Mackie Mayor, the second Market Hall from the team at Altrincham Market, has opened this week, and the results are spectacular.
The Grade II listed building, dating back to 1857, has been fully restored to its former glory after being closed since 1972.
Inside you will find a full range of up-market food and drinks stalls offering a variety of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. If you’ve been to the Altrincham Market you should have a good idea what to expect.
Many of the traders will be familiar to anyone who has been to the Altrincham Market, with Reserve Wines, Jack in The Box bar and Honest Crust all set up and ready for business.
Whilst this is a soft-opening, there are still a few parts to get completely right before it’s completely finished. Currently, the upstairs section isn’t quite ready for the public – once open the capacity for Mackie Mayor will be just over 500!
There doesn’t seem to be any free Wi-Fi either, although if you are hoping for a fresh hideaway in NQ to work in this is not the place – it’s way to too busy.
By biggest issue right now with the Mackie is that it’s very much restaurant prices in a market/street food setting. It’s bound to do well for the next few weeks but once the buzz calms down will people still want to stomach these prices?
However, after the great success of their first Market in Altrincham, it is hard to see this not being another great success.
After a full review in the upcoming weeks 🙂
