London’s best known celebrity nightclub is coming to Manchester


One of London’s best-known nightclubs is opening in Manchester this weekend.

Soho celebrity haunt Chinawhite is opening in Deansgate this evening.

It is the first time the brand has ventured out of the capital to open a new club and the venue will be targeted at Manchester’s celebrity and football set.

The London nightclub has long been a favourite haunt of the rich and famous and its clientele over the years has included the likes of Kate Moss, Tom Cruise and Prince Harry.

In recent years, the founders created the Libertine brand for its weekend events which brought a new generation of celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Kendall Jenner and Lewis Hamilton.

The Manchester launch coincides with the 20th anniversary of the nightclub brand which originally launched in 1998.

James Spallone, Chinawhite managing director, said: “We are delighted to be opening Chinawhite in Manchester.

“Having dabbled with a couple of franchises over the years we decided that, in our 20th year, it was time to take the plunge and open our own new site.

“Manchester has an amazing and vibrant nightlife scene, so it was obviously our first choice of location.

“Our desire is to create a stylish and exotic interior, provide excellent service and a welcoming atmosphere.

“We worked very closely, with members of the original design team, to retain the opulent and unique feel made famous in our original site 20 years ago.”

The sumptuous new interior of Chinawhite Manchester will feature terracotta warriors, oriental artworks and ornate carvings among other exotic interior details.

Chinawhite Manchester is at 244 Deansgate.
