Another week, another bit of exciting Kampus-related news. Announcing yet another new opening coming soon to the bustling new neighbourhood, Mancs can get excited for a swish new LGBTQ+ cocktail den, which is set to provide a stylish new spot for Mancs to drink and catch up with mates.
Set in a Victorian warehouse just off Little David Street, Red Light plans to be the city’s newest ‘laid-back lounge’, providing a little bit of escapism with plenty of cosy corners, industrial decor complimenting the existing features of Minshull Warehouse and queer art.
In addition to fantastic cocktails, guests at Red Light will also be able to enjoy disco beats setting the cosmopolitan vibe, alongside outdoor seating on the stunning Little David Street, where they can soak up the Kampus vibes throughout the summer months.
Deana Ferguson, Red Light founder, said: “The bar we’re creating fits perfectly with the red brick of the stunning Victorian warehouse, opening onto Little David Street. The name is a nod to the fascinating history of the area, with the canals and warehouses once at the heart of the cotton industry, but then becoming a hidden red light district after the businesses wound down.
“Red Light will be a queer and inclusive space, where we’ll be mixing signature cocktails in a historic space that just draws people in from the street. It’ll be dimly-lit and intimate, a place to hang out with mates or simply while away the night in a refined setting.”
Founder Deana is keeping the opening date close to her chest for now, however, you can stay tuned for updates right here.
