The area around the pedestrianised Market Street and the Arndale Centre is where most major chain stores are to be found. More upmarket stores(Armani, Boss etc) are around King Street, St Ann's Square and the Triangle. Deansgate used to be a main shopping street but apart from Kendals (big department store) it's a bit so-so these days. Then funky, alternate stores are centred around Afleck's Palace on Church Street in the Northern Quarter.

Your apartment is a bit off to the side of the city centre. But it's still only a 20 minute walk to the farthest corner of the Triangle. Canal Street is about 10 minutes walk.

Sorry can't help with bars.

Hi niallb1

As Cheshire Cat said your not far off the main shopping area and Canal Street being located near Piccadilly Gardens. You could Try the Brunswick on Piccadilly for watching the Sport. You might have a problem getting 12 in some of the pubs so may be wise to split up. Several pubs on Deansgate have screens as do a couple on Peter Street.

Have a good trip

There are lots of pubs and bars where football is shown and all in the city centre. You could try Waves bar or Bar Rogue on Portland Street, quiet close to Piccadilly Gardens but I feel becasue of your numbers you may want to go in the Sports Bar on the balcony at Piccadilly station...Beer, footy and food all in one

Walkabout on Quay Street is quite large and has a number of screens.
