Most of us know what it’s like to be in the doghouse after one too many on a night out. But there’s no shame to be had in going properly large at this new hotel in Manchester. The DogHouse – yep, that’s its actual name – is the latest opening from independent beer makers BrewDog and it’s got all the trappings of a Very Fun Time.

Founded in 2007, BrewDog has gone from small local brewery to global brand, and they’ve now started opening craft beer-themed hotels in cities from Edinburgh to Columbus, Ohio. But the new one in Manchester could be their most impressive yet.

Best of all, for some reason, the shower in every room comes complete with a craft beer fridge, should you find yourself thirsty as you spruce up. Guests can dine on the rooftop bar, where there’s a taco hut and ten beer taps, or order hot dogs 24 hours a day.

On the hotel’s exterior, meanwhile, a living wall of 26,000 plants supports BrewDog’s efforts to become the world’s ‘most sustainable drinks brand’. And if you’re worried those fine craft ales might get you a new beer belly? Worry not, as complimentary gym passes and free bike hire come included in the price.
