Manchester Arndale’s new 1,300 sq ft Prosecco bar, FIZZ! by Frizzenti, is now open serving a range of still and sparkling wines on tap, along with a selection of cocktails.
FIZZ! seats over 60, and will offer Italian pastries, cakes and charcuterie alongside the beverage menu. The new bar will also be open for breakfast every day until 11am, and you can grab a coffee or tea served with a choice of fresh croissants for £2.95.
Special editions will be added to the menu monthly…such as their Pear and Rosemary Spritz, or seasonal Spiced Clementine Spritz in November.
Manchester Arndale has been undertaking an £11m transformation to provide shoppers with a new contemporary casual dining destination. Once completed, Halle Place will include nine restaurants that will offer ‘al fresco’ style dining on the mall. The space is crowned by a suspended piece of public art at the top of the double-height atrium.
Also opening soon in Halle Place is Manchester’s first Wolf Italian Street Food branch. Already established in London, Reading and Leeds, Wolf has become known for its piada, or ‘Italian burrito’.
Barburrito and Archie’s are also confirmed to open soon, and further opening dates and new names are expected to be announced in the new year.
