The terrace at 20 Stories is impressive even at the worst of times. The highest rooftop bar in Manchester, this towering spot boasts quality cocktails, photogenic bites and sweeping views of city’s ever-growing metropolis. It really is a must-see for visitors and locals alike... and now there’s even more reason to check it out.
Sponsored by luxury Champagne purveyors Moet & Chandon, the elevated space has been transformed into an enchanting winter wonderland forest, complete with twinkling lights and the menus to match. Two giant snow globes take centre stage; with lush greenery and airy vibes alongside the wintry garden.
The overall feel is magical, perfect for a festive celebration. Concerned about the plunging winter temperatures? Fear not, the globes are surprisingly roomy yet cosy with blankets. There's even outdoor heaters keeping the rest of the terrace toasty too. Seasonal drinks have taken over the bar, with hot cocktails alongside festive fizz numbers. My pick? The Mulled Hot Toddy laced wth cognac and spices; the ultimate accompaniment to the live music on offer.
Whether you're in need of after-dinner drinks or searching for a Christmas party destination, 20 Stories should be on your list. From festive cocktail masterclasses in the daytime to live music in the evening, there's something for everyone. And if you do go, don’t forget those Instagram snaps - you'd be hard-pressed to find a prettier place for drinks this winter.
Into The Woods is now open at 20 Stories, NO. 1 Spinningfields, 1 Hardman Square, Manchester, M3 3EB until the end of March 2020.
