    Stylematters are proud to have been involved in the recent refurbishment of The Terrace at The Restaurant Bar & Grill in Manchester, one of the City’s most famous dining out venues. Stylematters designed and provided all the lounge seating and cushions for the outside areas working with IRC Operations Director, Danny Fox. The south facing, first floor terrace, has added an additional 80 seats to the restaurant and even has its own champagne bar. Combining luxury with the ultimate in simplicity, the space is a strikingly geometric interpretation of the outdoor lounge trend. Lush seating, top of the line heat lamps, bespoke lighting and fragrant jasmine climbing plants line the length of the terrace, creating an intimate space with the feel of a chic city garden. With automatic retractable awnings guests will enjoy the terrace all year round. Open daily for coffee from 11am it provides the ultimate in all day and every day dining.

    Designed for dining all year round, rain or shine, the terrace has been created by the leading British designer Robert Angell. Before establishing his own design practice, Angell worked alongside David Collins on many of London’s most prestigious restaurants, bars and hotels, including the Wolseley and Nobu. Angell was also responsible for the design of the newly created Cicchetti Bar & Late Lounge at Piccolino in Mayfair, London, which opened in April 2012 as Individual Restaurants’ most recent project.

    Steven Walker, boss of Individual Restaurants said “After visiting the best roof terraces at some of the coolest restaurants and hotels in major cities around the world, we are excited about bringing a taste of them to Manchester.”

    Laura Bamber, General Manager at The Restaurant Bar & Grill in Manchester commented “The Terrace is an amazing addition to the restaurant, guests are just loving it. It is proving to be the hottest seat in town.”

    The first floor dining area has also been refreshed whilst maintaining its timeless design.

    September will see the launch of brunch at The Terrace as well as the refurbishment of the ground floor bar and restaurant to follow in late 2012. The Sky Bar & Grill is scheduled to open in spring 2013 subject to planning.

    As a taster of things to come, The Sky Bar & Grill will boast a wood burning oven, charcoal grill, an amazing bar with a mix of restaurant and lounge seating all under a retractable awning for year round use. It will be the perfect oasis for great food, cocktails and cool beach house music, right in the heart of Manchester.
