Grand Pacific

Pan Asian

Grand Pacific is the work of Living Ventures and it easily outshines its sibling venues in terms of pure glamour. Not in a big chandeliers, glass and chrome Spinningfields way, but with a decadent blend of colonial Raffles-style grandeur and some of the best of the city’s Victorian architecture. Grand Pacific is located in the former Reform Club, the place for Manchester’s Liberal movers and shakers. Now it’s more about cocktail shakers than progressive policies.

Let’s be honest, the food at Grand Pacific is not very important. It’s a very impressive place – great for a date and it’s the sort of place you come to see and be seen. As you’d expect the cocktails are of a very high calibre. The food is ok. It’s an inoffensive blend of Pan-Asian flavours, beautifully presented but more politely bland than authentically fiery. Dishes like a chirashi bowl of scattered sushi, a chicken satay salad or a loin of roasted cod with curry-spiced lentils are pleasant enough but they are not the main event.

But go, order a cocktail and some tempura whatnots and soak up the majesty of your surroundings. There is nowhere in Manchester quite like it.
