Famed for his hazard-striped columns of the Haçienda, Dry Bar and Fac251, designer Ben Kelly returned to Manchester to undertake the re-design of South. With a brief to modernise the space whilst retaining the underground dive-bar feel, new additions include a bespoke Funktion One sound system featuring a "body sonic infrabass" dancefloor system.
Within the centre of the Victorian building, a new secret courtyard has been transformed into a Lower Manhattan outdoor cinema space, complete with its own bar screening cult artists such as Velvet Underground, Nico & the Stones, taking inspiration from Factory, but this time Andy Warhol's Factory, not Tony Wilson's.
