One of London’s most popular nightlife spots is due to open its first Manchester venue early next year.

The 600-capacity spot will join Albert’s Schloss, Revolución De Cuba and Dirty Martini in this bustling corner of the city centre, which has quickly become one of the liveliest late-night destinations in the region.
