Our tips for where to spend your time whilst not at the event.


The Midland Hotel

The Midland is a beautiful Grade II listed Hotel in the centre of Manchester. Just 200m from Oxford Road Station, 800m from Piccadilly Station and across the road from Manchester Central; the hotel is ideally situated. The hotel has two acclaimed restaurants, Adam Reid at The French and Mr Cooper's House & Garden, as well as great spa and leisure facilities.

Don Giovanni

Situated just a few minutes’ walk from Manchester Central, multi-award winning restaurant Don Giovanni is the oldest independently-owned Italian in Manchester.

Now working in partnership with Michelin star chef Jean-Christophe Novelli, the restaurant has a selection of bespoke dishes from the chef available on their a la carte menu.



Albert's Schloss

Albert’s Schloss is Manchester’s bohemian beer palace, serving the freshest Pilsner this side of the Danube. Add to this, heritage brews on the taps, cocktails, and 'push for Prosecco' buttons on every table and it’s a great place for drinks whatever your tipple.
