Arc Inspirations has opened a new Manahatta site in York following a major £400,000 investment, taking the bar brand’s portfolio up to six.
Located in the heart of the historic city, the venue has been transformed into a “glamorous” and “contemporary” New York-inspired cocktail bar, featuring neon signs and booths.
The cocktail and drinks menu has been curated by Arc Inspirations’ bar development manager Mark Austin and the award-winning team from the American bar at the Savoy Hotel to bring New York-style cocktails and atmosphere to York.
Guests can choose from a selection of Manahatta signature serves, such as the Cuban Postcard and Manahatta Spritz, as well as Espresso and Pornstar Martinis served on draught.
Martin Wolstencroft, chief executive of Arc Inspirations, said: “This has been a tremendously successful year for the company, and we are delighted to bring Manahatta to York ahead of the busy festive trading period.
“York has a fantastic history and is a thriving city, and we’re delighted to provide locals, students and tourists alike a truly unique venue to enjoy fantastic cocktails and food, as well as the opportunity to experience the unmistakable beat of New York.”
