Pop-up trend is ‘proof of Liverpool’s vibrant and innovative restaurant scene’

An influx of pop-up eateries is proof of the city’s “interesting, vibrant and innovative” food and drink scene, according to the chair of Liverpool Restaurant Association.

Paul Askew, who is also chef patron of The Art School restaurant, says the current popularity of short-term ventures can only be seen as a positive sign.

Speaking to Your Move about the trend, which appears to be thriving alongside Liverpool’s growing offering of permanent establishments, Paul says: “The fact that we are seeing a lot of pop-up restaurants in the city, with the possibility of more to come, proves we have an interesting, vibrant and innovative scene that they want to be part of.

“I think there’s no better way for new entrants to trial concepts than pop-ups and it adds to the variety of the city’s restaurant scene and that can only be a good thing.”

A five-night Wreckfish restaurant pop-up is currently underway in Liverpool, where the likes of travelling eatery Xiringuito is also still temporarily residing.

Meanwhile additional short-term food and drink projects have also been announced this week, including the forthcoming Disco & Dinner and Oktopus.

For an in-depth look at why the concept is proving such a hit with the city’s diners and culinary experts alike, check out our Pop-Up Popularity feature in the latest issue of Your Move.
