A bottomless Chinese brunch is coming to Manchester for the bank holidays
Connect with your tribe at this unique and luxurious brunch
Manchester Chinese restaurant & bar, Tattu, have launched a brand new Sunday bottomless brunch for the upcoming bank holidays in May.
This glossy Chinese restaurant, located in Spinningfields, is bringing its new Sunday event to the city — a Tribe of Tattu Brunch.
This experience will feature every bank holiday Sunday in May, 12pm-4pm, making the perfect place to taste exquisite Eastern cuisine whilst being taken on an alluring sensory journey.
Inspired by the electrifying spirit of Burning Man and the techno jungles of Tulum, lose yourself in the mesmerising rhythms of tribal-house provided by Tattu’s resident DJs.
From the moment you step inside, you will enter a contemporary Eastern dining experience with opulent decor consisting of dark wood, intricately carved screens and ambient lighting.
Inside this stylish and sophisticated venue, geometric shapes pulsing across the walls will transport you to a world of connection and celebration, where music, entertainment and a free spirit are at the heart of the party.
While immersing yourself in the music you can sip away on Tattu’s Signature cocktails — including the iconic Skull Candy — and free-flowing Champagne alongside a three-course set menu featuring the restaurant’s hero dishes, combined with exciting new flavours and ingredients.
The menu comes in three waves and costs £47.50 per person for three courses, as well as three different drink packages to choose from (priced separately). Menu highlights will include the delicate Tuna Sashimi Flower, featuring Nori, sesame, and wasabi mayo.
As well as, the aromatic Red Snapper Tom Yum, infused with lemongrass and kaffir lime, and the Tattu favourite Wok-Fired Angry Bird, a delicious dish of chicken, roasted chilli peppers, and sesame honey soy will also feature.
Don’t miss your chance to round off the experience on a sweet note with the beautiful Garden of Life dessert, made with white chocolate, cherry, and candyfloss.
Drinks packages come separately and there are three to choose from. The free-flowing Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne Package is £50 per person — suitable for those who have something to celebrate or just love the soft pop of a cork and the sharp bite of flavour swimming in velvety bubbles.
The Signature Drinks Package costs £28.50 per person and consists of any four cocktails of choice — including the showstopper Skull Candy cocktails served up in skull glass vessels. For those who are looking for a less boozy option, the Non-Alcoholic Drinks Package will cost £20 per person.

A beautiful 1920s Spiegeltent — much like a traditional circus — will deck the roof of Depot Mayfield ready for the launch of this trailblazing show.
Inside, there’s a central circular stage with multiple seating options, including private booths for up to eight adults, each table coming with a bottle of prosecco.
The internationally acclaimed cabaret brings a full cast featuring the world’s finest circus and cabaret acts including, straps aerial performer Oscar Kaufman, creative powerhouse Tara Boom, world-renowned sword swallower Heather Holliday — joining the previously announced Lj Marles, Miranda Mezieas and Chastity Belt.

“La Clique is all about audiences having the most incredible time in the majestic Spiegeltent, being entertained by the world’s best circus, cabaret and comedy performers – your jaw will be on the floor one minute, and your stomach in pains from laughing the next.”
David Bates, Creative Director and Originating Producer of La Clique, said: “La Clique has been described as: ‘Over the Head, Under the Skin and Below the Belt…’ – it is the original circus cabaret that has taken the world by storm from Paris to New York, and everywhere in between.
“It’s sexy, it’s funny, it’s dangerous… Manchester, strap yourself in, it’s your turn now to feel the thrill and we couldn’t be more excited!”
Laura Percy, Development Director for Depot Mayfield, said: “Manchester’s cultural credentials are second to none and we are thrilled and excited to welcome the pioneering and eclectic brilliance of La Clique to Mayfield this summer….

