Heaton Moor to welcome new Tusk cocktail bar and restaurantAll News
The KRO site on Shaw Road has been bought by the owners of Walrus, Hula, Rosylee, The Fitzgerald and Infamous Diner in Manchester
Heaton Moor is set to welcome a new cocktail bar and restaurant from the owners of a clutch of Northern Quarter venues.
The former KRO bar site, on the corner of bustling Shaw Road, will become a new branch of Tusk after being bought by Mark Andrew Developments, which owns the African-inspired bar of the same name in Manchester city centre.
The group also owns Walrus next door in High Street, as well as Rosylee, Hula and The Fitzgerald in Stevenson Square, Infamous Diner just off Shudehill, and Hula and Chalk in Didsbury.
Bosses say Tusk Heaton Moor will be a ‘very different concept’ to its Northern Quarter namesake. Full details are still under wraps but we’re told it will be ‘contemporary and cool, with a focus on delicious cocktails and modern cuisine’.
MAD Ltd managing director Mark Andrew, who has lived in the Stockport suburb for 23 years, said: “To be able to bring our latest food and drink concept here is very exciting for me personally, and for the rest of the team who have a lot of love for the area.
“As well as a fresh new look, we can promise residents a good dose of our MAD flair, with inventive cocktails, quality food and a range of food, drink and music-led events.”
Building work is already under way and the bar is set to open in time for the August bank holiday.
