Jamie’s Italian, Manchester
100 King St is a Grade II* listed building, an Art Deco edifice surrounded moat-like by roads on all four sides. Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and built between 1933 and 1935, it features carvings by the local sculptor John Ashton Floyd. It housed the Midland and then HSBC bank until 2008 when it lay vacant.
The lay out has been divided into three levels – a ground floor banking hall, a mezzanine floor and a basement vault room . Many of the existing features have been retained by way of maintaining the impressive historical architecture of the building – marble columns, Art Deco lighting, marble staircase and original wooden panelling. The original black and white marble flooring design has been carefully reproduced and laid across the ground floor. The original bank counters have been repaired and refurbished and skillfully incorporated into the stunning bar and anti-pasti counter with additional decorative glass and metal work.
