Coming soon to the Central Bay site in Salford, 11 Central is a new bar and microbrewery launched by local brewing favourites Seven Bro7hers. It’s named ‘11 Central’ after the team’s extended family – which includes a whopping seven brothers (naturally) and four sisters. Opening in summer, visitors can expect a mix of drink, food, live music, bar games and waterside views from the 2,000-square-foot terrace.
It builds upon the popular Seven Bro7hers collection of bars, which have become a well-known and loved part of the Salford and Manchester social scene. This new site will ramp up the entertainment, with more in the way of pool and shuffle tables and a wider beer offering to cater for all tastes, plus gin-making classes available to book this summer.
Inspired by their father’s home brewing, 11 Central will serve authentic artisan beer, brewed just a few miles away, near where they grew up and where some of the family still lives. With a state-of-the-art microbrewery on site, customers can enjoy limited edition beers made just metres away from the bar – available exclusively at Central Bay.
Extending the menu to gin lovers, the Sisters Distillery will have a key role behind the bar with its full range of award-winning flavoured gins available, plus an assortment of artisan tonics to pair with.
The Sisters Distillery will also host distilling sessions at 11 Central for gin enthusiasts who want to learn the craft of making unique gins from the experts themselves. A fine destination for those looking for an exciting date night or groups of friends looking for a juniper berry-infused activity, the classes will be available to book in the coming months.
11 Central will also run events in partnership with Central Bay, including family-friendly daytime activities during the school holidays, live music nights, plus food within the bar area.
Central Bay itself is an impressive space, all geared up to host 25,000 square feet of exciting culinary experiences, making it one of the biggest independent food and drink operations in the North and a first for Salford. It will house four new independent restaurants, 20 kitchens, pop-up events, indie markets, live music performances and recreation space for children, with more announcements set to be made in the coming months.
