A new restaurant and bar destination is coming to Piccadilly in late September.
Store Street Exchange and Store Street Craft Bar will be on the ground floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel opposite Piccadilly Station.
It will celebrate and showcase the heritage of its location, the city’s travel connection links, and the fabulous personality of its city.
The concept is inspired by Manchester’s industrial background and its forward thinking, inventive identity.
Store Street Exchange will be a ‘breakfast through to dinner’ restaurant with a focus on local suppliers and outstanding, uncomplicated food and drink.
The menu will centre around the rotisserie and grill, from which the best regionally sourced chicken and steaks will be served. High quality ingredients will be used to create simple but magnificent dining experiences – fresh, wholesome, local and great for sharing or solo dining.
Guests will be able to order a whole bird with all the trimmings, steak cooked their favourite way, simple salads, fresh breads, quick bites and fine puddings too.
The environment will be relaxed and informal with an individual design that celebrates the area’s heritage, its status as a key location for the exchange of goods, and its industrial identity.
There’ll be a variety of different seating areas and places to hang out including semi-private dining options and mini-meeting spaces. The restaurant will have its own entrance on Auburn Street and an outdoor terrace.
Store Street Craft Bar will be a stand alone drinking den with a focus on craft beers and cocktails serving a dazzling array of brews including plenty from Manchester’s own fabulous breweries and microbreweries.
The bar will have a brand new entrance from London Road and its own outdoor seating area, providing the perfect place to hang out, catch up over drinks, people watch or dash in for a quality pre-travel beer.
“We can’t wait to open our doors to Manchester,” said DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester general manager Robert Ford.
“Our concept is about bringing something special but uncomplicated to the city – fabulous food and a cracking collection of drinks in a relaxed space… the transformation is now underway and we’ll be back soon with updates”
