The Library curated by Assouline is the new luxury experience available at Radisson Blu Edwardian, Manchester.
With an expertly designed menu that takes inspiration from Assouline’s Parisian roots, and signature cocktails that have been masterfully crafted to echo iconic books. The unique partnership sees a brand-new social space in the hotel. It’s for guests to soak up Assouline’s luxury cultural offering for bibliophiles, alongside an innovative cocktail and food menu.
Founded in 1994 by Prosper and Martine Assouline, Assouline is the first luxury brand dedicated to culture. Assouline began with the belief that a book, artfully crafted and highly considered in its visual content, can open our eyes and minds. Over two decades, guided by a passion for knowledge, culture, and travel, the brand has extended its vision to create all that can be desired in a chic library, from lavishly illustrated books and special editions that become unique decorative accessories.
Guests can experience an exquisite selection of contemporary dishes. These include the likes of steak tartare with a champagne-infused egg yolk and La Spécialité, a remarkable looking chocolate dome with black cardamom ice cream and molten chocolate sauce.
The impressive a la carte menu sits alongside ‘The Impossible Edition Afternoon Tea’. A selection of homemade finger sandwiches on artisan bread, scones, preserves and patisseries, all available with sparkling wine or champagne.
Signature cocktails have been impeccably created by a team of mixologists. They represent some of the most popular books within the famed Assouline ‘Ultimate’ collections range. ‘La Conception’ is dedicated to all things design. ‘The Runway’ has been inspired by their must-have bible of fashion.
The Library curated by Assouline showcases a vast array of titles, art and furniture. Mirrored nickel lamps project a warm glow over the navy velvet and dark woollen charcoal grey armchairs. Ideal for an afternoon tea or a simple night cap, the baby grand piano and Free Trade Hall-inspired artwork greets guests with a luxury setting to eat, drink and relax in. Meanwhile it captures Manchester’s ties to art and culture.
Designed to be an extension of guests’ bedrooms, this dedicated social space offers a premium residential experience. The Library curated by Assouline is an extension of their successful partnership to date with Assouline, a brand synonymous with luxury, culture and lifestyle. Having worked together across their London properties, it was a natural collaboration that’s already going down a treat.
