Monaghans are delighted to have delivered Manchester’s most anticipated restaurant opening of the year as 20 Stories opens today. The stunning 15,000 ft² rooftop venue in the heart of Spinningfields, offers a glamorous restaurant, relaxed grill, lively bar and expansive rooftop terrace with unparalleled 360-degree views of the Manchester skyline.
As the highest restaurant in Manchester occupying the 19th floor of No.1 Spinningfields, led by Michelin-starred Executive Chef Aiden Byrne, and offering a service of up to 300 covers, it’s no surprise that The Caterer identified 20 Stories as Manchester’s most anticipated opening of 2018.
The restaurant will be operated by D&D London, the first to open in Manchester for the luxury hospitality group. Monaghans undertook Project Management and Quantity Surveying duties and were able to provide local expertise and support to D&D in London and Manchester with our London office undertaking the pre-contract phase and the Manchester office completing the delivery of the project on site.
The collaborative delivery between the offices included landlord negotiations, tender preparation and recommendation, onsite management and regular cost reporting. Working alongside an existing design team the overall project delivered included the ground floor entrance lobby, 2 commercial kitchens, the restaurant, grill and bar areas, the private dining room, and the external terrace.
