20 Stories

The hottest new bar / restaurant in MCR just opened its doors in Feb 2018 and the people of Manchester weren't aware of what impact this new place would make.

It was the perfect time to open so they could make full use of their 360 degree views of Manchester in the soaring heat during the summer months. It is after all one of the best features of 20 Stories.

When you enter the restaurant you grab the lift up to the 19th floor (but why not the 20th floor? its named after where the food comes from? and you step out into the most amazing restaurant I've had the pleasure of entering.
If you turn left you have views, if you turn right you have the restaurant and bar and more views. Even the toilets have views.

The terrace gives you NYC vibes as soon as you step in. With its amazing views, pretty floral designs & set up, its all about the wow factor and I was simply stunned. I've never seen anything like it and I fell in love with every single detail.

Theres domes covered in flowers in perfect spots where you can zone out with a few of your friends without being amongst other diners. Its the perfect party set up! (plus the perfect instagram pic)
The terrace is sectioned into two parts, a restaurant & a bar.
We were sat in the perfect spot which was right under the sun & overlooking Manchester, it made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant.

The perfectly chosen music totally sealed the deal for us. Imagine this: A drink in your hand ( a Bloody Mary which was delicious) surrounded by stunning views, sat there with a loved one, and just taking everything in with music thats chilled but upbeat. Perfection. and this was before we had any food.



The executive chef of 20 Stories is Aiden Byrne who is a Michelin star chef who has created a menu to showcase the best of the North west and aims to source local ingredients within a 50 mile radius.

I can honestly say it will be one of the best meals you will eat because its just so fresh and tastes amazing. Every course went down perfectly, we hardly spoke during each course because we wanted to appreciate every mouthful.

The staff were so attentive and they made us feel so comfortable and at home that we didn't want to leave. They made our visit that little bit more perfect just when I thought it couldn't get any better. So I'm forever grateful to 20 Stories for inviting me to dine with you and create a memory that will last forever.

If you're ever in Manchester then you need to visit here for lunch or an evening meal - which I think would look even more idyllic with all the lights.
