The Cotton Factory


Now Open

Located at Whitworth Locke, The Cotton Factory is an innovative dining concept, hosting regular kitchen residencies from some of the city's finest independent food businesses.

The 78-cover restaurant features a large central open-plan kitchen, numerous seating options and a plethora of colourful furnishings and fauna, making it a great spot for all group sizes. High ceilings and a beautiful glass-domed roof provides the eatery with plenty of light and further add to The Cotton Factory's aesthetic appeal. Pop-ups usually last between three and six months, with their first resident, Mexican restaurant El Camino, proving to be extremely popular.

The venue also hosts a number of events throughout the year, including epic drag nights, yoga and brunch mornings as well as Pride parties, so you'll want to keep up to date with all their latest goings-on.
