120-122 Grosvenor Street, Manchester, M1 7HL [map]

Sand Bar is (perhaps a tad embarrassing) a new one for me, it's been open for 14 years but i've only recently first visited it, situated a small jaunt from Oxford Road station and just off Oxford Road itself, from the outside it's not much to look at, situated in the remains of two old restored Georgian houses, in the middle of 'studentville', it's far more than just a student bar though. A member of CAMRA and featuring in the Good Beer Guide they offer a choice (up to 6 real ales on tap) The local Phoenix Brewery Navvy and Timothy Taylor's Landlord both supped on my first visit as well as a range of some rare bottled continental beers and ales.

The quirky interior devotes wall space to local artists, they have a very good jukebox which includes Half Man Half Biscuit, so scores points for that. They are also an environmentally conscious bar too, so good work.
