June 29, 2016

If ‘Cocktails and Carbs’ are your thing, you’re in luck! One of Chorlton’s favourite restaurant and bar haunts, The Laundrette, is due to spin into a brand new Manchester city centre location from as early as September.

The owners of the popular South Manchester hangout are planning to open The Laundrette in a retail unit adjacent to the Vita Student building on First Street. The site will also incorporate an outdoor terrace area with heaters and blankets for guests to keep warm under the Manchester skies.The Laundrette 2In addition to the restaurant, the Laundrette team will also be installing an ‘express station’ within the Vita Student building; which will provide complimentary breakfasts to students from 7am Monday to Friday. The express station will be branded as the Laundrette Coffee Co, which plans to offer an array of freshly prepared produce; including delicious pastries baked on site, fresh fruit & juices, yoghurts and freshly ground coffee.

The Laundrette restaurant has applied for a 10am-12am license and will offer customers its quirky and well-loved selection of home cooked dishes including truffle mac & cheese, freshly baked pizzas and antipasti sharing platters. The food will be served alongside The Laundrette’s extensive cocktail menu; with attention-grabbing concoctions such as the Squeaky Clean, Raspberri Flossi and Marshmallow Colada cocktails amongst the favourites that will be on offer.

Speaking about The Laundrette’s latest venture, Director Patrick Hall, said: “We are really excited to move the Laundrette into Manchester centre. First Street is a brilliant addition to Manchester’s food and drink scene and we’re delighted to have a south facing corner location perfect for enjoying our cocktails and carbs in a beautiful restaurant space or on our all-year terrace.”

Subject to planning, the Laundrette will spin into action in time for an autumn launch. To find out more,  visit The Laundrette’s website,  or follow them on twitter at @the_laundrette.
