Gaucho creates opulent new bar at its Manchester restaurant

Gaucho Bar Manchester

Gaucho Restaurants has unveiled an opulent new bar for its restaurant in Manchester, specialising in wines from Argentina and Argentine-inspired cocktails.

Launched last week, The Bar at Gaucho has a spectacular white marble floor, plush black leather booths and a snug area as well as under-lit, black cracked glass wall features and bar top.

Large new Crittal bi-folding windows will open up when the weather is fine while, at night, the atmosphere will benefit from striking new lighting, a new sound system and a new DJ booth.

Gaucho’s creative director, Patsy Godik, said: “We are so excited to open The Bar at Gaucho. We have completely re-worked the space and made it much bigger and super glitzy.

“We have worked with carefully selected designers around the country to create an intriguing space that plays with different lights, reflections and textures. Most importantly, it really sparkles.

“There is also a new glass-walled wine room that creates a striking divide between the bar and our restaurant area.”

Gaucho opened in St Mary’s Street in central Manchester in 2001 in a converted Methodist church that was previously home to Bill Wyman’s restaurant Sticky Fingers.

Gaucho Restaurants has had success with other bars at its restaurants such as Galante next to Gaucho in South Kensington, London, which features cocktails based on Argentine classics and ingredients from Argentina.

In May, the company is unveiling a new roof terrace at its restaurant in Piccadilly, London.
