New cocktail bar to open in Gary Neville-owned Stock Exchange Hotel

A new cocktail bar is to open at Gary Neville’s Stock Exchange Hotel in Manchester city centre this summer.

Joe and Daniel Schofield, alongside wine expert James Brandwood, will take over the lower ground floor previously known as The Vault.

The team behind Sterling have worked in the likes of Little Red Door, The American Bar at the Savoy, Singapore’s Tippling Club and Rockpool Bar & Grill, Sydney. They also currently run Schofield’s Bar and Atomeca.

They will be joined by Paola Mariotti as general manager, who has spent years working at The American Bar at the Savoy and The Blue Bar at The Berkeley in London.

Joe Schofield said “We have been planning this new concept for a long time and now it’s nearing completion.

“Stock Exchange Hotel is a particularly meaningful venue for us as our mother used to work at the Stock Exchange.

“Our grandmother also learnt to swim in the old pool at the basement in our original Schofield’s Bar location.

“As we continue to evolve our operations in Manchester, it’s warming to have a connection to the past, as that very much reflects our approach to our offering.”

Sterling will be housed in the 2,400 sq ft space and will have a capacity of just over 100 covers.

There will be a bar snack menu developed by Lush by Tom Kerridge, the two-Michelin starred chef responsible for the Bull & Bear restaurant located in the former trading floor of The Stock Exchange Hotel.

Jacqui Griffiths, general manager of Stock Exchange Hotel, added: “We are really looking forward to bringing STERLING to Stock Exchange Hotel. Joe, Daniel and James have a wealth of experience in the hospitality industry which will add to the current offering with three world-class brands housed under one roof.”

Gary Neville said: “From the moment I walked into Schofield’s Bar some eight or nine months ago and met Joe and Daniel I felt like I was walking into an international quality destination but with a local feel and an understanding of the spirit of Manchester.

“We spoke about how we had grown up in Bury and the times we had there.

“I genuinely can’t wait now for Sterling to open in Stock Exchange Hotel and develop this partnership with the Schofield brothers.”
