As AO Arena undergoes its major, transformational redevelopment, the venue has announced today the launch of The Mezz; a brand new suite, premium bar and restaurant. Set to open in early 2024, The Mezz is the new and exclusive, members-only level at Manchester’s iconic venue and promises to “take guests above and beyond the show”.
With two connected experiences, The Mezz’s bar and restaurant, guests can expect the very best modern British cuisine, champagne, fine wines, signature cocktails and post show entertainment. The Mezz restaurant will showcase freshly prepared modern dishes with local, seasonal ingredients, complemented by an expertly-crafted wine list and impressive service.
Master mixologists will man the bar at The Mezz, delivering champagne, mocktails and cocktails accompanied with snacks and sharing platters. After the show, The Mezz bar will stay open with a DJ on the decks to keep the party going.
From The Mezz, guests will have an unrivalled view of the arena bowl and world famous stage, as well as direct access to the best seats in the house. According to AO Arena, The Mezz aims to be “the ultimate space to kick-start and end a night of live entertainment”.
Jen Mitchell, General Manager at AO Arena commented: “With our redevelopment works well underway, we are absolutely delighted to announce the launch of The Mezz. A stunning new suite, premium bar and restaurant for guests, right here in Manchester city centre. And of course, there will be access to watch the shows from some of the best seats in the house. We’re incredibly proud to be elevating AO Arena as we drive ahead to a bright future, so it’s fantastic to be able to reveal this latest addition in the works, as part of our state-of-the-art premium portfolio.”
As part of the major redevelopment works at AO Arena, customers will see upgraded concourse areas with revamped bars and refreshed, new menu offerings, catering for diverse and evolving food and drinks requirements for all guests, opening throughout 2023 and into 2024. Plus, within the main arena bowl, the floor space is being expanded to allow for increased capacity.
AO Arena is home to a range of suites, VIP lounges and bars, offering an impressive entertainment experience such as The Beautiful North, AO Electric Lounge and Heineken Sky Lounge, all of which offer unique packages and unreal views.
