Map of all 24 hour off licences in Manchester


Looking for shops in Manchester that sell alcohol all night? You’ve come to the right place! This map displays the locations of all 24 hour off licences in Greater Manchester, so you can find your nearest 24 hour shop and buy booze at any time of the day or night. The 24 Hour Alcohol database contains the locations of supermarkets, convenience stores, corner shops, newsagents, petrol stations/garages etc. – basically all retail premises with a licence to sell alcohol 24 hours a day. Don’t forget, Sunday trading restrictions prevent large supermarkets (such as Tesco, Asda etc.) opening 24 hours on Sundays (so they’re no good for buying booze after a Saturday night out on the town). An alternative to visiting a 24hr shop is to order drinks from one of a number of services providing on-demand delivery, see Alcohol Delivery Manchester for details.



Since the pandemic, Asda is the only large supermarket chain with superstores open 24 hours. Many other 24 hour shops and petrol filling stations in our database are still open for business as usual 24/7 so you shouldn't have a problem finding booze anytime, however, some retailers are still, even now, operating reduced opening times, therefore we highly recommend phoning ahead to check that your local 24 hour shop is open as normal to avoid a wasted journey. The map on this page shows 24 hour alcohol licences issued in the areas specified but you can also use our 24 hour shop locator tool to display nearest shops with 24hr licences based on your current location (which is useful if you're located near the edge of the above map). If you spot any errors with our 24 Hour Alcohol database, please hit the Report Incorrect Data button to quickly let us know. Cheers!

Unfortunately a lot of shops with 24 hour alcohol licences in Greater Manchester don’t actually open 24 hours and some shops that do open 24 hours, don’t have 24 hour alcohol licences. Confused? So were we… that’s why we created the 24 Hour Alcohol website, to help people find out exactly which supermarkets, convenience stores and petrol filling station forecourts in Manchester are licensed for 24 hour alcohol sales. We’ve tried to include opening times and phone numbers of premises where possible but can’t guarantee their accuracy.

In Manchester City Centre, there’s a lack of shops selling booze 24 hours, so we’ve added some shops with late licences to our database. Any premises in the 24 Hour Alcohol database that aren’t licensed for the full 24 hours are clearly stated. As always, we would suggest calling ahead to confirm the shop will be open and selling alcohol at the time of your visit.

The 24 hour offies in Greater Manchester are licensed by the following 10 licensing authorities: Bolton, Bury, City of Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan.

If you’re not in the mood to go out to your local 24 hour shop and would prefer to order booze for home delivery, see Alcohol Delivery Manchester to order online from one of Manchester’s 24 hour alcohol delivery services. A range of alcoholic beverages are available, including beer, wine, cider, spirits, shots, alcopops, soft drinks and extras such as cigarettes/tobacco, rolling papers, snacks and even hot takeaway food.

Please Note: Just because a shop has applied for, and been granted, a 24 hour alcohol licence, doesn't necessarily mean that it is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In some areas, there are many shops that have decided not to open all night, even though they are licensed to sell alcohol 24 hours. It's also worth noting that on Sundays, large supermarkets over 3000 sq ft (Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Lidl, Aldi, Waitrose, Marks & Spencer, Iceland etc.) are only permitted to open for a maximum of six hours due to Sunday trading laws in England and Wales, therefore large 24 hour supermarkets can only open all-night on week nights including Friday nights - so don't get caught out on a Saturday night! Where possible, we've listed opening times of stores but these should only be used as a guide, as trading hours of individual shops may change from time to time, especially on Bank Holidays. We've tried to include the phone number for each 24 hour off licence so you can confirm opening times before setting off on your quest for 24 hour booze. If you're planning to visit a 24 hour supermarket operated by one of the large supermarket chains, you may prefer to use their store locator to check opening times. Every effort has been made to ensure the information published on this website is correct but 24 Hour Alcohol assumes no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions. Please let us know if you do spot any errors, either by using the contact form, the inbuilt error reporting facility or by calling us on 020 8144 2424 and leaving a voicemail. If there isn't a shops open around-the-clock near you, it may still be possible to almost instantly get alcohol after hours from a local on-demand delivery service.
