Step out of the bustle and into the mood-lit bar in the basement of the historic Queens Chambers building.

With all the charm of original Victorian features mixed with a relaxed modern vibe, you can already imagine – this is more than your average drinking den.

Mark and Gary brought the Grade II listed space back to life, restoring the old brickwork to its former glory and reviving its stunning original features. They created a bar that’s set the bar – a relaxing, cosy space to enjoy an elegant drink or two with friends.

The team at Arcane opened their doors in April 2016 and have been surprising and delighting even the most seasoned cocktail connoisseurs ever since.

For the owners, who have been friends for nigh on 30 years, this has been a lifelong ambition in the making. “It’s something Mark and I have talked about since I can remember,” said co owner Gary “so for us to be doing this is literally a dream come true! We’ve both worked in and around Manchester City Centre for about 15 years, so we know the area very well and feel that we can offer some extra qualities to Manchester’s bar frequenters. Great products and fantastic service go a long way and in an age where concept bars are rife, what’s wrong with just being a great bar?”

Mark and Gary are joined by bar manager Andrew Gray, recently part of Apotheca and Bakerie teams. “For those who know him, I think they will agree he oozes positivity and brings a fantastic creative influence with his ideas” said Mark, “and the three of us cannot wait to get ARCANE open and be part of Manchester’s vibrant bar scene.”

The bar has built a core team of dedicated bar tenders who first and foremost have a passion for their line of work and delivering a high standard of customer service skills. “Ingenuity and creativity in what you offer, and humility to ignore the status quo and offer any drinks in any way that the customer desires it to be served”.

The wait is over and Arcane have re opened Arcane on the Alley.

They’ve missed the friendly faces of all their lovely customers, so ahead of the bar reopening in May they have secured an outside seating area around the corner from their front door on Ridgefield Street.

The full drinks menu from the bar including the cocktail list will be made available for the outdoor area, they just have to serve in polycarbonate glassware due to being outdoors. Nethertheless, they still go down the same way!

This is a temporary, pop-up style outdoor space so please remember to wrap up warm and dress appropriately for the lovely Mancunian weather!
