Situated in a beautiful Grade II listed building in Manchester's Northern Quarter, Cottonopolis oozes charm and sophistication. The building maintains many of its original features including the bare wooden floorboards where tailors once trod in their clogs. The interior décor is stunning, bespoke and luxuriously finished. There are four elements to choose from on the Japanese-inspired menu - Ice, Fire, Steam and Oil - and you can expect sashimi, pork yakitori, duck bao buns, vegetable tempura and katsu chicken amongst other small plates on offer. The drinks menu is compact and well thought out and features Czech tank beer, cocktails and a selection of sake.
Cottonopolis will be opening this year’s MFDF festival dome with a spectacular two night Secret Supper Event on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th September.
The Secret Supper series has been gaining national acclaim for taking its immersive dining experiences to the next level.
In the most ambitious project to date the Visual Architects will be transforming the Dining Dome in the heart of the festival hub to create an incredible background for the evening.
The experience will be based around the Japanese Cult Classic film Battle Royale. Released in 2000 it tells the story of 42 ninth grade students forced to fight to the death by the Japanese government under the ‘Battle Royale’ act. The film was a pre-cursor to the hugely successful Hunger Games series.
Hosted by Sensei Kitano the unique 6 course menu has been created by the Cottonopolis Head Chef Joe Grant and will begin with a glass of Prosecco on arrival.
Tickets are very limited and priced at £65 and will include a glass of Prosecco on arrival and a 6 course menu.
