Hatch: Manchester’s food & drink answer to Shoreditch’s Boxpark

Locals around Manchester’s city centre would have noticed work being done on Oxford Road for a while now, as piece by piece, Hatch was coming together. The leisure, food and drink space is now open for business and harnesses 9 independent, small businesses within. Following a similar format to London‘s famous BoxparkHatch could perhaps be Manchester‘s closest thing to their buzzing Shoreditch location.

“Creators, makers and street food operators, in a new pop-up concept under the Mancunian Way”

Looking at Hatch in more detail, operators it includes are the following:

– Takk (Espresso bar) “Keeping you caffeinated 7 days a week, Takk espresso bar. In a hurry? Grab a hot drink from the serving hatch on Oxford Road. Or watch the world go by from their Scandi surroundings.”

– Eat & Sweet (Caribbean food) – “This family-run Jamaican takeaway is the place to come for Jerk vibes. The affordable and authentic Caribbean food on offer includes meat and veggie options, with a whole lot of flavour.”

Oh My Glaze (Street food) – “A man with a pan serving quality chicken wraps and halloumi wraps, plus beaut little chicken wings, in a choice of three signature glazes. 20% student discount available.”

– Blue Caribou Canteen (Street food) – “Tuck into the best poutine this side of Montreal. British Street Food Awards finalist Blue Caribou will brighten up your day with their authentic Québec-style poutine.”

– El Marchador (Mexican food) – “Mexican inspired street food, slinging a delicious menu including tasty vegan tacos and tamales, all plant-based and gluten-free.”

The Beehive Flowers and Gifts (Flowers/gifts) – “Bespoke floral arrangements and gifts for all occasions.”

– Nonsense (Books, plants & ceramics) – “Nonsense brings together carefully curated products from around the world, with plants, ceramics, books and more.”

Öl (Beer)  “Introducing Takk’s baby brother Öl. A nano-brewery and keg bar, Öl is a collaboration with Byrne the Cake Brewery. Enjoy their own brews alongside a selection of beers from some of the world’s best breweries.”

– Love + Labour (Wine) – “No nonsense, just grapes. Real wine from real winemakers. Introducing the city centre’s first all low-intervention wine retailer.”

This is a fantastic concept in-line with the growing student influence within the city. New businesses are popping up every single day, with the owners of Afflecks Palace, Bruntwood UK, responsible for this exciting mixed location. According to Insider Media, Toby Sproll (head of Bruntwood ) claims more is to come – with regular events and retail said to be arriving soon.
