It’s an all-in-one, one-stop-shop for some of the best days and nights in the city
Day or night, if you’re up for some social shenanigans, the only place you need is Escape to Freight Island.
It’s a complete escape. Unlike any bar or restaurant. Everything you could ever need is all in one place – Depot Mayfield. You’ll find food from some of the most respected operatives in the region all gathered together in one glorious food market. You’ll discover drinks from favourite local brewers and favourites from further afield as well as cocktails from some of Manchester’s best bars, fruit ciders and speciality wines.
But Escape to Freight Island isn’t just about the food and drink, even though that’s more than reason enough to pay a visit. You’ll find immersive entertainment, events, live music, DJs and more. The whole social spectrum is at Escape to Freight Island.
Once a derelict freight depot, Escape to Freight Island has what it takes to become one of Manchester’s cultural and social hubs. It feels like a place apart, completely unique, yet just two minutes from Piccadilly station, it’s a convenient meet-up whether you’re strolling across town or travelling in from the ‘burbs.
With recent expansions, Escape to Freight Island now has a huge indoor space as well as open air eating and seating. With intimate spaces for dates and big areas for mates, Escape to Freight Island is a year-round destination for every sort of get-together and it’s open to kids and canines to, everyone is welcome.
It’s a one-off with its own identity. Where else would you find a live orchestra playing Disney songs alongside vegan doughnuts?
