A new concept named The Manchester will take over the space formerly occupied by The Liberty in South End.
The folks behind Essex Bar & Bistro and The Local, both Uptown staples, signed a lease for this South End space and will be bringing The Manchester to life.
The Manchester, a modern gastropub with a rustic English flare, plans to soft open at the end of January.
The “refined American” menu will include a prime steak and cheese sandwich, signature lobster roll, 16oz prime rib eye and maple-glazed pork belly or shrimp and lobster risotto.
Fun fact: The Agenda has also learned that there may be a speakeasy-style “secret room” with specialty cocktails.
We’ll keep you posted as we learn more about The Manchester closer to their grand opening.
