The Anthologist arrives in Manchester's St. Peter's Square

July 10, 2018

Manchester is no stranger to new bars these days with, what seems, like a new bar opening almost weekly!

However, this time it's not in the bustling Spinningfields or Peter Street/Deansgate crossover area but rather at One St Peter's Square! It's Drake & Morgan's latest addition to Manchester, The Anthologist.

You may be familiar already with it's big sister from across the city, The Refinery, and you'll soon see it does share many of the winning formulas that has made its big sister a popular drinking and eating spot.

What's different here is The Anthologist offers up a fusion menu from around the globe, 'pairing health with indulgence' according to its owners, giving them a particular focus on providing plenty of on-trend vegetarian and vegan options.

Maybe more importantly to some of you, there's an exquisitely prepared, botanical-inspired cocktail menu which even claims to be diet-friendly, as there are a collection of zero-proof concoctions scoring in at less than 50 calories.

On the food side, there are menus for breakfast, brunch, as well as all day dining, with a separate kids menu and a pre-order menu offering splatters and big sharing bowls and party packages.

They also have a range of 'pudding cocktails' as an alternative to dessert (which, we're afraid to say, definitely not under 50 calorties unfortunately) that are a must-try!

The Anthologist is also taking full advantage of the warm, Manchester weather with its superb alfresco dining terrace while the interior will sport a similar warm, cosy vibe to that of the Refinery.
