BrewDog announces Manchester DogHouse hotel

BrewDog, the multinational brewery, has submitted planning permission to the Manchester City Council for an 18-bedroom hotel.

The project would be situated in the Fountain Street area of Manchester, and is part of wider plans to introduce a 3,512 sq ft restaurant and bar.

Features of the DogHouse hotel would include a welcome Punk IPA on entry, room-service, a record-player and guitar in each room, and an in-shower fridge stocked with the firm’s products.

James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog, said: “We firmly believe that where you stay in a city should be your home from home so we are bringing BrewDog and our passion for great beer to life at BrewDog DogHouse Manchester.”

The Scottish brewery’s latest restaurant and bar would be its third Manchester site, transforming Bruntwood Works’ Bloc building by January 2021.

Chris Middleton, retail and leisure manager at Bruntwood Works, who is assisting the project, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with BrewDog as part of our plans to transform this area of Manchester. 

“It is an iconic, trailblazing brand with whom we share many of the same goals in terms of our sustainable and community driven ethos.”
