Spread across three floors, Impossible features a bar, theatre and restaurant all of which are stocked full of surprises and secrets.

The restaurant's interiors are inspired by creator Aaron Mellor's travels, as well as paying homage to famous Mancunians. There will be private booths, and, most excitingly, a hidden gin palace that serves 63 types of gin and has a cryogenic freezer, meaning spirits can be frozen to make edible cocktails. Other unusual touches include a molecular cocktail laboratory which will have an alcoholic mist condenser and a lickable Champagne bubble machine.

The fun continues in the downstairs 'Theatre Du Impossible', which is set to be an immersive nightlife experience with a catwalk, theatre and private VIP areas. On the ground floor, there is a restaurant operating from 12pm - 9pm, and along with classic dishes will serve unusual bites such as kangaroo tacos and salt and pepper crickets. 

The mezzanine floor features a hidden gin palace, boasting 63 gins from across the world and the molecular cocktail laboratory makes loads of weird concoctions. There’s also a cryogenic freezer that’ll create edible, frozen cocktails.
