Manchester’s smallest wine bar opens in AncoatsSophie Rahnema 6 months ago
Around the back of Ancoats, past the domineering PLT offices, a small wine shop lives
Le Social Wine has been on the scene for a while. You might have caught its pop up at the KAMPUS bungalow last summer, you may have also even seen its wines for sale in one of the ubiquitous General Stores that seem to be multiplying around Greater Manchester.
You might then be surprised to learn that this distinctly French operation actually all started in a tiny shipping container in Pollard Yard.
Far from a simple wine shop, Le Social selects its products based on their social credentials, building its foundations on hospitality, empathy, generosity and sustainability.
Now opening its doors to fans of casual, continental wining and dining, Le Social will open as a tiny wine bar every Saturday between 2pm and 10pm.
Joining a carefully curated line-up of wine, find distinguished aperitifs like vermut (vermouth) and soda alongside a seriously sophisticated menu of continental snacks.
Mercian peppers and artichokes, Catalan sardines in olive oil, duck rillettes and grilled octopus will be served alongside cheese and Companio Bakery sourdough bread.
With very limited seating (it is in a shipping container after all), booking via Le Social’s website is essential.
