The doors reopened on Manchester’s old Freemason’s Hall last November after its multimillion pound transformation was completed.
Dating from 1929, the venue has been left largely untouched for decades and its new owners have spent two years lovingly restoring and refurbishing it, working in close collaboration with English Heritage.
The grade II listed building on Bridge Street, now known as Manchester Hall, houses a boutique events space along with several restaurants and bars, including the newly-opened Masons on the ground floor.
Many original features have been preserved including a reception desk built out of an old organ which now greets guests as they walk in.
“The first floor has a masculine feel with lots of reconditioned oak panelling and parquet floors, in line with the conferences and business meetings,” said director Deepa Parekh, formerly managing director of The Circle Club. “The second floor is more neutral, a bit softer and more feminine which lends itself more towards weddings and fashion shows.”
The Jordon Group are delighted to have been appointed as the Air Conditioning Contractors for this outstanding building. Phase one of the developments began with the piping, ducting and all AC works on the third floor. The owners are so thrilled with the work that we have completed they have appointed us to take the Air Conditioning throughout the building to include the first and second floors.
