Manc brewing favourites Cloudwater have teamed up with beloved Ramsbottom tapas spot Levanter for a ten-week residency at Piccadilly’s Kampus neighbourhood.

Each weekend will see the thriving new area host patio parties with laid-back disco vibes, alongside Cloudwater’s freshest pours and the Levanter’s mouthwatering Spanish bites.

Running from Fri 15 Apr-Sun 26 Jun, every weekend will celebrate a different global hotspot—from California beach sounds and upbeat Mexican Cinco de Mayo festivities to Irish folk parties and painfully cool NYC jazz.

‘The Cure’ will be an authentic Spanish brunch, served every Saturday and Sunday from 11am, featuring a rotating menu from Levanter and Cloudwater’s special Bloody Mary cocktails on tap, using a different base spirit and garnish each week to fit the theme.

Cloudwater will be sticking around too, after they recently announced plans for a huge new flagship beer hall at Kampus.
