This cocktail bar in Manchester city centre hides behind a fake laundrette and there’s a lot more to the venue than meets the eye.
The cocktail bar The Washhouse in Shudehill can be accessed only by those who book in advance and are ready to experience a night of discoveries, where they can enter secret rooms, disco toilets and even encounter an extra-large laundry chute slide!
This hidden bar is so secret, some people still attempt to wash their clothes in the machines at the entrance despite the bar having been there around eight years . But if you pick up the phone on arrival and say the secret phrase, you’ll be in for a night of weird and wonderful cocktails and special surprises - from a Narnia style wardrobe to a DJ spinning the decks in the loo and even cocktails flavoured like chicken dinners on the extensive drinks menu.
We chatted to the bar’s manager to find out what other surprises are in store inside for our video report.
