One of Manchester’s best boutique hotels has transformed its vaulted basement into a new ‘hidden’ space, home to a 20-seat cinema.
King Street Townhouse, part of Eclectic Hotels, has converted its basement floor into The Cellars, with small luxury cinema, with cosy seating and ambient lighting, plus a private dining room that comes with the use of its own sommelier if desired.
The new addition can host dinners for up to 14 guests, with a five-course tasting menu and the option of a private sommelier for an extra £250.
The hotel, which is operated alongside Great John Street Hotel, Didsbury House Hotel and Eleven Didsbury Park in the Eclectic Hotels portfolio, also boasts an infinity pool on the roof with views across the city.
Eamonn O’Loughlin, founder of the Eclectic Hotels, said they were looking to create ‘a unique and exclusive experience which will be a destination for corporates, locals and visitors to the city alike.’
Originally built in 1872 for the Manchester Salford Trustees Bank, King Street Townhouse is a located within the upper King Street Conservation Area of Manchester city centre. The hotel opened at the end of 2015 and is home to 40 bedrooms, and a Tavern bar and restaurant.
