After taking the Manchester pizza scene by storm last year – despite its arguable over-saturation – Nell’s Pizza has expanded further, providing a brand new home for the beloved NYC pizza spot. One of few places in Manchester that pizza lovers can get their hands on New York-style slices bigger than your head, the pizzeria – which found life as part of the NQ’s Common – has taken over a brand new site at Kampus, providing a chilled out spot to eat, drink and be social.
Originally set to be an extension of the Common brand, the new site – formerly named the Cornerstone pub – marks Nell’s first-ever fully dedicated restaurant, where guests can chow down on 22″ pizza pies, signature cocktails and Nell’s new ice cream sandwiches.
Acting as a standalone ‘Slice Bar’ where you can pop in for a quick slice all day and late into the evening – with room for large bookings to enjoy the space, too – guests are treated to a range of snacks and cocktails, including the Nell’s Sbagliato, Nell’s Spritz, and Nell’s Sour. The classic pizza menu – which includes faves such as the Original Cheese and Do You ‘Roni Honey? – is joined by a new Detroit-style focaccia creation, which is topped with Nell’s very own marinara sauce for a saucy finish.
But the real fun is saved for Sundays, with bottomless slices, bottomless drinks and DJ’s taking over for their new Sunday Pizza Social. To wash it all down with, expect 17 lines pouring a selection of house beers including Veltins, Virtuous and Pomona Island, rotating specials from visiting breweries and local faves, alongside a huge wine list for the winos among us.
Available to book in advance, guests can reserve their spot for the Sunday Pizza Social online now, and is available at Nell’s Kampus, The Beagle Chorlton and Common NQ.
