Housed in a landmark early 20th century warehouse on the corner of Chorlton Street and Canal Street, LEVEN Manchester is a new hotel. LEVEN’s red brick walls and Crittall windows hold a rich history dating back to Manchester’s industrial past, including former uses first as a cotton warehouse, and more recently a brewery and comedy club. Following an extensive interior and exterior reimagining, the property will open for soft launch in November 2021 as a design-led, 42-key hotel. LEVEN is a new lifestyle hotel concept, and is a joint venture between Manchester-born entrepreneurs, brothers Joshua and Ben Senior, and Wellbrook Hospitality.
The rich industrial heritage of the building is immediately evident in its high ceilings, exposed brickwork, and timber floors. The lobby features a brass-topped bar with emerald green scalloped tiles, blackened steel ceiling-height units, and statement lighting for a dramatic entrance. There’s plenty of space to hang out on comfy sofas in green velvet and soft leather armchairs.
Every room and suite is unique, taking the historic roots and industrial bones of the building and merging it with sleek interior touches. All have oak parquet or timber floors and bespoke furniture. Some feature high ceilings, exposed brickwork, and standalone bathtubs; others have full kitchens.
