The super stylish cosy caravans you can hire in a hidden rum garden

DIECAST, Manchester's post-industrial warehouse bar, kitchen, performance space, creative neighbourhood, and dance floor, has officially opened up its beer garden Rum Caravans.

Hailing from caravan parks across the country, the four vintage holiday homes were almost ready for retirement before being salvaged and restored by the expert team at DIECAST.

Now they’re ready for day-trippers and night owls.

DIECAST’S Rum Caravans

The ideal space for private dining, drinking and party experiences, guests can relax in the comfy, low-lit booths, upholstered in premium corduroy.

Book a booth for parties of 4 – 12 or a whole caravan for up to 40 guests.

The décor combines holiday nostalgia with smart, cosy cabins – think cuckoo clocks, vintage suitcases, reclaimed wooden walls and herringbone flooring.

LENO Food and Drinks at DIECAST

The Leno Burger

The cherry on top, the whole LENO food and drinks menu is available to order from the comfort of the caravan.

Feast on their new ‘NeoPan’ pizza, with an inflated, airy crust, reminiscent of Neapolitan pizza, matched with the crisp yet chewy base of New York pizza Toppings are expertly sourced artisanal ingredients, like Calabrian ‘soppressata piccante’ (cured boar’s head), delicate broccoletti, fennel sausage and sweet Sicilian baby datterini tomatoes for the marinara.

LENO burgers are another crowd-pleaser – dry-aged Angus short rib and brisket patty, loaded into a beautiful, house-made potato brioche roll, and stacked with the perfect balance of onion, gherkins, aged cheddar and classic American cheese for the melt, and finished off with a really great burger sauce.

The vegetarian burger is equally indulgent – a plant-based burger patty, loaded with caramelised onions, pickles, aged cheddar, and that winning Leno burger sauce, with a vegan option available.

Small Plates at DIECAST

The small plates feature a variety of Italian-inspired dishes, from heritage tomatoes with basil and sherry vinegar to roasted beetroot with labneh, candied orange and rosemary roasted pecans, and Calabrian chicken wings.

The House of Daiquiri

Plenty of Daiquiris to choose from

Paired with housemade Neapolitan flatbreads, known as Piadinos, that To keep guests quenched, The House of Daiquiri offers 49 combinations of frozen daiquiri.

The signature cocktail menu features our housemade falernum in specialty cocktails such as the ‘Turbo Mojito’, and ‘Corn & Oil’, paired delightfully with Bacardi Ocho and overproof Takamaka.

Signature spritzes are on hand to refresh, and for the beer lovers – craft beers from the likes of Deya and Northern Monk. Well-sourced
brut Prosecco from Veneto, and a tight selection of wines, from Portugal, Spain, Italy, France and Germany, to round the menu off.

The caravans are perfect for get-togethers on late summer evenings and will become cosy shelters as the evenings draw in. To book a caravan – or just a bit of one – DIECAST is taking reservations at: [email protected]
