Meet Me On The Deck

The deck
Last night I was very flattered to be asked to attend the press launch of a new pop up bar in Manchester's Spinningfields.
Taking its inspiration from the 1950s Riviera, The Yacht Club is essentially a large decked area, sumptuous leather day beds, and a sleek bar - all under a huge white canopy. And oh so chic.

As it's Manchester you can image this 'month's worth of rain' we're due has well and truly arrived and watching it pour all yesterday afternoon I worried the evening might be a bit of a wash out.

How wrong could I be?

The place was packed; with folks from all over Manchester joining to have a good time, listen to some great disco beats and drink the best prosecco in town. (I'll admit I may have indulged a little too much in the bubbles...)

I was also concerned that with it being an outdoor bar I might be a little chilly but under the canopy are two seriously big heaters and they pump out warmth so well there needn't be a worry about a coat ruining your glamorous outfit underneath.

This place is seriously cool - situated in Hardman Square by the huge outdoor cinema screen. Is there a better way to watch every Thursday evening's screening? I can't think of any.

In the press pack were further drinks vouchers (oh, go on then) and a list of this summers events being held there. I'm particularly excited for the screening of Strictly Ballroom where guests are encouraged to dress accordingly - gold tassled dress at the ready!

In my press pack
As it was raining I didn't take my own shots so I must apologise as I just have the press ones. I will be back there very soon so will update with my own images to give you a closer look.

In the meantime why not meet me on the deck? I've my inner Bridget Bardot to channel at what I think may be my favourite bar of the summer...


  1. Looks great! I love to attend to events like this one.. since my boyfriend is a professional athlete we get a lot of invitations to a different - mostly sport events...and I am always happy to go there, to wear some nice clothes, meet interesting people, drink good champagne.. this is what our free time is all about, don't you think?
    I hope you enjoyed it!

    Wish you a lovely evening,
