Festive music, mince pies, twinkling lights and wooden cabins will still come to Manchester this Christmas – despite the cancellation of the annual markets.
Popup mini festival Bar Hütte is bringing ski-village vibes to Great Northern for 2020 – setting up ‘safe, sanitised, pre-bookable private huts’ for families, friends and dates during winter.
Opening on 12 November, Bar Hütte will see a mixture of indoor and outdoor chalets dotted across the square near Deansgate – with mugs of mulled wine and plates of oven-baked pizzas available to order at the touch of a button.
Cocktails and soft drinks will also be available – with everything delivered directly to your table.
Karaoke booths are being set up exclusively for the occasion – so you can try your hand at belting out your favourite Christmas ditty on the microphone if the mood strikes.
Kids are also welcome at Bar Hütte this year – with a giant Christmas tree in the square and a ‘Special Santa’ ticket package offering little ones the chance to tuck into a free hot chocolate before meeting Santa Claus himself.
The Bar Hütte team say they have integrated a variety of new safety measures for 2020 to ensure social distancing, as well as making sure every hütte is clean and COVID-secure.
Hüttes can be reserved with a non-refundable booking fee of £50 – which guarantees a 1 hour and 45 minute slot.
Each guest will enjoy a complimentary Bombardino, pizza to share, and the opportunity to have a go on karaoke.
Bookings are open now.
