We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Manchester’s biggest and friendliest street food venue – GRUB – to open Contact Bar and Kitchen!

The kitchen is now open with a full menu curated by Michael Anderson from Tikka Chance on Me. Featuring both an exciting evening menu including a range of Indian-inspired burgers and small plates such as Sticky Tamarind Wings, as well as a lunchtime menu featuring cold wraps, toasted sandwiches, loaded fries and more. The offering will be fiercely Northern but globally-inspired.


The bar will consist of a wide selection of beers from independent breweries such as Green Quarter’s Runaway Brewery, Manchester Union, Fierce Beer, and a unique range of cocktails created by GRUB’s in-house mixologists.
