Wilderness has taken over the former Folk & Soul venue on Thomas Street with the aim to create a completely new and exciting 2-floor bar and restaurant in the central Northern Quarter site.
The team behind wilderness bar + kitchen are Dan Morris, former Group Manager of Trof and Ops. Director for Cottonopolis, directors Bart Murphy and Mat Lake of Junkyard Golf Club and Lyndon Higginson, Director for Liars Group and Junkyard Golf Club
The design for the new project will be led by Lyndon Higginson – the creative force behind the Liars Group and will tie in with the sister site wilderness record store just off Withington High Street which opened on Record Store, 13th April 2019.
Wilderness record store stocks a broad range of vinyl and incorporates a cafe serving freshly made toasties, cakes and pastries alongside a selection of interesting beers and wines as well as its own wilderness gin and tonics.
From June 2019 the record store will double in size and launch an events programme that will include acoustic sets, Q&A’s with artists and DJ’s, film screening and creative workshops.
