Jimmy’s Bar, Bowie Tees and 90s Shades

Jimmy’s bar in Manchester’s Northern Quarter has become the place to be. I’ve seen so much hype around the venue online that when I met up with Tia for a photo shoot I just had to check it out.

The venue was set up by brothers Jimmy and George from One Night Only, a band who’s album I once picked up for 99p and fell in love with. Whilst I’m here, hoping the lads read this, I want to mention that the video for Say You Don’t Want It was a. Very bloody clever and b. Very bloody cute.

Anyways, the bar. Jimmy’s has an underground vibe around it – if you didn’t know it was there, you’d miss it. The signage is like an old school cinema, and will change daily to show what gig or event is on that night.


Outfit details

90’s shades – Sparrowhawk Vintage

T-shirt – Nasty Gal

Skirt – Primark

Fishnets – Primark

Boots – DrMartens

Bag – Primark


I ordered a Manchester Martini, a drink I’d seen made on a viral video on Facebook. It features flavours of honey and pineapple for a super sweet and tropical taste, topped with a gold glittery bee.

The red and black decor is a signature look, and the walls are donned with rock ‘n’ roll, music-related pictures and quotes. My personal favourite being an image of Bowie with neon lights as his iconic lightning bolt.

Onto my outfit, which yes – I did wear in order to coincide with the bars theme. This Bowie inspired Rebel Rebel tee is a steal from NastyGal at just £15. I paired it with a black vinyl skirt and fishnets for a grungier look, alongside my oxblood docs. My shades, from Sparrowhawk were just £8 and are screaming 90s – they’re gonna make a comeback this year, I’m telling you. Mark my words, boo.

    This bar looks amazing! And that cocktail, mm, sounds so delicious! Also loving this outfit, your style is so lush x

  2. Black and red has been my jam since I was like 12, it’s still the theme throughout my tattoos and my room so I’m LOVING the look of this! Also One Night Only were a band I loved when I was in my rock boy band obsessed days hahahaha I’m sure I’ve seen them live a few times supporting various other bands like ymas and whatnot! Loving how cheap the outfit was too 😍 need to get myself one of those skirts!
