Foundry Project


From morning to night, Foundry Project is the Northern Quarter hotspot for coffee cup sipping, mid-morning brunches and long late lunches.

Foundry Project has taken over Bluu Bar. As is now the perfect place for devouring burgers, polishing off pizzas, sharing margaritas, dancing and mingling in Manchester.

They aim to be "the happiest place in Manchester," so head to the Northern Quarter if you're after hangover-curing brunch at the weekend, late night cocktails and DJs and everything in between. 

Planning an event? The downstairs cocktail bar, with speakeasy vibes is perfect for celebrating that special occasion.
