Having already completed an extensive contemporary refurbishment project on the first floor of the venue, Commercial Kitchen and Bar will now be executing a six-month project on the ground floor, which will be completed by November 2019.

It will see the 30,000 square foot area transformed into a mixed-use, 750-cover space, comprising a retail store, bakery, cocktail bar, shisha terrace and showpiece a la carte restaurant, making it the largest dining space in Manchester.

With a ‘classic, relaxed luxury’ vision, the space will feature premium materials, such as natural limestone floor tiles, marble and oak table-tops and surfaces, as well as bespoke lighting fixtures and furniture.

“The goal is to bring plenty of natural light to the Oldham Road elevation and create a premium aesthetic, whilst maintaining a comfortable atmosphere that is conducive to casual dining,” explains Founder of Commercial Kitchen and Bar, Raju W Haider.

“We have drawn inspiration from ornamental, luxurious and expansive spaces, such as Mayfair’s Cecconi’s and Las Vegas’ Bellagio and Wynn hotels. The space will be entirely open-plan, with the same design and finishes running throughout the entire scheme.”

Commercial Kitchen and Bar have an extensive roster of national and international clients, including Wreckfishin Liverpool, StemRestaurant in Mayfair and Residential in Hong Kong. Upcoming 2019 projects include Elite Bistros’ inaugural Manchester site, KALA,and a new restaurant in Liverpool, founded by The Marram Grass owners, Ellis and Liam Barrie.
