New wine bar and tasting store Bakerie is set to open on Lever Street in the Northern Quarter, Manchester city centre.
Manchester City Council has granted planning permission and license agreements to RWB Leisure to open Bakerie in 3,000 sq ft on the ground floor at 45 Lever Street and 2,000 sq ft on the ground floor of the Hive. Both buildings are owned by Argent.
Bakerie will open in two phases at 45 Lever Street first and then its tasting store at Unit 1 at the Hive.
Bakerie has signed a 10 year lease at the Hive, while details of the rental agreement at 45 Lever Street and cost of rent at both buildings was not disclosed.
David Cook, RWB Leisure, said: "The two units are perfect for Bakerie, a brand new offer for the Northern Quarter. We'll be stocking a wide range of quality wines, baking our own bread on site and everything you can buy in the wine bar, you'll be able to buy in the tasting store. We're looking forward to opening the wine bar in the autumn and the tasting store in winter."
Tenants at the 80,000 sq ft Hive building include the Arts Council.
