The importance of hospitality spaces within urban regeneration processes has remained largely overlooked in current urban discourse; and this is in spite of the dramatic physical transformation of cities over the past fifteen years - alongside recorded increases of hospitality spaces which are central. This study examines key themes underpinning UK urban regeneration policies over the past decade – urbanisation, gentrification, post-modern consumption, place promotion, and sanitisation; and considers practical implications derived from the presence and provision of hospitality spaces alongside these themes - in terms of their capacity to contribute to the establishment of urban spatial quarters of differentiation and of standardisation specifically. Two urban quarters of Manchester [UK] provide the cases for this ethnographic research study, whose presence of contrasting typologies of hospitality spaces could be said to have respectively exemplified these outcomes. The study concludes that hospitality spaces have played crucially important roles within processes of urban regeneration, and are increasingly central to the creation of urban quarters
