The elegant rooms that make up the Rooftop Lounge are unique within the city centre, south facing and leading out to the Rooftop Playground. This 3rd floor space is one of the most diverse areas within the Old School House.
Please note access to this area is not guaranteed to hotel residents - for more information regarding your stay please contact the hotel directly.
The Rooftop Lounge can be hired privately alongside part of the Rooftop Playground and heated veranda. Having its own bar, the lounge is ideal for cocktail parties, private dining, media/ TV interviews, photo shoots/filming, casting, launches, wedding ceremonies and wedding receptions for up to 175 people.
The south facing terrace has views that extend over the city and has adopted its name from its former use as the boys playground. The Playground offers a real vacation flair with its informal wicker furniture and home-nurtured plants.
When the main Rooftop Lounge & Playground is in use for private hire a section of the Playground becomes accessible via the girls staircase allowing access 24/7 to hotel residents.
In conjunction with the Rooftop Lounge, the Rooftop Playground offers the most unique backdrop for any event and celebration in Manchester perfect for rooftop BBQs, launch events, cocktail parties and wedding receptions. For event enquiries please fill out this form.
