Manchester looks like it could be set to gain another high-profile restaurant opening, after a licence application for a brand-new Lucky Cat appeared on the council website.

One of Gordon Ramsay’s eatery brands, Lucky Cat is inspired by Tokyo’s 1930’s kissas and Shanghai’s drinking dens, and focuses on Asian-inspired small plates, Robata grilled dishes, sushi and sashimi.

The application is to take over the stunning Grade II listed bank building on King Street, formerly occupied by Jamie’s Italian restaurant. The license touts the venue as a three-floor, high-quality Asian style bar and restaurant, with entertainment by way of recorded music and a DJ.

Ramsay opened the original Lucky Cat in London’s Mayfair back in 2019. If plans for Lucky Cat Manchester do go ahead, it follows a wave of upcoming high-end openings that include the likes of Sexy Fish, Musu and Chotto Matte.
