The area around Piccadilly is rapidly evolving and becoming a proving ground for new independents popping up all around Phoenix. We’ve picked a couple of our favourite hidden gems below.
CHAPELTOWN PICTURE HOUSE.
Nestled in the lofts of neighbouring Crusader Mill is Chapeltown Picture House, an independent mini-cine from the brains behind GRUB. Their screenings range from cult classics to marmite opinion dividers, and even Bake Off. It’s not all popcorn and flicks though, Squawk Brewing Co’s taproom also shares the space for the perfect pre/post-film pint.
Tip: CPH post all their listings on social and are available for private hire too.
Hidden away in the railway arches by Piccadilly Station, Track Brewery are a small globe-trotting team of Mancunian beer aficionados that revel in both the science and art of brewing. Happy to chat your ear off on how a few ingredients can create an almost limitless collection of flavours, they also find time to make a few beers.
Tip: follow them on social media and look out for their occasional “tap room tastings”, open to the public and a great way to sample their newest brews.
EXPLORE PICCADILLY EAST.
Piccadilly East is an emerging new area, minutes away from Ancoats, NQ and Piccadilly. We’ve already done a lot in this area, so take a look at what else is happening in and around the neighbourhood.
Ducie Street Warehouse: Our first ever hotel has come to life just minutes away from Phoenix. You probably won’t need a bed to stay in but you’ll want to visit Cultureplex – a new cultural hub run by Bistrotheque – this will become your new hangout spot, instantly.
Leonardo Piccadilly East Hotel: Our second hotel is already in the works and we’ve pushed the boundaries and made this really beautiful. We’ve partnered with international hotelier Leonardo to bring this to life, watch this space.
Crusader Mill: This 180 year old mill is coming back to life and will bring even more owner-occupiers to Piccadilly East community. P.S. it’s where Phoenix residents will also come to chill in the lush residents garden.
