Barca was originally owned by Simply Red’s front man Mick Hucknall in the 1990s. Recently, new owner Anthony Sheridan has restored the venue back to its former glory days and named one of the rooms in honour of the famous singer. Situated in Castlefield in Manchester, Barca has swiftly become the go-to vibrant place for those seeking quality cuisine in an on-trend venue.
The menu is a tour de force of eclectic dishes, with culinary inspiration taken from far and wide. Every dish on the seasonal food catalogue is cooked fresh to order with only locally sourced ingredients used in each recipe. The mouth-watering menu is designed by one of the region’s top chefs so expect good quality cuisine. Baked tortilla chips with chilli beef; marinated tandoori chicken, and crispy hoi sin duck rolls are among the internationally-inspired dishes on the starter board. The options for mains are equally as delectable and feature such classics as beef and ale pie; slow-roasted lamb shank; a choice of succulent burgers, and a selection of healthy salads for the calorie-counters. Indulge in a baked vanilla cheesecake or a double chocolate brownie with fudge sauce for a sugar hit to end. Sharing platters and sandwiches feature on the menu too; catering for appetites large and small.
Barca’s interior is stylish and contemporary as befits a Twenty-first century venue. Its modern appearance is juxtaposed with Castlefield’s historical attractions which can be enjoyed from the restaurant’s balcony and canal-side terrace. The chic urban décor of the restaurant is the perfect backdrop for a romantic meal for two or a gathering of family and friends. Make the most of Barca’s generous outdoor areas which offer alfresco dining on those balmy summer evenings.
