Three Little Words, an independent, premium cocktail bar and restaurant, will open its doors on Sunday 15th September.
Set under stunning Grade-II* listed brick railway arches in central Manchester, Three Little Words is the sister venue to the brand-new home of Manchester Gin – the Spirit of Manchester Distillery, which is located in the same premises.
The restaurant and bar, on Watson Street Manchester, will treat guests to lovingly created cocktails from gin-based original concoctions to the perfectly made classics. Drinks are complemented by a fresh, seasonal food menu that takes inspiration from the botanicals that define the gins distilled on site.
The bar and restaurant, nestled under six of the city’s open brick railway arches, will house 110 covers – 70 in its contemporary restaurant, and 40 in its luxurious cocktail bar – and from Sunday 15th September guests will be able to explore the innovative modern food and drink menus seven days a week.
Three Little Words’ cocktail menu will be ever-evolving to explore new concoctions. Its inventive bar team will craft seasonal specials and interesting spirits that excite every palate.
Volume 1 starts in the same way as Manchester Gin – with a love story. The menu moves through Lust, Rapture, Devotion, Eternity and ends with Ultimatum, creating flavours that evoke every stage of love: from excitement and freshness, through to darker, heavier flavours. All created using premium spirits shaken or stirred to perfection.
Within the restaurant, an international, modern interpretation of Manchester Gin’s botanicals will be brought to life. Flowing with the seasons, a menu of small and large plates will conjure up unique flavours.
With 16 years’ experience, including numerous years at Manchester’s Evelyn’s, classically trained head chef and development chef, Jimmy Carr said: “At Three Little Words, we want fresh flavours to come through in all of our dishes. As much as possible, all of our ingredients are locally sourced, and being in a city with such a rich culture and history, we’ve aimed to incorporate this into our varied menu.”
Manchester Gin Co-Founder and Master Distiller, Seb Heeley, said: “This is the culmination of a life ambition for Jen and I. From the very first day we met, we talked about our dreams to open our own bar, so this feels like a huge milestone for us! We couldn’t have started this venture without the support of Manchester, so to be able to create 45 jobs and give something back to this amazing city means the world to us.”
Three Little Words will be officially opening on Sunday 15th September. The bar and restaurant will be open from 10am every day, until 12am Sunday – Thursday, and 1am Friday and Saturday.
