The Ivy in Spinningfields has reopened following a fire on the restaurant’s roof terrace on Friday night (January 4).
In a statement posted on The Ivy website, restaurant bosses said they were able to reopen the ground floor brasserie, first-floor private dining space and second floor Ivy Asian today (January 5) after firefighters said the building was safe to occupy following the huge fire.
Fire crews from across Greater Manchester attended the blaze, but Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue announced the fire had been extinguished shortly before 6.30pm.
The fire was discovered shortly after 5pm on Friday night. Staff and dinners were evacuated but huge flames could be seen pouring out of the roof terrace.
