New food, beer and much more hall DieCast opened in spectacular fashion back in July, with its cocktail fueled Leno Ex Machina season, full of urban good vibes, resurrecting the Diecast factory from Manchester’s industrial heyday. For Christmas, the new 50,000 square foot beer hall and warehouse kitchen takes over the main factory floor, with a festive twist, alongside the brand new DIECAST Winter Trailer Park and Night Market, festively named Winterhood.
Featuring a NYC bodega, karaoke corner shop, hot chocolate and vintage stalls for the winter party season, Winterhood provides all that Christmas market good stuff within the exclusivity of a venue, offering quirky additions including the Winter Trailer Park, featuring DIECAST’s signature rum caravans.
Taking over the main factory floor is the ‘Brooklyn Beer Hall’ (Manchester’s largest Brooklyn inspired Beer Hall), dubbed ‘The Fairytale of NYC’, serving steins, brats and bagels, alongside an Italian Prosecco and Black Martini bar, all around a new Beer Hall Band Stand. The team is making use of every nook and cranny with a Karaoke Corner-shop and a classic NYC Bodega serving fresh bagels.
The Christmas festival continues outside into the Winter Trailer Park, which transforms the legendary rum caravans into a haven for Christmas parties with campfires, doughnuts, marshmallow toasting, winter garden, a dance floor and sparkling lights. It’s pretty much all you need to winter in Manchester’s new creative neighbourhood.
Located between Store Street and Ducie Street, behind Manchester Piccadilly train station, DIECAST is the latest concept from the team behind Ramona and The Firehouse. The 5,000 capacity venue continues to open in phases, with Winterhood being the second, so there’s no telling what anarchy next year’s events will herald… in the best way possible.
Winterhood is coming… bookings are now open for November 1 – December 30 here.
DIECAST is located at 51 Ducie St, Manchester M1 2JQ.
