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.
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.
