Future Flannels Liverpool store to have three restaurants

The six-storey department store in the Owen Owen Building will have an Italian restaurant, rooftop brasserie, and a Pan-Asian eatery – as well as a bar.

The restaurants are the creations of Zanna Hospitality Group, which has a dynamic eatery portfolio including Evelyn’s Café Bar, Mughli Charcoal Pit, and Gooey.

“We’ve been looking to open in Liverpool for a while now, it’s such a vibrant city with an exciting food and drink scene that we’ve always wanted to be part of,” said Sax Arshad, managing director of Zanna.

“This unique space has given us the opportunity to bring not just one but four new concepts to the city,” he continued. “Each of our spaces will offer something slightly different – from a workspace to a late-night party venue, they’ll be something for everyone and we cannot wait to open the doors later this year and welcome the city in.”

Bacino, a modern Italian restaurant, will be the first to open. Starting this summer, it will take up part of the ground floor of Flannels. Bacino will offer an all-day menu, with pizza, pasta, cocktails, coffees and desserts.

Hungry patrons will be able to travel to the sixth floor to indulge in the other culinary delights. These venues, which are set to open in the autumn, will have their own separate entrance and will be open beyond just the store’s hours.

Expect a menu filled with fresh sashimi at the new, unnamed Pan-Asian restaurant. The venue will also offer meats cooked on a charcoal robata grill and a variety of Asian-inspired dishes.

Brunch will be the name of the game at the future brasserie, which will have a variety of small plates as well as coffee, cocktails and wine.

The rooftop bar will feature classic and modern cocktails on its menu, as well as wine and beer. DJs will perform every weekend.

Flannels is set to open this summer for business. It is located on the site of the former 120,000 sq ft Owen Owen department store off Parker Street. Argent Design has spearheaded Flannels’ efforts to transform the building.

In addition to the three restaurants, bar and traditional department store offerings, Flannels will also have a Barry’s Bootcamp studio.

This will be an excellent addition to the city’s retail offer. It’s one area of the city’s economic performance that has recovered strongly, post-pandemic. Well done.

Quite the number of restaurant additions coming through in recent weeks to add to the already vibrant scene. This, Capeech with its first venture outside of London, Zenn, Goucho, Hawksmoor, Albert Schloss and the yet to be confirmed operator for ground floor of the Martins Bank redevelopment, Manifest just opened in the Baltic. Great stuff.

Great use of this building.

Look forward to seeing it. An underused iconic building for a few years now.

Hats off to Mike Ashley on this one, I know he`s not liked much in Newcastle but we should be bowing down to him for this class act, a grand old department store resurrected, in style, to provide for the fashion and leisure whims of a younger clientele.
Maybe others in that immediate locality will take note and up their offering eg St Johns Market.
