Art Fair Cafe

Art Fair Cafe

Meat and veg. Jeckyll and Hyde. Night and day. There’s two sides to everything — and the same should be said of Beastro. We’re located in Spinningfields. By day it is a hubbub of business and finance. By night the heart of Manchester’s social scene so it’s important that we meet the changing needs of our diners in a way that has them licking their chops. We are delighting visitors at The Manchester Contemporary for the four days of the show with our delicious, breakfast and lunch options to keep you going all day.

Browse the menu below and plan your art fair visit around a trip to the cafe.
