Opening on 17th March 2017, Grand Pacific, by Living Ventures, is a colonial styled bar and restaurant at the top of King Street, in the renowned Grade II listed Manchester Reform Club building. Grand Pacific will lure Manchester with its enticing atmosphere and all day, until late into the night, offer.
The 120 cover restaurant and bar at Grand Pacific offers informal dining at lunchtime through to the evening, blending flavours from exotic places with English classics. At the weekend a “Classical Sunday lunch” is available with roast beef carved at your table and live music from the Grand Pacific Palm Court Group. High tea is an indulgent affair filled with exotic sweet delights from far-away places with specially blended fragrant teas and Champagne cocktails.
The feature twenty five seat Long Bar is inspired by Raffles Hotel in Singapore. The bar will play host to expert mixologists creating bespoke cocktails filled with imported fine spices and intriguing botanicals. By night Grand Pacific will take on a high spirited atmosphere with a late license and DJs playing eclectic tunes whilst the lights go low and the cocktails flow.
The stylish pineapple logo could not be more fitting for the Grand Pacific philosophy. Since pineapples were discovered in the early 15th century they have symbolised prosperity, generosity and hospitality. Grand Pacific aims to recreate the golden age of high society with a comfortable, relaxed charm accompanied by great service.
With deep button upholstery, palm trees, and cut crystal abacus inspired screens, Grand Pacific pays homage to its location in the original financial district of the city. The building was home to one of the first Manchester dining clubs so original features of the property have been incorporated into the tranquil, classic interior created by Interior Designer, Michelle Derbyshire. The 3000 square foot space merges tropical influences of the Pacific Ocean with old world grandeur.
Living Ventures CEO Jeremy Roberts commented; “We are delighted to bring this beautiful room back to life and echo its glorious past as the home of the historic Manchester Reform Club. Its heritage as a place to relax, eat and drink and just enjoy some of the pleasures of life simply oozes from the walls and it is our privilege and pleasure to let it continue to be what it was always meant to be.”
