Responsible for creating one of the most popular venues in Ancoats with Ramona and The Firehouse, the same team are now taking on a brand new challenge.
They’ve now finally revealed a selection of teasers to get us all excited for a new venue that’s shaping up to be ‘Manchester’s biggest beer garden’. Branded with the rather industrial name, DieCast, the space is planned to be around 250,000 square foot and utilises the former warehouse and foundries space effectively by segmenting the outdoor space into different zones. Expect to see an open air BBQ kitchen, ‘NeoPan’ pizzeria and festival-style ‘House of Daiquiri’ and ‘Rum Town’ bars.
On top of the outdoor additions, the indoor space has a wide selection of plan in store as well including an in house bar (of course), a night market, kombucha brewery, restaurant and a huge festival stage.
DieCast Director and owner, Joel Wilkinson, had this to say “We’re taking all our learnings from Ramona and The Firehouse, but this time it’s on an industrial scale. It’s more than a venue. It’s an area within itself. A new creative neighbourhood for the city.”
While their Creative Director , Adelaide Winter, commented: “The Factory floor and Machine Works are already being used for creative events, filmmakers, musicians and event producers to use.This is the first part of establishing DieCast as a new creative resource for the city, but this summer we will finally open the garden to the public for the first time ”.
Located down the road from Piccadilly Station on Store Street and Ducie Street, it won't be too out of reach from anyone. Keep up to date with the progress on their socials here.
