The Lowry Hotel is a pioneering property, and was the first five-star hotel to open in Greater Manchester and is the only member of Leading Hotels of the World in the region. Even in a city that prides itself on innovation and image; its cutting edge design stands out. The curved glass fronted façade is nothing short of a local landmark, and it makes for a dramatic, memorable venue for any event. The hotel is ideally situated on the banks of the River Irwell in the heart of the city.
The self-contained floor dedicated to conference and banqueting, with a separate entrance at street level, has been recently refurbished to the tune of £250,000 including new audio-visual equipment, furniture, carpets and catering station concepts. With a variety of rooms with full flexibility from a boardroom meeting for 10 to a reception for 600, our event planners can take care of any large request and small detail. The hotel will even crane a car into the 2rd floor ballroom if that is what your event requires.
As a five-star hotel, the Lowry aims to offer a five-star service at the most personal level, with individual needs and requests catered for with speed and efficiency. From the first phone call the event planners are fully skilled to help you deliver any event, ease the pressure, and their experience will ensure that your event will be one to remember.
The Lowry Hotel is not only the perfect venue for conference and business events but is also highly popular for gala dinners, charity events, birthdays and weddings. The hotel will work with event organisers to make sure your event is enjoyed by all your guests.
The food offer is also new, from the team behind the hotel’s celebrated River Bar and Restaurant, with organisers able to choose from no less than 13 new menus, ranging from finger food to banqueting, each treated with fine dining finesse. The hotel kitchen locally sources produce from the Northern counties, creating menus with seasonality for its tailor-made Lowry Lunch Box - options range from Bury black pudding, Scotch eggs or Eccles cake, to healthy dishes like carrot and ginger soup or Cajun-coated pork goujons. However if you wish to tailor make your own menus the highly experienced brigade of chefs will be happy to help. The River Restaurant with its modern European menu, also offers a Private Dining Room seating up to 24 people
The Lowry Hotel holds a kosher license from the highly regarded Beth Din, meaning the hotel is able to cater to Weddings, Bar or Bat Mitzvahs without using an external outside caterer. The new kosher menus have already proven to be a huge success with Manchester’s Jewish community.
In addition to the range of catering options The Lowry Hotel offers the very highest quality accommodation, facilities and services boasting 165 bedrooms which include six Riverside Suites and the Presidential Suite. All rooms are furnished to make any stay – business or pleasure – a memorable one with walk in wardrobes, marble ensuite bathrooms and either city or river views.
