The Stock Exchange Hotel, Manchester, England
Located in the heart of Manchester, England, the Stock Exchange Hotel (a name that alludes to its former purpose as the city’s Stock Exchange building) has been meticulously transformed into a collection of 40 rooms and signature suites, crowned by a ridiculously plush 3,500 square foot penthouse residence. The bespoke design of the hotel’s interior – think a palette of heritage hues blended with elegant marble, brass, glass, and blonde wood – is a nod to the history and remarkable stories of the space.
We recommend asking the Stock Exchange’s concierge to curate an itinerary of activities suited to your interests. See a show at the Royal Exchange Theater or Opera House, explore the collections and historic architecture at John Rylands Library, stroll through Albert Square, check out Piccadilly Train Station, and indulge in some retail therapy on King Street. The hotel’s central location gives you access to a lengthy list of things to do and see.
After a day spent exploring Manchester, find a seat at the hotel’s magnificent restaurant. Housed on the former trading floor, under a striking domed ceiling, The Bull & Bear has an upscale atmosphere with a menu of elevated British classics, reflecting the expertise of chef Tom Kerridge. Indulge in chicken kiev with maple glazed butternut squash, Welsh rarebit toast (picture a melty grilled cheese), or spiced Cornish cod with caramelized cauliflower and golden raisins. The Stock Exchange also has boasts two private dining spaces – the Vault and the Bank – for a more intimate and personalized dining experience.
