A Manchester restaurant is extending its opening hours into the evening one day a week for a new concept revolving around the idea of an ever-changing menu of small plates.

The Green Lab, located on Dale Street in the popular Northern Quarter area of the city centre, will keep its doors open into the evening each Thursday for The Night Lab.

There will be a choice of small plates on offer paired up with natural wines, with the overall theme behind the food offering changing every few weeks. Currently those attending the launch of the new venture will be given a taste of China.

Here’s what you need to know about the new opening arrangements and how you can book your visit to The Night Lab.

What is The Night Lab at The Green Lab?

The Green Lab is a restaurant and a fitness space located in the Northern Quarter which has previously only been open in the daytime for customers to enjoy its selection of food which includes brunches, bagels, wraps and nutrition bowls.

Now, though, the place is staying open from 6pm until 10pm every Thursday when it is known as The Night Lab. For this special later-hours experience diners will be able to enjoy a selection of small plates alongside pairings of natural wines.

There are also sides including a crispy duck salad, a pickled cucumber salad, garlic green beans and salt and pepper aubergine. Vegan options are also available.

The menu will be changed every six weeks, with the bao buns remaining available until 1 June. The theme for the next menu will be announced ahead of it being served for the first time.
