Due to open this year, Co-op Live is already shaping up to be a really exciting new string to Manchester’s bow, with investment from our very own golden boy, Harry Styles. It has now been revealed that the arena will be home to the UK’s most luxurious live music members’ club, The Bentley Record Room.
The stunning designs of the Co-op Live members’ club have been released, and it looks the absolute biz. Designed by the Bentley Motors Design Team, the space replicates the custom finishes and designs of its luxurious cars and will include low carbon Beluga leather seating and expertly crafted Bentley Home furniture.
Luxe members will have access to the space before, during and after events at Co-op Live, with the best tickets to live shows as well as access to an exciting range of special events in The Bentley Record Room.
The 100-capacity members’ club at Co-op Live will offer the ultimate in luxury and intimacy for music fans, boasting high-end dining options, a private host and waiter service, designated parking, and a VIP entrance to the venue. Membership to the club is expected to sell out almost immediately, so prepare yourself if you want in!
Christoph Hohmann, Global Head of Brand Communications at Bentley Motors, says: “We are delighted to offer music lovers a dedicated Bentley Place – an environment that is as luxurious and cosseting as the interior of a Bentley – allowing them to experience the craftsmanship, beauty and luxury that you can find in each one of our cars but on a much larger and totally immersive scale.”
Sam Piccione is the President of OVG International, the global sports and entertainment company investing in Co-op Live. He said: “Bentley is number one in British luxury, so it’s the exemplar brand to name this unique room.
“As the UK’s first private luxe members’ club inside an arena, The Bentley Record Room will put Manchester ahead of anywhere else, including London, for unrivalled quality entertainment. There’s no doubt it will be one of the best and most lavish places to enjoy live events anywhere in the world.”
The Co-op Live project is injecting £365m of private investment into the North West, with the arena being one of the world’s premier music and entertainment venues, rivalling New York’s Madison Square Garden, The Forum in LA and The O2 in London.
The arena will be based on the Etihad Campus, and is set to boost the local economy by over £1.5bn over the next 20 years.
