Marine Point

Marine Point signs American restaurant

Restaurateur Keith Gurney is to open a new American-style restaurant at Neptune Development's £60m Marine Point complex in New Brighton.

The 150-seat Brooklyn's restaurant is the first of what Keith Gurney, creator of the Tavern Co bar and grill, hopes will grow into a mainstream brand in the North West.

He plans to roll out three more in the region over a three-year period. He already operates two Tavern Co bar and grill restaurants in Liverpool.

Gurney has agreed a 25-year lease with Liverpool-based Neptune at an annual rent of £110,000 and invested £800,000 in the new outlet which will open on December 2.

Morrisons and Home Bargains have both opened in the past month at Marine Point and an eight-screen cinema operated by The Light will open on Saturday.

Neptune is also due to handover a 25,000 sq ft casino to Grosvenor and is in talks with three national restaurant operators.

Gurney said: "Neptune has revitalised New Brighton waterfront, transforming it into a first class leisure and retail attraction for all ages."

Daniel Hynd, Neptune's property director, said: "We are very pleased to welcome Brooklyn's to our Marine Point development, further enhancing the retail and leisure mix on offer for people of all ages. It is an exciting brand and a perfect fit for Marine Point and wider New Brighton.

"Brooklyn's will benefit from the trade already generated by the bowling alley and theatre, as well as the hugely anticipated cinema which is set to open at around the same time."
