Overview

A hidden gem. The Fitzgerald is an atmospheric drinking den, with splendid décor and a vintage vibe. "A touch of Great Gatsby glamour in the Northern Quarter" Design My Night Winner, Best Cocktail Bar. Just like the secret drinking spots of the prohibition era, The Fitzgerald has an air of mystery with its back street entrance and dark and moody interior. It channels the classic speakeasy perfectly, with 1920s glassware and vintage décor and is renowned for its delicious cocktails and lively playlist. Every Thursday evening the venue comes alive, as local musicians play live jazz and blues until the early hours, and at the weekend DJs extended this with a mix of soul, disco and funk.

The sort of place you’d call a ‘hidden gem’. We popped in for a quick drink on our way to meet friends. Primarily a champagne and cocktail bar, with retro decor (bit tired), and smashing service from attentive staff who come to your table /...More

Excellent cocktails - the person behind the bar really knew what she was doing. Try the sazerac! A nice chilled atmosphere ( at least on a Sunday night when I visited).

Great decor inside, very well made drinks even though not all available when busy as some take too long to make apparently. The place was full of your standard northern quarter revellers really and didn't have a chilled out feel due to the pretty loud...More
