20 Stories

  • Rooftop restaurant for D&D London


Located on the nineteenth-floor of No1 Spinningfields, 20 Stories is an exclusive and social venue comprising of a sophisticated restaurant, vibrant cocktail bar and outdoor terrace, which offers spectacular panoramic views across Manchester’s skyline.  

DesignLSM worked in collaboration with New York-based designers Cetra Ruddy to create a stand out dining destination that reflects the vibrancy and spirit of the city. 


The interior blends the indoor and outdoor spaces together with a seamless design that builds a connection to the rich natural local landscape.

Incorporating locally sourced materials and handcrafted elements to celebrate Manchester’s unique heritage, the space has been designed to convey a vibrant and elevated ambience bringing a new social scene into the heart of the city.


“At night, the panoramic views of the city feel rather magical. The north-west, lit up, breathing, bustling, going about its business, is a lovely thing to behold, particularly as this entire floor, with its midnight-blue banquettes and sparse lighting, makes you feel as if you’re drinking chablis on the Death Star.”
