Do you know what it’s like to live as a Manchester millionaire? Maybe you made it as a Premier League footballer, or perhaps you’ve made a few quid on the burgeoning Manchester trading scene?
But how does one find a way to splash the cash in our fair city? If you’ve ever looked at your bank account to discover a seven-figure sum awaiting you but had no idea what to do with it all, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
Forget bingo and a chippy; read on for our definitive guide to rid yourself of your hard-earned reddies with to the greatest luxuries and high-end services Manchester has to offer.
Being lifted everywhere by your henchmen on a four-poster chaise-lounge might sound alright if you’re a Roman Emperor, but tends to look a tad out of place when rocking up to the gates of Old Trafford on a Saturday afternoon for the big game.
So how does a modern millionaire get from A to B, you may wonder? Believe it or not, privately chartered jets are no longer are they the sole preserve of celebrities and presidents… Anyone with the means has the opportunity to charter a business jet through a charter service such as JetApp and kiss goodbye to endless queues, cramped legroom and stingy airline baggage allowances.
With all mod cons included, taking a ride aboard a luxury jet certainly makes the ultimate impression when arriving at your next entrepreneur’s meeting or before signing that transfer deal…
We’re not all born-fashionistas but in the millionaire’s world, it’s important to look the part. If advanced styling techniques such as colour-blocking seem a bit daunting to you (…or if you’re unsure about what ‘colour-blocking’ actually is), one way to find your fashion feet is to entreat the expertise of a personal stylist.
After all, why do it yourself when you can enlist a professional! For a bespoke “world class shopping experience” in one of the UK’s most exclusive department stores, try the Harvey Nichols concierge service.
From showing you around the designer rails at Harvey Nichols and keeping you abreast of the latest fashion and beauty trends to keeping an eye on your coats and bags while you peruse the store, the concierge team are there to take the hassle out of shopping once and for all.
Naturally, this luxury shopping service comes complete with refreshments, complementary gift wrapping and they’ll even book you a facial for afterwards.
Dining and entertainment
Last but not least, what kind of glitzy millionaire life would it be if you didn’t spend your Saturday nights sipping champagne in the VIP section of one of Manchester’s most exclusive clubs?
Fortunately, this old town has plenty of exclusive, top-shelf venues to shield you from the inquisitive gazes of the hoi polloi.
What Manchester lacks in Michelin Stars, it makes up for in celebrity pulling-power. Italian restaurant San Carlo is a known haunt for the rich and famous, having previously hosted the likes of Rihanna, Sir Tom Jones and Russell Crowe.
If Grey Goose and red velvet ropes amid a more up-tempo surrounding is more your thing, then head on over to the Bijou Club for a drink or two in your own private booth to rival Drake’s 2017 concert after-party extravaganza.
