202 Kitchen – Manchester’s most notoriously Instagrammable bar and restaurant – has announced plans to open a permanent site. Having successfully debuted its first restaurant in Birmingham last year, the Instagram-inspired venue launched a pop-up unit on Bridge Street in Deansgate during lockdown between August and November 2020.

Now, the venue will relocate to the heart of Spinningfields, taking over the former Gourmet Burger Kitchen and Zizzi units to create a new 7000sqft space that will overlook the River Irwell and house 200 covers, giving guests the option to enjoy outdoor waterside cocktails or even venture indoors to snap a picture of their lavish pink surroundings – when restrictions allow.

202 Kitchen’s new Manchester site will become the brand’s flagship venue when it opens at the end of June, creating over 100 hospitality jobs and providing delicious junk food favourites and colourful cocktails, perfect for a post-lockdown summer. Their enclosed outdoor area is designed to suit all weather occasions and set against an Instagram-inspired backdrop that’ll fill your social media pals with FOMO. Meanwhile, their menu will include indulgent street food cuisine with a 202 twist, including mac ‘n’ cheese, waffles, fried chicken, burgers and even some delightful seafood.
