• Wahaca, Liverpool

Restaurants take shape at former Stocktons store

Mexican political street artists will decorate the walls of Liverpool’s new Wahaca restaurant ahead of its opening, the popular chain has announced.

The Mexican eatery is one of two restaurant’s currently progressing towards opening at the city centre’s former Stocktons Furniture store in Liverpool ONE, and is aiming to launch at the end of November.

Ahead of its arrival in the city, a spokesperson for Wahaca says: “The restaurant will be decorated by Mexican political street artists from Oaxaca City Lapiztola, so we are very excited about that. This will bring a unique Mexican feel to the Liverpool Restaurant.”

The brand will also be building up a presence in Liverpool prior to its restaurant opening, as it will be contributing with a grand finale piñata at St George’s Hall’s !Vamos! Liverpool Day of the Dead event on 31 October.

The extravaganza will bring a host of Mexican street food and entertainment to the iconic city landmark.

Red’s branding is now on show at its forthcoming Liverpool restaurant

Meanwhile restaurant chain Red’s True Barbecue is also counting down to its opening within a Hanover Street facing unit at the former Stocktons site.

With branding now covering the windows of the forthcoming restaurant and a recruitment drive for kitchen and serving announced, Red’s has revealed it will be opening on 27 November.

James Douglas, co-founder at Red’s True Barbecue, says: “The Liverpool church of True Barbecue is shaping up nicely and it’s set to be our most outlandish Red’s to date. In just over seven weeks we’ll fling open the doors to the good people of Liverpool – we can’t wait. We’ve started to recruit for all positions which will mean creating around 60 new jobs in the city which is great news.

“As ever with our launches there will be plenty of opportunities to get involved and try the food before we officially open, so make sure to keep an eye on our website and social channels. A true barbecue Christmas is coming early for Liverpool!”
