Browns Manchester reveals swanky new look at historic site

Georgina Pellant Georgina Pellant - 13th April 2022

Manchester restaurant Browns on King Street has revealed a brand new look following a major refurbishment.

The brasserie and bar is housed in one of Manchester’s most beautiful buildings, an awe-inspiring Edwardian former banking hall with imposing high ceilings, original marble, wood panelling and exquisite art nouveau detail.

Still, it hasn’t had a makeover in quite some time, so bosses decided to upgrade its interiors to match the restaurant and bar’s stunning settings.

Its new refurbed interiors now match the venue’s glamorous settings perfectly, taking inspiration from the 1920s with art deco styling, luxurious furnishings, and opulent finishes.

To add an extra magical touch, the venue has also revealed it will now be hosting weekly live piano performances in its restaurant every Friday and Saturday evening and Sunday lunchtime.


As for the menu itself, Brown’s brasserie continues to offer a seasonal British menu, extensive cocktail list and fine selection of wine and champagne.
