Vermilion Hall – spectacular events space launches

17 February 2017 by Neil Sowerby

IN its decade of existence Vermilion Restaurant has been synonymous with spectacular. Combining interior design created by Miguel Cancino Martins of Buddah Bar fame with an equally lavish Thai/Indian cuisine based upon the seafood imported by owners Seamark, it has brought a peacock glamour to East Manchester.

Girls Aloud chose to host their break-up party in its cutting edge cocktail bar Cinnabar and it has been a backdrop for fashion, art and music happenings. Above all it has always been a celebration venue.

Now owners Seamark have spent an estimated £3 million on transforming a ground floor warehouse into The Vermiilon Hall, an events space to accommodate the demand for large scale celebrations, especially weddings. Both the 800-capacity Grand Suite and the smaller, 200-capacity Alan Turing Suite had already attracted a raft of bookings even before this week’s official opening by the Lord Mayor of Manchester, Carl Austin-Behan. 

It is not just Jennie Hill’s designs that have the Wow! factor. No expense has been spared on the details – the kitchen specifics are similar to Buckingham Palace’s, the astonishing lighting is from the team who handle London’s Albert Hall, the sound and video system is state-of-the-art. 

ToM, though, was particularly taken with the beauty of the flower arrangements, shimmering chandeliers and historic artefacts collected by Seamark owner Iqbal Ahmed from across the world. A beautiful bar lounge and en-suite bridal room complete the package.

Of course such splendour doesn’t come cheap; dry hire of the full events space starts at £9,500.
