The Second Floor Bar and Brasserie offers a relaxed yet stylish environment in which to enjoy all-day dining, overlooking the expansive views of Exchange Square. This elevated spot offers views over the city, and a black lacquered bar offers a fashionable selection.

A diverse mix of flavours, the Harvey Nichols menu spans from eclectic ‘little plates’ and wholesome bento boxes, to classic main courses. An array of exciting flavours can be found in the likes of tandoori monkfish with sticky mango rice, or pea and mint cannelloni with smoked feta, whilst hearty classics include a succulent signature HN burger, or Atlantic-caught cod with chunky chips.

Innovative twists for dessert include a salted caramel pot au chocolat with hazelnut shortbread, and Vimto summer pudding with clotted cream. Chic and sultry seasonal cocktails are served at the Second Floor Bar, and delicious offerings for brunch include streaky bacon and maple syrup waffles, and classic eggs benedict.

Set in one of Manchester’s most iconic buildings, Harvey Nichols Brasserie is a 6-minute walk from Manchester Victoria Rail Station.

    Great service and delicious well presented food. Drinks expensive if you're not used to Manchester prices. However, it was worth it for a treat. Great city views

    We came as part of the 3 courses and a cocktail for £22 last night and I have to say I was really impressed. Lovely service on arrival - the girl who took us to our table also offered to take our coats and shopping bags and asked if it was a special occasion. A really nice touch. Service at the table was great - our only criticism was when my pregnant friend asked for her salad without prosciutto the waitress told her it would be fine and she was sure she could eat it. That might be the case, I'm not clued up on these things but I thought it was possibly inappropriate to advise? The food was wonderful - gorgeous starters (we had the prawns and fig salad), delicious red mullet main course and absolutely delicious banana toffee waffles. We felt a little disappointed in the gin 'cocktail' - it was basically a gin and tonic, we couldn't taste the ginger. My friend's vodka cocktail was mostly soda. Overall thought, we had such a lovely evening and were really well looked after, and we will definitely return!

    Lovely meal which was nicely presented with a good choice of courses and at a very reasonable price.

    Loved our drinks at the bar. Nicely prepared by Callum, whom always knows what he's doing. Very comfortable, engaged and delightful experience. The same for our lunch in the restaurant. The manager spent time with us and that is such a nice personal touch. The fries and olive starters were great. The Caesar was mediocre at best. But, everything else was so nice and delightful.
