You know someone is a REALLY good friend when they open a wine and bread bar right next door to where you work! My friend Dale was my boss way back in my Oddbins days and has been a very close friend ever since. He has just gone into business with a group of like minded people including the people who own the fab Dough Pizza Kitchen to launch this new independent business on Lever Street in the Northern Quarter.

Bakerie will specialise in wines (including lots by the glass), artisan breads, oils, vinegars etc. It will also have desserts made by Lisa who used to make the wonderful cupcakes when Cocoa Emporium was in Afflecks Palace. So, there'll be plenty for vegans, all clearly labelled and the gluten free will also be well catered for.

Bakerie consists of two parts. There will be the wine bar and then just opposite the tasting store where you buy stuff to take home. It even has it's own Invader on the wall outside.

Last night was a pre-launch event as part of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival and it was a chance to sample the lovely breads and wines. Not sure if Mr Horse lamp will be staying when the site opens in November or if he was just brought in for the night but we were all rather taken by him!


  1. That lamp is amazing! This looks like such a fun night out! :)

  2. Also, I have given you an award on my blog. xx

  3. How exciting, I'd love it if something like this opened next door to me and it's great that they'll be vegan + gf options!

  4. That is so great that you will have a place like this right near you. Great, but dangerous. ;) I want cupcakes near me all the time!

  5. I'll be in Manchester Friday and Saturday! Their website doesn't have much info yet. Is it the sort of place you could stop for coffee and cake? Excited.

  6. Veganefcliz, afraid it's not opened yet, opening in November. This was a tasting pre-launch thing. Can't wait until it does and Susan yes you are right, it will be dangerous with those cakes so close!
