The roof appears to hover above the building and the entire structure floats on almost 300 earthquake-proof springs. The lack of a rigid connection between the building and its foundation ensures the acoustics are protected from outside noise and vibration « less

We have over 300 different wines to choose off the shelf to take home or drink in, and over 40 of them are available by the glass. And because we're independent, every one of them has been chosen by us. Our state-of-the-art Enomatic machines mean that every glass you try will be as fresh as the moment it was uncorked. As well as standard serving sizes there is a smaller 50ml tasting measure. At last, a wine bar where you can choose exactly which wine you want, and the size you want, even when you all want something different. We've teamed up with independent wine educator Stephen Rosser who runs industry-recognised WSET wine courses on Mondays & Tuesdays and North Star Delicatessen, a local family business which shares our commitment to quality, to offer a range of wine-friendly foods. Salut brings a Mancunian no-nonsense attitude to wine-drinking. If you want a guiding hand, our knowledgable and friendly team are here to help. If you want to have fun exploring on your own, there's no better place to jump in and go for it! « less
