Hilton Manchester Deansgate to refurbish Cloud 23 bar

The Hilton hotel Manchester Deansgate is set to refurbish its destination bar, Cloud 23.

Work will commence on 11 September and the bar will reopen in November, with Hirsh Bedner Associates overseeing the refurbishment.

Senior designer Lloyd Chapman commented: "The main inspiration came from finding ourselves at the highest point in Manchester and the feeling of almost being able to touch the clouds.

"We then thought about the huge influence that the cotton industry had on Manchester during the industrial revolution and worked on the idea of cotton clouds, which will be used as a key concept feature. Additionally the city's vibrant music scene was a big source of inspiration, with the words from the Stone Roses' Elephant Stone - including the phrases ‘kissing the clouds' and ‘burst into heaven' - also playing a part."

Cloud 23 will be closed during the refurbishment but the rest of the hotel will remain open.
