Why should I use VenueScanner?

Matching event organisers and interesting spaces is our thing. Always has been. When our founder, Rebecca Kelly, first started VenueScanner, she wanted to showcase underappreciated spaces right across the UK. We started in London, and have since spread to lots of cities and towns around the country.

It’s resulted in us helping people to find venues for all types of events. We’ll find you a space for a local ballet class, birthday party venue and team meeting. We’re also on hand to recommend venues for larger events for B2B companies, like award ceremonies, conferences and team away days. No event type is out of the question when booking through VenueScanner.

We’ve picked out some of the best venues with rooftop hire in Manchester available for lots of different group sizes and event types. Simply have a search for a suitable venue by clicking any of the links above or use our Venue Finder form here.

How to choose a Manchester Rooftop Venue

The date

These venues get booked up quickly so it’s always good to have some flexibility when looking for a rooftop venue in Manchester. Fridays and Saturdays are typically the most popular and costs can be cheaper for off-peak days and times.

Flexible space

Rooftops are typically used for standing receptions, however it’s good to make sure your space has some seating areas and poseur tables so that guests have somewhere to put their drinks and relax if their feet are getting tired. 

Accessibility is key, especially if you have disabled guests in your group. It’s important to check whether your chosen venue has lift access and facilities. Having a private bar for your guests would mean they don’t have to queue for their drinks.

Location, Location, Location

If you have a large group of guests attending you may want to look at venues with good transport links or with car parking close by.


Long gone are the days of beige buffets. Our city is known for being a haven for foodies and the best rooftop venues in Manchester have raised their game. 

Venues can put together bespoke menus to impress your guests, whether it be for a summer BBQ, bowl food from around the world or a delicious selection of canapes. Why not pair your catering with a cocktail that is themed around your event, an alternative to the classic fizz on arrival.
