A Brand New Taproom And Street Foodie Spot Has Opened In The City Centre

Say hello to your brand new haunt.

Joining Manchester’s already vibrant hospitality scene this Spring (after what feels like decades in lockdown), Society Manchester is set to combine the vibe of a lively taproom with tasty street food – and we’re already positive it’ll be our weekly haunt.

The £1 million project, from the founders of Leeds’ Assembly Underground, will take over a long-vacant site by the Bridgewater Hall with a capacity for 350 people to drink and dine at the brand new space.

The casual venue will not only see a number of cool new vendors arrive in the city centre, but will also provide a strong line-up of regular entertainment – with DJs, live music events and more expected once the restrictions allow.

The guys behind much-loved Ancoats restaurant Elnecot will also be providing a little familiarity to the place, with their new pizza venture Dokes Pizzeria. There, they’ll be serving up fresh Neapolitan pizza – rivalling the rest of Manchester’s thriving pizza competition.

Other food vendors confirmed to join Society Manchester include popular Yorkshire burger joint Slap and Pickles, Manzoku Street Food, and Hebden Bridge’s Vocation brewery who’ll be providing the beers. Yet to be confirmed is a fifth food vendor, as well as a cool cocktail bar.

Guests can expect a cool, industrial vibe to the space – as shown in the mock-up images – as well as an outdoor patio, lounge area and mezzanine. Society Manchester will be open daily, both throughout the day until late at night.

Stay tuned for further details on Society’s opening date.
