Shopping. Shopping in posh shops. Shopping in stores, salons and boutiques. Mmm, shopping.
While there is some debate over whether Spring has actually sprung, Manchester’s luxury style quarter is not hanging about. The Avenue is showcasing new designer arrivals in its array of top notch shops.
I remember the days when posh Manchester consisted of one street: King Street. Now there are more designer outlets than you can shake a stick at. To list The Avenue’s stores is to name the great and the good of the fashion world: trip down to Spinningfields and you’ll see the likes of Emporio Armani, Mulberry, DKNY Men, Brooks Brothers, Phillip Stoner and Oliver Sweeney, not to mention a selection of upmarket eateries and bars available for food and drink pit-stops. Down this way is the subterranean Australasia restaurant, the permanent pop-up Oast House as well as Neighbourhood and The Alchemist.
And, if you venture down on Easter Friday, there is a duck race. Yes, you heard me, a DUCK RACE. For charidee. What’s not to like?
