Winter has officially arrived in Manchester, and in between the lashings of rain and gale-force winds, a new trend has emerged. Following on from news that The Refinery has returned with their winter igloos, swanky rooftop bar 20 Stories has erected two giant snow globes. The huge, transparent structures occupy the bar's outside terrace, and along with views over the city, the pods will have space for up to 70 people. When they're not booked out for private hire, guests can snuggle up with faux fur blankets and throws, and bagsy a space next to the fire pit.
There's also a winter-perfect menu, with a hot selection of cocktails created in partnership with Talisker Whisky. Brave the chill with a mug of hot toddy, a spiked hot chocolate and their take on a mulled wine. When it comes to food, the restaurant will be serving a more casual menu for guests who take it outside.
20 Stories' two igloos are available for private hire and walk-ins from 27th November 2018. Find them at No 1 Spinningfields, 1 Hardman Square, Manchester, M3 3EB.
