Restaurants and bars in Manchester’s Corn Exchange are set to reopen this weekend, allowing visitors to dine, relax and socialise. Starting to trade from this Saturday 4th July, Banyan, Doner Haus, and family-run Italian Salvi’s will be the first spots to open their doors’. Mowgli and Cosy Club will be next to reopen, on the 6th and 8th July.
The building’s popular aparthotel, Roomzzz, will also reopen to guests on the 4th July. Other venues within Corn Exchange, such as Zizzi and Vapiano, are preparing to reopen mid-July with dates to be confirmed.
The team behind the destination have been working tirelessly to implement new safety measures ahead of reopening, such as social distancing and a one-way system to ensure guests can socialise safely.
Other differences visitors may notice include a change to entrances and exits, plus a reduced number of people being able to enter venues at one time. Hand sanitising points have been installed and there will be a noticeable increase in cleaning staff on site.
Each individual brand will introduce specific procedures too, such as asking guests to pre-book and reducing restaurant capacity to ensure government guidelines are met.
Liam Mooney, General Manager at Corn Exchange Manchester, commented: “We’re excited to safely once again welcome visitors to our mouth-watering mix of brands, which will begin to reopen from this weekend.
“The teams onsite have worked hard to introduce measures to keep colleagues and guests alike safe while at work or play and we’re all looking forward to being a key destination for those visiting Manchester city centre.”
