Northern Quarter’s Bluu Becomes Foundry Project

Meet your new Northern Quarter hangout

Say goodbye to Northern Quarter’s Bluu!  The venue has recieved a new lease of life as it has been transformed into Foundry Project Manchester. The all-day drinking and dining spot set to be a hub of chilled-out fun.

Boasting sites in Harrogate and Edinburgh, Foundry Project gets a Manchester twist taking inspiration from our industrial past. Thanks to a huge £500,000 makeover, the historic Old Smithfield Market site is set to have stripped BACK interiors with exposed beams and polished concrete. Relax with friends in leather booths under neon light signage.

When it comes to food at Foundry, it’s all about burgers. Tuck into a lamb and feta cheese, crispy chicken or bhaji burger, washed down with a very NQ craft beer. If burgers aren’t your thing, then their spiced lamb and aubergine or peri peri king prawn pizza are equally tasty options.


Make sure you save space for dessert as Foundry have some epic sweet treats on offer! 

Foundry have created their very own cocktail selection from the ‘Gin Fashionista’ (Hayman’s Sloe Gin, brown sugar and rose water) to ‘Fill A Watermelon with Rum’ (a heady mix of Wray and Nephew mixed with Gifford Watermelon and Velvet Falernum and Apple juice). It’d be rude not to order some halloumi fries or tacos from their snack menu to nibble on over cocktails.

To accommodate everyone from those on date nights to those just chilling out or brunching, Foundry Project is split into different zones. The front of Foundry is perfect for a laidBACK hangout, with a more intimate area for lunches and dinners towards the BACK. After dark, head down to the basement for late night dancing.

Look out for lots of fun stuff going on at Foundry, including pub quizzes hosted by local drag queens to live music and bottomless brunches.
