A new island-themed outdoor beach club is coming to the heart of Manchester city centre just in time for summer.

Remember that holiday feeling? Beachy tunes and sipping cocktails with your mates?

Foreign travel may currently still be off the cards for many amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but luckily this year, you won’t even have to leave Manchester to get that summer feeling as it’s arriving right to our doorsteps next week.

From the brilliant team behind Bar Hütte – the people who brought music, mince pies and private alpine cabins to Great Northern last Christmas – the Great Northern Beach Club is set to see “the best of the Ibiza beach” arrive at Great Northern Square from Monday 12th April, and you can expect “bohemian vibes, chilled music, sensational cocktails and incredible service”.


Taking influence from the classic Balearic beach bar scene, the Great Northern Beach Club is said to be the perfect place to “revitalise the social life you deserve”.


With a number of COVID safety measures put in place, the Great Northern Beach Club boasts plenty of socially-distanced seats and tables on its outdoor terrace, where you can enjoy the buzz of central Manchester whilst sipping a strawberry daiquiri, chilled beer or iced bottle of rosé.

You can also enjoy some quality street food from ever-popular Great Northern residents South Manny Flavaz, Platzki and Alex’s Bakery too.


If all of that didn’t sound brilliant enough as it is, from 17th May, there will also be a sunset, ‘mambo’ style lounge too, which is set to feature exclusive bookable private beach huts that are ideal for long summer nights and memorable moments.

The relaxed atmosphere will be boosted by Balearic beats and regular DJ sets throughout the day, plus a wide range of upcoming events, including Aperol weekenders and gin festivals.

You can make advanced bookings via the Great Northern Beach Club website here.
