The team behind the award-winning Kosmonaut bar in Manchester’s Northern Quarter venture will open their second site in the city’s Stevenson Square this summer.

PLY bar and restaurant, which will open this August, will see the redevelopment of a 5,500sq ft ground floor unit at 26 Stevenson Square to create ‘a bright creative multi-purpose venue’.

Director Joe Fearnhead said: “PLY is a fresh new concept, completely distinct from the current Northern Quarter offering with some show-stopping elements. It’s a flexible space, with defined areas designed to cater for drinkers, diners, coffee meetings and lazy afternoons.”
