Taking the pandemic by the balls and proving that the hospitality sector is as important as ever before, wellbeing-themed coffee house and bar Feel Good Club defied all odds when it opened back in 2020 – bringing a cafe concept to the city that we’d never experienced before. A rarity here in Manchester.
The brainchild of wives Kiera and Aimie, the Feel Good Club took up residence in the newly refurbished Hilton House just two years ago – with feel-good vibes on offer and a mission to ‘make you feel good’ following every visit. And opening amidst an ever-changing, ever-confusing pandemic didn’t stop the duo, either, with a successful first two years under their belts, showing their true Mancunian resilience.
Serving up delicious brunch and light lunch dishes, coffee, wine, cakes and treats Monday through Sunday, the chilled coffee house aims to unite the community by channelling wellbeing and positive vibes in a calming environment – which sees not only space to wind down with a hot beverage, but also the opportunity to take part in special events such as yoga sessions, wellbeing talks, and even pop-up galleries for local artists to showcase their work.
If that wasn’t all, the Feel Good Club has also had their very own coffee roasted by Manchester-based Heart And Graft, providing the perfect blend of happiness in a cup for coffee lovers. In terms of providing the positive vibes, around the venue you’ll find supportive messages to remind you to keep on going, including lovely quotes in the windows such as “It doesn’t matter who you love… Just remember to love yourself too” and “You don’t have to pretend you’re okay if you’re not”.
Local suppliers and supporting others is at the heart of what the Feel Good Club does, with Mental Health First Aid trained staff members, locally sourced produce available and spirits, food and more created by Manc-based makers.
Open every day of the week from 9am-6pm, guests can enjoy a truly safe space at the Feel Good Club, whether a member of the LGBTQ+ community looking for community-friendly events to attend, or just someone in need of a proper coffee break.
