Manchester Gin has unveiled plans to launch its first bar and restaurant alongside a new city-centre distillery inside the railway arches beneath Manchester Central.
Three Little Words, will be set inside one of the Grade II-listed railway arches between St Peter’s Square and Deansgate-Castlefield on the same site as the Spirit of Manchester Distillery.
The plan is to create a huge new distillery experience encompassing the bar, restaurant and distillery which will span across six of the railway arches and include space for masterclasses and gin tastings.

Three words: Welcome, Wonder Wend. Last week we recorded the installation of our beautiful new copper still. She’ll watch over the new bar and restaurant, the gin school, and the Spirit of Manchester Distillery, where we’ll be moving all production of Manchester Gin. Excited doesn’t come close to describing how we feel right now just a few weeks from opening our doors to you for the first time. Make sure you’re signed up to receive an invite to our soft launch using the link in our bio. #TheSpiritOfManchesterDistillery #ManchesterGin #MadeInManchester
The restaurant area will house 70 diners, will have a food menu inspired by gin and the space for an extra 40 in a separate luxury cocktail bar.
Cocktails will be largely gin-based featuring their own brand of gin, alongside a selection of classic cocktails.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to sample the food and drink for free during a week-long soft launch period between September 6 to 14.
If you want to be in with a chance of some early sampling, make sure you sign up to the newsletter on the Manchester Gin website to receive an invite to the soft launch.
The Manchester Gin portfolio includes Signature, Raspberry Infused, Wild Spirit and Overboard.
Most recently they released Manchester Gin FAC51, a tribute to the legendary Manchester nightclub The Hacienda , which features a black and yellow striped design to match the iconic nightclub’s design.
Manchester Gin co-founder Seb Heeley said: “We couldn’t have started this venture without the support of Manchester, so to be able to create 45 jobs and give something back to this amazing city means the world to us.”
