24 Hour Off Licences in Greater Manchester
Welcome to 24 Hour Alcohol, the place to find your local 24 hour off licence and alcohol delivery service in Manchester. All licensing authorities in Greater Manchester covered: Bolton, Bury, City of Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan.
New temporary COVID-19 restrictions on alcohol sales times do NOT apply to shops in England, which are still permitted to sell alcohol at their usual times, even during lockdown. So supermarkets, convenience stores & petrol station forecourts with 24 hour alcohol licences can continue to sell alcohol all night. In Wales, all shops must stop selling alcohol between 10pm-6am every night.
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.
Tesco & Asda are the only large supermarket chains that usually operate 24 hour stores but both companies stopped opening 24 hours at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Around half of all Asda stores that opened 24 hours pre-coronavirus have returned to 24 hour trading (except Sundays & Bank Holidays). Tesco only resumed 24 hour opening at some superstores in the run up to Christmas but have now gone back to reduced opening hours at all but 7 stores in the whole of England & Wales. Many other 24 hour shops in our database are still open for business as usual, however, some retailers are operating reduced opening times due to a drop in custom at night caused by all the COVID-19 lockdowns, tier restrictions, nightlife shut down, pub closures etc. therefore we highly recommend phoning ahead to check that your local 24hr shop is open as normal to avoid a wasted journey. If you spot any errors with our 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.
