Corbieres Wine Cavern

Corbieres Wine Cavern has been operating in Manchester for over 25 years and has always played recorded music in the business. The bar plays music through a jukebox to create an atmosphere and encourage customers to spend more time there.

Corbieres has a reputation for playing local music and so therefore the music is their main attraction. The business plays a cross section of all genres with an emphasis on local bands, so tend to shy away from playing mainstream or charity tracks.  

Playing music through a jukebox engages the customers and encourages them to use the jukebox on several occasions.

Many customers come specifically to Corbieres for the selection of music available and the business believes that they wouldn’t be open without music.
