    Following the success of Red’s True BBQ Leeds in 2012, Red’s again approached Dawnvale with their next project; the conversion of a grade two listed building in Albert Square Manchester, formerly Livebait Restaurant.Working in partnership with leading design practice Blacksheep, Dawnvale were able to completely metamorphose the premises while working within the confines of a listed building.

    The 12 week design and build project, featuring an urban reclaimed furniture scheme such as pallet style fixed seating, reclaimed tables, bespoke metal-work and crocodile cages, distressed metal flooring, decorative steel storage display, bespoke wrought iron and distressed timber wall panelling, semi-circular bar, front theatre kitchen equipped with wood burning grill, smokers and counters all work collectively to enhance the historic evangelical theme that runs throughout both sites.

    A Red’s spokesman commented, “Together we managed to bottle the atmosphere and feeling of our first site in Leeds and faithfully re-create it, by injecting more punch and humour”.
