Bespoke Hotels to launch Hotel Brooklyn in February 2020

Bespoke Hotels has announced the launch of Hotel Brooklyn, a new development set to open in Manchester’s city centre in February next year. 

Located on Portland Street, it will feature rooms across seven floors, as well as a rooftop bar, events space and restaurant serving American-inspired cuisine.

The 189-bedroom property has been designed by Squid Inc, the same team behind nearby sister property, Hotel Gotham. Motionspot have overseen the inclusive design of the hotel, creating an industrial-style interior that is “designed to recreate the sense of journeying down a Brooklyn avenue”.

Bespoke Hotels said: “The name Brooklyn was inspired by the New York Borough and chosen for its resonating similarities to Manchester, in terms of its buzzing industrial growth, as well as its strength of identity and culture.”

Brooklyn loft-spaces are said to be the inspiration behind the 189 bedrooms, which are furnished with brass beds, Turkish rugs, as well as street art wall features.

The new development will also site Runyon’s bar and restaurant, named after American writer Damon Runyon, and will serve dishes influenced by European and American cuisine.

In addition to this, the hotel will also feature 18 accessible bedrooms. Ed Warner, founder and CEO of Motionspot, said: “Accessible accommodation at Hotel Brooklyn features subtle details like basins with integrated hand grips, removable matt black grab rails, accessible bedroom storage and a hidden ceiling track hoist.

“We hope this high level of attention paid to inclusivity will make Hotel Brooklyn one of the most sought-after venues for guests of all abilities.”

Bespoke added that by positioning itself as “Manchester’s most accessible hotel”, Hotel Brooklyn will be a “trailblazer in championing accessible, sexy and modern design for all”.
