Loungers is to open its 10th Cosy Club site at the Corn Exchange Manchester.
The group is to invest £850,000 in the casual dining restaurant, which is set to open in July 2015 and join Eclectic Grill, Wahaca and Vapiano at the restored dining destination.
Cosy Club's menu includes brunch options such as steak and eggs, and ham hock hash, along with an all-day offer of sandwiches, burgers and main courses which include venison pie, slow roasted Cherry Orchard pork belly, and pan fried hake.
Loungers executive vice-chairman Alex Reilley said: "We're really excited to be opening a Cosy Club in Manchester and we feel extremely privileged that we will occupy space in one of the city's great landmarks and in a city valued for its leisure offerings and attractions. With its transport links to cities such as London and the Exchange Square tram stop being part of the Metrolink development, we couldn't have chosen a better location."
Stuart Harris from Queensberry Real Estates, the firm overseeing the £30m redevelopment of the Corn Exchange, added: "Cosy Club is a perfect example of the type of operator we envisaged for the scheme, they have an innovative fit out and a wonderful atmosphere and menu throughout whole day and in to the evening. Our line-up is looking really good and we will be announcing other names in the next month or so."
Cosy Club Manchester is due to open when the Corn Exchange is complete in July 2015.
