As Grafene celebrates its first birthday, the award-winning King Street restaurant is inviting 365 lucky Mancunians to raise a toast to each and every day of what’s been a truly spectacular year.
Since the grand opening with Nobel Prize Winner and inventor of graphene, Professor Andre Geim, last summer, Grafene has attracted national press attention, received several award nominations, and moved up 10 places in the Best Restaurants of Manchester listings.
Coinciding with the launch of the new summer menu, the birthday celebrations look set to create a stir amongst Manchester food and drink enthusiasts this July, as Grafene round off a successful first year in style.
Grafene has actively contributed to the vibrant King Street community, throwing its first outdoor lawn party on the Sipsmith gin bar terrace during the King Street Festival. Gin features heavily throughout the Grafene cocktail menu, as it will in the upcoming birthday celebrations.
Grafene will be welcoming 365 thirsty Mancunians through its doors on Thursday 20th July from 5pm, as they give away a year’s worth of Sipsmith Gin Punch over the course of Thursday evening. Partygoers will also be given the opportunity to sample a selection of canapés from the summer menu, with a DJ spinning long into the night.
And the festivities won’t end there. To continue the party, Grafene will be treating diners to a free glass of prosecco with every main course bought on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd July, rounding off the birthday weekender in sparkling fashion with lawn games, Sipsmiths Gin bar, Poretti Tuk Tuk and Grafene’s very own horsebox bar!
