Gold details and trailing plants in a gorgeous glass atrium. @conservatorymanchester is a pop up bar with delectable decor. Thanks for being a fab host @pow_pots I had the best time visiting! 😘
Somebody tell 'yesterday me' that that last cosmopolitan was one cosmopolitan too many 🙈 was fully feeling smug about how fine I felt today until I found myself in a baby singing group this afternoon and regretted all my life choices.
One thing I don't regret is buying this vintage jumpsuit from @rhubarbjumble a few weeks back (that I was wearing today too because jumpsuits are basically baby grows and so comfy)
I'm so into vintage atm, it really feels like finding a little peice of history when you wear something right? Like who was it previous owner? I'm hoping they worry it to drink cosmopolitans rather than to a baby cafe though tbh. 📷 @hello_kathryntaylor
Instagram vs reality, when I'm actually planning getting in my pjs, takeaway ordered and gogglebox on as soon as the kids are asleep 😂
I managed to sneak in a quick shoot with my pal @hello_kathryntaylor last week when I was visiting Manchester and I love them all so much! Can't wait to share more 😊
This outfit I got from @yasapparel was actually a top and trouser rather than a jumpsuit and actually felt like PJs tbh 🙌 pretty much how I prioritise clothes at this point
What are you up to this evening?
Collective | The Manchester music scene has always been an eclectic mix of everything and anything - one of the reasons it's always been legendary. Sid's mission is to constantly seek out new and interesting tunes.
Tap to shop the SS19 collection Sid is wearing and read more on The Idle Man Manual (link in bio). Shot by Cal McIntyre.
Collective | Shot within the @lockehotels in Manchester, comprised as aparthotel and a community hub. Its soothing pastel walls complimenting the minimalist furniture made it the ideal place to shoot and interview Sid Quirk, a Manchester-based producer, resident DJ and Agency Executive for Ad Hoc Records. Follow Quirk at @sidquirk
The full feature, interview and editorial shot by Cal McIntyre is live now on The Idle Man Manual
Eclectic Details | With the launch of our Spring 'Collective Series' tomorrow, here's a sneak peak of the shoot location. Shot within one of the studios at The Whitworth Locke Hotel, the shades of peach and mint tell a tale of Manchester Summer Sunsets. Minimal yet eccentric design details the famed nightlife surrounding the studios of peace in Manchester's Civic Quarter.

Connecting three buildings in Manchester city centre, Whitworth Locke houses 160 studios and suites packed with design-led features, amenities and an Instagram-friendly pastel colour palette. Designers Grzywinski+Pons gutted the buildings before refitting the former textile warehouses in their signature style, creating a juxtaposition between the new interiors and the bones of their Victorian fabric.

Mancurians are a fortunate bunch being the custodians of the newly opened Whitworth Locke Hotel. Designed by New York City based Grzywinski+Pons, the hotel takes over three interconnected 19th Century masonry buildings that once housed textile warehouses. With 160 guest rooms in the site, Whitworth Locke also features a bar, cafe, lounge and co-working space.
Manchester's skies have informed the colour palette, and as such greys, salmon and muted green can be found. Industrial posters from a bygone era promoting trade between "Manchester to far flung (and often warmer and brighter) corners of the globe" have inspired material elements and a striking bright burst of yellow adds a contemporary edge to the palette.
Set within a glass atrium is The Conservatory pop-up bar. The Atrium was once a street that connected the buildings, but now has been beautifully pared back showcasing the framework, maximising transparency and flooding the space with natural light. Original exposed masonry that is perfectly imperfect is juxtaposed with precision cut warm timber at the bar and banquet seating.
The adaptive reuse of the site has ensured that the buildings remain a part of the social fabric of Manchester for years to come. Another beautiful and inspiring project by Gryzwinski+Pons. We salute you!
