Karina Jadhav – Founder & Owner

Karina Jadhav is the North West’s youngest independent female Restaurant Operator & Owner. She founded her current concept Menagerie Restaurant & Bar, Manchester in August 2016.

Karina is the former co-founder and creator of Neighbourhood, Victors Hale and Southern Eleven. Her latest venture, Menagerie, converges the genres of gastronomy, art and performance, introducing the next level of immersive dining in the North West.


Karina wanted to develop the already successful vibrant dining model she had created. Discarding traditional hospitality rules Karina devised a concept where experience was key at every step of the customer journey. Her vision for Menagerie was to be the first restaurant & bar to provide a collection of experience beyond simply dining and drinking.


The restaurant has garnered international attention for hosting a roster of celebrities including Manchester City first team & Manager Pep Guardiola for their Christmas party, Singer Perrie Edwards (Little Mix), Jake Quickenden, Brooke vincent with stars Louisa Johnson & YXNG Bane performing at the restaurant. Menagerie also sets the scene for the Real Housewives of Cheshire.
