Head of Steam returning to Liverpool
The Head of Steam brand is returning to Liverpool.
Hartlepool-based Camerons Brewey, which owns the chain of pubs, has announced its next opening will be on Hanover Street at the site currently trading as The Abbey.
Work is due to get underway in August, with the new pub due to open at the end of September.
Chris Soley, chief executive at Camerons, says the city centre venue will be a “very different proposition to the previous Head of Steam” which formerly traded at Lime Street station.
Bar Soba plans Cabin Club opening before year is out
Bar and restaurant chain Bar Soba hopes to open in the famous Cabin Club before the end of the year.
The Scottish company, which was first launched as a pop-up restaurant at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, currently has five sites across Glasgow, Edinburgh and Leeds serving up cocktails and Asian street food.
Exactly what Bar Soba is proposing for the building opposite St Luke’s Church is still yet to be confirmed.
New food operator on the horizon at Albert Dock
A new café or restaurant could soon be heading to Albert Dock.
The dock’s owner, Aberdeen Asset Management, has been granted permission by Liverpool City Council to change the use of two vacant shops from retail to café/restaurant space.
The changes are part of a five to 10-year vision to revitalise the dock’s retail and leisure offer and provide a ‘distinct and diverse’ food offering alongside an ‘evolving retail’ concept.
The plans aim to attract greater engagement from local visitors and drive more footfall to the dock outside of weekends.
