El Gato Negro Available For Private Hire



Further to much demand, El Gato Negro has announced it is opening the top floor of its King Street restaurant for private hire.

Complete with its own bar and retractable roof, the location makes the perfect setting for unique and memorable occasions. The third floor space caters for up to 60 seated guests or 100 standing.

A bespoke approach will be taken to each booking. Services include full catering with guests treated to an extensive and substantial array of canapes and cocktails, live entertainment and business support. A dedicated team of hosts will also be on hand to facilitate each event.

Guests looking to host an exclusive affair can take advantage of the private entrance, providing discrete access away from the hustle and bustle of the main restaurant.

Speaking on the introduction of the service, Chef Patron Simon Shaw said: “Since opening we have been inundated with requests from people looking to host events here. We’re delighted to introduce the option of private hire to our top floor restaurant and look forward to welcoming guests.

Adding to this, Events Director Helen Tucker said: “We really want to make each event hosted here unique and have a great team in place to offer the very best service. We invite anyone looking to host an event to get in touch and talk through their requirements with us.

Prices vary subject to requirement and see a minimum spend of £5,000.

For those looking to celebrate a special occasion but are happy to share the space, El Gato Negro will also now cater for parties of up to 16 guests.

To speak to one of the restaurant’s dedicated host team on private hire options, please phone 0161 694 8585 or email events@elgatonegrotapas.com.

El Gato Negro has received critical acclaim since opening its doors in February 2016. The restaurant has since been crowned Newcomer of the Year at the 2016 Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards and City Restaurant of the Year at the Lancashire Life Food and Drink Awards. Furthermore, the restaurant was listed in the National Restaurant Awards Top 100 in the UK alongside Manchester House and The French, and is the only Manchester restaurant to receive a Michelin Bib Gourmand for 2017 – the special recognition was awarded to the restaurant for offering exceptionally good food, at moderate prices.

Welcome to El Gato Negro, an award-winning tapas restaurant and bar. We've relocated and recently opened our new home in a beautifully-converted historic three storey building on King Street in the heart of city centre Manchester.

Founder and chef patron Simon Shaw creates seasonally-influenced dishes, combining modern and traditional Spanish flavours and techniques while taking inspiration and ingredients from closer to home. Our food is perfectly complemented by a superbly-chosen range of Spanish wines, sherries, spirits, tonics and beers.

Our new home gives us the chance to offer a range of great food, drink and service for customers old and new. Step in off the street for a glass of something, a little casual bar dining and sample charcuterie and cheeses on the ground floor. Fancy making a meal of it? Dine in our first floor restaurant, perhaps overlooking historic King Street or sitting at the chef's table, watching the theatre of your food cooked in front of you in our open kitchen. Or kick back and enjoy some exclusive cocktails with friends in the intimate surrounding of our top floor cocktail lounge, The Black Cat at El Gato Negro, with its unique retractable roof to make the most of the sun and stars when weather permits. Whatever you choose, you'll always feel at home with El Gato Negro.
