Grafene Manchester Dinner Review

Grafene Manchester Dinner Review: April 2018

Grafene is a unique cutting edge innovative restaurant and bar located in upmarket King Street in Manchester city centre.  Owners Paul and Kathryn, with a wealth of experience behind them, used this knowledge to bring Manchester a modern British menu, with food being locally sourced where possible, to all be enjoyed in a relaxed setting.

Décor is an mix of industrial, with earthy coloured upholstered seating, softened with fabrics, fresh flowers and amazing artwork.  All this along with the wide-open windows, that allows for masses of natural light, has brought the countryside indoors, vamped up with some city edge.

Seating includes intimate tables for two, booths for larger gatherings with friends or family, and a discreet private dining area, that is offset from the main room, which gives the feeling of privacy without being cut off from the atmosphere.

Located within an enviable postcode, near to all the main transport hubs such as Manchester Piccadilly & Oxford Road train stations, the Novotel Manchester Centre, is the ideal place to enjoy all of the city action, from a convenient and central 4 star base.

Make your way through the revolving doors, into the bright airy reception area, and prepare to check in for a sensational stay.  Make use of the interactive touch screen system that provides helpful tourist information.

Junior Suites immediately have that wow factor, focusing on your needs to provide a relaxed experience.  An open plan arrangement, with a super cosy comfortable bed, with amazing artwork above the bedhead, a flat screen television, and a cleverly designed modular bathroom.

The adjoining lounge area, with a second flat screen television, comfortable sofa, relaxer chair set within a Manchester city artwork background scene, along with a Nespresso coffee machine, Bose Ipod dock, complimentary broadband, and mini bar stocked with water was an ideal place to kick back, relax and chill out.
