Australasia Bar, Manchester
The modern glass entrance feels more like the Louvre’s pyramids than your average drinking hole. And the interior doesn’t disappoint either. With grand ceilings, a soothing but contemporary colour scheme and a seriously classy set-up – it’s Australia, but not as you’ll see it in the movies.
“We chose somewhere not too smart, not too casual and where we didn’t have to watch each other awkwardly eat for the first time,” Daniel says. And they found the perfect compromise, with a variety of expertly crafted cocktails, a wine list of impressive proportions and a gourmet menu on hand if they fancied it. They describe their food as modern Australian, underpinned by European cooking, with a blend of Indonesian, Southeast Asian and Japanese – and as confusing as that sounds, the menu looks mouthwatering.
If you’re still going strong by 11pm, the restaurant transforms into a Late Lounge with guest DJs to help set the mood. You could find yourself in for a spot of dancing too – depending on how many cocktails you’ve had by then.
You can see pictures of their delicious food and beautiful decor on their website – www.australasia.uk.com. And if you’re already convinced, book a table on 0161 831 0288.
