It’s set to open in August.
Following the success of not one, but two bars in Manchester city centre, Scottish-based brewery BrewDog has cast its eyes on a new site – and this time, they’re opening a beer-themed hotel. Submitting a planning application to transform a now-unused three-storey building on Fountain Street, BrewDog has officially shared what the hotel will look like when it finally opens, and it will be a brilliant addition to the city’s diverse hotel offering.
Aptly named the DogHouse, the new hotel will feature 18 bedrooms – all of which will boast shower beer fridges (you know, cos we always get an urge for a beer while we’re cleansing…), Punk IPA on tap in every room, as well as a new rooftop bar complete with a fire pit and taco bar for Mancs to enjoy. There’ll also be a ground floor bar and restaurant.
Guests will be treated to a complimentary beer each upon arrival, with fully stocked beer fridges (which they’ll need to pre-pay for), access to games consoles, record players, guitars, and free brompton bike hire. The hotel will also be fully dog-friendly, so your four-legged friends can enjoy the stay with you.
Up on the terrace, guests will be able to enjoy 10 taps of craft beers available, as well as a casual taco menu keeping in with BrewDog’s signature relaxed style.
James Brown, managing director of bars said: “After DogHouse Columbus was named one of TIME’s top 100 places visit, we knew we were on to a winning combination. We’re excited to be bringing beer fans a second location where they can enjoy all things craft beer from the moment they wake up, to the moment they rest their head.
“It was a no-brainer to open our second DogHouse in Manchester, a vibrant city, known for doing things differently which is very much the spirit of BrewDog. We’re also proud to have not compromised on our Carbon Negative promise throughout the build too. This epic site has been built using sustainable materials and guests can check out our giant living wall as well our roof-top urban jungle, which we think is truly awesome!”
The new hotel will follow in the footsteps of BrewDog’s first UK hotel, Kennels, which is based in Aberdeen (and is also dog-friendly, bonus!), and will sit under the Kennels hotel brand, which also operates a number of venues in the US.
