Australasia is a million miles away from anything else in Manchester!
Located underneath the Armani store in Spinningfields, on Deansgate, the beautiful Pacific Rim themed cocktail bar opened on 24th May 2011.
The bar boasts a unique list of expertly crafted, exclusive cocktails alongside all the classics, a great selection of Japanese Sakes and a wine list of impressive proportions.
Signature cocktails include the Smoking Bundy Punch, Kumquat Sling, Asian Mule and Kiwi & Honey Crush whilst there's a massive selection of non-alcoholic cocktails, fresh juices, infused waters, Root Beer and Ginger Beer.
Service from the friendly and knowledgeable staff runs into the early hours against an eclectic backdrop of music created nightly by resident and guest DJ using the amazing Emulator.
The restaurant at Australasia offers modern Australian cuisine, which combines Pacific Rim flavours underpinned by European cooking tradition, a blend of Indonesian, Southeast Asian influences and Australia's strong ties with Japan also help determine the taste and style.
A menu of tempura, sushi and sashimi is available in the bar at all times and is open for drinkers and diners alike.
After 11pm, the restaurant transforms into a Late Lounge until 1am on Thursday and 3am Friday and Saturday.
Guest DJ's set the mood and table bookings are strongly recommended to guarantee entry and availability.
Purchase of a Late Lounge Pre-Order guarantees your table for as long as you want it.

"Fans of The Alchemist will absolutely love its new Australian sister. The menu offers much more of the unique favourites that can be found just around the corner in this area of Spinningfields that Living Ventures seem to be igniting much needed life into.
"From the moment you enter this bright, beautifully decorated bar, underneath the Georgio Armani store, you're instantly taken aback by the attention to detail (and, no doubt, cost), that has been applied in its creation.
"It's hard to think of a more impressive cocktail lounge in Manchester city centre... and that's even before you even try the out-of-this-world cocktails, Sakis, wines and Aussie beers." ~ ManchesterBars.com (June 2011)
