El Gato Negro at King St Festival 2017

Celebrating King Street Festival 2017

This weekend sees the return of the fabulous King Street Festival; a celebration of shopping, food, drink art and live music. It’s running along the whole length the street which lies at the heart of Manchester city centre, on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June.

We’ll be joining in the festivities alongside our fellow neighbours and traders. Chef Patron Simon Shaw will leading the street activities outside; look out for him and the team cooking al fresco, serving two special festival dishes, ready to enjoy at our pavement seating area, indoors alongside our menu, or to takeaway!

  • Chorizo, red pepper aioli and caramelised red onion sandwich £6 
  • Chargrilled vegetables with giant couscous and a salsa verde dressing £5

Our usual outside dining space will extend across King Street for the weekend weekend, so more diners can enjoy the fun of the festival from a prime position.

Our King Street Cooler for the King Street Festival

We’ll also be serving up a recent cocktail classic which celebrates our home: the King Street Cooler. Created with Midori, elderflower, apple, mint, cava & soda, it’s a vibrant, light and refreshing beverage to enjoy, day or night. El Gato Negro festival opening hours are midday onwards. Hope to see many of you there!

(Update) What a cracking weekend! We – along with hundreds of happy customers – enjoyed the weather and the atmosphere on Manchester’s best street alongside fellow traders and businesses!
