Welcome to 20 Stories


20 Stories is a rooftop restaurant, bar and terrace in the heart of Spinningfields. The restaurant’s name is inspired by the history, culture, icons and music that have influenced Manchester and the North West’s own stories.


The restaurant at 20 Stories brings warmth and authenticity not only to its modern British menus, but also through its interiors which take inspiration from nature and modern glamorous elements to create a truly unique experience.

Cocktail Bar

A destination in its own right: a perfect place to enjoy pre-dinner drinks or party the night away in the heart of Manchester.


20 Stories also has an alluring rooftop garden terrace which has trees scaling two storeys high.

With an outdoor lounge bar under a canopy of trees and dramatic lighting, this is the perfect setting for any occasion.

An outside BBQ and al fresco fireplaces are dotted along the terrace to create a cosy atmosphere against the stunning backdrop of the Manchester skyline.

For drinks, why not take an area with only blue (subject to availability) sky above? Your own exclusive area on the terrace can be reserved for groups of 6 or more. For more information contact our events team.
