Bee Involved With Manchester’s Most Ambitious Art Project

What could be more Manchester than creating a city-wide art project based around the Bee emblem? Symbolising the resilient spirit of the city’s people, the City Council and Wild in Art have created a public art trail of over 80 individually designed giant Bee sculptures and, naturally, Harvey Nichols had to get involved.

The Bee trail is created for and by Manchester. Regional artists have designed the sculptures and local communities have sponsored them – including Harvey Nichols. They decided to sponsor ‘Bee a Rainbow’ created by Rachel A Blackwell, who describes her Bee as “a symbol of hope perched upon a sky of dreams.”

You can download the Bee in the City app here, which has the full trail map for you to discover and unlock the sponsor rewards. Speaking of rewards, if you unlock Bee a Rainbow on the trail, you can enjoy a complimentary hot drink or children’s cocktail at the Second Floor Bar and Brasserie. [more info]

St-Germain Liqueur Takeover

Fancy a French-inspired tipple? Thought so...

To celebrate the arrival of summer (and to make it even better than it already is), St-Germain liqueur will be taking over Harvey Nichols.

If you’re not yet familiar with St-Germain, it’s a French liqueur made from Elderflower. Lovingly collected in a surprisingly short window of just a few weeks in spring, the Elderflower blossoms are harvested into a delicious liqueur that, trust us when we say, will ruin all other drinks for you. Looking for a new summer drink? Consider it found.

With that in mind, St-Germain has set up a number of exciting and suitably-summery events throughout the store. [more info]

Bring & Mix

Bring & Mix

You have been sent a code-word and are instructed to knock at a door.  After gaining entry you'll hear the sound of music from the bygone years of the 20s and 30s echo, luring you inside to Bring & Mix, a subterranean bar with a prohibition theme, specialising in one thing; cocktails.

Bring and Mix asks two things of you; to reserve your seat online and to bring a bottle or more of alcohol with you.  Bring & Mix is a BYO cocktail experience, where the guests supply the alcohol, and Bring & Mix's talented mixologists will create bespoke cocktails using fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, bitters, tinctures and sodas.  Repeat this for two hours, and you're sure to have a great time.

With full table service, you won't have to worry about queuing at the bar, meaning you can spend more time with your mates, and drinks, with no interruptions.

Bring & Mix is launching at 514 Wilbraham Road in Chorlton, on Friday 27th July, and will be open every Friday and Saturday from 18:15 until 23:15.

Tattu Manchester

National Dim Sum Week comes to Manchester

Tattu is joining a host of restaurants across the country for the inaugural seven-day celebration of National Dim Sum Week (30th June – 6th July 2018).

Originating with the Cantonese in Guangzhou, the term ‘dim sum’ refers to a unique culinary art form of bite-sized sweet or savoury dishes prepared in a number of ways, most commonly steaming, baking or frying. 

The literal translation of dim sum is ‘touch your heart’ and it is a dining tradition made for sharing. From the early morning Yum Cha meetings of the historic Silk Road travellers, to the modern-day restaurants that are frequented in cities around the world by work colleagues or for family get togethers.

To mark the first national celebration, Tattu has created a unique dim sum tasting platter designed for two to share, the platter features a selection of Tattu's signature dim sum. [more info]

July Opening For ‘The Jane Eyre’

A modern take on the family run local bar is ready to welcome you to ancoats this July, brothers Joe and Jonny Eyre have teamed up to bring The Jane Eyre to One Cutting Room Square early July. The brothers have extensive experience within the Manchester and London hospitality scene, namely The Bubble Room, Gorilla and Polpo at Spuntino, pulling together their expertise, creating a concept that will sit proudly in the neighbourhood surroundings of Ancoats. 

You’d be forgiven to think that this bar is inspired by a Charlotte Bronte novel, but you’d be wrong, The Jane Eyre is inspired and named after Jonny and Joe’s Mother. “We want to create a warm and friendly environment as that’s what she always gave us growing up.”

Neville Towers

The long debated, anticipated, criticised, and lauded £200m St Michael’s development from G&G Hospitality has been given the official green light following such reports a few weeks back.  The soon to be tower will stand on the plot which is currently occupied by the old city centre Police station, and will play host to offices, residential spaces and an array of hospitality led ventures.  Definitely one to watch.


Pot Kettle Black Mk2

Barton Arcade's award winning coffee shop and brunch spot Pot Kettle Black is branching out.  Former Rugby League stars Jon Wilkin and Mark Flanagan are behind the company, which will expand its city centre presence to the ground floor of No1 Spinningfields.  Who doesn’t love a good independent coffee shop?  We suspect that Spinningfields certainly will.

From this, we will choose between 80 and 90 of the most impressive candidates and send them on a seven-week training programme that will be divided between London and Manchester.” [more info]

Gin School

Thomas Dakin, the Manchester based gin, is launching a Gin distillery and school.  The venture will be based in Croxley House on Lloyd Street, and looks set to be housed over 4 floors.  We look forward to hearing more about this unique marking offering in the coming weeks.


Neighbourhood

Spinningfields celeb haunt Neighbourhood has reopened following their temporary closure on the back of an attack at the venue.  A set of conditions, many of which will make life hard for such a venue, have been placed on the reissue of their licence though.  These include them being unable to serve drinks in glassware between certain hours, along with a weapon scanner on entry, and the compulsory presentation of ID between certain hours.

The Anthologist

Drake and Morgan are growing their Manchester portfolio via the launch of their Anthologist brand, in the ground floor of the One St Peter's Square building, facing Central Library.  We can expect to see cocktails, wine, and an eclectic food offering, all wrapped up in a nice décor package.  The St Peter's Square area is certainly blossoming at the moment..


Something's Brewing On Oxford Rd

Aberdeen based mass/craft ale pioneers Brewdog are set to increase their presence in the city via the opening of the UK's second BrewPub, hot on the heels of the equivalent London Bridge launch.  As the name suggests, there will be onsite brewing as well as the property doubling up as a pub.  The BrewDog BrewPub is set to launch in September on University Green on Oxford Rd.

The Courteeners St Jude

Toast A Decade Of St Jude

Manchester indie-rockers Courteeners and Camden Town Brewery, have teamed up to create a limited-edition ‘St. Jude Pils’ to toast the 10-year anniversary of the group’s debut studio album, St Jude.

The limited-edition beer was originally brewed exclusively for Courteeners’ rider for their sold-out shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall and Manchester Arena. However, having tasted the beer, the band wanted everyone to have the chance to raise a bottle of St Jude Pils.

So, from Wednesday 4th April the beer will be available at a handful of Courteeners’ favourite bars across Manchester including the Black Dog Ballroom NQ, Crazy Pedro’s & Cane and Grain.
