A new canalside wine bar is coming to Kampus in Manchester

Le Social will serve a range of natural and organic wines, beers, cocktails, aperitifs and soft drinks.

Wine specialist Le Social is set to join the burgeoning canalside community at Kampus this summer – taking over The Bungalow until the end of September.

The Capital & Centric development will welcome Le Social – which was founded by wine professional Jérôme Boullier during lockdown as a door-to-door delivery service – from Thursday 5 August.

Le Social will serve a range of natural and organic wines, beers, cocktails and aperitifs within the confines of the £250m Kampus neighbourhood – which is also home to the likes of Common & Co’s Cornerstone pub and Nell’s Pizza.

A soft drink selection made in collaboration with Copenhagen’s MURI Drinks will be available, too.

Le Social founder Jérôme Boullier said: “We really want to create an inclusive, warm and friendly neighbourhood bar for everyone to enjoy, with that holiday feeling that we’re all craving.


“We are looking forward to bringing our relaxed offering to the Kampus community and the city centre.”

Manchester collective CHIC will be spinning disco, funk and house tunes on Le Social’s opening night, and a series of wine and food events will take place across the two-month residency – including a boozy brunch with fellow Kampus residents Bread Flower.


There will also be a kitchen takeover from Burmese chili brand Rice Over Everything. 

Last month, Kampus officially unveiled the grand opening of The Stack – inviting people to view new homes in a redeveloped 1960s university building on the waterside. 

The development is home to hundreds of modern one and two-bed apartments across five buildings – with a central garden overlooking the canal.

The arrival of Le Social follows in the footsteps of Isca Wines’ residency at Kampus earlier this summer. 

Various food and drink pop-ups and events will continue to take place moving ahead – with residents and non-residents all welcome. 

Le Social will take over the Bungalow at Kampus from August 5 until the end of September. It will be open Thursday and Friday 4pm-10pm; Saturday and Sunday 12pm -10pm. Tables will be walk-in only. Find out more online.
