BOHEMIAN PLEASURE PALACE NOW RESIDES ON THE GROUND FLOOR OF THE ALBERT HALL.The launch of Albert’s Schloss in October, a 700 capacity bar and restaurant completes the transformation of the Grade two listed building and creates 28,000 square foot of world class food, drink and entertainment.
COOK HAUS, BIER PALACE, FINE WINES, ALPINE COCKTAILS & BAKERYAlbert’s Schloss has become one of the city’s most exciting new venues, the ‘Schloss’, a Bavarian term for ‘Chateau or Country retreat’ is also home to Manchester’s first Tankova or ‘tank bar’. The beer tanks dominate the bar area and requires twice weekly beer runs to the Pilsner Urquell factory in Pilsen, Czech Republic. This process provides the freshest, unpasteurised pint of Pilsner this side of the Danube. This unique feature and 10 other central European house pours justify the title as a ‘Bier Palace’ This commitment to fresh beer alongside homemade schnapps, bottled in the basement and Alpine cocktail menu provide the perfect place to eat and drink pre or post gig.
The commitment to freshness continues in abundance in the Cook Haus restaurant where the inspiration of Executive Chef, Dan Mullen bounds far beyond Bavaria and all over the Alps. Described as rustic Alpine Dining, the food is fresh, rugged and indulgent with traditional. The fodder is befitting of a country manor with more than a subtle Bavarian vibe. The more authentic fayre has some with incredible names (that really have to be shouted) such as ‘SCHWEINSHAXE’!? (pork knuckle). Keeping things slightly more real are Haus steaks, burgers and seasonal specials together with homemade Bavarian flatbreads, sausages and schnitzel. Diners can relax by roaring open fire places, completing the feeling that you have landed in an Alpine retreat.
Another fresh feature is the on site Bakery serving freshly made pretzels, donuts and sourdoughs every day. Over 200 items are baked daily and becomes one of the finest artisan bakeries in the city. This supported by excellent coffees and brunch completes a 24 hour offer for 24 hour people.
