The Manchester Jazz Festival returns later this month with a huge number of gigs going on from 23rd-27th May at the festival hub in St Ann’s Square and at venues around town.
Venues to be announced so far include YES, Matt & Phred’s, Night & Day, The Whiskey Jar, St Ann’s Church, The Royal Exchange studio and the RNCM – and there are plenty of fringe goings on to check out, too.
Getting into the spirit of the festival, King Street Townhouse will be hosting their own fringe event on Friday 17th May with an exclusive live jazz dining experience.
They’ve put together an evening of melodic and sultry jazz, accompanied by a delicious dinner prepared by the talented kitchen team.
Taking place in the sophisticated settings of their New York-inspired dining room the Tavern, it looks like the perfect event to get you in the mood for an unmissable week of the city’s finest performances at the Manchester Jazz Festival.
The live jazz element to the night will be provided by duo Lucy Mae and Luc Phan, well known around town for their jazz-infused soul and RnB performances.
As for the menu, the kitchen will be cooking up some all time favourite flavours and signature dishes.
From treacle-cured salmon to slow-cooked short rib and ricotta and ratatouille-stuffed courgette, there are some mouth-watering savoury dishes to choose from. And the sweets look pretty good too.
All you need to do is sit back at your candlelit table, indulge, and let the sweet sounds of soulful jazz carry you through the night.
In keeping with the intimacy of the Tavern, tickets are limited and expected to go fast. Priced at £45 including a three-course meal and live entertainment, this sounds like a perfect date night to us.
Be sure to arrive for 6.30pm. The music starts at 7pm.
