Giant snow globes and festive fizz as 20 Stories launches an enchanted terrace


It’s already one of Manchester most glamorous outdoor spaces. And soon, the roof terrace at 20 Stories will become an enchanted forest with winter garden globes, foliage and captivating greenery bringing a festive and magical feel high above Manchester.

From 13th November, two giant winter garden globes will be taking over the terrace, with a new seasonal theme based on the concept ‘Into The Woods’. 

The terrace will be transformed into an enchanting garden in partnership with sponsors Moët & Chandon, the renowned Champagne house founded in 1743. 

The winter garden-themed rooftop will offer seasonal drinks, plus a new cocktail menu created by bar manager Stuart McLachlan offering hot and cold cocktails as well as a dedicated Moët & Chandon menu.

Special Moët cocktail creations will include a Champagne Spice with festive flavours of dried fruits, raisins, rich chocolate and crisp Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial, or a sparkling Kir Royale made with fruity creme de cassis.

There’ll also be a special Mulled Toddy with cognac and spiced syrup, perfect for keeping out the winter chill, or Smoke & Mirrors made with heavily peated Islay whisky Ardbeg and Glenmorangie 10 with lime, sugar, mint and a touch of Absinthe.

If they’re not warming enough, the globes will provide an elegant shelter from the Manchester weather throughout the winter months, with blankets and winter accessories as well as additional outdoor heaters. 

“Our aim is to provide a distinctive and festive feel and create a cosy hideaway for the winter months and of course provide plenty of photo opportunities for guests,” says senior marketing manager Becky Wilkes.

“We have worked hard to ensure we are able to offer a totally diverse and unforgettable experience that you can’t get anywhere else in the city.”

Group bookings can be made for the ‘Into The Woods’ themed roof terrace for party sizes of between 6 and 70.
