The Schofield’s success story seemingly goes from strength to strength in Manchester, as the cocktail pioneers prepare to open a brand new concept in the city.

Sterling—the latest creation by Joe and Daniel Schofield, alongside leading wine expert James Brandwood, will take over the lower ground floor previously known as ‘The Vault’ at Manchester’s Stock Exchange Hotel.

The spectacular space—which all things going according to plan should arrive this September—will become home to an exciting new cocktail bar, with an equally as impressive wine programme that reflects the history and glamour of this stunning building.

Joe Schofield said: “We have been planning this new concept for a long time and now it’s nearing completion. Stock Exchange Hotel is a particularly meaningful venue for us as our mother used to work at the Stock Exchange. Our grandmother also learnt to swim in the old pool at the basement in our original Schofield’s Bar location.  As we continue to evolve our operations in Manchester, it’s warming to have a connection to the past, as that very much reflects our approach to our offering.”

Sterling will be housed in the 2,400 sq ft space and will have a capacity of just over 100 covers. It will be open five days a week and will feature both the classic and innovative cocktails that people have come to expect from the Schofield’s team, along with a stellar wine list curated by James.

There will be a bar snack menu developed by Tom Kerridge, the two-Michelin starred chef behind the revered Bull & Bear restaurant located in the former trading floor of The Stock Exchange Hotel.
