Adding to their Manchester portfolio, Almost Famous has announced plans to open another burger restaurant in the city. Fans of the burger joint in the south of Manchester will soon be that bit closer to scraning a beast of a burger as Almost Famous opens a branch in Withington.
Taking over a Grade II listed bank at the top of the high street, formerly home to restaurant Libertine, Almost Famous are excited to open in the area, with the owner having lived in south Manchester between Fallowfield and West Didsbury for most of their life. Almost Famous plan to inject all the fun and playful styling that is notorious of the brand into the stunning listed building, including a 10ft gorilla thanks to the site’s high ceilings.
Speaking of the new opening in Withington, Almost Famous said: “This part of Manchester has always been home for me and like a playground between town and Dids… – kebabs at Abdul’s or Monsoon- the 42bus up and down – the Didsbury dozen – when curry’s in Rusholme were a fiver including a beer – Parklife at Platt Fields – Big Hands – feels good to be going into South Manchester.”
Almost Famous Withington will feature a beautiful 120 cover open plan restaurant, cocktail and beer bar and private dining room for groups of up to 40 people, perfect for parties of all sorts. This will be Almost Famous’ first foray into the suburbs and they are aiming for “a friendly neighbourhood vibe”, and on top of the usual dripping with goodness burgers there will be movie nights, quiz nights and the burger joint plans to partner with local businesses too.
Opening on May 26 from 12pm and ready to kick off the bank holiday with banging burgers, Almost Famous will also host a week of celebrations, parties and offers too. Plus, Almost Famous is launching an exclusive Southside burger which is only available at our Withington restaurant. The burger features bacon bacon mayo, cheesy smashed tots, peri BBQ sauce, crispy smoked bacon, jalapeno and onion alongside Almost Famous’ double cheeseburger.
Almost Famous will be launching the Withington restaurant with quite the bang as it is giving away a black card to the first two people in the doors, which entitles them to free Almost Famous burgers for a whole year. On top of that, the first 20 people eat completely free and every single booking over the weekend will get a free bottle of bacon bacon mayo.
Bookings are open now and Almost Famous will also be available on Deliveroo catering to Fallowfield, Burnage, Chorlton, West Didsbury, Didsbury Village and Gatley.
