Grafene Restaurant Manchester
Grafene Manchester

Nearly 10 years ago, Paul and Kathryn Roden opened the four-star Losehill House Hotel and Spa near the village of Hope in the Peak District. In 2016, they decided they wanted to replicate the success and bring those relaxing drinking and dining experiences from the country to the city.

The island bar serves vintage Champagne, local beers and scientifically-inspired cocktails which pay a nod to graphene, the Manchester innovation from which the venue takes its name.

Under the direction of one of the region’s most celebrated mixologists, Bar Manager Asa Cann, formerly of Quill, the creative drinks complement a superb wine list and the introduction into Manchester of the Pommery Champagne label, alongside local artisan craft beers and cocktails.

With private booths and a big bar space, Grafene is a relaxed, unstuffy atmosphere with two intimate private dining areas, which specialise in wine tasting, either as an accompaniment to the daily changing restaurant menu, or as a dedicated activity, tailored to each party.

The interior of the venue is complemented by an al-fresco area on the thoroughfare between King Street and Chapel Walks.

So why call it Grafene?: “We are inspired by the world’s first 2D material, Graphene, first isolated at Manchester University.

“Grafene is our food and drink interpretation of this exciting new chapter in Manchester’s rich history, and of the excitement and energy there is around its possibilities for science and technology ", said owner Paul Roden.

Grafene's restaurant offers a modern take on fine British dining, offering quality throughout under the direction of head chef Ben Mounsey, Grafene's menu offers Ben’s interpretation of fine, contemporary British food which comprises of a la carte, a five & seven-course taste of menu, an Inka Grill menu and small plate options all sourced from non-GM local or artisan suppliers.

But Grafene is anything but formal and you can call in for a relaxed brunch, freshly baked bar snacks whilst catching up with friends or colleagues, or just stop by to try one of the experimental cocktails at the bar.

Grafene Reviews

"Manchester is the home of Graphene, the two-dimensional, atomic-scale, honey-comb lattice carbon material, which was first isolated at the University of Manchester in 2004. And whilst Paul and Kathryn Roden may not have any relation to the ground-breaking scientists, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, their restaurant in the former Brasserie Blanc unit, just off King Street, pays more than a nod to the scientific discovery in not just its name and honey-comb furnishings, but with a playful menu that should keep any lab technician happy." ~ Restaurants Of Manchester, September 2016
