To celebrate the launch of their new bar on the popular First Street development in Manchester, The Liquor Store today unveiled Star Walk Manchester.
Inspired by the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, Star Walk celebrates 20 of Manchester’s most popular icons as voted for by you – the great people of Manchester.
Amongst the notorious names are music legends Noel and Liam Gallagher, Morrissey, Ian Brown, Ian Curtis, Mick Hucknall, Bez and industry icon Tony Wilson, accompanied by some of the city’s finest sportsmen and women; Paul Scholes and Dame Sarah Storey.
Stars of the screen, both big and small, also have their name enshrined on the Star Walk, including Danny Boyle, Maxine Peake, Caroline Aherne, John Thaw, Les Dawson and, swapping the cobbles of Corrie for a street of stars, Tony Warren. Also in the mix, are leading British suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst, professional stargazer Brian Cox, and finally, adding a poetic and artistic twinkle to Star Walk, Lemn Sissay and L S Lowry.
Liquor Store Co-owner, Doug Waldron comments: “Manchester is at the heart of everything we do at the Liquor Store and with First Street being an artistic breeding ground, located opposite the famous Hacienda building, it seemed fitting to open our new bar in style, by celebrating some of the city’s most prolific stars.”
Don’t delay, the temporary Star Walk installation is only in town for one week. Get yourself down to Jack Rosenthal Street before Monday 10 October to snap a selfie with your favourite star #StarWalkMCR
The Liquor Store First Street opens on Saturday 8 October, offering a vintage Los Angeles vibe with strong Mancunian influence. The new bar will be serving up classic American dishes daily and the drinks menu promises to be packed with innovative cocktails, including ‘Made of MCR’; the latest cocktail creation which combines all the famous flavours of the city in one seriously tasty drink.
