As for food, there’s The Dakota Grill, a vibrant neighbourhood brasserie, complete with waterside views. This offers a classically-inspired menu, rich with seasonal ingredients and flavour.

The cocktail bar provides signature classics alongside bespoke in-house creations, as well as a carefully curated wine list. And if you’re one of the few remaining smokers in the UK, there’s The Cigar Garden – a purpose-built cigar terrace, which we’re told is “designed to bring a touch of old-school Mayfair to Manchester”. Don’t fancy anything too London? Outside, there’s a waterside terrace for al fresco drinking and dining.
