First Street welcomes naughty, new restaurant ‘School for Scandal’ this August.
Goody two shoes go home – School for Scandal is bringing a little bit of the mischevious to Manchester’s dining scene. School for Scandal has set up shop on First Street in the former site of The Laundrette.
Combining a little bit of Manhattan cool with a Manchester edge, the decor for this all-day dining spot is ‘boarding school gone bad’ with wood panelling offset with old-school tattoo imagery.
Boasting an outdoor terrace, School for Scandal might become your new post-work watering hole. Head there during happy hour (Monday-Friday 5-7pm) to get classic cocktails, like a cosmo and espresso martini, for just a fiver.
If you’re after something a bit different, opt for a side of movie nostalgia with your drink as you sip on a ‘Pretty in Pink’, ‘American Pie’, or a ‘Breakfast Club’. Round up your mates and try your luck with the ‘Wheel of Fortune’ – a sharing cocktail worth £35. Spin the wheel and you might just get it this epic drink for free…or you might end up paying double: only the cocktail gods can decide.
As it turns cooler in the evenings, pop inside, sink into a cosy booth and get stuck into some great grub. There’s a lot on offer here from tacos and burgers to steaks and pizzas. On Sundays, there’s a hearty Sunday lunch on offer complete with live music for a chilled out day.
The restaurant is set to remind you of your school days with its delicious desserts too: tuck into knickerbocker glory or a chocolate fondue with marshmallows and strawberries. Make sure you try School for Scandal’s signature sweet treat – their freshly made crullers: scrumptious pastry topped with powdered sugar or icing.
Embrace your naughty side and bunk off for the day at School for Scandal!
School for Scandal is open from August 20th, Monday – Friday, 12pm – 12am and Saturday – Sunday, 10am – 12am.
