In Manchester’s most celebrated building, the historic Free Trade Hall, stylish spaces create a mood of understated luxury in the city centre, moments from Manchester Central.
Sienna Spa, deep in the building’s vaults, is a blissful urban hideaway, and dramatic red lanterns lend a decadent air to Opus One Bar and Restaurant. Through the hotel’s soaring lobby, Alto is a relaxed alternative for dress-down dining.

Opus Reserve is the latest drinking den to hit Manchester. Located in the historic Colonnade of the iconic Free Trade Hall, Opus Reserve is the new stand-alone Champagne bar at the multi-award winning Radisson Blu Edwardian, Free Trade Hall Manchester hotel.
This haute hangout, which is set to become a favourite destination of the Manchester social set, offers an extensive selection of impressive Champagnes. Opus Reserve offers Champagnes that range from £9.90 for a glass, up to £341 for a bottle of Louis Roederer Cristal Brut, while those looking to splash out can do with a magnum of Krug Grande Cuvée Brut, for a cool £835.
The menu has a selection of small taster plates, which have each been designed to complement the collection of Champagnes available. The tapas-style dishes are priced between £3-£6 and include picholine marinated olives; Cumbrian cured ham; belly pork scampi with Eddisbury Farm apple puree; marinated griddled artichoke (v) and saffron tempura of gambas with sweet chili mayo.
Reminiscent of the grand entrance that once welcomed legendary figures, the Opus Reserve Colonnade features dramatic vaulted ceilings, exposed brickwork and luxurious furnishings.
