New bar, club and live venue, No.33 Oldham Street, is a multi-storey affair recently launched by Andy Smith (co founder of Kendal Calling, Bluedot Festival and Off The Record) and Jason McGuire (Manchester Coffee), with a focus on quality sound and music. The ground floor is a casual, open space, perfect for a morning coffee or a late night cocktail. We tried the Sherbie Hancock (£8.50), a tangy yet sweet mix of Espolon, rhubarb liqueur, orange liqueur, agave, lime – it’s a lemon sherbet thrill. The menu is modern comfort food: Eggs Benedict (£9), beef and n’duja meatballs (£6.50) and sweet potato falafel (£6) – all ideal for sharing. Larger plates include herb-crusted lamb cutlets (£12.50) with mash or pan roasted hake (£13) with crispy chicken skin and sautéed potatoes. The first floor includes a custom built sound system – look out for local DJs Andrea Trout and Neil Diablo over the coming weeks. The second floor is the venue’s creative space, designed to have the look of a members’ lounge, minus the fee and will host a continuously changing exhibition of favourite artists, designers and illustrations. Lastly there is a soon to open rooftop terrace. An all around welcome new addition – and dogs are welcome too.
Now open, 33 Oldham Street, Northern Quarter Manchester, Manchester M1 1JG. Tel: 0161 832 1299, www.33oldhamstreet.com
