Manchester has been eagerly awaiting the opening of opulent London-born restaurant Sexy Fish since the end of 2021.
Known for its amalgamation of art, music and high-end food, it has now confirmed that it will open its doors to the public this Autumn. Sexy Fish Manchester will be the third restaurant from the brand, following in the footsteps of its glitzy predecessors in London and Miami.
Guests can expect incredible sculpture pieces and art from the likes of Damien Hurst and Frank Gehry once it opens in the former Armani store on Deansgate. The ‘creatures from under the sea’ theme will see glass tanks of tropical fish, fish lamps and huge sculptures of sea creatures call the restaurant home, as well as a cascading waterfall that will be positioned behind the bar.
The centrepiece of the restaurant, the bar will also house the world’s largest collection of champagne featuring some rare vintage bottles, Japanese cocktails and a vast menu of gin. Known for also being a place to party, Sexy Fish will honour this with a weekly line-up of late-night international performers and DJs.
The food at Sexy Fish takes inspiration from across Asia and will be predominantly seafood focused, with dishes such as black cod and smoked tuna belly making the menu. Devised by chef Bjoern Weissgerber, who is described as a “true master of his art”, the Manchester restaurant will also have a range of dishes you’ll only be able to find in the North.
Richard Caring, chairman of Caprice Holdings, said: "Myself and the entire company are extremely excited to bring Sexy Fish to the vibrant and amazing city of Manchester this autumn.
"Manchester follows on from the successful restaurants in London and Miami.
"Caprice Holdings as a company has an affinity with the city, and we believe that Sexy Fish will be loved and enjoyed by the people of Manchester. I repeat, we are truly excited and look forward to being in one of the greatest cities in the UK, and the world."
