Grosvenor has announced that New World Trading Company is to open a 7,446 sq ft bar and restaurant in a specially-created pavilion-style building on Liverpool ONE’s Chavasse Park.
The 600-cover Club House, designed by Paul Danson Imagineering, the company behind the Oast House in Manchester’s Spinningfields, will trade from two floors, including a first floor terrace.
The architectural influences are said to be from New England and the Hamptons in the US.
The Club House will contain a permanent grill and barbecue to the front of the new building overlooking the park.
A pavilion building was always planned by Grosvenor for the corner site next to Debenhams in Chavasse Park but the recession and cost overruns put a halt to the plan. Liverpool ONE opened in 2008. The pavilion site has been used for temporary installations, including a pop-up beach in the summer. The Club House will occupy part of the site, the beach will remain next to the new building for now.
The new building has been granted planning permission and work will begin this month ahead of opening later this year.
Miles Dunnett, director of portfolio management at Grosvenor, said: “The Club House is a great new addition to Liverpool ONE’s leisure and dining offer, which is now firmly established as one of the most vibrant in the North West. New World Trading Company has created an exciting casual dining concept with The Club House’s sense of theatre, quality and offer being a perfect fit with its setting on Chavasse Park. When it opens later this year, it will provide something quite unique for visitors.”
New World Trading Company operates The Botanist restaurants in Chester, Alderley Edge, Newcastle, Deansgate Manchester, Birmingham and Trinity Leeds.
Chris Hill, managing director of New World Trading Company, added: “This is a really exciting time for NWTC with The Club House bringing something very new and exciting to Liverpool ONE. Live music every day will set the scene and the atmosphere. Teamed with tasty ‘home comfort’ food, including our signature Hanging Kebabs and an anthology of ales (over 80 beers and ciders to choose from), it will make The Club House unlike anything else in the city in a totally unique setting.”
The announcement coincides with an 11% increase in catering sales at Liverpool ONE and a 2.5% rise in footfall in the year to date.
New World Trading Company is the latest in a series of leading restaurant brands to select Liverpool ONE for new concepts or a first, with Bill’s Restaurant, Côte, Ed’s Easy Diner, Tortilla and TGI Friday’s all opening in the last 12 months.
