With a one million pound investment, the Infamous Diner is pretty in pink and ready for a starring role in the NQ must-go to bars and restaurant scene.
“…perfect diner that
comes straight out of
‘Back to the Future’
The 1950’s inspired ‘all American’ diner with more than a side of the Northern Quarter, will open with a stateside splash and VIP party on July 23 – officially open to customers on July 24th.
Open from 7am until late seven days a week (9am on Sunday) and with capacity for more than 80, MAD (Mark Andrew Developments) the name behind favourite hot spots Rosylee, Walrus and Hula among others, promises big flavours, big plates and service with a smile from its 50’s styled servers.
With no expense spared, there’s a perfect ‘back to the future’ marble counter with raspberry pink booths, silver ceiling and LA neon lighting throughout, creating a stunning setting for cocktails, food and fun, including a juke box with retro tunes from the era.
In true diner spirit, there’s also free refills on filter coffee, an authentic American breakfast menu that includes pancake stacks and waffles with maple syrup available through the day, as well as hot dogs, burgers, shakes, fries and sides, all created by Group Executive Head Chef, Chris Byron and starting from £3.75 for a breakfast.
MAD’s mixologists have also been working up a new cocktail menu that will put Infamous firmly on the bar map with American Bourbon classics including the Maple Manhattan and Salted Caramel Old Fashioned. Plus the newly created Infamous Invents list, with concoctions that include the Coconut & Lychee Margarita, Californian Caiprinha and Palm Springs, starting from £6.
“Manchester thinks it has had American diners before but there has been nothing like the Infamous Diner,” said Mark Andrew, Managing Director.
“We have created the perfect diner that comes straight out of ‘Back to the Future’, Hairspray and all the classic movies. The name sums it up. It will be Infamous and we can’t wait to open the doors on a new experience for Mancunians.”
Bosses at Infamous Diner will be giving away 300 burgers on 23 July ahead of the launch, so customers can try a sneak preview of what’s to come.
￼￼And the Basil Street diner will hold its VIP launch party that evening, with a full American razzmatazz opening, including cheerleaders, music from The Northernettes, 50s dress and DJ for a celebrity packed launch.
