Manchester’s AO Arena (cap. 21,000) has announced the launch of The Mezz; a new suite, premium bar and restaurant, set for completion in early 2024.

The members-only suite, which is open for bookings from this month, is part of a major £50m redevelopment for the ASM Global-operated venue.

The Mezz will feature a bar and restaurant and include post-show entertainment. Guests will have a view of the arena bowl and stage from the suite. It will include three areas; the Beautiful North, AO Electric Lounge and Heineken Lounge.

AO Arena general manager Jen Mitchell said, “With our redevelopment works well underway, we are absolutely delighted to announce the launch of The Mezz. A stunning new suite, premium bar and restaurant for guests, right here in Manchester city centre. And of course, there will be access to watch the shows from some of the best seats in the house.”
