What they say:
Serving a selection of exotic cocktails and full of character, Bollibar is the newest addition to Manchester's ever-growing cocktail bar scene. Housed underneath the Asha's restaurant, the bar's talented team of award-wining mixologists have worked tirelessly to produce a menu that perfectly embodies the vibrant and spirited mood of the restaurant. Opulent by nature, the entire project is the brain-child of legendary Indian singer Asha Bholse, who's already opened successful restaurants in Dubai, Birmingham and Qatar. With a passion for Indian cuisine, she hopes to bring the latest eye-opening flavours of the Sub Continent to Manchester's curry-mad streets. Wash down those spicy dishes with an exquisite, ice-cold cocktail made using the finest spirits and freshest fruits.
What we say:
Manchester has long had an inexplicable infatuation with Indian flavours. From their curry-mile to the many takeaway joints that punctuate the city's Victorian layout, this cultured city is constantly showcasing the latest asian flavour combinations, and much like the rest of the UK, has recently witnessed an explosion of new, trendy cocktail bars. It's a difficult market to break into; a challenge that the team at Bollibar will undoubtedly be able to overcome. With the award-winning James Jones and experienced Marian Beke at the helms of this bar, the cocktail menu is guaranteed to stand out, both for its flavour and beautiful presentation. The team knows what it takes to be a successful bar; with bagfuls of experience and the devil-may-care attitude that often separates venues from their competitors, they'll definitely climb up Manchester's steep nightlife ladder.
