Cloud 23 was one of the most perfect afternoon tea experiences I have had. The bar and the view were beautiful and the food was amazing. I came as part of my hen do and the beginning of July and was not at all disappointed. The staff were brilliant - especially the one waitress that predominantly served us. There was... More

Very Exclusive feel, beautiful views once you make it into the bar after a wait. Expected a bit more once in there. The views stole the show, nothing about the actual bar was that special. Drinks were all over £10 each, we sat 5 ft from the bar and they still added 10% tip to the bill. Happy to tip,... More

This was booked as a birthday treat for me. Because we booked we bypassed the queue on the ground floor (much to the annoyance of an angry group of men), and for a price, we had a window table reserved with small welcome cocktails. The drinks were supoer expensive, but it was so nice to sit up there and watch... More

For my birthday my girlfriend and friend took me to cloud 23 in Manchester for the afternoon tea. We arrived and everything was organised very well, we were seated and had great panoramic views over Manchester city. They took our order for drinks we all had different types of tea that were really nice and choice was good. The afternoon... More

Queue for 30-40 minutes to just get in the lift and then once you're finally in the bar, expect to wait 30 minutes for an overpriced drink! We gave up and left the bar before our extortionate drinks had even materialised... pathetic.

Visited quite late on a Friday evening, waited about 10 mins on ground level for a free table, when we got to the 23rd floor it didn't seem too busy, but the guys on the entrance were friendly, so that wasn't a problem. The views from floor 23 are beautiful & are ultimately the reason why you are paying top... More

We came here with friends to celebrate, we were staying at he hotel so made a reservation, which was helpful as it meant we bypassed the long queue. We ordered our first round of drinks, the menu takes a while to read, there is a piece about each cocktail. Thoughts were varied, 2 of us loved ours and 2 were... More
