About us, Waxy O'Connors

The Wonder of Waxy's – Manchester Irish bar and restaurant

Want a pub where you can hideaway in a corner and enjoy the best of Irish food? Or how about one where you can dance the night away with new-found friends? Or a place with leather sofas to sink into while you enjoy a pint of Caffrey's and a chat? At Waxy O'Connor's – an Irish pub in Manchester city centre – you'll find all three.

Waxy's is a labyrinth of three bars covering four levels and nine separate areas, all linked by a maze of wooden staircases and passageways. Each area has its own style and atmosphere – making it the ideal location for big nights out, parties with pals, or quiet get-togethers over a crock of mussels and a bottle of wine.

Our food is varied and changes seasonally. You'll be served only the finest fresh produce and with a fantastic selection of meals and snacks on offer, you'll be spoilt for choice – have a look at our menus here.

We're located in the Printworks – making us a skip away from the MEN Arena. Come to us for your pre-show meal – you'll get a warm Irish welcome and 20% off your food bill if you show your Arena tickets.
