Native Manchester and DUCIE STREET WAREHOUSE has made a wave of new appointments to mark the re-launch of its stunning space at the Grade-II listed Victorian building in the heart of Manchester’s city centre.
The new appointment includes Takis Melitsiotis, who’s experience springs from lifestyle and luxury properties within Marriott and Hilton Hotels, for the new role of General Manager at Native Manchester. He will be responsible in overseeing the 166-luxury-aparthotels, from studio to a palatial two-bedroom duplex penthouse.
Also making up the wider Manchester operations team at DUCIE STREET WAREHOUSE are F&B Operations Director, Mark Clinton, previously General Manager at The Refuge by Volta, and the new Programming and Events Manager, Nathan Wrigglesworth. These appointments will support the new conception which will see DUCIE STREET WAREHOUSE repositioning itself in the city.
The all-day kitchen and bar have also appointed Andrew Green as the new Head Chef at DUCIE STREET WAREHOUSE. The well-seasoned chef has worked at some of the most prestigious hotels and restaurants, including The Lowry hotel, where he achieved a Double AA Rosette recognition.
With a brand-new team and fresh approach to re-launch DUCIE STREET WAREHOUSE, Mark Clinton, F&B Operations Director, comments:
“There is so much potential for us to explore in this remarkable space. It’s an exciting time to be part of the team, as we look forward to re-launching and gradually opening the space, in line with the Government’s roadmap plan. We are very keen to bring this space alive and really connect with the city through our programming and offerings.”

“This exciting opportunity has enabled us to bring together two of the most impressive spaces in Manchester; our luxury serviced apartments, Native, and our vibrant and social DUCIE STREET WAREHOUSE which will unveil its lively new south-facing terrace – accessible for both guests at Native and locals alike to enjoy.”
