Possibly Manchester’s most urban venue, this original Victorian school house has been transformed into a chic luxury townhouse hotel. The unique atmosphere may charm and bewitch you from the moment you step inside, with the pewter bar, striking overhead chandelier and the showpiece south facing Rooftop Lounge and Playground alongside 30 individually designed bedrooms and suites.
The Oyster Bar is an attractive ground floor area in the Great John Street Hotel. It was designed by Sally O'Loughlin and combines chic vintage decor with a pewter bar, glamorous chandelier, plush seating and historic sepia photographs of the Victorian school's previous pupils. For birthday parties and corporate Christmas or Summer parties of up to 200 the Oyster Bar can be hired alongside the Library & Terrace
A characterful meeting room conveniently located within Manchester's bustling city centre. With a strong technical specification and terrace breakout area, this space is well suited to hold a boardroom meeting for 22, a working lunch or dinner for 40, or even a seminar, presentation or drinks reception for up to 50. Being situated within the delightfully eclectic Great John Street hotel, additional function rooms, overnight accommodation, dining and relaxation facilities are available to delegates.
The Headmaster's Office is a sleek and modern meeting room which retains many original features. Also, it features a variety of technical equipment to aid presentations and seminars. If more space is required for a larger conference or corporate networking event with up to 100 delegates, the Headmaster's Office can be hired alongside the Mezzanine & Kitchen.
Overlooking the lively Oyster Bar, the airy Kitchen & Mezzanine is a superb area, able to accommodate up to 100 for a drink reception, birthday party, buffet or sit-down dinner. The space can be hired privately, or alongside the Oyster Bar and Headmaster's Office as a breakout and refreshment area.
These light and airy meeting rooms are located on the hotel's ground floor. Individually the rooms can seat 12 for a board room meeting or conference, 14 for a working lunch or corporate dinner, or up to 60 delegates if hired together. By hiring the Boys' & Girls' Classrooms, delegates also have access to a delightful outside breakaway area.
The elegant Rooftop Lounge is a unique venue in Manchester with access to the iconic south facing terrace which makes it an ideal venue for lively birthday, or anniversary parties and corporate events. The hotel can cater for parties with 8 to 150 guests and can provide an array of refreshments from canapés, to BBQs, hog roasts, buffets, afternoon teas and sit down meals to suit all dietary requirements and personal tastes.
