The venue has been described as a “welcoming, relaxed space” with a “modern” approach to flavour, and the food and drink menus at Wilderness Bar and Kitchen are also informed by “seasonality and the best available produce”.
Heading up the bar is Adam Day who has developed a natural menu, pairing house made ingredients, seasonal produce and quality spirits. Wilderness Bar and Kitchen will also offer low ABV cocktails, natural wines and craft beers.
The basement Innovation Room will be a creative space for both the chefs and the bartenders to “explore new flavours”. The table is set within the working kitchen and can also be booked out for private dining, where guests can experience a tasting menu served by the head chef.
The venue said: “Mof Gimmers, resident record buyer at sister site Wilderness Record Store, Withington, will be curating the music offering; booking his favourite DJs and playing new releases, classics and vinyl reissues.
“This will be the second site (after Wilderness Record Store) operated by the award winning team of Dan Morris – ex Cottonopolis and Trof Group, Mat Lake and Bart Murphy both of Junkyard Golf Club & Bunny Jacksons and Lyndon Higginson from Liars Group, Junkyard & Bunny Jacksons. Higginson has designed and curated the artwork throughout the space.”
