The Ivy Spinningfields is an exciting new addition to the Manchester gastronomic scene

Spread over four floors, The Ivy Spinningfields is thelargest restaurant to open in the UK in 2018 and it is comprised of a ground-floor brasserie, a private dining room, the first Ivy Asia on the second floor and a roof-top restaurant and bar. Planting throughout reflects the Ivy formula of relaxed sophistication while ensuring each floor retains its own sense of identity.

An eye-catching array of pots, urns and planters of various sizes makes a striking impact at the entrance. The brasserie interior gives the usual Ivy welcome with a verdant melange of internal trees and Palms, decorative pots on shelves and adorning the impressive central bar. The metal perimeter troughs are softened with perennials interplanted with evergreen which give privacy and colour throughout the year.

The Ivy Asia restaurant and bar is a sumptuous space with a green semi-precious stone floor, a stunning gilt mirrored bar, gold gilt ceiling and luxurious Asian fabrics. The planting complements the opulent décor with rich vegetation such as Yuccas, Bonsai trees and Birds of Paradise. Hardy sub-shrubs and perennials in window boxes add colour and unity to the main theme. The Japanese styling is mirrored in the adjacent private dining room with a lush, green backdrop.

The Roof Garden is a luxuriant oasis of greenery, colourful furnishings, cosy fires, small and large statement pots and urns. With a retractable roof, this is a perfect haven for relaxing in whatever the weather. Large canopied trees provide dappled shade when the awnings are retracted and evergreens with seasonal planting provide year-round colour and interest. It is a delightful spot for al fresco dining and romantic by night when it is beautifully lit.

Internally, artificial plants and climbers have been used to soften roof areas and trellising to enrich the feeling of an actual garden. A mix of Ferns, succulents, herbs and trailing plants veil the trellising whilst Ivy and Clematis ensure a depth to the ceilings.
