We Built This City / Manc 12: Karina Jadhav - Manchester's Vibrant Diner
Manchester is a city that thinks a table is for dancing on – and our latest guest has only gone and made it compulsory!
Founder of Menagerie and Neighbourhood, Karina Jadhav has been a maker of memories for over a decade in Manchester, and she’s ready for the good times to roll back in.
We Built This City is a series of conversations with some of the amazing Mancunians - born, bred or adopted – who put the heart into modern Manchester. A celebration of the human grit, determination and love found throughout the city, these episodes will lift you up, make you laugh and inspire you to leave our city in a better place.

Starting her career as a journalist, Karina never quite realised her passion for the hospitality sector until she began working with her ex-partner at Neighbourhood. She knew people were hungry for something different, and she was ready to provide the goods.
Following a divorce and an emotional farewell to the bar she helped make famous, Karina decided to go on her own food and drink tasting roadshow across the US – a trip that inspired the launch of her own restaurant, Menagerie. And, well, the rest is history.
In this episode we discuss the importance of family, of building yourself back up when you’ve been knocked down, and the secrets of running a successful business.

Your host, Lisa Morton, started PR company Roland Dransfield in 1996, one month after the fateful IRA bomb that tore apart the city centre. From that point, the business, and its team members, have been involved in helping to support the creation of Modern Manchester – across regeneration, business, charity, leisure and hospitality, sport and culture.
To celebrate the 24 years that Roland Dransfield has spent creating these bonds, Lisa is gathering together some of her Mancunian ‘family’ and will be exploring how they have created their own purposeful relationships with the best city in the world.
