Recently awarded “Best Vintage Venue 2013” at the Manchester Vintage Awards,the team at Sugar Junction aren’t resting on their laurels and are instead adding to the amazing offering at this very special venue in the Northern Quarter.
Sugar Junction is a place to relax, unwind, catch up with great friends and watch the world go by. A place where they take as much pride in using the best ingredients from Manchester’s finest suppliers as they do in creating just the right ambience for your visit. Their freshly baked bread is from Robinson’s bakery, their meat from Frost Butchers in Chorlton, their vegetables from one of the oldest grocers around dating back to the 1920′s and their tea is specifically blended for them and them alone.
By day they offer a ridiculously indulgent breakfast menu specialising in all things eggs & bacon, with some really rather good pancakes thrown in there too. If Afternoon Tea is your bag then this is the place for you as they serve a delicious cake stand of treats from noon until 6pm, supported by some of Manchester’s finest fruit scones and macaroons.
So then we come to Sugar Junction by night, which is much more than just an extension of their daytime offering, but still served up in the same magical environment. At night it is all about Cocktails & Cakes, where they sculpt beautiful vintage cocktails paired with appropriate puddings in a home from home setting, with “orgasmic” (going a bit Almost Famous there!!) cakes to match. The cocktails themselves have a story to tell; designed by those doyens of drink mixing, The Liquorists, each has its own unique twist on a classic, almost all of them making use of Sugar Junction’s own teas. They are then all served in vintage glassware presented on a platter with an appropriately paired treat, all delivered to you while you sit at your table.
As well as the cocktails there is a full range of teas, coffees, those all important cakes, milkshakes and boozy milkshakes, indulgent “addictive jellies” and a range of spirits and more. There’s so much on offer in fact that the menu is too big to show here, but you can get an idea if you give it a click.
This cocktail experience really is unique, perfect for those looking for something different, more comfortable, less noisy and generally more sophisticated. Cocktails & Cake is available from Tuesday to Saturday until Midnight and bookings can be made for both the day and the evening sessions with Cocktails & Cake served from 7pm.
