FIRST LOOK: Black Dog's New XOLO Bar

Exclusive images reveal extent of 'tequila den' refit off Oxford Road

FIRST LOOK: Black Dog's New XOLO Bar

THIS WEEK we revealed that the Black Dog Ballroom group were set to open a new underground tequila bar, XOLO, at the Black Dog venue on New Wakefield Street.

The group are behind such Manchester operations as Black Dog Ballroom, DogBowl, Cane & Grain and Liars Club.

The new space capitalizes on growing intrigue in the Mexican 'Day of the Dead' holiday and the Sugar Skull tradition.

The news gathered a great deal of interest - so we thought you'd probably like to point your looking balls at these.

Confidential has just got hold of an exclusive set of shots (below) that reveal the extent of the refurb, transforming the tired Underdog club into a new late night 'tequila den' with room for 400 bodies.

The new space capitalizes on growing intrigue in the Mexican 'Day of the Dead' holiday and the Sugar Skull tradition - a national celebration of the dead in which tequila and mezcal play a huge part.

XOLO will be a mezcal-heavy bar, with a robust selection of tequilas, margaritas, tropical fruits and dizzying sharers like the Zombita or the Tijuana Sangria - tequila mixed with red wine. Taxi...

Xolo will be open Thursday 8pm til late, Friday 5pm til late and Saturday 8pm til late.
