JAMMIEST BITS O’JAM*

Back in the day, Prince Albert and his party squad would spend their weekends in grand country retreats and Bohemian Pleasure Palaces. Away from prying eyes and the stresses of royal life. This high level of escapism inspires us all at Alberts Schloss. We believe weekends, Sundays in particular, should be done properly, like our Victorian namesake would have done. Indeed, as he may well have put it “Sundays are for brunching with your chuckaboos and nanty narking with the jammiest bits o’ jam'”

**Victorian Schlossary

Nanty Narking = To have great fun / debauchery. 

Chuckaboo =  A close pal.

The Jammiest Bits O’Jam = Very attractive people.

EARLY REVELLERS…ARISE!

PALACE GATES OPEN AT 10AM FOR PROSECCO ON THE HAUS!

In the spirit of seizing your Sunday. To reward the early day time revellers of Manchester, we are now opening the palace gates at 10am. What’s more, if you join us for food before 2pm your first glass of Prosecco is on the Haus if you book in advance.

VICTORIAN JIVE TALKIN’

To get you in the mood for our palatial Sunday knees up at Albert’s Schloss here are some Victorian phrases that are proper nanty narking. So, don’t be a nose bagger* you’ll soon be ploughing through those *bags of mystery* until your mad as hops*…
