Neighbourhood wine bar, Flawd, is to launch a summertime pop-up wine bar at Pollen over four weekends in July and August.
Bottles of natural wine will be available, alongside bread from Pollen Bakery, British cheese, charcuterie from Curing Rebels and produce from Cinderwood Market Garden.
From the team behind Higher Ground, Flawd will focus on natural, low intervention wines and local beer.
It will open in a permanent location in the burgeoning New Islington neighbourhood in September 2021.
With a spotlight on small-scale wine producers, Flawd will have a constantly changing wine list encouraging curiosity and enabling discovery.
The aim is to make natural wine approachable to anyone and everyone and centres the attention on bottles to share with friends.
Set in Manchester’s New Islington neighbourhood, Flawd is the ideal destination for an after work drink, an aperitivo before dinner, or a few drinks before a night out in surrounding neighbourhoods Ancoats or the Northern Quarter.
Flawd will have both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as functioning as a take-away bottle shop, making it the perfect addition to Manchester’s already booming natural wine scene.
Flawd will serve small plates of British cheese as well as charcuterie and ferments from the award-winning Curing Rebels based in Brighton.
The wine bar is the first permanent location from the team behind Higher Ground and Joseph Otway, former head chef at Stockport’s Where The Light Gets In.
“We really just want to open a neighbourhood wine bar for the growing New Islington community; to create a space for people to drink great wine, relax and have fun,” said Joseph.
