It’s November the 17th, and I feel waaaaaay too Christmassy than I should do. But with it being pushed in my face everywhere I go, it’s so hard not to be. At work… in every shop… on every advert – so why fight it? It’s Christmas!
And who knew that a Friday evening in Media City would get me in such a festive mood!
☆ THE LODGE ☆
The Lodge is a pop up bar that has just been set up in Media City. Next to a huge and beautiful Christmas tree, the large tent with big wooden doors is so warm and inviting. It looks like it belongs in Harry Potter!
Inside the creaking wooden doors locked by a metal latch are comfy sofas and tables with fires warming the whole room. There are also big beer barrels to pop your drink on, fairy lights from top to bottom, as well as quirky Swedish themed decorations.
The menu is amazing too. There’s hot chocolate with baileys, mulled wine, lodge cider and lodge beer – they even do shots to start the Christmas festivities off right! Oh, AND THEY DO CHRISTMAS YORKSHIRE PUDDING WRAPS. So say goodbye to queuing at the Christmas Markets in Manchester, and hello Media City!
If you live in or near Salford and you want an excuse to get in the Christmas mood, this is the place. Plus, Media City just looks beautiful at night and in particular at this time of year, so before the year is out – get yourself down to The Lodge in Media City.
