New Canalside Terrace Bar arrives on the edge of Village
New Canalside Terrace Bar arrives in Manchester
Roby 1844, a new canalside terrace bar and eatery opened last weekend.
Located underneath The Holiday Inn on Aytoun Street, Roby 1844’s name was inspired by the original Victorian Roby School building next door to the hotel. Situated on two levels along the canalside, Roby 1844 has a relaxed ambience, awash with festoon lighting, waterside seating, music and an outdoor bar.
Open daily from 12pm – 11pm, Roby 1844 will serve up a street food menu, including a selection of burgers, sandwiches, platters and a vegan menu, with dishes such as Vegan Dirty Fries, Corn Ribs and Pulled Jackfruit Baps.
The drinks menu includes a range of beers, spirits, wine and cocktails, with local suppliers 7 Brothers, Manchester Gin and Three Rivers Gin featuring on the menu.
Live music will be a feature of the bar in the summer months. The bar will also provide a stop for canal barges, with passengers able to moor and disembark for a drink in the sun.
Initially, no pre-bookings are required, with walk-ins welcome.
Steve Julian, Manager at The Holiday Inn, said; “We’ve got such a great space by the water and wanted to create a standalone destination, perfect for after work drinks, weekend socialising and get togethers. People are welcome to head down for a drink, a bite to eat or both – at the moment, no booking is necessary. It’s a great place to sit and watch the world go by, and enjoy spending time with people, especially after being apart for so long.”
Roby 1844 is now open and trading and is already proing popular with the LGBT+ community.
