Impossible Manchester Restaurant and Gin Bar Review

Impossible Manchester Restaurant and Gin Bar Review: October 2017

The beautiful, bold, Be – Impossible Manchester, located in an enviable position on Peter Street, have opened their theatrical doors, that has a 280 cover bar and restaurant space, a gin possible nest and the theatre of dreams, which awaits your arrival.

Décor was an eclectic mix of the quirky, unusual and the contemporary.  With a mix of high ceilings with decadent chandeliers, chrome accessories, lanterns, wood tree bases and retro records.

We began our journey with a classic porn star martini shaken up with Russian standard, butterscotch liqueur, passion fruit, vanilla, pineapple and lemon finished with some fizzy prosecco.  Let tasty taco time comment with the Greek Good filled with feta, avocado, black bean and salsa rossa.  also, the Asian Spice stuffed with silken tofu, cucumber, Chinese leaf spring onion, chilli, soya and ginger.  Also, loving the lush handmade crispy duck spring rolls with plum and schezwan sauce.

Mains included the brilliant beer battered cod and chips with a dollop of mushy peas and tartar sauce.  The super sticky halloumi salad with edamame beans, peanut and sesame seeds was an ideal light bite.  All made even better with the arrival of some creative cocktails including the lovely refreshing sipper cooler and the Godfather Sour with fabulous four roses yellow label, disaronno, egg white, lemon and angostura bitters.

Deliciously devilish desserts included the crafted chocolate pave with salted caramel, peanut butter powder and ice-cream.  Also, the cherry parfait with bakewell granola, poached cherries and popping candy.  Both washed down with the lush lavender 75 blended with Tanqueray, lemon, homemade lavender honey and prosecco.  My fav cocktail Hugo the Chameleon aka the colour changer…just wait and see!

The Gin marvellous magnificence started at the telephone box, take the call or you will never know and see where it leads you – to a den of devilish delights.  Five words; Gigantic Gorgeous Gathering of Gins.  The Gin possible hidden nest is a hub of gintastic comfort in an sophisticated, but cosy Canadian log style cabin retreat.  Set on the mezzanine this dreamy hideaway have over 63 different gins and the gin machine, a cryogenic freezer which freezes spirits to minus 74 degrees to form edible frozen cocktails.

Our gin master, showed his flare and skill setting up our sorbets of gin sin, with the Lady Rhoden’s Fella Repella.  A lip-smackingly chilled way to taste test some fabulous gins in an innovative style.  The Boston tea party was sheer bliss and a must try.

Dine, Drink, Dance, Don’t Dream, but instead Do…go along and make it possible!

Thank you for reading 🙂

Côte Manchester Vegetarian Menu Review: October 2017

Magnificent Manchester Côte Brasserie, located on St Mary’s Street, is a fabulous family friendly French brasserie with all the elegance and charm of a quaint, rustic and rural, French village eatery with a twist of contemporary and classy city chic. Think Brittany meets Gers with a hint of Paris.

A homely hearty hub, from which to watch the world go by and observe the city dwellers eclectic tastes and styles.

The Living Room Restaurant and Bar Manchester Review: September 2017

Destination Deansgate Manchester, where The Living Room Restaurant and Bar awaited our arrival to showcase exactly what they had to offer. Welcomed warmly, by both the door security and floor staff, we were shown through to the main dining area, décor featured a mix of creams, subtle metallics, pastel greens and rose, with feature lit potted trees, well placed angled mirrors, plush booth seating with plumped up cushions all gave that dining in a secret garden feel. Subdue lighting along with some mixed-up music beats set a relaxed scene. The cool, chic, contemporary stylish décor theme continued throughout this classy dining experience.

Amazing accessories, such as the brushed metallic menus, gold dust speckled plates, brushed copper pepper & Salt pots and neutral stone napkins dressed the table to impress. The devil is in the detail and The Living Room have got this one down. Nice nibbles included olives, ciabatta bread with balsamic dipping oils all washed down with a novelty yet quality cocktail; The Polaroid Martini was picture perfection, but get ready to say cheese, because now it’s your turn to shine, as your snap shot will be attached to this innovative cocktail creation. The cocktail also delivered on taste, mixed up with Absolut Mango, White Peach Puree, Vanilla Sugar syrup, Pineapple Juice and Lemon Juice, this drink is now one of my personal favs.
