Forget the slopes!

Bar Hütte, our favourite ‘Alpine Après Ski’ village has returned to Spinningfields for another year of cosy cocktails, live entertainment and karaoke in hüttes.

Located in the middle of Spinningfields Square, in Deansgate Road, Bar Hütte is the perfect place to wander in for after-work drinks, a spontaneous date night or a post-Christmas shopping treat.

And nothing says ‘Christmas party season’ like a mic and a festive tune, which is what Bar Hütte do best. Included in their private hüttes, (which accommodate up to 10 people) are ‘Carol-oke’ machines where you can sing your heart out to seasonal favourites or go for chart-toppers – meanwhile, drinks are brought right to your table by your private host.
