Behemoth craft brewer BrewDog is set to open its third bar and restaurant on Fountain Street in Manchester City Centre next year, alongside its first Northern hotel. The brewery’s mini-hotel – affectionately named DogHouse – will feature a host of beer-themed extras, including their signature Punk IPA on tap in every room, beer fridges in the shower, a bar and terrace, and a roof-top drinking space.
Taking up residence in Bruntwood Works’ Bloc building (formerly Lowry House) opposite Primark, the 3,512 square foot bar and restaurant will be part of a £50m pioneer programme to reshape buildings around the city. While BrewDog’s bar and restaurant is set to open in January 2021, customers will have to wait until summer before they can book into its short-stay hotel, which will be located above the dining and drinking space.
The move follows the launch of the company’s two primary hospitality outlets DogHouse and Kennels. Their first venue debuted in Aberdeen in 2019, home of the Scottish brewing brand, with a second mini-hotel opening up above a BrewDog bar in Columbus, Ohio shortly after. The team have also expressed interest in opening up a London branch, however details on this are yet to be confirmed.
Booze-aside, a selection of fun additions can also be found in each room, including Brompton bikes, vinyl players and guitars. The chain’s hotels are cosy and dog friendly – so you can bring your four-legged friend along for the ride too.
