Hottest private dining trends in Manchester right now:
Manchester’s private dining scene is to die for! And here are some of the trends that you should definitely consider!
Supper clubs – a match made in foodie heaven: where dinner parties meet fine dining. Supper club events are all about coming up with a unique concept that attracts people to the table. And the best part? They offer top-notch nosh for a price much lower than most restaurants in Manchester.
Al fresco rooftop dining – a typical Mancunian pick for the warmer months. Who doesn’t enjoy an indulgent wine and dine with a stunning view of the city? You’re in the right place, as we know the best secret spots in the city for that.
Bottomless brunch – not only all-you-can-eat, but also all-you-can-drink! Enjoy a traditional full English or a stack of fluffy pancakes, followed by unlimited cold pints, prosecco or mimosas. Cheers!
What to consider when browsing private dining rooms in Manchester and trying to choose the perfect one? Here are the essentials:
The size of the private dining room – are you planning a feast for 2, for 20 or for 30 guests? Our smart search engine makes finding the right-sized private dining spot as easy as ABC. We know Manchester private dining venues with all capacities, from small dining rooms to entire private restaurants.
The seating layout – for smaller private dining events (up to 20 guests) it’s best to go for long boardroom tables that give a sense of community. When you’re expecting more people, you might as well choose to seat the guests at several smaller tables.
The type of cuisine – Manchester has a truly wide variety to offer: from Indian restaurants serving mouth-watering curry dishes with naan breads straight from the oven to Italian trattorias specialised in phenomenal pizza and pasta. So, what’s your choice?
Special dietary requirements – always remember to ask your guests about these – the sooner, the better. Many private dining venues in Manchester offer halal, kosher, gluten-free or vegan menus. We know where to find them, so you can count on us if you need one.
Now you know a bit more about how to organise a private dining event, but there’s one more question – where should you book a private dining room? The most popular Manchester areas for that include these hot spots:
Northern Quarter – often called the most lively district of Manchester, it also has a vivacious culinary scene! This area leaves you spoiled for choice – from picture-perfect hipster joints boasting their signature specialities to pubs serving simple but delicious grub, the variety of great private dining spaces is tremendous. Northern Quarter is known as the alternative area of Manchester, too, so if you’re looking for a quirky private dining room, this is the right place to start your search.
Spinningfields – Manchester’s mecca for luxury private dining, Spinningfields is the perfect choice if a genuinely posh private dining experience is what you’re looking for. Top-class fare, splendid dining rooms and the impressive contemporary architecture of the district will undoubtedly leave your guests speechless.
Castlefield – the ultimate option for a canalside private dining experience. Castlefield is charming, located in the city centre and offers many private dining options. What’s not to like?
You'll find restaurants offering per-person packages for as low as £20. But most base their fees on minimum spend which ranges between £250 up to £2000+. Hourly hire fees start from as low as £150. But keep in mind these are the general prices, so it’s best to ask the venue manager for an individual offer. That way, you’ll have the opportunity to negotiate, especially if you’re planning an event for a bigger group or want to host an event during the off-peak time. (All data from Tagvenue.com.)
The good news is that Manchester is full of vibrant and cool private dining spots! We recommend starting your search in Gay Village, where you can find top restaurants with private rooms and eateries along the Rochdale Canal. If you’re craving international cuisine, you should definitely check out Chinatown where you and your guests can enjoy luscious food in complete privacy. Northern Quarter is a treasury of independent restaurants that are hidden along the narrow streets and alleyways. They’re definitely worth exploring if you’re looking for something out of the box!
If you're planning to book a venue in the high-peak season, it's best to make a reservation at least 4 months in advance. This will give you more time to choose from many different offers and you’ll get the best price possible. If you don't have time for advanced booking, don’t worry, there's still hope! Our customers successfully book a party space up to 2 weeks in advance, however, be prepared to have fewer options to choose from.
That’s what we’re here for - to help you find the perfect spot that caters to your needs! Take a look at our ultimate favourites:
Small Hub at King Street Townhouse - This venue offers the perfect setting for intimate gatherings - from family celebrations to corporate meetings. The cosy ambience will immediately make you feel at home and the food will spoil your palate.
The Dalton & Turing at Yotel Manchester Deansgate - Glorious natural light, colourful, stylish decor and plenty of space - this private setting will be the ideal choice for individuals who aren’t afraid of bold backdrops!
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
