The waterfront at New Islington marina’s about to get even more appealing..!

24 September 2021

Exciting times ahead as we welcome independent new businesses to New Islington Marina in Manchester, opening more of the waterfront up for people to sit and enjoy life. Here, our colleague Laura tells us more about the changes coming to the area.

Head to New Islington on a Saturday and you’re bound to see queues of people as they await their delicious baked treats from Pollen Bakery on the Marina. Pollen and its neighbours, including bar Cask and coffee house & bar House of Esk, set the tone for this independent and vibrant community. These cool businesses are nestled in amongst our House by Urban Splash houses and apartments, as well as an OFSTED-Outstanding primary school, Cotton Field Park, New Islington Metrolink stop and a health centre.

The team behind Flawd Wine at New Islington Marina

All of these additions have turned what was once a rundown and unloved area into one of the city centre’s most thriving places to be. And it’s about to get a whole lot more exciting too…

We have just confirmed all of the ground floor units at Mansion House – our apartment building fronting the Marina – have been let to independent occupiers, who will each bring a new offering to the waterfront community.

First to open is Flawd Wine, a natural wine bar and bottle shop, also selling British cheese, charcuterie and local produce. The owners describing it as a venue that will “focus on small-scale wine producers with a constantly changing wine list encouraging curiosity and enabling discovery”.

The aim they say is to make natural wine “approachable to anyone and everyone” in their space that’s perfect for sharing bottles with friends.

Pippa Middlehurst of Pippy Eats

Next up, cult-fave supperclub host, renowned food writer and author Pippy Eats, whose founder Pippa will launch a new cookery school and community event space on the Marina she says will be “the most beautiful, vibrant workshop space, dining space and Noodlehaus shop – all under one roof in Manchester’s most exciting new neighbourhood”. I couldn’t agree more!

Other new businesses coming soon include Mezze – a Cypriot kitchen and bar– and beauty salon Blush. More to come on these two soon!

So, if you’re in the local area head over to the new and OG venues to say hello. And visit our show home around the corner too!
