CLIENT: Exhibition MCR

PROJECT LOCATION: Manchester | North West

Exhibition MCR is situated on Peter's Street in Manchester City centre, on the site of the old Natural History Museum. 


Exhibition MCR is one restaurant with three independent kitchens - Baratxuri, Sao Paulo Bistro and OSMA. The venue also features two bars with a list of carefully curated cocktails alongside local and international draught beers and an extensive wine list. Later on in the evenings, Exhibition transforms into a music venue with nightly DJs, live singers and instrumentalists.



"After working with Vision Commercial Kitchens on our first project, Haunt in 2021, we were delighted that we would have the opportunity to work with the team again on our larger project Exhibition. This was a highly ambitious project for all concerned as it featured three individual kitchens, a prep kitchen and a large back of house station. The concept, which on paper, reads like a regular food hall, is far from it. Our desire was to create a high-end restaurant enterprise which could deliver quality food consistently. As such, we required a well-designed, aesthetically pleasing operation. 

The project was managed really well from start to finish. The planning, design and execution was flawless considering how many other project they were currently working on. 

Perhaps most importantly were the high levels of communication, which as anyone in the industry knows, was vital in terms of equipment lead times exacerbated by numerous external factors. If certain items weren't going to meet deadlines, replacements were quickly sourced to make sure we stayed on the critical path timeline."
