Change of Use for 60 Spring Gardens

Following submission of a full planning application and listed building consent, Manchester City Council gave the go-head for the re-development of 60 Spring Gardens; a Grade II listed building located in the heart of historical Upper King Street.

Bar operators Roc & Rye have refurbishment plans to create an independent, high-end craft coffee and cocktail establishment in the ground floor unit of the building which has been vacant for some time.

Located in Upper King Street’s conservation area and originally designed by local architect Alfred Waterhouse, the Grade II listed building was previously allocated as office use. The planning application requested a change of use from office to a high-end bar. Designed by architects Pickard Design, the fit out and style of the new bar will be in keeping with the surrounding uses and complementing other leisure units in the area.

Roc & Rye has been set up by a trio of Directors (an award-winning bar tender, a highly experienced bar Businessman and a Corporate Marketing Consultant) and the proposed new bar will offer daytime trade in craft coffee as well as alcoholic drinks and a night time venue. The unit has been granted a 10am-3am alcohol license seven days a week.
