Manchester's newest rooftop bar Sora will open on 1st February 2024, specialising in Pan-Asian Tapas & Cocktails.

Sora introduces a dining concept that celebrates the rich tapestry of Asian flavours, where small plates take centre stage. The menu is thoughtfully curated and complemented by seasonal specials, showcasing a fresh fusion of flavours through its selection of sushi, Robatayaki and Pan-Asian style dishes to mix and match.

Alongside their evening menu, Sora will also offer lunch specials from £25 per person where guests can build their own bento box by choosing one dish from the Sushi, Robata and Crispy sections, served with a choice of sides and something deliciously refreshing to drink. Its mixologists will craft a repertoire of signature and classic cocktails, served in an elegant and sophisticated ambiance.

Signature cocktails include the Cherry Blossom Negroni, Chocolate & Chilli Old Fashioned and a Coconut Espresso Martini. Other speciality cocktails include Yuzu & Raspberry Collins made with Roku Japanese Gin, and Toki Mule made with Toki blended Japanese Whisky.

The bar will also serve an extensive wine and champagne list along with draught and bottled beers and a comprehensive sake selection. Scott Harper, COO of Malmaison and Hotel du Vin says: “Manchester has long been known for its diverse and thriving culinary scene, and we are thrilled to add Sora to the mix.”

Food & Beverage Director at Malmaison and Hotel du Vin, Craig Robson, adds: “With expertly curated menus, a fantastic range of cocktails, and inspiring views that takes in the historical beauty of Albert Square, Sora promises to be an unparalleled dining destination in the city." Seating 116 across its rooftop restaurant and intimate roof terrace overlooking Albert Square, Sora is perched atop Deansgate's newest lifestyle hotel - Malmaison Manchester Deansgate on Princess Street.
