Zouk Manchester’s Outside Terrace

Summer is in full swing at Zouk and our terrace is decked out in stunning tropical flowers. We get tonnes of questions about our terrace so this blog post is here to share all the key information and everything you need to know about Zouk Manchester’s Outside Terrace.

Al Fresco Dining

One of the best things about our terrace is being to eat outside and enjoy a spot of al fresco dining. The space is really relaxed and friendly and we’ve tried to design it as a little tranquil oasis in the heart of Manchester. Inside our restaurant has a thriving atmosphere with the buzz of the theatre kitchen and the hustle and bustle of service, while outside the space is a bit more chilled and with a holiday vibe.

The full a la carte menu is available outside including curries, grilled dishes, seafood and steaks and all our food is halal. At different times of the day, the terrace follows the same pattern as inside with special menus including tiffin lunch, brunch, pre-theatre dining and Sunday roast.*

The terrace is open for outside dining 365 days a year. We don’t take reservations for outside it is walk in’s only for this space.

*please note that the brunch and pre-theatre menus have been suspended since the beginning of the pandemic. We expect both to resume in September 2022 and will update our blog and site when the details are confirmed.

Flower Wall

Our flower wall is something we just love. We get loads of complements on it and it is a key part of the terrace decor. The flowers help create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It’s also a great selfie spot and we love to change it throughout the year to reflect each season.  Every month we run a photo competition on our social media. Be sure to tag us in your photos with #youhadmeatzouk for your chance to win.  Lucky winners get to enjoy a meal for two on the house when they next visit.

All Weather Features

Our terrace features state-of-the-art technology. This includes an electric roof which can open fully during sunny spells. It can also be swiftly closed as required. This proves handy in a city like Manchester, where the rain is never far away. We also have numerous heaters, and warming blankets to keep the space cosy during cooler months.

Shisha is available daily on the terrace from 12 noon to midnight. As there is smoking and shisha permitted in Zouk Manchester’s outside terrace, the whole area is strictly for those aged 21 and over.  This means that unfortunately we cannot permit families with children to dine on the terrace, however, children are always welcome inside the restaurant.

Our shisha starts from £17 and we would recommend one shisha for every two people in a party. All our shisha pipes are throughly cleaned after every use. We also provide disposable tips for every guest.

There are a variety of shisha flavours available and we also offer special blends and pineapple shisha heads. Your waiter will be able to give details of what is available during your visit. When making a booking to dine inside the restaurant, we recommend that if you wish to have shisha outside after your meal you put a note on the ‘special requests’ section when booking so the team can prepare a table outside after your meal.
