If I ever obtain a massive windfall and have the urge or propensity to create a vintage café / drinking establishment in Manchester’s Northern Quarter I wouldn't bother, as Sugar Junction has already done it. Perfectly.
SJ was the place of choice picked by the lovely Christine from The Fabulous Times, to host her Fabulous Festive Blogger Meet up. Located on Tib street, I walked past it a couple of times as it was dark, and I didn’t want to get too close to the XXX stores (honestly I didn't).
Situated over two floors, the interior is cosy, twee and charming, with pastels, granny couches, flowers in jars, and, of course, vintage china. I was in heaven and felt a little bit mad at myself that I hadn't visited this place before.
I enjoyed two amazing cocktails, both served with little extras in the form of salted pineapples, shortbread and flowers. The cocktail menu, in addition to the afternoon tea menu and food as a whole, looks utterly divine.
The best part, of course, was meeting a whole load of new bloggy folk. I like to think that my own blog has a bit of a vintage ilk to it; however, this pales into insignificance when compared to this uber-vintage maestro’s.
