Hire this spectacular space for an exclusive lunch or dinner

James Martin Manchester is one very special restaurant and it is available to hire privately for your very special occasion.

Sensational seasonal food and exceptional service in an elegant urban-chic setting guarantee that your guests will have the time of their lives.

James Martin Manchester serves modern British fare at its very best. Imaginative menus embrace meat-eaters, vegetarians and vegans, using the finest local produce to deliver on the promise of the name behind this award-winning restaurant.

Set on its own mezzanine at Manchester235 Casino and flooded with natural light, this striking restaurant can comfortably seat up to 168 guests for a dinner to impress. 


This space is also perfect for a cool cocktail party for up to 200 and offers cabaret and theatre set-up options too.

There’s even a baby grand piano for sophisticated live entertainment while people eat and chat beneath the vaulted brick ceilings of the historic Great Northern Warehouse. Clever design spotlights many of the dramatic building’s original features and offsets the industrial elements, such as steel girders, with rich vintage textiles and works of art.

Because James Martin Manchester is part of a casino complex, choosing this venue for your event offers your guests the prospect of a no-curfew after-party on the doorstep. Our main bar in the electrifying Vega Lounge is open until 6am.

Our signature restaurant is a luxurious and memorable choice for private celebrations from wedding receptions to birthday parties, and for corporate events that want to be a cut above.
