Mollie’s, Manchester

Mollie’s is heading for Manchester’s Old Granada Studios! ­– the landmark being reinvented as part of a vibrant new cultural destination. The iconic 1950s television studios (where both the Beatles and Sex Pistols made their first TV appearances) will be home for Mollie’s Manchester in partnership with a new Soho House from 2023.

Dreamed up by the founder of Soho House and his creative team, Mollie’s are twenty-first-century motel-diners with big ambitions. In spirit, Mollie’s was born in America – ‘an offspring of the classic roadside motel and drive-in diner, a welcome stopover on a route to somewhere’.

The brand has borrowed the inviting red neon signs, easy-going vibe, burgers, shakes, bottomless coffee, and a dash of nostalgia. But there’s nothing old-school about Mollie’s. Expect innovative digital check-in, EV chargers, designer rooms with a fresh Soho House look and affordable prices.
