I don't know, I'm sure someone told me they'd opened up in a proper unit. I hope I've not made it up.

Rapha has opened up in Manchester now too I think, if thats anyones thing. Got a coffee shop in there too I heard.

"A Sleuth fave has just opened on Deansgate. Grindsmith, the elegant coffeehouse shed just over from the Cathedral, is now giving him fine caffeine boosts in the Great Northern complex. Sleuth loves the flat white."


From ManConfidential…

Walked past last week and it's just a coffee bike in a shop with two very bored assistants on their phones.

Wouldn't walk all the way down there for nothing. What a strange place to open

Theres an exhibition space on the floor above however, not sure if its a coffee spot with an exhibition space or an exhibition space with a small coffee bar at the bottom.

Popped into Rapha too on the opening day, pretty cool spot. Filled with tones of tiny little rapha/cycling references, (as expected) old jerseys, art, books etc some of which i would of completely missed had the geezer in there called vince not pointed them out to me. Ground floor bike storage and a little espresso bar, 1st is the store and cafe, 2nd exhibition space. Worth checking out, was told theres a number of club cycles throughout the week and plenty on offer throughout the year. I'm not huge on the cycling myself but found it interesting nonetheless. Good job imo

major shit location. Would do far better as a NQ spot surely?

Also Manchester Confidential are a bunch of wankers, just thought I'd get that off my chest

NQ is pretty well covered for coffee so makes some sense. They must've made decent money off that ridiculous pod if they're opening a shop as well already.

Agree re ManCon but it is good to keep up to date with openings. Seems like new bars are opening constantly.

Don't forget Grindsmith was partly crowd funded, its just two chaps who really know Coffee and have invested massive amounts of time and effort.

The Great Northern area is also massively improved from the days of Teasers, Squares, Relish and Brannigans!

They're filming on king street today if anyones about there. Turned it into 1930s NY for Genius starring Colin Firth. Looks good.

In fact a lot of parking is suspended around the city because they're filming in so many locations.
