The Ivy Is Reopening Its Stunning Venue With A New ‘Summer of Love’ Themed Menu

Manchester’s most beautiful venue is back.

After closing their doors for what would be the last time in 2020 back in November, The Ivy Spinningfields is set to reopen – and they’re celebrating their return with a brand new theme.

Encouraging us to ‘get together, feel the love, taste the freedom’, guests will be able to enjoy a 1960’s-style ‘Summer of Love’ theme, with a colourful new cocktail and food menu to accompany. The theme so cleverly nods to what’s sure to be a wonderful summer following the restrictions we’ve all endured over the past year, with plenty of space across the venue’s three floors for us to catch up with friends over the summer.

Summer vibes will be experienced all-round, with showstopping cocktails providing us with new refreshing tipples to try. Cocktails include This Bird Has Flown (£10.75), created with Haku Japanese Vodka and shaken with mint, lemon and sugar and topped with chilled Prosecco, Lazin’ On A Sunny Afternoon (£9.95) mixed with Roku Gin, Lillet Rose, pink grapefruit juice, Fever-Tree Soda Water and Prosecco, and a Woodstock Old Fashioned (£10.95), crafted with Maker’s Mark 46 Bourbon and spiced maple syrup.

On the food menu, new dishes include a vibrant Pea Velouté (£6.75), with lemon and thyme ricotta, crushed peas and black pepper, Côte de Boeuf (£32.95), and a Strawberry Ice Cream Sundae dessert (£8.25), featuring vanilla ice cream with meringue, shortbread and a warm strawberry sauce.

Kate Cooper, General Manager at The Ivy Spinningfields says: “We are very excited to be re-opening on 17 May across all three floors, whilst welcoming back our regular diners alongside members of the community, who we have greatly missed over the last few months.


“Whether you’re looking for lunch and cocktails with friends on our roof garden, or dinner with a loved one at The Ivy Asia, there are plenty of delicious options to help you rediscover your love of dining this summer.”
