An Ever-Changing Pop-Up Restaurant Is Set To Open At The Great Northern

The new dining concept will bring together a number of local restaurants.

Adding to our brand new bustling alfresco dining scene, the Great Northern is utilising its huge outdoor space this summer – with a brand new ‘community kitchen’ set to launch tomorrow.

Providing a COVID-safe space for restaurants who aren’t fortunate enough to have an outdoor dining space of their own, the new pop-up restaurant will allow local hospitality businesses to take over the kitchen for a five-day period, with an ever-rotating roster of restaurants taking part.

There’s a whole host of city favourites signed up to take part already, with Evuna officially kicking off the opening week with a menu of Spanish tapas, starting from tomorrow (August 5) at 12 noon. Already lined up as part of the jam-packed schedule are Salvi’s, South Manny Flavaz, and Evuna – with many more under wraps for the coming weeks.

Running Wednesday – Sunday every week, diners will be able to enjoy the great outdoors in the sunshine, with table service provided for both food and drinks (more specifically, Estrella, which will be the official drink sponsor of the pop-up restaurant!).

On the announcement of Great Northern’s restaurant on the square, Centre Director Mark Schofield said: “Housing so many brilliant bars and restaurants here at the Great Northern we really want to do what we can to help the hospitality business get back on its feet. A lot restaurants don’t have the luxury of outdoor seating, so we’ve created an outdoor dining space that can hold 50 diners in the heart of the Manchester.”

Booking is not required, and guests can simply turn up on the day at the Great Northern’s bustling square.
