The team behind The Dockyard (pictured) in MediaCityUK in Salford Quays are getting ready for summer with a new pop-up tiki bar called The Shack.

The bar is to open in MediaCityUK’s Piazza on May 1, serving tropical drinks and fresh food from a wooden-style shack decorated with tiki heads, driftwood, curios and palm trees.

Open from midday until late (weather permitting), The Shack’s menu will feature “big, fun, fruity” cocktails including Mai Tais, Mojitos and Zombies as well as wine and beer and freshly made salads and sandwiches plus a barbecue on Friday evenings.

Steve Pilling, owner of The Dockyard and The Shack, said: “We had great fun running the winter Lodge last year and therefore wanted to create another cool pop-up bar where people can have some sizzling, summer fun.

“Our vision for The Shack is to offer a great space where people can enjoy a cocktail, or two, and a bite to eat, in a setting that gives a real relaxing holiday vibe.”

Stephen Wild, managing director of MediaCityUK, added: “As we head into summer and the weather warms up, it’s great to be able to offer our visitors, employees and residents a new bar where they can relax with family and friends.

“The Lodge was a great success last winter, and The Dockyard has been a welcome addition to MediaCityUK, so we look forward to seeing what fun The Shack will bring over the summer months.”
