DON’T know about you but after a shopping expedition to the Trafford Centre we’re in need of an uplifting glass of bubbly. So ‘grazie mille’ to San Carlo for launching a new standalone champagne bar inside Selfridges this summer.
The San Carlo Champagne Bar will be located in the newly refurbished accessories hall on the Centre’s lower level. The all day venue will serve an expertly curated champagne, prosecco, wine and cocktail list, with more than ten choices of champagne and prosecco served by the glass or bottle, alongside a menu of charcuterie and shellfish plates.
Look out for the sculptural ‘cloud’ chandelier that floats over the bar, inspired by the warm effervescence of bubbling champagne and the heritage of Italian Murano glass chandeliers. 20ft wide it will glitter and glow above the marble bar. It is made from 1000 individual cast glass discs, each one hand made in the Veneto region of Italy.
The champagne bar will be the sixth Selfridges San Carlo Group venue and comes following the success of the most recent opening of Alto by San Carlo on the rooftop of Selfridges in London a year ago.
The family-owned Italian chain has 20 individually designed venues in Manchester, Birmingham Cheshire, Liverpool, Leeds, Roundhay, Bristol, Leicester and London and further afield diners enjoy San Carlo restaurants in Qatar, Riyadh, Bahrain and Bangkok.
