About Us , Velvet Central

Velvet Central

A new Velvet, in the centre of Manchester

Velvet Central is the new bar and restaurant from the team behind the original Velvet on Canal Street, Manchester.

From our grade II listed building on Mount Street behind Central Library, we bring you al-fresco dining and drinking in the sun, a re-styled restaurant reflecting all things Velvet, and private hire spaces for parties and group dining.

Velvet food

Join us for after-work drinks, sharing platters, lunch or dinner. Our menu features favourites from Velvet Canal Street alongside a small plates menu and a build-your-own sharing platter selection. For a fast weekday lunch to eat in or takeaway, choose from our daily changing selection of tarts, cold cuts and salads.

Velvet style

Outside it's views of grand architecture and sunshine on our south-facing terrace. Inside it's pure opulence with drapes, murals and mirrors. Quirky, playful and pretension-free – Velvet Central is for everyone who appreciates a friendly atmosphere with their cocktails and wine.

Velvet parties

Planning a party or event? Climb our iron spiral staircase to our rococo-styled balcony lounge - it's perfect for private gatherings of up to 30 people. Or hire our subterranean restaurant with its own bar for bigger parties of up to 100 people.
