Hop up four steps, push open the frosted “Goods Entrance” door, note the stark striplighting then take the tiled staircase to the basement. These are all on your checklist; don’t look back.
Downstairs, you’ll find a hidden gem and one of Manchester’s best-kept secrets: Wood & Company. It’s a cosy, candlelit space complete with classy marble bar, luxe leather banquettes, lots of dark shadows and top-notch staff to serve you craft beers, great wine and fizz, and our famous high-end cocktails.
We change up the drinks menu regularly, so there’s always something new for you to try, but right now we’re recommending our Summer Harvest, which combines Cognac with raspberries, and the Garden of Eden, teaming citrus flavours and elderflower with gin. Bananarama has a whisky and bitters banoffee-inspired hit; Melonade is our favourite kind of anagram, putting melon liqueur with sherry and vodka tonic. We also serve the classics – Old Fashioned, Cosmo, Margarita, Bramble – and we’re open late and ready for you Wednesday to Sunday.
