Albert’s Schloss co-founders, Adelaide Winter, Joel Wilkinson and Daniel Mullen, have submitted a licence application for a new café, bar, restaurant and event space to be part of the major “40 Swan Street” development in New Cross.
Swan Street Firehouse will be constructed inside an old MOT station on the edge of the city’s Northern Quarter, close to food hall Mackie Mayor and gig venue Band on the Wall.
The Swan Street venue will be part of the large “40 Swan Street” housing development led by Capital and Centric and the Kamani Property Group.
Adelaide Winter, creative director of Swan Street Firehouse, said: “We have been searching for the perfect site for ages and we couldn’t believe what a find the Capital and Centric site is.
“It has so much potential and we are really excited to be opening a brand new venue in the Swan Street neighbourhood.”
She added: “The flexible business model we are working with Capital and Centric on has meant that we can progress together, despite these uncertain times, creating jobs and opportunities in the city centre.”
The team behind the new venture already run several venues across the city, including Thomas Street bar Trof, The Deaf Institute and Mission Mars’ Albert’s Schloss.
Of the restaurateur team, Capital and Centric’s Tim Heatley said: “Their track record is phenomenal and they’re always going all over the world checking out new places and new things, pushing Manchester forwards and pushing boundaries – and they’re sufficiently bonkers to try out new stuff.”
