At Zouk we know that you can’t rely on the weather. After 7 years in Manchester, we’ve learned that the weather can change in a flash so if you love the great outdoors and fancy a spot of al fresco dining you need a spot that caters for you, come rain or shine. The Zouk all weather terrace was designed with exactly these challenges in mind. After watching Wimbledon on a rainy afternoon our co-owner and Creative Director, Mudassar Amjad, practically jumped out of his seat.
‘That’s it!’ he said ‘We have to have one of those electric roofs! Then let the rain come if it wants to. We’ll be ready at the click of a button.’ Tired of Manchester’s notorious horizontal rain, Mudassar spent a lot of time pouring (pardon the pun) over plans to ensure the terrace really would be a cosy all weather space for our customers and that the dreaded rain could be kept at bay.
On the Zouk terrace you really can dine outside all year round. Our electric roof provides cover from unexpected showers in a second or allows you to take full advantage of the sun and soak up some Vitamin D when the opportunity arises.
Designed with luxury in mind, the terrace is a state of the art space and with an investment of £200,000 to kit it out it; it features bamboo cladding, exotic plants and palms, and charming sophisticated seating. Loose cushions and cosy blankets ensure comfort and warmth on cooler days and low level fixed planting troughs create private booths where you can relax with friends. Open every day the terrace is a flexible space where food is served and you can enjoy eating, drinking or relaxing with one of our authentic Egyptian shisha pipes.
The best reason to visit the terrace if you haven’t had chance yet is the buzz and vibe it offers customers and a welcome chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of Manchester. Owner Mudassar explains,
“I wanted a tranquil space for customers where they can really escape at the end of a long day but its not just the look and comfort that are important; it is also the feel and the atmosphere. When you walk into our terrace it has a holiday feel to it and after a long gloomy winter we could all do with starting our summer a bit early.”
So there you have it. Get in the mood for the warmer months by calling into our Zouk terrace where you can enjoy food, drinks or shisha with your friends and pretend it really is summer all year round!
And…. if you are planning a party or an event why not start with drinks on our terrace and then move into the restaurant for an Indian feast on our Mezzanine floor. The variety of space Zouk has on offer can help you plan an event that flows from welcome drinks to relaxed dining. With our terrace offering a perfect spot for mingling and catching up while the Mezzanine is ideal for pulling up a chair and tucking into some fantastic food, together these unique spaces make Zouk the ideal venue for a party or special occasion!
