Manchester Social 101 welcomes hot new garden bar… Bloom to Spinningfields next week

Fluid Bars will be managing this unique pop-up venue in the heart of Hardman Square, Manchester.

It is set to be the perfect escape from the concrete jungle after a long day at the office!

Summertime in Bloom is set to be escapism at its best and can be found at Spinningfields, on the edge of the newly redeveloped square that is The Lawns.

Bloom is described as the only bar of its kind in Manchester, what with herbs grown on-site and greenery, it’s not hard to imagine why it’ll be a hit!

A joint venture between Allied London and Fluid Bars, Bloom will be operated by James Wrigley of Fluid. Based in Manchester, Fluid Bars is an independent company which has provided pop-up bars and bar services for events across the city for the past five years.

Bloom will serve themed cocktails and summer drinks to share. Bloom’s cocktail gardeners will be creating drinks infused and garnished with their own ingredients grown on-site (herbs, berries etc.) and the bar will also stock a wide range of ales from local breweries. Sandwiches and soups will be served daily using fresh Manchester produce and ingredients from the venue.

Bloom has a series of events scheduled throughout the summer including BBQ’s, outdoor games, croquet on the lawn, cocktail and beer tutorials.

The bar will be open 12.00-23.00 Sunday to Thursday, and 12.00-00:00 Friday and Saturday.

James Wrigley said; “We were initially approached by Mike to pitch ideas for Spinningfields and saw this as a fantastic opportunity for a small independent Manchester-based company. We put a lot of time and energy into proposing a range of concepts for the area, and our ideas were well received. The team are really excited about Bloom and are looking forward to bringing something different into the city!”

Designed by James Darwent Architecture Ltd, Bloom has been designed to fit seamlessly alongside The Lawns. Cubic in shape and clad in galvanised green living walls, the structure has a timber frame and provides an undercover area that opens up to face The Lawns and the big screen.
