Havelock Building, formerly home to the Cabin nightclub, has been let to live music venue Jimmy’s.
Jimmy’s has signed a 15-year lease on 8,000 sq ft over the basement, ground and first floors, in order to open its first venue in Liverpool.
Fit out work and completion is scheduled in time for a summer opening.
Jimmy’s director George Craig said: “Liverpool’s musical heritage needs no introduction but there’s a clear gap in the market for a venue with our programming focus. Nobody blends indie music with beer and sheer entertainment like we do.
“It’s a perfect location that will suit our customers to a tee. We’ll have great music seven nights a week in the basement, a buzzing bar and restaurant on the ground floor with additional bar, dining and event space on the first.”
Nick Huddleston of CBRE acted on behalf of the landlord, a private individual.
Huddleston said: “The landlord was willing to wait for the right tenant that fitted with the independent vibe of Ropewalks and Chinatown. He’s delighted with the outcome, not least because he’s a bit of a rock music aficionado himself.”
