Arc Inspirations has revealed plans for two new Manchester sites this autumn, including the first branch of Manahatta in the city.

The new opening, in the city centre’s Deansgate area, will be shortly followed by the autumn opening of another branch of Banyan Bar & Kitchen in Spinningfields, Manchester city centre's luxury dining and shopping destination.

The openings will take the number of sites in Arc Inspirations’ portfolio to 18.

Manahatta will open following a £1.8m investment to transform a 230-cover basement site in Deansgate. It will be the brand’s first site to open across the Pennines, joining two Manahatta sites in Leeds.

When it opens, the New York-style bar-restaurant concept will offer brunch, lunch and an evening American-style menu, alongside an extensive cocktail menu.

Arc Inspirations CEO Martin Wolstencroft commented: “Our passion is creating an eco-system of bars that all provide something different for the local community. We’ve honed our craft over the past two decades and developed a portfolio of brands that do just that – they work cohesively together in close proximity without cannibalising custom from one other. We believe this is truly unique.

“Our focus now is growing the estate in a sustainable and organic fashion. After a lot of deliberation and research we identified Manchester as a fantastic demographic fit for the next two openings and we’re confident they will trade very well when we open the doors.”
