‘Tis the season to get cosy and the winter terraces are calling our names. Joining the comfy spots for a festive tipple is Manchester’s highest restaurant and bar, 20 Stories, which has launched its annual winter terrace allowing guests to embrace the cold evenings in style.
The terrace at 20 Stories is in partnership with French vodka brand, Ciroc, and there will be five new cocktails on offer for guests to enjoy. Cocktails which have been curated by the 20 Stories bar team in partnership with Ciroc’s team include The Working Turtle – Ciroc , Grapefruit, St Germain and Peach; The Red Scare – Ciroc Red Berry, Cointreau, Peach, Cranberry and Raspberry; and The French Cosmopolitan – Ciroc, Cointreau, Cranberry and Lime.
20 Stories’ famous terrace overlooking Manchester’s growing skyline has been transformed into an enchanted forest, taking huge inspiration from the Scandinavian concept of ‘Hygge’. Along with the partnership, the sky-high restaurant is also launching their brand-new pergolas, offering guests shelter from the elements in their own private space. The outdoor area will feature the newly added pergolas, large lanterns, furry blankets, candles, and real trees dotted around to create a warm forest- like effect.
The pergolas will represent the cosiness of a house in the forest with wooden decorations, warm lights and blankets, whereas the open sections of the terrace will represent the outdoor forests of Scandinavia with real trees and red berry bushes located across the terrace. The three pergolas will have glass doors which allow guests to feel the warmth of the inside and still be exposed to views across the city.
Natasha Davies, D&D Marketing Manager of the North, said: “Every year we look forward to launching our winter terrace, and this year is no exception! Our aim is to provide a cosy, warm and magical wintry feel that overlooks our wonderful city for those festive celebrations with friends, family and colleagues and to be working with global alcohol brand, Ciroc will really help us bring this to life.”
Pergolas are bookable for lunch and dinner Monday – Sunday and will hold different party sizes, making it a great option for celebrations and events. Book your spot at the 20 Stories winter terrace here.
