more than expected for drinks and a night out when the service matches what your your expected to pay but staff drinking whilst working and preferring to drink at the end of the bar instead of serving paying customers a bit hard to digest. I'm fully aware this is the NQ... More

After reading a review of The Hip Hop Chip Shop we decided to visit for lunch. Friendly staff and loads of beers to choose from. Food was great and next visit to Manchester we will be back!

Hi Geoff, thanks for your feedback. You may have noticed on your visit that we stock around fifty different craft beers in various formats and of course the pricing does vary. It would be good to know what beer you selected, perhaps it was an interesting beer that is a rarity or one with a high abv as of course... More

Had to have lager due to lack of draught ales. Any place that serves schooners makes me worried. Tall seats too rickety, especially on an uneven floor. Manchester: you can do so much better
