New year opening for LA-inspired wellbeing concept at New Bailey
A new LA-inspired food and wellness offering, FoodWell, is set to arrive at Salford’s One New Bailey in the new year, further cementing the wider New Bailey development as one of the premier mixed-use schemes in the region.
New Bailey which sits adjacent to Spinningfields, just a short walk from Salford Central train station is being delivered by The English Cities Fund, a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England.
FoodWell will be occupying a 9,000 sq ft unit on the ground floor of flagship office development, One New Bailey, which is also home to unique bar and restaurant, Menagerie. The brand-new health concept which will be a coffee shop and deli by day, and a 150-cover restaurant by night, has a diverse offering from healthy but indulgent food, to superfood cocktails.
The venue also will also have its own yoga studio which can be transformed to host meetings and private dining parties, as well as regular community events, master classes and workshops.
Open through Monday to Sunday, FoodWell will offer a click and collect lunch service, supported by an app, perfect for busy office workers. People will be welcome to work from the coffee shop during the day, but laptops will be banned on weekends in a bid to help people unwind and socialise. Live music and special brunch offers are also planned for Saturdays and Sundays.
Phil Mayall, regional director at The English Cities Fund, said: “There’s nothing quite like FoodWell operating in Manchester right now and we’re delighted to have them on board at New Bailey.
“The diversity of what FoodWell will bring to the scheme, not just in terms of its food and beverage offering, but the events and classes it is planning to host, sets them apart and we believe it will be popular with the growing number of young professionals living and working nearby.
“2019 is set to be another busy year at New Bailey as the site continues to progress and we’re looking forward to starting the year on a high with the welcoming of a new business.
Christian Coates, founder of the FoodWell, said: "We wanted to create a concept that disrupts the market - something people didn’t realise that they needed but once they’ve experienced it, they can’t live without it.”
FoodWell will open January 2019.
