The Ivy Asia is looking to become Manchester’s ultimate Chinese New Year destination with a collection of spectacular (and lucky) red Chinese umbrellas unfolded to create a beautiful installation as you enter the lavish space.

The entire floor is illuminated with a show-stopping emerald green, semi-precious stone floor, set against a striking antique gold mirrored bar, and gold-gilt ceiling.

They’ll also be hosting a very special night of late entertainment on Saturday 9th February with a live performance from the incredible House of Pyramid whose dancers take up residency from 9pm onwards.

The live entertainment available for diners on the night is the start of a series of late-night Ivy Asia evenings with more events to be revealed throughout the year.

Throughout the Chinese New Year celebration, a range of brand-new cocktails will be available, each named after the five pigs in the Chinese Zodiac – metal, water, wood, fire and earth.

Chivas, Chinese spiced syrup, Port & mint – served Julep style in a metal cup, garnished with a banana leaf. (£11.95)


Roku, Blue Curacao, Yuzu, syrup, cucumber and micro onion – garnished with dehydrated lime and micro lemon balm. (£10.50)


Sake, Umeshu, Lillet Blanc, lychee syrup, grenadine, plum bitters and banana foam – garnished with toast foam. (£8.50)


Midori, Cacao Blanc, Yuzu, egg white, syrup – garnished with edible soil and Gypsophila. (£8.00)


Roku, Campari, Borolo, espresso and Bob’s Chocolate Bitters – served in a cinnamon smoked glass. (£11.95)

Ivy Asia, exclusive to Manchester, serves Asian-inspired dishes such as Wagyu beef with truffle sauce, Salmon fillet teriyaki with avocado, crispy tofu, lime and ginger dressing.
