Manchester Hall – The Mason’s Restaurant/BarBack to Case Studies
Masons Restaurant Bar occupies part of the ground floor of the newly-revamped and renamed Manchester Hall on Bridge Street, on the edge of Spinningfields.
The building was opened by the Freemasons in 1929, and its history is referenced throughout the restaurant’s stylish green art-deco design scheme.
Original features have been preserved or repurposed, such as the reception desk built out of an old organ previously stationed in a lodge room upstairs, and a grand set of oak windows which were taken from the front of the building and have been incorporated into the restaurant’s interior.
Other touches include a private dining booth with a chequerboard tabletop emblazoned with the letter G, which references the traditional black-and-white mosaic pavement that decorates the floor of many Masonic lodges.
A lighting fixture featuring an all-seeing eye design – an important symbol in Freemasonry – hangs above it, while a mural of forget-me-nots – another powerful emblem of the organisation is placed above another booth opposite.
The restaurant has been opened by the owners of Manchester Hall themselves and will operate as an independent entity to the rest of the building, which will also include an events venue and two more restaurants run by outside operators, Spanish tapas bar Pintura and pan-Asian bar and restaurant Fable.
We supplied our rich, cobalt blue Crescendo wallcovering which covers all of the walls in the restaurant. This deeply textured design features a traditional panelled herringbone pattern. Click here to order samples for next day delivery.
We also digitally printed a bespoke wallcovering for the Goulburn Suite.Back to Case Studies
