The Anthologist

Drake and Morgan’s The Anthologist is due to open at One St Peter’s Square, Manchester on Monday 2nd July!

Guaranteeing a relaxed atmosphere, the new all-day bar and restaurant is Manchester’s newest treasure. With an open kitchen, striking cocktail bar and distinctive dining areas, it’s the perfect setting for any occasion.

In the heart of Manchester city centre, this new northern bar and restaurant is the ideal place to take a break from bustling city life.

Drake & Morgan managing director Jillian MacLean said: “We are delighted to be opening our second bar and restaurant in Manchester. We have a genuine affection for Manchester and its people. It’s a very proud and distinctively different city that does things in its own unique style.

“That fact has underpinned our approach with The Anthologist in Manchester. We want to introduce a refreshingly independent bar-restaurant experience that comes with a few new exciting additions for our lovely customers and feels very much part of this great city.”
