In Northern Quarter, Mackie Mayor is a trendy canteen where different styles of street food are being prepared, using local and seasonal products. Under a glass ceiling and gigantic Victorian archways, seats at the long, shared tables fill up quite fast, whether in hall or upstairs. All around the atrium, various stands give you a choice to try their own specialities.
The Grade II location (British listing of particularly important buildings of more than special interest) used to house a large covered market in the 19th century. Today, everybody gathers to enjoy original pizzas, Taiwanese baos (small stuffed and steamed brioches), traditional fish & chips, or weekend brunches… Mancunians love to come together and share moments of pure friendliness. Mackie Mayor is particularly lively after work hours, when colleagues set the world to rights, a glass in hand – yet in moderation. Wine bar or biergarten, which will it be?
