Sacha Lord - the man behind The Warehouse Project and Parklife plans to pay everyone’s bill at the Thirsty Korean restaurant in Chorlton this Sunday.
In a video posted to Instagram, he said: “You might remember that last summer I decided to do a tour of Greater Manchester for all 10 boroughs and it was announced in advance I’d turn up on a Sunday, choose one bar and for one hour I bought everybody free drinks and I had the time of my life and met so many amazing people.
“Doors will open at four o’clock and close at 10:15pm, and between four and 10:15 go in there, eat as much as you want, drink as much as you want because I’m footing the bill. It is that simple, there is no catch.
“Just walk in, she’s not taking bookings that day, just walk-ins, but eat as much as you want, drink as much as you want and yeah try and rinse me.”
He also posted on the social media site: This Sunday. Free meals and drinks on me. No catch. The Thirsty Korean, Manchester Rd, Chorlton. We need to support and protect our local independent Hospitality businesses.
“We need to support these independents, as you know. This place came on my radar actually in November when somebody sent me an article,” Lord went on.
“The article was an interview with the owner and she had been bullied coming out of Covid into trying to take out some advertising and she was left there in tears.
“I’m doing this to help hospitality, to help independents, but actually let’s do what we do best in Manchester and let’s stand up to those bullies. I’m going to be there enjoying the food, enjoying the drinks, we’re going to have a great day.”
