Caribbean pop-up Carnival to take over all-pink Boujee terrace in Manchester

From pink to yellow, pornstars to rum punch, it's all change at the Boujee terrace

A new Caribbean and Latino-inspired pop-up is set to take over the all-pink £1m Boujee restaurant terrace on Bridge Street next month.

Eagle-eyed city dwellers may have already noticed that the eye-popping pink frontage has been repainted in a bright sunshine yellow, giving passers-by a small hint as to what’s to come.

Due to open to the public on April 14, over the coming weeks, the Boujee terrace space will be transformed into Carnival – a beachy drinkers’ paradise, complete with hammocks and cool beach cabanas.

It will serve up a range of sunny cocktails like rum-soaked pornstar martinis, sweet caipirinhas, glasses of punch, and Red Stripe beers from an outdoor bar for a bit of a change of pace.

As for food, think plates of spicy Jerk chicken, loaded nachos, and crisp calamari – all suitable for sharing over a few bevvies whilst sitting out in the sunshine with friends.

Designed to become a new spring and summer hang-out in the heart of the city, those heading down to Carnival can expect to hear an array of reggaeton and afrobeat selections, sure to carry on the party late into the night as the evenings slowly begin to get longer.

Open from mid-April until September, it will be open every weekend from Thursday to Sunday.

Thursdays and Fridays the new pop-up bar and terrace will open from 4pm, whilst on Saturdays and Sundays the festivities will kick off from 12pm.

Inside, the former Free Mason’s hall will remain as a bar and restaurant for Boujee – the all-pink Barbie World-esque concept first launched by Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lystra Adams and her silent partners in Manchester in December 2020.

Manchester fans of the unabashed Instagram trap will still be able to visit Boujee’s all-pink walk-in shoe closet and ‘LP Rose’ Champagne room, snap a picture in the Barbie Box and dine from its small plates menu inside as usual.
