An après-ski village with live music and free-flowing festive drinks is returning to Manchester

Bar Hütte is back and better than ever for 2022.

A popular après-ski village is once again set to take over Manchester city centre to celebrate the festive season from next month.

With things starting to feel more festive than ever as the days go on, Bar Hütte is officially on its way back to the city centre, after what was an undeniably successful run in 2021 and the plenty of years prior, and it’s gearing up to be better than ever this year.

15 cosy Alpine cabins are soon to be dotted across the Great Northern square courtyard in just a couple of weeks time to bring a lively, festive, and vibrant atmosphere.

Inspired by some of the coolest après ski bars in Europe, you can expect everything from live music and free-flowing festive drinks, to the chance to try out the bar’s legendary ‘shot skis’, as well sing-along to all of your favourite tunes inside a private wooden karaoke cabin that’s festooned with twinkling tights.

There’ll be prosecco, cocktails, and more brought to you by your very-own hütte host, all while you belt out Christmas karaoke classics.


The Cosy Alpine Hüttes fit up to eight people for Christmas karaoke, and you can secure your exclusive use of the hütte for 1 hour 40 minutes on Mondays and Tuesdays for £50, and between Wednesday – Sunday for £60.

Then, Bar Hütte’s Party Lodges are the perfect way for larger groups to celebrate Christmas – with a magnum of prosecco, karaoke, and drinks flowing for up to two hours all included and only setting you back £150.


Bar Hütte isn’t just for the grown-ups this year either.

There’s also a family-friendly Santa Claus Club booking, which includes a karaoke hütte for one-hour, free hot chocolate, and colouring pads for the kids, plus the chance to get a picture with Santa Claus.

If arts and crafts, and the chance to take a creation home, is more your cup of tea, then there’s also wreath-making sessions to get involved in, which you can find out more and book your tickets for here.


Each workshop comes complete with a complimentary glass of prosecco too.
