If you’ve been past the site of our wonderful new home in Manchester’s King Street recently, you’ve probably spotted a fair amount of activity. After extensive preparatory work on the site scaffolding has now gone up and development is underway to transform the former retail outlet into a magnificent three storey, 150 cover restaurant. We’re on track for an autumn launch, bringing our award-winning Spanish cuisine to the city centre.
Since securing the building in February, chef patron Simon Shaw has been busily working with a specialised design team to develop the restaurant. With such an historic, elegant building, ensuring a sensitive and sympathetic transformation has been one of our most important considerations. Simon says “We’ve been careful to make the most of our new home in Manchester, pleased with its larger capacity, whilst carefully maintaining the intimacy and character which has always been a key appeal.” Read more

Following news of plans for launching later this year, El Gato Negro Manchester has announced it will open doors at an address on historic King Street.
The former retail space at 52 King Street will see El Gato Negro Manchester take residence across three floors with a stunning conversion sympathetic to the building’s heritage and location. The restaurant’s much anticipated offer will incorporate areas for al fresco all-season eating and drinking, as well as an open finishing kitchen where diners will experience the theatre and pace of authentic tapas.

Season’s Greetings from El Gato Negro Tapas!
We can hardly believe it’s been a month since we announced our big news about relocating to Manchester; since then we’ve been busier than ever, and moved by the level of support and interest from you all. We are now into our last two weeks of service here – with our winter opening hours Wednesday-Saturday – and we only have a handful of covers left between now and our final day on Saturday 20th… so if you’d like to enjoy another award-winning dining experience before we close, we’d suggest calling us on 01422 823070 as soon as possible to book your table.
In more than nine successful years in Ripponden we’ve made many friends here, and have delighted in serving so many customers from both near and far. We hope to welcome many of those familiar faces to our new Manchester home when we open in mid 2015. Please stay in contact with us – via our newsletter, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter – for more news on our exciting new venture in the new year! Finally, thank you all so much for your ongoing support.
From all of us here at El Gato Negro, we wish you and those closest to you a splendidly festive time! Hoping you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year: may you be happy, warm, well-fed and watered. If we’re not lucky enough to see you in the run-up to Christmas we hope we’ll see you in 2015 in Manchester.

We had a visit from Pete, Karen & Meg the rescue dog from Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team earlier this month. Simon was delighted to present a cheque for £500 based on the generous donations from our customers since we launched our campaign this summer. That, plus the donations from the collection box has taken this year’s contributions to over £700! Thanks everyone for supporting such a worthy local cause.
However we’re not finished yet: can you help us hit £1000 by the end of the year? Dig deep please and make a donation when you dine with us. Look out for Simon on New Year’s Eve; he’ll be shaking the collection box and persuading guests to give generously. It’s CVSRT’s busiest season so let’s do everything we can to help!

A special message from Simon…
Today we are delighted to announce an exciting new chapter in the story of El Gato Negro: we will be bringing our award-winning food and drink to Manchester city centre in 2015.
We’ve achieved so much since we opened our doors in 2005 – awards and accolades have increased our reputation and appeal to a wider audience – with the focus first and foremost on delivering quality and showcasing the richness and variety of Spanish food and drink. I am very proud of the consistency and quality we’ve achieved, and the recognition we’ve earned. Read more
