A new Australian-themed bar and restaurant is opening in Spinningfields in May.
Australasia is a new venue from Tim Bacon, managing director of the Living Ventures Group, who co-owns The Alchemist bar at Spinningfields with Jeremy Roberts.
The new bar and restaurant, run by Australian chef Paul Greening, will occupy 7,000 sq ft on Spinningfields Square, Deansgate, in Manchester city centre.
The venue, which features a glass entrance, has a 3am licence on Friday and Saturday and includes live DJs.
Australian-born Bacon said: "I'm aiming at a bit of cool, downtown Sydney, down under in Manchester."
