The Jane Eyre opens its doors in April 2018. Owned and operated by two brothers, this neighbourhood bar will have an open, community focused feel. For the name and the ethos, Jonny and Joe took inspiration from their late mum, and over the past five years they’ve been searching for the right location to get the project moving.

They’ll be serving simple food and drinks made using high quality ingredients. The cocktail menu will lead the way, featuring a short list of classic punchy numbers created to let the spirit, liqueur or vermouth speak for itself. A range of keg and bottled beers will showcase local Manchester breweries. And the boys have always enjoyed continental ways of eating, so from the small kitchen they’ll be serving up a short interesting bar snack menu along with charcuterie and cheese plates, and some weekly specials.

Tunes will be provided by local DJs playing one deck vinyl sessions. And watch out for the extra special bloody mary menu every Sunday. Jonny, Joe and the Jane Eyre team are looking forward to joining the growing Ancoats community next year.
