A swish new bar and restaurant is set to deign the city centre in the form of Mamucium and, as avid Manchester foodies, quite frankly we can’t wait to check it out.
What’s to Eat?
Guests to be wowed with food served up by double AA Rosette award winning Local chef Andrew Green, who promises ‘classic dishes with a northern influence’.
Not giving too much away in the description, but this leads us to expect a theme of warm comfort food, perhaps bistro style? Watch this space to find out.
Andrew said: “I am really excited to be a part of Mamucium and cannot wait to introduce my new creations to diners in the city. I intend to keep the menu simple, serving classic food with my own unique spin. I’m passionate about using seasonal and where possible, locally sourced ingredients and this will be a theme that runs throughout the menus. You can expect to eat expertly prepared dishes by myself and my hand-picked team, many of which include a nod to the venue’s wonderful Northern heritage.”
Where is it?
Housed in what is already becoming one of the city’s most iconic buildings, ‘Mamucium’ will be a super-stylish new venue located in the newly developed City Buildings (which will also house Hotel Indigo® Manchester – Victoria Station), adjacent to Victoria train station.
What’s the theme?
Featuring a vibrant new bar, stylish 120-seater restaurant and a sumptuous yet relaxed 70 seater café, Mamucium will offer the finest food and drinks in a chic and comfortable environment. Judging by the pictures the aesthetic will be modern and minimal, with an air of sophistication in the finishing furnishings.
Designed by architects and designers from 3DReid, Mamucium’s planned interior reveals a luxurious setting with modern Art Deco influences. A glamorous, curved mahogany and glass bar area will be the centrepiece of the venue and the open yet intimate restaurant area will feature comfortable banquet and table seating all with views of the open kitchen area.BH Group is the developer responsible for Mamucium and the building it is situated in.
James Houlston, Managing Director of BH Groupsaid, “We wanted to create a destination like no other in the city. Mamucium, is the name given to the Roman fort that was the birthplace of Manchester which we felt represented our vision for the venue perfectly. Being at the gateway to the NOMA regeneration site and the entrance to the newly refurbished Victoria Station, we wanted to create a modern venue that represents Manchester reborn. Somewhere where the best local food and produce can be enjoyed, day or night in surroundings that reflect both the heritage and progression of the city.”
