On The Wall Group is preparing to open “exclusive” new bar and restaurant Quill in Manchester city centre after an investment of over £1m.
Covering two floors, the 200-capacity venue will have a bar on the ground floor, specialising in cocktails and offering intimate seating for guests, and a restaurant with up to 60 covers on the first floor, including a private dining area.
With Quill officially due to open to the public on October 30, On The Wall Group describes it as the start of “a new era” for King Street, the shopping district once dubbed the Bond Street of the north.
On The Wall Group, which also operates Chalk Bar & Grill in Didsbury in south Manchester, enlisted leading bar and restaurant interior specialists Collective Design to create what they are calling an “opulent oasis” in the centre of Manchester. The restaurant will feature an open kitchen, with a head chef who is yet to be announced.
Chris Longmate, chief executive of On The Wall Group, 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 said.
“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.
“And on the ground floor you will find something slightly different, with these cocktail stations and unique seating areas to enjoy our drinks offering. I see it as the place to escape to, an opulent oasis in Manchester.
“Now as the opening approaches we are just really excited about the opening now and can’t wait to see guests inside enjoying Quill.”
