In just a matter of weeks Manchester will welcome a hotly anticipated bar and restaurant that is promising to mark the beginning of a new era for the city’s famous King Street.
Quill, a luxurious and contemporary bar and eatery from Manchester-baased restaurant and bar group On The Wall, will open its doors on Friday October 30 when its open kitchen is officially fired up for the first time.
The exclusive spot will be located in the heart of the King Street thoroughfare, once described as the ‘Bond Street of the north’.
More than £1m has been invested into Quill, which will offer true exclusivity to its guests, with private dining areas, intimate seating spots and cocktail stations.
Management haven’t yet named the head chef, but said they would have Michelin star experience.
Quill will be split over two floors of the four storey building with the bar area based on the ground floor and the restaurant located on the first floor. The restaurant will seat up to 60, including a 21-cover private dining area.
There will be private areas in the bar for enjoying Quill’s bespoke cocktails and more than 200 people can be accommodated in the whole venue.
The food, both from the A La Carte and 8-course Tasting Menu, will follow a modern British theme with European influences. The restaurant is promising refined dining without the formality of formal dining.
Behind the venture is Chris Longmate, CEO of On The Wall Group, who said he was keen to bring something very luxurious and exclusive to King Street as it becomes the place to be in Manchester.
“King Street really is the new location when it comes to high end venues and Quill will be an integral and central part to this,” he commented.
“The restaurant and bar have been designed in intricate detail by the award-winning designers at Collective Design, who are specialists in this area. When we set out we wanted a refined dining experience for our customers and Collective Design have created a truly beautiful place to enjoy our food.”
