Description

Located on the corner of Newton Street and Dale Street, Cottonopolis Food & Liquor is a late night bar and restaurant in the rapidly developing pocket of Manchester's Northern Quarter.

Previously housing a tailor's studio, this grade II-listed building has been transformed into a swanky, 120-cover gourmet restaurant. Boasting an industrial-like openness with stripped red brick walls, chrome design features and cerulean accents, Cottonopolis is a sleek new addition to the Northern Quarters food and drink scene. 

At the back of the venue you'll find a large open kitchen that serves up a menu full of Asian-inspired small plates - think deep fried crab claws, dim sum and sushi. Tuck into an assortment of these dishes (which range from around £6-9) and wash it all down with Japan's favourite drink, Sake!

Great food & Service, entertaining North American business colleagues who enjoyed the atmosphere of the bar visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 21 Feb 2017

Really good food which came quickly. Only real downside was that service for drinks was on the slow side - it took about 15 minutes for a bottle of wine to arrive, by which time had finished our mains - but it was a busy Saturday night. visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 18 Feb 2017

My friends visited for down south and I wanted to take them somewhere where we could have a bite to eat and a few drinks! I booked a table for 8.30 but they were stuck in traffic on the way up meaning we were running slightly late for our reservation. I tried to call 3 or 4 times but received no answer- it was obviously a busy Friday night! We arrived at the venue around 20 mins late and our table had already been given away but once I explained I tried to call the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a table within 5 mins- so that was fantastic! We orders food and every single plate was delicious! Cocktails were also lovely and having table service until 10pm was great as we didn't have to queue at the bar! I will 100% return and recommend to all! visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 17 Feb 2017

It is becoming increasingly difficult in Manchester to stand out from the Restaurant crowd. But in a City where there is so much overrated nonsense in the cuisine sector, Cottonopolis is a true contender and an absolute delight. Despite a small kitchen, the food is delivered timely and is completely delicious. The service matches the quality of food with attentive, knowledgable and friendly servers at the table and at the bar. Congratulations! visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 18 Feb 2017

Great food and ambience but the last 2 visits I have had there I have left stinking of oil / cooking. Not sure whether you have turned down (or switched off!) your extraction / ventilation over the open kitchen but it's less than pleasant getting out of there and stinking! visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 15 Feb 2017

Valentine's night and couldn't have been more dissapointing. Set Menu was unbelievably expenses for what we received. Time in between portions was really poor, to the point where we requested prawn crackers to tie us over, only to be charged for them also.. Charged £177 for a bill which came to £117. And whist this was an honest mistake, it just left us even more disillusioned. A few McDonalds cheeseburgers on the way home to fill the hole. I don't normally bother with reviews but it was piss poor effort from a place which I'd prvuoisly held in quite high regard. hiddendistribution@hotmail.com visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 14 Feb 2017

I'm giving it 3 stars because the food was amazing but the overall experience was not what i expected. There was no recognizable restaurant area, it was more like a very lively bar serving food. We had people from the bar standing around us while we were trying to eat, people trying to get past us and banging into us the busier the place got, was very uncomfortable. The music was very loud as well, we couldn't have a conversation. I believe if they cornered off a section for people eating and served that food it would be amazing but the way it is now. It just doesn't work. visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 11 Feb 2017

Generally a great experience. Really enjoyed the drinks. However, when we arrived there was not enough room for the 19 people I had booked tables for, there was nothing on the tables that said the table was booked at 6.30 so got a bit of grief from some of your customers and also we were asked to leave at 4.15 when we had booked a table until 4.30. Would definitely come back though visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 11 Feb 2017

Great food! Great service! Booked for Satuday lunch mid afternoon, venue was very busy and fortunately not too noisy. Have previously been mid week, again at lunch time which I would recommend if you prefer a more quiet dining experience. Would have preferred not to have been seated on a high bar stool in the middle of the dining area. visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 04 Feb 2017

The food was good however I would not come back on a weekend. Our table was early evening and we were unable to hold a conversation as the music was excessively loud it was as if we were eating in a night club. The way our table was next to the bar and spent majority of dinner being knocked and at times being sat on. People were also leaving used glasses on our table. Would consider returning on the week day for food but definitely not on the weekend. visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 28 Jan 2017

As AA Gill once noted; This is a city that drinks first and eats after, with its mouth open. Food was okay and we felt sorry for the staff. All their hard work being literally drowned out by loud naff dance music. Please leave the restaurant and open your own quieter Bao venture. visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 28 Jan 2017

Food was all good quality but some portion sizes were rather small considering the cost e.g. veg tempura had 5 small pieces. Service was pleasant but inefficient with 3 different people serving us not knowing where others were up to. One dish came 10 min after everything else had been finished and table cleared. A shame because the atmosphere is good and interior impressive. visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 28 Dec 2016

Friendly and attentive staff. Food was delicious. Good drinks selection. Location is great. I didn't really enjoy how the restaurant tables are scattered in the middle of the bar.

The food was great and the staff were very friendly but it was a bit odd that the late night drinking crowd could just wander in and sit at our table - the food isn't cheap and we felt a bit encroached on. It was difficult to talk to each other as the music was very loud - not sure it's quite right for dinner. We still had a lovely evening though. visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 25 Nov 2016

After a mix up with our initial booking our table was confirmed. I've been to Cottonopolis for food before but nobody else in my party had. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the food. It's a really good standard, very tasty and plentiful. Unfortunately we were booked in quite late so it was a little noisy to sit and enjoy a chat but fois wise you couldn't fault it. visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 12 Nov 2016

Food over priced. Some tasty, but some substandard. Service was poor and haphazard. 3 dishes forgotten about, chased 3 times. Then one arrived wrong, eventually we had to leave before the final one turned up. We were told it was taken off the bill, but wasn't, but we were so bored of waiting we just paid and left. Drinks were great and staff were nice, just incredibly unattentive. visited Cottonopolis Food & Liquor on 05 Nov 2016
