The only way to any decent folk's heart is through their stomach. The first challenge is how to get there. As we all know, to achieve this you essentially have two basic options available..
1) Surgical incision.
2) Putting food or booze in the mouth of said person.
In our experience, the latter, is a way better and less invasive approach and far more indicative of good times.
Furthermore, tenderly sharing beautiful food and booze with the object of your desire is a nailed on, 1000%, cast iron, direct hit to the stomach and therefore the loins of your dearly beloved. As always at Albert's Schloss, we've got have your back, toes and stomach fully covered. Hence our limited edition sharing menu for Valentines.
Book in advance from 10th to 14th February and order our Cheshire rib of beef for two, in a classic beurre noisette alongside a plethora of all-star Alpine sharing sides like tartiflette (above), Parmesan & truffle fries and charred broccoli, lemon and shallots. Followed by our handmade chocolate salted caramel fondants, this sharing menu is a next level Cook Haus love-in of indecent proportions.
Rich and rugged Alpine sharing feasts demand a formidable booze equivalent. May we reccomends "The Pavarotti' of Italian wines for a truly memorable evening.
Montresor Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 'Satinato'
The grapes are hand harvested at the end of October to ensure only the best ones are used then dried out for four months on straw bails to intensify their richness.. The wine is aged in Slavonian oak casks and small French barrique for 3 years and then finally bottled and left to rest for 6 months before release.
This full bodied stallion has subtle tannins, hints of coffee and dark chocolate and is packed with rich, deep plum flavours and sing in the mouth.
Made for beef and made to share.

After banging out no less than 9 children, it’s hard to think of a more loved up couple than Prince Albert (our namesake) and his beloved Queen Victoria.
In fact, when Albert passed away, Victoria was so distraught that she wore black, every day for 40 years! Bless ‘em! These epic Victorian love birds are the inspiration. So let’s get punch drunk in amore and trust in lust with the following love pumping parties…

The Martini has become a bit of a thing at Albert's Schloss, with our own spins on modern classics such as Pornstar & Espresso Martinis creating quite a stir with the Manchester cocktail elite. Always keen to push things forward, our formidable team of Booze Hounds set out to design The Haus of Martini. A considered and complete Martini menu which landed this week.
Easily excitable we may be a the best of times, but stone the friggin' crows have our bar boffins gone and smashed it out the park.
Here's some of the new, rather regal new residents...
'The Purple Prince of Manchester'
Thomas Dakin gin + Vimto + Albert's Schloss + a lazy pun about the permanent drizzle allprovide strong Mancunian foundations for this glorious and effervescent Martini. We also wanted to pay tribute to an artist that inspires so much at Albert's Schloss, especially our wunderbar entertainment team.
Dom Benedictine, lemon and pineapple complete our new reigning Martini monarch. Raise a glass and make it reign y'all!
Alpine adventure is our inspiration for Winter 2017. Victorian exploration, vintage glamour and old world shag pile grandeur are all perfectly incapsulated with the Grand Tour. Elegant, delicate, refined and indulgent. Take a Grand Tour tonight.
Hendrick's gin, Saint Germain elderflower, Domain de Canton, egg white, cucumber, apple juice make one of our most decadent drinks to date.
Schloss legends - Pornstar, French, and Espresso Martinis complete our new Haus of Martini line up. So go do some lunges, warm up those drinking muscles and head to ours.
Mines a Martini.
- Albert -...
