Located in the heart of Chorlton, an area well known for arts and music, Dulcimer opened in 2007, (appropriately enough on the former site of an art shop), and was instantly dubbed 'the hippest new music venue in Manchester' by The Guardian. The bar rapidly built a strong reputation for itself as a live music platform, primarily within folk and folk crossover genres, establishing a close working relationship with local luminaries of the music industry, including childhood friends Badly Drawn Boy and John Stammers.
Following a refurbishment and a change in management, the bar re-launched in the spring of 2011, and regulars were pleased to see that the transition constituted an upgrade, building upon and enhancing the venue's foundation in live entertainment, without the loss of any of the quirky features which made it so popular. All the favourite entertainment acts were retained and added to, whilst customers also saw an expansion in the range of locally-produced real ales and ciders on offer, so that the bar became an equally strong attraction as the stage.
Dulcimer has two distinct faces: at night it's a thriving music venue and bar. By day, its chilled atmosphere, homely brick walls and soft eclectic background music make it perfect for an informal business meeting, taking advantage of the generously-portioned lunch menu. Alternatively, you can work on your laptop, or surf the Net on the free Wi-Fi. If you fancy being outside, there's a patio on the street, and an intimately-proportioned beer garden to the rear, where you're likely to find poets, songwriters and daydreamers chatting animatedly over a pint on lazy summer evenings, or a band on the fire escape, posing for an album cover photo shoot. It's all part of the atmosphere, illustrating that Dulcimer is not just a bar, it's a destination.

Came here to support friend's band. They had a few on there beforehand and really liked it here. Well worth another trip - lots of nice girls there too!!
Although they don't sell full on food here, I really liked the ploughman style platter we had of nice cheese and pate. Went well with the local guest ales. Will be back
Visited here the other day for the first time....had no idea they had a lovely beer garden at the back. They can shake up a good cocktail too and a clear favourite with the locals.

Ideally placed next to the tram stop, Dulcimer is a great destination bar just 10 mins from Piccadilly. I really like live music so this is my main reason for visiting. Feel safe there too as a girl drinking in a bar outside city centre.
I love this bar. Ace draft ales and lager plus damn good soundtrack too. Very cool bar and I'd say the best in Chorlton by a mile.
