Meet the Atlas Team



The Owners

Mark and Elaine took over Atlas in 2012 with a vision to create a Cafe, Bar and Gin Saloon in Manchester. Five years later and with over 420 different gins, to offer, that's certainly what they have done! In addition they have completed a full refurbishment of the bar, inside and out, which has proven to be a true labour of love.


The Team

Patrick, Francesca, Naomi, Kayle, Oliver and Chloe.

With one main aim - to make Atlas the very best place to drink, explore the world of gin and dine - our team bring great experience and dedication to the bar.

Patrick, our General Manager, brought a wealth of Hospitality Management expertise with him, when he joined us from Per Tutti Manchester. He leads the bar, day to day, ensuring that our team deliver the best standards for our customers, at all times.

Keeping it in the family, daughter Francesca is the events, marketing and administrative brains of the operation, who also makes a mean Mojito! 

Naomi has an unrivalled passion for gin and is always willing to share it! Her excitement when a new gin arrives on the bar is a sight to see.

If there is a gin which you think we should add to our collection, then Kayle is your man! He is our Bar Manager and has worked his way up through the ranks.

Again, keeping it in the family, son Oliver is the man behind our Gin Masterclasses. Both he and Amy, help you to explore the world of gin, either here, in your home, or a venue of your choice, with our mobile bar.

Chloe is our newest Manager and you will see her running our weekday breakfast and lunchtimes, where we have gained a large regular following.

We are extremely proud of our wider team, many of whom are becoming amazing gin ambassadors. They all work very hard, in order to make every one of your visits to Atlas Bar, enjoyable.

We hope that you'll come and visit us soon......

Make sure you say hello, when you do!
