SPACE IS A NOT-FOR-PROFIT FACILITY AVAILABLE FOR HOSPITALITY BRANDS TO BOOK; OCCUPANTS SIMPLY PAY THE ENERGY BILL AND EVEN RECEIVE A FREE KEG OF ESTRELLA DAMM BEER TO HELP ESTABISH THEIR POP-UP

Foodies behold. A new pop-up dining space is coming to the Great Northern this summer with weekly takeovers from different local restaurants.

The pop-up restaurant on the square will provide a Covid-secure space for local businesses that are restricted with limited outdoor dining space. The weekly five day takeover will allow these restaurants to serve up their delicious cuisine right in the heart of Manchester.

With a jam-packed schedule already, expect to see tapas from Evuna, Italian delights from Salvis, plus South Manny Flavaz courtesy of Impossible, throughout August.

The new dining experience will be open 12pm - 8:30pm, Wednesday – Sunday, with Evuna kicking off the opening week from Wednesday 5th August. No need to book, simply pop down and enjoy some tasty tapas outdoors with your household.

All diners will experience table service to reduce close contact and ensure social distancing to kept at all times.

And who doesn’t love an ice cold beer in the sun? The pop-up restaurant will also include its very own Estrella Damm, the premium lager of Barcelona, bar for diners that want to accompany their food with a beer, or two.

On the announcement of Great Northern’s restaurant on the square, Centre Director Mark Schofield said: “Housing so many brilliant bars and restaurants here at the Great Northern we really want to do what we can to help the hospitality business get back on its feet. A lot restaurants don’t have the luxury of outdoor seating, so we’ve created an outdoor dining space that can hold 50 diners in the heart of the Manchester.”

Evuna will be the first restaurant taking over the square from Wednesday 5th August from 12pm.

The Great Northern is running this pop-up space as a non-profit venture to help support Manchester’s hospitality industry, which has been amongst the most badly impacted sectors during the Covid-19 crisis. Brands and charities can apply to use the space via the Great Northern’s website; there’s no fee to pay to utilise the kitchen – brands simply pay the electricity bill for the facilities – and the site is even offering the first keg of beer free-of-charge to give a head start for those setting up shop onsite
