Skinnydip has been spreading the bling love stateside in New York, LA and Las Vegas but now its Manchester's turn for it's bling fix! We have officially landed in Topshop Arndale and what better way to get to know our friends up north than to go for a walkabout in the city centre! From eating in the trendy Northern Quarter to the getting lost in the vast amount of shops in the Arndale we have fell in love with Manchester! Check out the below of what Skinnydip recommends!

EATING: ARRRRIIIIBBBAAAAAA!! Mexican food is always a good shout so when we went to Luck Lust Liquor & Burn (a bit of a mouthful) we knew we couldn't go wrong! We would recommend the Volcano Nachos for staters then the Alabama Slammer for eats. Give their strongest cocktail the 'Largarita' a try but BEWARE, things could get messy!

DRINKING: Stick around the trendy Northern Quarter and check out Terrace NQ. It's a cool bar with stripped back interior. It has a wide range of drinks on the menu and on tap which is always a winner! We were there on a Thursday and the DJ was spinning some LL Cool J, whats not to love?

LUNCH SNACKING: If Gypsy Toast, Pulled Pork Pile Up & Cheeseburger Toasties sounds like something you would be interested in eating then Home Sweet Home is the perfect place for you! Home Sweet Home offers great coffee and AMAZING cakes too, just sit back in its cool contemporary interior and enjoy!

SHOPPING: Guys, check out Oi Polloi. It's a cool menswear store that stocks brands from A.P.C to Folk. It's defiantly a must for every trendy Manchurian male in the city!

SHOPPING: Gals, Ryan's Vintage is a must! With a range of vintage clothing and homeware you could get lost for hours! We can honestly say they have the best selection of Levi's jeans (at reasonable prices!) and Del Boy coats. What more could a girl want in the wintery months?
