The Manchester restaurant with amazing views that’s open throughout the Christmas season

Daisy Jackson Daisy Jackson - 26th November 2021

One of Manchester’s most popular restaurant spaces, in the heart of the city’s shopping district, is staying open right the way through the festive season.

The Brasserie at Harvey Nichols has one of the best views in the city centre, perched above the Christmas Markets.

People will be able to tuck in to three-course party menus throughout December, sipping on champagne or sipping coffees with a view across the historic Corn Exchange building.

The restaurant is tucked up on the second floor of the luxury department store and is always popular with shoppers.

The Brasserie is famed for its afternoon teas, a perfect way to finish a day of Christmas shopping.


One of the city’s best, visitors are treated to a tower of miniature sandwiches and cakes, with unlimited tea and coffee for £25 per person, or upgrade to champagne for £35 per person.

The rest of the food offering ranges from brunch classics like scrambled eggs on sourdough, eggs Benedict, and full English breakfasts, to hearty toasties stuffed with fillings like nduja and pesto, or mature cheddar and caramelised onion chutney.

There are Sunday roasts, where a choice of chicken supreme or Josper-grilled striploin from Cheshire is served with roasted chunky root vegetables, cauliflower cheese, tenderstem broccoli, carrot and swede, duck fat and rosemary roasties, Yorkshire pudding and bottomless gravy.

Vegans can still get in on the roast action at the Brasserie with a vegan Wellington served with plant-based trimmings.

It’s open for lunches and dinners too – expect modern fare from across the globe like rack of lamb with a pistachio herb crust, beef fillet carpaccio, and pan-fried chicken breast with creamy pesto gnocchi and rocket.
