Situated on the first floor and accessed both from the store and a dedicated entrance on Corporation Street, My Pizza & Prosecco Bar by Gino D’Acampo seats over 200 people.
The restaurant has been designed on a grand scale with high ceilings and a glass façade with a panoramic view of Cathedral Gardens and some of Manchester’s most iconic buildings.
At its heart is an open kitchen featuring two handmade, copper wood-fired Italian pizza ovens and a cold counter including an ice cream bar. Taking centre stage is a 23-metre island prosecco bar.
The restaurant has Gino’s trade mark washed woods, Carrara marble and striking green leather while the clever use of space has been designed to allow a very casual, all day, every day drinking and dining experience.
Free powerful WIFI, complimentary work stations and games room – all part of Gino’s vision of providing shoppers with more than just a dining experience but a lifestyle.
“I’m super excited to be opening My Pizza and Prosecco Bar in Manchester and start my new partnership with Next. What more can someone want than great pizza, great prosecco and a bit of retail therapy,” said D’Acampo.
The restaurant in Next is close to his venue under the My Restaurant brand in Manchester’s Corn Exchange which opened nearly two years ago.
