There’s set to be a new boutique hotel in the city centre, right in the heart of the Gay Village on Chorlton Street – LEVEN. Here’s a quote from their website…
“LEVEN is a hotel where you can be yourself. Live your best life, in spaces designed to inspire you to embrace every second.”
Penned in for an October opening, the 42 room hotel is a joint venture between Mancunian brothers Joshua and Ben Senior, and Wellbrook Hospitality. They’re set to take over an aparthotel scheme, offering up not just the rooms but also plans for a cocktail bar, restaurant and more.
Leven will be keeping the buildings industrial ascetic, retaining the red brick walls, timber floors and huge windows – but making the interiors design-led with soft velvet features, leather armchairs and all-natural mattresses and beds.
Rooms range from the standard “Life Size” room to a two-bedroom duplex penthouse suite, known as “Living the Dream.” Guests can enjoy room service and complimentary house-made breakfast smoothies. They also boast a day-to-night lounge where you can try its own-blend coffee, made in collaboration with Origin, as well as cocktails.
“At Leven, you can stay for a coffee, or stay for a cocktail. Stay for a day or a year,” said Timothy Griffin, principal for Wellbrook. “We want to offer a beautiful, flexible space for every need – it’s a hotel with freedom at its heart for both the modern traveller and the local crowd. We are super excited to be bringing this new player to Manchester’s flourishing hotel scene.”
Joshua Senior said: “Manchester is buzzing right now, with many fantastic new businesses opening – it’s a brilliant time to be bringing a new hotel and a new hangout to the city.”
Prices start from £89 a night, and you can find out more – follow them on Instagram…
