Coconut rum brand Malibu is launching a pop-up beach club at the Great Northern Warehouse, it has revealed.

Bringing palm trees, colorful deck chairs, beach holiday vibes and ‘Malibu moment’ photo opportunities, the new tropical terrace will officially move into the Great Northern Square next week.

Serving up frozen cocktails, fruity summer spirits and a large Malibu-inspired shot menu, it will open next week in collaboration with Manchester’s retro gaming bar Pong & Puck, taking over its large outside space.

Those heading down should expect live DJs playing breezy summer tunes on the terrace and a buzzing bottomless brunch on Saturdays and Sundays featuring 90 minutes of frozé cocktails, selected house cocktails and more.

With an undercover, heated terrace that will keep guests warm and dry no matter the weather, ‘must try’ cocktails include the Piña Colada (of course!) and Miami Vice amongst many other delicious fruity and fun serves, including a coconut twist on the classics.

Happy hour will take place Sunday to Thursday from 5 to 7pm, and there will also be pizza to enjoy with toppings ranging from mushroom and truffle to the ever-controversial Hawaiian.


Inside at Pong & Puck, meanwhile, revellers will find retro games like shuffleboard, beer pong, prosecco pong and table tennis alongside a host of 80s, 90s and 00s party tunes on the stereo.

Filled with neon signs, graffiti and murals, with decor inspiration from across the globe, beer pong tables are priced at £10 for an hour, with four-pint beer towers sold for £21 – or you can switch to prosecco pong at the same table price, and £30 for the bottle of fizz.
