This Manchester bar is offering FREE chicken wings for one evening only

The late night live music venue on Quay Street is hoping to banish the January blues by hosting the ultimate wings frenzy this Friday

The Blues Kitchen’s Southern inspired menu features barbecue classics and proper comfort food – think stacked-up burgers, creamy mac n cheese, buffalo hot wings and succulent smoky ribs.

Now, the late night live music venue on Quay Street is hoping to banish the January blues by hosting the ultimate wings frenzy this Friday.

The special offer gives diners two whole hours, from 6pm – 8pm, to devour their signature tangy, spicy buffalo wings served with a blue cheese dip – completely free (usually £7.95 for a small portion or £11.50 for a large).

Even better, from 5pm-7pm you can enjoy signature cocktails for just £5, including their popular Tommy’s Margarita, made with Tequila Reposado, lime and agave – which normally costs £9.50.

Then from 8pm, soak up a live soundtrack of timeless blues and soul from their resident musicians and DJs in the Concert Hall.

The two-storey Blues Kitchen Manchester, which opened last May, comprises of a restaurant and bar on the ground floor and a concert hall on the first floor.

The team behind popular London venues XOYO and Jazz Café launched the music venue, club, bar and restaurant in Manchester, which celebrates their life-long affair with blues music alongside a passion for rare bourbon and obsession with Southern barbecue food.

With Blues Kitchen venues in Camden, Shoreditch and Brixton, the Manchester opening was their first venue outside of London, and their largest to date.

The venue features a gospel roof, constructed with reclaimed 19th century tin plates from a derelict church in Manhattan, as well as a stained-glass ceiling, fashioned with the original stained-glass windows from Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital in New Jersey, where one of the true blues greats, Woody Guthrie, once resided.

An original 1920s Air Stream Caravan has also been revamped and kitted out to create the ultimate retro private party space.

The late night venue is open until midnight on Sundays and Mondays, until 1am Tuesday – Thursday, until 2am on Fridays and 3am on Saturdays.

The free wings will be served from 6pm – 8pm on Friday 14th January at Blues Kitchen Manchester, 13 Quay Street. Sign up here to find out more, or simply walk in.
