A warm welcome awaits you at Browns Manchester.

Standing proud on the corner of York Street, Browns Manchester is housed in a stunning Edwardian baroque building that was originally a banking hall before housing the ‘Athenaeum’, one of the city’s most notorious watering holes.

Behind the building’s handsome façade, a stunning high-ceilinged interior, awash with original marble, wood panelling and art nouveau detail creates a truly atmospheric setting, perfectly blending the classic and contemporary.

Offering a vibrant brasserie and bar experience with a commitment to first-class service, Browns is just a short stroll from the city’s bohemian Northern Quarter and ideally placed for relaxation and refreshment after a visit to one of Manchester’s many attractions or a spot of retail therapy.

Whether it’s a lazy lunch, afternoon tea or à la carte dinner, our menu delivers fresh and seasonal dishes to suit any occasion. And if it’s drinks you’re in need of, we offer an exceptional range, including innovative cocktails, global wines, artisan spirits and chilled beers, so take the weight off your feet and let our welcoming bar team do the rest.
