After successfully launching Tea 42, the team behind the Mancunian food and drink brand are launching MCR 42 in the heart of Manchester’s Gay Village, creating 50 new jobs and occupying the space left empty by the old Mongolian Bar & Grill.
The two-floor venue, opening this Friday, features a fine dining restaurant upstairs and a fabulous lounge downstairs, which is perfect for post-dining cocktails and event hire.
MCR 42 will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and will also serve a range of cakes, snacks, cocktails, wine and hot drinks every day of the week.
Tea 42 and MCR 42 co-founder Will Hannah said: ‘MCR 42 is an extension of Tea 42. In that respect, what we’re retaining is an extremely high quality of delicious and creative dishes, coupled with a stunning backdrop that is still welcoming and relaxed. But we’re also putting a little twist on it. We will continue to offer a large gluten free and vegetarian menu.
‘We are absolutely thrilled to be moving into Manchester’s Gay Village – a cultural hub rich with entertainment, music and heritage. With that in mind, and staying true to that spirit, we’ve got a few surprises up our sleeves. This will include a full entertainment programme that we know our guests will love.
‘Manchester Pride is steadily approaching and we can’t think of a better time to launch MCR 42. We can’t wait to welcome village dwellers, friends and families to a space we’ve worked extremely hard to create. We love it and we know you will too.’
