12 Manchester restaurant and bars we’ve loved and lost in 2023 including Rio Ferdinand's Rosso

It's time to remember the much-loved Manchester restaurants and bars that closed in 2023.

It has been another year of ups and downs for Manchester’s hospitality sector. While we have had some exciting new openings, we have also said goodbye to some of the city’s most loved food and drink spots. 

From cocktail bars to coffee shops, it seems no establishment is safe from the cost of living crisis. However, there is some hope in the successful new openings, that range from high-end dinings, like Sexy Fish and Gordon Ramsey’s Lucky Cat, to food halls like Kargo MKT at Salford Quays. 

But as 2023 comes to an end, let’s take a moment to remember the Manchester institutions that we have loved and lost over the past 12 months.
