Bull & Bear at The Stock Exchange, Manchester

This basement wine cellar was one of our favorite builds of 2019. To be able to work alongside Tom Kerridge and Gary Neville at the fabulous Bull & Bear within The Stock Exchange Hotel in Manchester was a real honor. Working in tandem with other trades during the final weeks of the renovation of the former Stock Exchange building, we created a dual purpose space within the hotel’s basement function area. There is a larger area which houses the majority of the hotel’s wine collection but also with the ability to hold up to 12 people for an intimate dinner or meeting, and also a separate fine wine room holding the long term storage, high value products.

We feel that we have created a real talking point as there really isn’t anything like this space in Manchester and it reinforces the focus on wine that the Bull & Bear have. Please do see our recent interview with Olivier Espersen, the Head Sommelier for Tom Kerridge’s restaurants Kerridges Bar & Grill in London, and the Bull & Bear itself here.
