Launching launch in late March providing lockdown restriction permit by the founders of Assembly Underground in Leeds, the new all-day 8,000sq ft venue is described as being a hub for street food, craft beer, wine and cocktails.
It will feature five independently-owned kitchens, a cocktail bar and taproom by Hebden Bridge-based craft brewery Vocation. Confirmed traders for the launch include Slap & Pickle diner serving a menu of burgers, vegan burgers and loaded fries; pan-Asian specialists Manzoku Street Food; Falafel Guys; and Dokes Pizzeria, the sister brand to local restaurant Elnecot.
The space will have room for 350 guests and will be a place to eat and drink throughout the day before turning into a more lively venue at night thanks to a rotating line-up of resident DJs spearheaded by Manchester’s Regal Disco,
“We’re very excited to finally open the doors to this iconic venue and look forward to welcoming guests throughout the day, evenings and weekends at Society,” says Nick Gregory, director and co-founder of Society.
“We’ve got an incredible line up that will showcase local food operators as well as our 2021 events programme that will be dedicated to highlighting independent artists from Manchester’s thriving music scene. It’s so important to us to create a destination that showcases the very best of Manchester and Society will be just that.”
