New California concept Firefly set to launch at Foodwell

4 October 2019

FOODWELL has traded off its LA-inspired food and wellness offering. It certainly looks the part. Now it’s taking that West Coast vibe to the next level with a late night destination experience called Firefly.

Announcing itself as ‘Cali inspired, locally sourced’, the new dining menu at the New Bailey venue will be made up of ‘Californian tapas’ – small plates from around the world which will pay homage to the state’s richly diverse culture.

The drinks menu will mirror this source of inspiration, featuring cocktails such as ‘City of Angels’ and ‘Cali Cali’; Kombucha-infused drinks; a West Coast wine cellar; and an extensive tequila selection. 

Foodwell owner Christian Coates (above) told us: “We’re so excited to introduce Manchester to Firefly. The terrace has proved incredibly popular, and we’ve had constant demand from our customers to offer a late-night experience building upon the wellness aspect of Foodwell during the day.

“We want to offer a balanced approach to wellness, and to encourage people to nourish their bodies and souls during the day – but to feel free and let their hair down at night.”

The venue will roll out Firefly from Friday October 11, where the space will cosmetically transform the current eaterie at 6pm every night to create a more music-led focus with a raised DJ booth and the introduction of bottle and table service.

It’s one more string to Foodwell’s bow. Already it comprises a 130-cover restaurant, a heated terrace, and a yoga studio – which features a double-height projector screen which can enable guests to practice immersive beachside yoga.
