Since the Superstore closed it’s doors and the excellent Evelyn’s moved in, there has been a void to fill, specifically the basement area that used to hold the excellent booze selection at Superstore (which thankfully has moved across Great Ancoats and is now Ancoats General Store). Well, from 1st February that void is finally getting filled with the arrival of The Daisy, described as a “neighbourhood hang-out”, and inspired by the Pigalle district in Paris.

This new co-working space and lounge aism to provide “the perfect location to work remotely whilst enjoying a cup of Ozone coffee” by day, with cocktail creations and one of Manchester’s most “unique” wine lists curated by Newcomer’s Peter Honegger by night. Events are planned to take place throughout the year.

The interior of the space combines “relaxed styling with an industrial chic French presence, complemented by mid-century reclaimed furniture, mosaic monochrome tiles, and a pink Daisy neon sign; creating a casual eclectic environment“.

We are excited to be able to create this space in Manchester’s Northern Quarter following the reception of Evelyn’s a couple of years ago and continuing the family’s ties with hospitality since Mughli in 1991 and further still when the family used to own Jimmy’s night club in the city during the late 70’s.

London has many of these types of member venues and I think it will work really well here. Soho House recently pulled back on bringing a ‘House’ to Manchester and replaced it with a diner style operation, or so I’ve heard. One day I would love to work on that style of hotel, bar and restaurant operation. The Smithfield Buildings are iconic and well-known in Manchester. Using the industrial features in the basement, we worked to enhance it with a natural ‘upgrade’ rather than a forced one. The intimate two floors will hopefully make you forget about the time, and spend the entire day there.” ~ Sax Arshad – Founder of The Daisy

The Daisy will host an open month following the launch on the 1st February. All visitors are welcome to check out the new venue, however The Daisy membership benefits will only be available to paying members during the open month.

The Daisy will be opened daily from Monday to Friday – 9:00am to 18:00pm as a co-working space, and evening’s from Wednesday to Saturday – 18:00pm until late as a cocktail and wine bar.
