Freight Island


Freight Island

An inspiring new urban landscape carved from a long-forgotten freight depot.

Escape to Freight Island is an all-weather city centre retreat, bringing the people of Manchester together around good food, great bars and the best of Northern culture.

A huge main bar, craft beer tap room, neighbourhood cocktail bar and intimate wine bar are organised around a visionary food market. From open-fire cooking to fresh and healthy plates and tacos for the soul, our restaurants and pop-ups are connected by their commitment to the very highest quality, across cultures and cuisines.

We go seven days a week, with live music, unmissable DJ sets, comedy and film screenings. Highlights include the Wednesday residency from Manchester’s Comedy Store, weekly music at Thursdays and friends, and the family-friendly Sunday festival series, Better days.
