A forgotten freight depot has been repurposed for pleasure with a visionary food market from the coolest local pop-ups, indies and creatives. You’ll find a unique selection of bars and inventive cultural spaces, sunny outdoor areas and intimate indoor seating.
A reminder of the city’s industrial past has been re-imagined as the drinks and dining destination for right now. Escape to Freight Island is the place to escape, just when we need it most.
From the classic Italian dining of Belzan to Santa Monica-inspired burgers and shakes from Patty Queen, from Baratxuri’s live-fire Basque cooking to Madre’s tacos for the soul, Escape to Freight Island is the venue which collates and curates some of the best food the North West has to offer.
Come for an authentic Vietnamese meal, a vegan feast, brunch or Breton Crêpes or just come for the drinks and the music. You’ll find something to quench every thirst with great coffee, cocktails, craft beer, speciality wines and fruit ciders from our carefully-picked purveyors of liquid refreshment. We’ve invited our favourite brewers and mixologists to be a part of Escape to Freight Island.
