When it opened in October 2009 Black Dog Ballroom caused quite a stir….and continues to do so to this day and remains as popular as ever and has spawned a number of offshoots including Black Dog Ballroom NWS and Dog Bowl. A slice of NYC’s secret downtown speakeasy style right here in the Northern Quarter, Black Dog Ballroom offers gourmet burgers and pizzas, draught beers, cocktails, pool tables and a secret room daily from Midday to 4am with food available until 1am alongside a programme of musical delights from the likes of DJ Da Funk, Stuart Richards and lots more.
In the New York style diner all food is served from 12pm until late, daily. Using local produce the menu is the invention of Anthony Fielden of the TNQ Restaurant & Bar and has been designed to capture the flavours and textures of New York. Choose from the brunch menu, fresh salads, hearty flame-grilled burgers, homemade gourmet pizzas, sides including their world famous onion rings and indulgent desserts. Customers can reserve booths using their online booking system for parties between 2 and 6 people or if you are a party of 7 or more please contact their bookings team. There’s no charge for your booking but they do stop taking reservations at 9pm.
The bar offers the perfect venue for laid back brunches, impromptu cocktail hours and a bustling late night disco rendezvous with an extensive drink and cocktail list which has been created by their best bartenders and mixologists. Cool, charming, and charismatic, as you’d expect, it’s full of sophisticated and invigorating flavours, guaranteed to excite your palate. Whether you’re out for the night or fancy a relaxed few after work this menu has something to suit even the pickiest of palates.
