Re-opened as Southside on 6/7/2020, a bright new look for a taco and tequila Mexican-inspired bar. This concentrates on spirits and food, so no real ale. History: Re-opened in August 2015 with a name change to Solomon's Cafe Bar, a fresh new look, and good to say it was selling cask beer once more. That however was short-lived, with the cask dropped in early 2017. Following an earlier refurbishment in late 2012, the then Solomon Grundy was extended to the rear. It was a modern bar with a Bohemian appeal with full-height windows to the front letting in plenty of natural light, and allowing customers a view of bustling Wilmslow Road. There was a bar to the front which extended to the rear, open area which was a bit of a sun-trap. A downstairs area was used at times for music and DJ nights. Along with beers, they also offered a selection of wines, and cocktails, alongside food in the form of bagels, crepes and pizzas.
