Space hoppers? Secret garden paths? Living green walls? Deansgate better get ready, as the eco-friendly Treehouse Hotel is arriving on Blackfriars Street. After its great success in London, this playful spot, which is known for its garden-inspired interiors, will transform the former Renaissance site. Expect a plethora of recycled materials, alongside signature quirky features, including stepping stones in lifts and nostalgic hopscotch carpets.
While its counterpart in the capital has Mexican hotspot Madera, Manchester’s edition sees some big names opening two brand-spanking-new restaurants. The Creameries' Mary-Ellen McTague is taking over the ground space with a crackin' zero-waste menu and a kitchen garden that harvests rainwater. Impressive. Next up, Madre's founder Sam Grainger will be running the fourteenth floor eatery boasting pan-Asian cuisine made from seasonal British produce. Topping it off? Volta's Luke Cowdrey and Justin Crawford will use their industry expertise to lend a helping hand at the sky-high bar, so look forward to dance-worthy tracks.