A Greek, Caribbean and Argentinian barbecue is coming to Manchester
What better way to enjoy summer than with a huge barbecue!
A huge cookout featuring Greek, Caribbean and Argentinian barbecue is coming to Manchester next weekend.
Three Manchester pitmasters will cook-up a storm over live smoke and fire with dishes from around the world on the lush green at the Carlton Club, Whalley Range, on Saturday, June 17th.
Shindigger has announced the family-friendly day — which also welcomes dogs — running from 2-10pm and featuring food from Manchester’s Knights BBQ, Broke N Bone, and Taka Taka Mam.
The brewers are holding The Cookout to raise money for Trussell Trust with 100% of ticket revenue going to Food Banks.
Knights BBQ will serve up their succulent and tender smoked Caribbean jerk chicken, while Broke N Bone will grill their meat slowly, taking influence from the traditional Argentinian Asado way of cooking.
Foodies can expect a whole lamb at The Cookout, as well as beef steaks charred on the fire pit.
Taka Taka Mam will have a menu of chicken and lamb Greek gyros, as well as halloumi and mediterranean salads.
Shindigger will also be serving up the perfect ales to accompany the variety of chargrilled food — a heavenly summer combination.
There will be a dedicated bar of eight draught options to wet your whistle, including summer specials and Chin-Chiller — a brand-new ale making its debut at the event.
The easy drinking 3.4% pale ale, with refreshing zingy notes of mango and lychee, is designed for all-dayers.
Tickets for The Cookout cost a fiver, with all proceeds going towards local Trussell Trust food banks.
The Trussell Trust supports a nationwide network of food banks that supply food to people facing hardship, with numerous sites across Greater Manchester.
The money will go towards vital community work and support for families struggling with soaring food prices.
Grab yourself a ticket so you can get your chops around a gyros, with a Chin-Chiller in hand to wash it down – it’s all for a good cause. Tickets cost £5, plus an additional booking fee.

A 1980s Miami Beach rooftop cinema is opening in Manchester this summer
Backyard Cinema is back!
A rooftop cinema experience bringing Miami Beach vibes is coming to Manchester next month.
You can take a romantic date, or even a bunch of mates, to go and sit on the sandy rooftop of Depot Mayfield and watch some classic ’80s films under the breezy palms — don’t forget to wear your best Hawaiian shirt and a pair of aviators to complete the look.
Next month, take a trip back to 1980s Miami with neon lights and deco architecture, and get ready to enjoy a summer holiday in the city.
All ages are welcome to this family-friendly experience, which will host a variety of special events as well as spectacular sets.
Friday nights will feature Dirty Dancing beach parties with watermelon cocktails.
In addition there will be movie sing-a-longs, drag acts, and for those who are fans of all things pink, there will be screenings of the new Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.
There will also be lots of matinee screenings added for the school holidays so the kids don’t miss out. They’ll be able to have a whale of a time as they enjoy movies such as Super Mario Bros, Moana, The Little Mermaid and plenty more.
A variety of food and drink will be available, as well as alcoholic themed-cocktails, and guests are encouraged to come in fancy dress.
Join the waiting list for Backyard Cinema Miami Beach now. Open from July 5th, opening hours will be every Wednesday – Sunday from 12pm.
Given the name, it may not be a huge surprise to learn that Backyard Cinema started in its founder’s back garden with a group of friends enjoying a Blues Brothers sing and dance-along, with fancy dress, food, drink, the whole works.
Things took off from there and Backyard Cinema has now grown to be one of the leading alternative cinema experiences in the UK.
Dominic Davies, Founder and Creative Director said: “After the huge success of our Winter season we are super excited to bring our smash-hit Miami Beach to the roof of Depot Mayfield.
“We are going to take people back to a retro 80s Miami full of glitz and glamour and create the closest thing to a Summer Holiday in Mayfield.”
Open from July 5th, ticket prices start from £9.50 and you can book tickets HERE.
Children under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult aged 18+. Age certification for films apply regardless. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
