The Lowry in Salford Quays has revealed its new restaurant, Pier Eight, following the completion of a £2.4million package of refurbishment works by integrated property services and project delivery specialist, Styles&Wood.

The works, which have created a total of 800 square meters of dining and event space at the landmark theatre complex, incorporate 120 square meters of extended space in the style of two shipping containers, providing views over the Manchester Ship Canal. The complete extension includes a terrace area, an event space with a second private terrace, as well as the Pier Eight restaurant and bar with an extended kitchen.

Paul Lonsdale, Operations Director at Styles&Wood, said: “Our team has a great deal of experience working across the leisure and hospitality sectors, and we have worked closely with The Lowry’s management team throughout the project to ensure a smooth completion. With more than 800,000 visitors every year there is no doubt that the new restaurant and event space will only add to The Lowry’s appeal and act as a further draw to those visiting Salford Quays.”

Julia Fawcett OBE, Chief Executive of The Lowry, added: “We’re absolutely delighted with the outcome of this project, the new extension has created a range of beautiful, elegant areas for socialising and corporate entertaining that will offer more to the community here in Salford Quays, as well as becoming a destination location in their own right.”

Pier Eight seats a total of 300 covers, while the event space has a capacity of 100 and is available for both corporate and private hire.
