Are you dreading the stress of preparing Christmas Dinner this year? Frustrated by options to bring in the new year? The Hilton Manchester on Deansgate are offering the chance to spend the festive period in the sky.

On Christmas Day you could be treated to a delightful festive four-course meal at the Podium restaurant. The meal will begin with champagne cocktails on arrival for adults and a Christmas gift for the younger guests making sure all bases are covered.

The menu includes traditional options which include smoked salmon blinis, followed by turkey served with all the trimmings and Christmas pudding. Alternate options such as parsnip soup, seared scallops, or a trio of beetroots with pickled walnuts, goats curd, watercress and pomegranate pearls are available.

If you fancy trying something different for dessert this Christmas the Podium menu offers a winter fruits cheesecake or salted caramel chocolate torte, accompanied by an Oreo crumb and crème anglaise for something less traditional.

There is also a five-course cocktail menu available at Cloud 23 which features Perrier Jouët Champagne cocktails and bespoke tapas style taster dishes – in the surroundings of the sky bar’s chic Zeus Lounge that’ll be decked out in a festive, winter theme.

Christmas Day at the Podium is priced at £99 per adult, £45 per child aged 8-14 and £25 for children aged 7 and under. The alternate option at Cloud 23 costs £125 per person and includes a 5 course festive cocktail progression with food pairing.

The celebrations continue at The Hilton Deansgate as New Year approaches with two New Year’s Eve balls on offer.

You could attend their New Year’s Eve Hogmanay Ball which starts at 19:00 with a cocktail reception. Following comes a four-course meal as well as entertainment from a live band and a DJ to bring in 2018.

The second option is the Cloud 23 Masquerade Party. Get a ticket and a mask and enjoy an evening of mystery and style.

The New Year’s Eve Hogmanay Ball is priced at £79 per adult. The New Year’s Eve Masquerade ball at Cloud 23 is priced at £75 per adult for standing which includes welcome cocktail and floating food. Seated tickets are £125 per adult and include a welcome drink, floating food, half a bottle of champagne and table.
