Behemoth craft brewer BrewDog has officially received the go ahead to create their first hotel in England at Bruntwood Works’ new Bloc development on Fountain Street. The brewery’s mini-hotel – affectionately named the DogHouse – will feature a host of beer-themed treats, including a beer for every guest upon arrival, their signature Punk IPA on tap in every room, beer fridges in the shower and a roof-top drinking space. Brewdog’s new Manchester hotel will also feature an on-site restaurant with a focus on tacos, alongside a new bar – marking the chain’s third venue in the city.
Taking up residence in Bruntwood Works’ Bloc building (formerly Lowry House), the 18 bedroom hotel and 3,512 square foot bar and restaurant forms part of a £50m programme to reshape buildings around the city. The move follows the launch of the Brewdog’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 afterwards. 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.
