An American-Style Speakeasy Serving Steins And Hot Dogs Is Coming To Manchester

Say cheers to steins and brines!

Manchester and Liverpool share a number of fantastic independent bars and restaurants – from Manc-born Rudy’s and Almost Famous, to Liverpool’s own Midnight Delivery and Mowgli. And now, joining the fantastic list of growing North West-based independents is Salt Dog Slim’s – an uber-cool American-style bar known for its ‘steins and brines’.

Providing a new casual drinking and dining spot for Mancs to enjoy, the upcoming opening is currently set to open at an undisclosed location near King Street – with owner’s GSG (who also run Bold Street Coffee and Santa Chupitos) planning for an early 2021 opening date.

Speaking of the upcoming opening, Matt Farrell, co-founder of GSG Hospitality, said: “Despite the current lockdown and recent Tier 3 restrictions in both Liverpool and Manchester, we’re determined to stay positive. We’ve been considering expansion into other northern cities for a while now and we’ve finally found a venue that is perfect for us and the concept it’ll be home to.


“Salt Dog Slims is a much-loved bar for its music, drinks and unique atmosphere and we’re looking forward to bringing it to Manchester.”

The new bar will serve steins, cocktails, and hot dogs are part of its offering – but in addition to the laid-back bar, which boasts stripped-back decor, Salt Dog Slim’s will also be home to a top-secret speakeasy, which can only be entered by appointment.
