Albert’s Schloss is a Bavarian-inspired fun palace of extraordinary dimensions and clever design. Behind the glistening tiles of the former Manchester and Salford Wesleyan Mission building, you’ll discover a vast bar, real fires, perfectly preserved original plaster, and a wall stuffed generously with flowers by floral artists’ Frog.
You’ll also find a stage, DJ booth and network of beer pipes and tanks serving unpasturised Pilsner Urquell to hordes of adoring punters.
The strapline for Albert’s Schloss – ‘Cook Haus and Bier Palace’ – is accurate. The menu is an indulgent delight that’s as popular on weekday lunchtimes as it is on Saturday nights and for Sunday brunches.
This isn’t somewhere that’s sticking to the classics; Albert’s Schloss is all about giving you what you really, really want which could be a ‘sausage fest’ of three house wurst, a ‘morning bun’ with cinnamon sugar and Oreo milkshakes, or schweinshaxe (crispy Bavarian pork knuckle, red cabbage, apple and horseradish gravy).
If beer is not your thing, drink house wines, high quality cocktails, or press the ‘push for Prosecco’ button on your table for weekday offers on fizz. Happy hours indeed.
