On Sunday 5th December, NAM Audiophile Bar & Restaurant will transform its basement into an independent pop-up store for one-day-only.

From 11pm-5pm a selection of Manchester brands will take-over the space to showcase their beautiful collections and artwork. Joining NAM will be ethical lifestyle and clothing label Io e te, conscious and delicious wine from Le Social, vintage and antique homewares from OneOhSix, illustations by Zandra Rai Arts Co. and Depop dealer Chris Henderson will be bringing the finest vintage garms.

Borderless Grooves will be taking over NAM’s superior audiophile system, curating the soundtrack for the day. So, grab a drink, have a browse and enjoy some first-rate music through the best speakers in the city.

While Io e te have found their home in Manchester, their collections are globally inspired, deeply influenced by the founders’ southern Italian heritage. Every collection is carefully thought through and directly influenced by the ancient Italian town of Tropea, creating full rounded collections of unisex clothing, accessories, and homeware. Sustainability steers the production of each collection, with each piece crafted from carefully considered eco-friendly fabrics and labels, all the way through to the packaging used.

Wine connoisseurs Le Social pride themselves on handpicking unique, quirky wines
with cultural heritage, a geographical identity and a story to tell. These are wines which
make a positive social impact throughout the supply chain, from the people working in
the vineyards, to the friends and families who will live a special moment sharing them.
At the core of Le Social is a focus on community, generosity and sustainability, while
increasing representation of female and queer winemakers in their range.

OneOhSix specialises in up cycled, pre-loved furniture for a more sustainable future
as well as beautiful home accessories. From cosy chairs to terracotta vases and cute
sculpted candles, their mission is to present a collection of interior finds that have been
given a new lease of life.

Manchester based illustrator Zandra Rai will be bringing a selection of her limited-
edition prints. A mix of hand drawn illustrations and digitally manipulated artwork, that take influence from old school Japanese Art, architecture and streetwear.

Last but not least, Chris Henderson will be joining the pop-up store to present the very
best garms from his vintage collection. Making a name for himself as a Depop dealer,
Chris sources pre-loved vintage clothing, gives them a bit of TLC before they are ready
for a new owner.

The pop-up store will be the first in a series of takeovers in NAM’s basement. Make
sure you head down this Sunday, so you don’t miss out on finding some top tier gifts
for your loved ones this Christmas, or even spoil yourself while championing
independent businesses. Keep up to date with events at NAM here.
