The nights are going to get longer, the weather’s going to get a bit colder (probably), but there are plenty of venues to hide away from the outside including some Northern Quarter mainstays, a lot of unlimited booze, and some brand new openings. See below for our collection of the 10 best deals this September.

1. £6 Italian-inspired lunch and a drink at Veeno
Every weekday, Manchester wine bar Veeno offer lunch with an alcoholic drink for just £6. With Italian inspired paninis and salads, the wine lovers say they aim to reclaim lunchtimes with options such as Italian tuna and fresh mozzarella to go with your beer or wine.
Veeno, 14 Brazennose Street, Manchester M2 6LW. Tel: 0161 839 6742

2. Half price at Don Giovanni’s
Another Italian is reopening on September 10th, and the celebrate Don Giovanni’s refurb after their fire is offering 50% off all food when booked in advance. The deal runs through September and is available every day.
Don Giovanni’s, Peter House, 1-2 Oxford Street, Manchester M1 5AN. Tel: 0161 228 2482

3. £5 cocktails at Trof – pictured
Whilst most places reserve their drinks offers for slow weekdays, Trof are offering Saturday night drinkers their cocktail menu for just £5 each. With classic offerings as well as Trof specials, this is one of the cheapest places for a cocktail on a weekend in the Northern Quarter. If weekdays are more your thing, half price food on a Monday will have you sorted.
Trof, 8 Thomas Street, Manchester M4 1EU. Tel: 0161 833 3197

4. Oktoberfest offers at Ply
Whilst pizza is more of an Italian jam, Ply are getting into the German swing of things with a special menu for 10 days from Monday 24 September. With a Oktoberfest special pizza of bratwurst and caramelised onions, joined by a selection of German beers, the signs of European cooperation are alive and well. You can get two steins and a pizza for just £15.
Ply, 26 Lever Street, Manchester M1 1DW. Tel: 0161 711 0401

5. £40 for 3 courses + unlimited wine at Wood
We mention this every month, because it’s just too good not to go on about. Masterchef winner Simon Wood’s restaurant has been making a name for itself as offering fine dining for a while now. However, if the price tag is sometimes a bit steep you can treat yourself every Wednesday to three courses and unlimited wine for £40. They expect you to be sensible, but this is an offer to put a smile on anyone on a wet September Wednesday.
Wood, Jack Rosenthal Street, Manchester M15 4RA. Tel: 0161 236 5211

6. Unlimited wine at TNQ
Another of Manchester’s unlimited wine offers comes in the shape of Northern Quarter stalwart, TNQ, who continue their unlimited wine and 3 courses on a Monday and Thursday (combines it with Wood, and that’s a week to be proud of).
TNQ, 108 High Street, Manchester M4 1HQ. Tel: 0161 832 7115,

7. Mancunian roast at 1761 with complimentary wine
1761, on Booth Street, offers a Sunday roast where all the food is sourced from Greater Manchester. To go along with the low milage chicken, there’s a free bottle of wine with every two roasts ordered – meaning two of you can get fed and watered for under £30. You even get extra gravy if you want it.
1761 Manchester, 2 Booth Street, Manchester M2 4AT. Tel: 0161 714 0414,

8. £1 Pies at newly re-opened Pie & Ale in NQ
The recently reopened Pie & Ale has taken no time in getting back to what it does best. If you like the first of the two items in the name, take a friend and one of the pies will be £1 with any full-priced pie order.
Pie & Ale, Units 1 & 2 the Hive, 47 Lever Street, Manchester M1 1FN. Tel: 0161 228 1610,
