Description: Waxy O'Connors is located in the heart of Manchester's vibrant city centre within The Printworks entertainment complex. Waxy's is regarded as a unique venue with a labyrinth of 3 bars, covering 4 levels and 9 separate areas that are all linked by a maze of staircases & passages.The interior decor features church like timber carvings, stained glass windows & distinctive tiled floors, but most unusual is a 250 year old tree! The Waxy's tree was brought over from Ireland in 2002 and is now at the heart of the pub stretching from the back of Church Bar right up to the Sofa Gallery on the fourth level. A sight you cannot miss on arrival!Waxy's is renowned for creating hearty Irish influenced food, with it's signature dishes being Irish Stew, Clonakilty Black Pudding with Cabbage & Bacon & Stuffed Chicken (a chicken supreme filled with Irish cheddar & Ballymaloe Relish, wrapped in bacon & served on mash with a chive cream sauce)!....and of course you can't beat the All Day Irish Breakfast with black & white pudding! The Bar is well stocked with all the big names and a well selected wine list compliments the menu. The Guinness & Irish Coffee are both Fantastic!Whether you are after somewhere to enjoy a chat over a glass of wine, a bite to eat whilst shopping, a welcome lunch break or an after work get together, a place to cheer on your team or you just want to dance and laugh the night away WE HAVE IT ALL AT WAXY'S!!

Fell upon this bar in the printworks, first look through the door it appears very tiny..... But enter and it opens up to quirky corners, different rooms, stairs themed bits fantastic !!!
Church bar, cottage bar, sofa bar and other that I can't remember but go visit for yourself. Beer is excellent too !

Visited here last summer (June/July) with a group of friends, our main purpose of the visit was to watch our County Down play in the GAA All -Ireland Football Championship (as it was one of the only bars we knew in Manchester showing it) being from Ireland missing your county play football isnt a good thing lol !

We found this place great the barman on that day on the ground floor was lovely guy very friendly and great craic, had some snacks during half time, the chicken wings which were so good we had to have another portion.

Love this wee place and will be back again when im in Manchester again!!
