Stockport Times East - - SOUNDS WRITE -

DAT­ING can be an awk­ward thing. Those first few meet­ings when you’re first get­ting to know some­one can be par­tic­u­larly fraught with awk­ward pauses, bad jokes and furtive glances.

One way to break the ice and help avoid si­lent mo­ments is to chose a date spot with a v iew.

As a sprawl­ing, industrial cit y, Manch­ester might not be the first place that springs to mind when plan­ning such a date, but t here are ac­tu­ally plent y of op­tions that com­bine good food or drink and stunning v is­tas.

eHar­mony, the on­line dat­ing web­site, has put to­get her t heir favourite venues with a v iew for your next ro­man­tic date.

THE MARK ADDY

In the sum­mer there are few bet­ter places to eat and drink than the sun drenched ter­race of The Mark Addy restau­rant and pub.

Qualit y Bri­tish food can be en­joyed whilst tak ing in t he peace­ful, tran­quilit y of t he River Ir well.

HAR­VEY NI­CHOLS 2ND FLOOR RESTAU­RANT

One of the more glam­orous set­tings on the in­side with a view to match. The light and open dining room of­fers beau­ti­ful panoramic views of Ex­change Square and the Cathe­dral, which are equally as im­pres­sive at night.

Dining op­tions range from el­e­gant mod­ern Euro­pean to a more

ca­sual brasserie.

THE FRENCH

The French, re­cently re­opened by Miche­lin starred chef Simon Ro­gan, is sit­u­ated within the Mid­land Ho­tel.

It’s not t he scener y t hat’s im­pres­sive here; in fact t he restau­rant it­self doesn’t have any win­dows.

The stunning, globe-shaped cr ys­tal chan­de­liers are the cen­tre­pieces of an op­u­lent dining room.

They’re ever y bit as im­pres­sive as a cit y v iew and have been known to mes­merise din­ers.

CLOUD 23

For the ul­ti­mate v iew it has to be Cloud 23, named af­ter its lo­ca­tion on the t went y-third floor of the Deans­gate Hil­ton ho­tel.

The north side over­looks the cit y and out to the moors while the south side looks across the Cheshire Plain.

On clear days you can even see Mount Snow­don in Wales! To cap it off the cock­tails are amongst t he best in t he cit y too. To meet your match here in Manch­ester, visit eHar­mony. co.uk and en­ter MANCHESTER2015
