Popping up in Spinningfields every single winter without fail, the tipi at The Oast House has become an institution in itself… An annual highlight, one might say. Marking the beginning of the festive period, the beloved pop-up is a warming retreat from the Manchester rain – and this year, it’s back bigger and better.
Complete with two roaring fires, twinkling fairy lights and faux fur throws, a mouth-watering street food menu and seasonal cocktails, the winter tipi is set to land in Spinningfields next month. The Oast House’s Teepee will be celebrating its 11th year and we have a feeling it’s going to be a popular hideaway for Mancs during the colder months.
Reopening on October 11, the tipi at The Oast House will boast three tents joined together with a huge open hub, allowing guests to see into the main bar and soak up the party atmosphere. The Oast House’s snug retreat will also feature firepits and live music alongside winter cocktails, hot chocolate, mulled wine and tempting street food, just in time for the chilly weather.
Inside the new lodge guests can expect to dine on some seriously good grub from the venue’s street food style menu including katsu chicken fries, northern poutine with bone marrow gravy and Shorrock’s Lancashire cheese, chicken or plant-based gyros, stacked burgers, hot wings and hanging kebabs. A selection of show-stopping seasonal cocktails and festive tipples will also be on offer to wash it all down with.
A huge launch party for The TeePee will take place on October 20 to mark the opening of the space, with live musicians and DJs playing throughout the evening. It’s free to attend on a walk-in basis so we recommend getting there early for after-work celebrations to avoid queues.
The Oast House tipi will be open every day from 12noon until late throughout the winter and will continue hosting a roster of live musicians covering a range of genres from pop to rock to funk and soul. The heated venue is open for walk-ins, but you can also book a limited number of tables each day via The Oast House’s website and areas can be booked out for Christmas parties and gatherings.
