Ramona and The Firehouse has launched a brand new bottomless brunch offer, giving guests endless frozen margaritas and unlimited slices of Detroit pizza on Sundays.
Available between 12-5pm within a 90-minute window, it’s one of the very few bottomless brunch deals in the city that give you the option of enjoying endless food AND drink – not to mention great beats and all-around settings.
Bottomless Sunday drinks choices include Ramona’s famous frozen margaritas and its watermelon, gin and basil, or Aperol spritz, alongside limitless prosecco, mimosa and pints of Ramona pilsner – costing you just £15 to drink as much of the (frankly excellent) list as you can muster within an hour and a half.
And to soak up all that booze? Endless slices of their focaccia-like Detroit pizza, characterised by its rectangular shape and caramelised cheese crust – known here as the ‘cheese crown’.
Unlimited pizza slices are available across the board – with choices like the Cali Pepps (Detroit sauce, pepperoni, burrata, pecorino, hot honey and cheese, £7.50), listed alongside classic slices like margherita, mushroom, pepperoni and the (sometimes) controversial ham and pineapple.
The team has also created a special brunch slice with pancetta, fennel sausage, roast mushroom, pecorino, poached egg and hollandaise for the occassion. Known as ‘The Detroiter’, it’s only available on the weekends during brunch hours, Saturday and Sunday.
If you don’t feel like gorging on pizza and just want one dish, you can also opt for the booze-only bottomless deal. Priced at £27, this will get you a slice of your choice and 90 minutes of endless drinks from a set list.
Usually, this £27 bottomless deal runs throughout the week from 12-3pm, but with Ramona currently not opening in the day throughout January (and possibly some of February) it will be limited to Saturdays only.
The new ‘endless pizza’ deal, however, is available between 12-5pm on Sundays only. This will cost you £15 for limitless pizzas from the slice bar or, if you want endless pizza and booze, it’ll set you back £35 in total.
After navigating the pandemic, taking home the Best Newcomer Award at the Manchester Food and Drink Festival and bringing two of the hottest new venues to the city, the team behind Ramona and The Firehouse are heading into 2022 with their most trailblazing chapter yet.
Alongside great scran and drinks, the team has also just announced plans to launch a new live entertainment programme to champion and support independent musicians and artists in Manchester.
As part of this new schedule, it will bring will be bringing free live performances and DJ broadcasts to Manchester from Wednesday – Sunday, meaning you can catch some serious vibes whilst chowing down on those gorgeously-fluffy slices of theirs.
Manchester Airport announces direct flights to Las Vegas from 2024
Manchester Airport has announced that passengers will once again be able to catch a direct flight to Las Vegas from next year.
The bright lights of the fabulous Las Vegas are calling.
When it comes to non-stop flights, those jetting off on holiday from Manchester Airport currently have over 169 exciting destinations in 50 countries to choose from – but now, you can add the party capital of the US to that list, as Virgin Atlantic has confirmed that its latest direct route from the Northern hub is Las Vegas.
The Nevada hotspot has always been a popular travel destination, not only because of its legendary nightlife scene, but also thanks to the fact it provides a gateway to the wide range of attractions in America’s West.
The stunning scenery of the Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park, the Pacific Highway, and the major cities of San Francisco, San Diego, and Los Angeles, are all within reaching distance from the desert city – which is presumably why Virgin Atlantic has chosen it as its next direct route from Manchester.
Starting from 2 June 2024, three flights a week will depart from Manchester Airport Las Vegas.
Flights to Las Vegas will operate on Virgin Atlantic’s newest Airbus A350-1000 aircraft, and will be added to the US routes already available through the airline from Manchester Airport to Orlando, New York, and Atlanta
The new Las Vegas route makes Manchester the only airport in the UK outside London to fly directly to America’s West Coast.
“It’s hugely exciting to see the return of Virgin Atlantic’s direct service to Las Vegas, which has always been one of our most popular long-haul routes,” Manchester Airport’s Managing Director, Chris Woodroofe, said of the new flight destination.
“As the UK’s global gateway in the North, it’s great to work with airline partners like Virgin Atlantic to connect the region directly to as many destinations around the globe as possible.
“I am sure this service will be really popular with passengers and we look forward to continuing our work with Virgin Atlantic to further grow its route network from its Northern home in Manchester in the years to come.”
This time, the industrial space will be transformed into Miami Beach, using 30 tonnes of sand and signature palm tree cocktails to create the UK’s largest pop-up beach.
Ian Brown may have famously said that ‘Manchester has everything but a beach’, but all that’s about to change from 5 July.
The summer-long series will include cinematic parties and screenings of major summer blockbusters, plus sing-alongs and loads more, all with sand between your toes and ultra-comfy seats.
To fit with the theme, the unforgettable cinematic experience will include 1980s-era classics like Dirty Dancing, Grease, and Back to the Future, plus other hits like Top Gun: Maverick and Pulp Fiction.
Then some of the summer’s most hotly-anticipated releases, including Barbie, The Little Mermaid remake, and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will all be on the bill.
Every Friday night, there will be recurring Dirty Dancing Beach Parties where guests can dance along to the iconic soundtrack, with special surprises designed to fully immerse everyone into the world of the 1987 film.
Super Sing-alongs will actively encourage audience participation, singing your heart out inhibition-free to feel-good film soundtracks, featuring Grease, Mamma Mia and The Greatest Showman.
Backyard Cinema’s Miami Beach will whisk ticket-holders away to the sunshine state, where you’re greeted by staff in the art deco Miami Beach Hotel and palm tree cocktails at the Flamingo Beach Bar.
It’s all taking place at Broadwick Live’s landmark Depot Mayfield, the former railway dating back to 1910, with original railway tracks, platforms, ticket office, waiting room and cast iron roof structure transformed into a spectacular summer cinema experience.
Backyard Cinema, which first began in founder Dominic Davies’ own backyard, has already enjoyed huge success and garnered a fan following in London as well as in Manchester last winter.
Dominic, founder and creative director said: “After the huge success of our Winter season we are super excited to bring our smash-hit Miami Beach to the roof of Depot Mayfield. We are going to take people back to a retro 80s Miami full of glitz and glamour and create the closest thing to a Summer Holiday in Mayfield.”
Backyard Cinema Miami Beach will open at Depot Mayfield, M1 2PY, on 5 July. Tickets are available on Fever with prices starting from £9.50.
