Set to open in late September, Store Street Exchange and Store Street Craft Bar will be situated on the ground floor of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at Piccadilly, and will provide a day and night den of fine food and drink.
Piccadilly Station, opposite the restaurant and bar, was originally named Store Street when it opened in 1842, before it become London Road Station, and finally Manchester Piccadilly. Now the story of Store Street is to be reborn, as Store Street Exchange and Store Street Craft Bar will celebrate and showcase the heritage of its location, the city’s travel connection links, and the fabulous personality of its city.
Store Street Exchange will be a ‘breakfast through to dinner’ restaurant with a focus on local suppliers and uncomplicated food and drink. The menu will centre around the rotisserie and grill, from which the best regionally sourced chicken and steaks will be served. Guests will be able to order a ‘whole bird’ with all the trimmings, steak cooked their favourite way, simple salads, fresh breads, quick bites and fine puddings too.
There’ll be a variety of different seating areas and places to hang out, all designed to inspire the exchange of ideas that Manchester is famed for across the globe. This will include semi-private dining options and mini-meeting spaces. The restaurant will have its own entrance on Auburn Street and an outdoor terrace.
Store Street Craft Bar will be a standalone drinking den with a focus on craft beers and cocktails. There’ll be a dazzling array of brews including plenty from Manchester’s own fabulous breweries and microbreweries.
The bar will have a brand-new entrance from London Road and its own outdoor seating area, providing the perfect place to hang out, catch up over drinks, people watch or dash in for a quality pre-travel beer.
Robert Ford, General Manager at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Manchester, commented “We can’t wait to open our doors to Manchester! Our concept is about bringing something special but uncomplicated to the city – fabulous food and a cracking collection of drinks in a relaxed space… the transformation is now underway and we’ll be back soon with updates!”
