Since undergoing an extensive transformation, Liverpool Grand Central, Renshaw Street has drip-fed us parts of its new look and foodie offering. Now, the huge project is complete and ready to take on 2019 with brand new vendors, events and stunning additions to its hotel offering too.
More than just a night out venue, Liverpool Grand Central boats a three-floor food bazaar, the Great Hall – a former theatre space with bars and performance space, a 47-room hotel and not one, but two bars offering everything from Scouse House to Liverpool jazz, all under one iconic roof.
With the renovations complete, we caught up with Ryan to find out more about what each essential part of Liverpool Grand Central has in store for 2019.
The former Quiggins space at Grand Central has retained a lot of its quirkiness but make no mistake, Grand Central Food Bazzar as it’s now known, is a totally unique venue. Watch above as we meet the vendors. The three-floor open plan dining room plays host to 12 different foodie vendors alongside a brand new tequila bar and entertainment space. New for 2019, Liverpool Jazz Club will be performing every Thursday from 8pm and Sunday’s from 5pm providing the perfect soundtrack to your Sunday dining experience.
March 2019 will see a new wave of food businesses move into the space and the team at Grand Central want to hear from you.
Ryan said: “what we’re really keen to do if give young entrepreneurs their first opportunity, so we’re keen to hear from anyone looking to make a start in the industry.”
Grand Food Bazaar is open Wednesday to Sunday. To check out what’s on the menu at Grand Central Food Bazaar, head this way.
Grand Central Hall has to be seen to be believed. This former Victorian theatre space is available to hire for private celebrations or events and can seat up to 1200 people. Since opening its doors, Grand Central Hall has played host to weddings, concerts, live sport on the big screen, conferences and more.
Kicking off in March 2019, Grand Central Hall is bringing cabaret back to the masses with themed, family-friendly gatherings. ‘Sunday at The Gran’d is the latest addition to a popular programme of events launched by the venue. The themed dinner show will provide opportunity for all the family to enjoy a Sunday roast and live entertainment in the iconic domed theatre.
Ryan said: “From 10th March 2019 we’re starting a massive cabaret production, every week will be completely different, the first one is The Greatest Showman. There’ll be singing waiters, lots of dancing and of course a lovely Sunday roast to go with it, al for just £22.50!”
That’s not all, big name acts such as Paul Young and Lily Allen heading to Grand Central Hall in 2019 too. Check out the full list of events here.
With all manner of amazing food, entertainment and family-friendly events taking place, you could say Liverpool Grand Central is already a full package, but there’s more! The ground floor of the building also houses not one, but two bars. Bar Racine – which in our humble opinion might be the city’s most beautiful hidden gem and the psychedelic, always loud, always bouncing, Barcelona.
If drinks in a typical Parisian bar are out of your reach, look no further than Bar Racine. Having just undergone a seating re-fit due to popularity, this stunning, art deco bar plays host to Soul Jam nights and is seriously a contender for the most Instagrammable bar in the city.
Barcelona is a much loved name and venue in the city. Karaoke on Fridays and Sundays is loud, the tunes are jumping and you’re guaranteed a night to remember.
Grand Central Hotel is the perfect location to base yourself for a visit to the city. Already a big hit, the hotel is now officially complete thanks to the addition of 6 brand new deluxe rooms which bring the wow factor to Renshaw Street.
The new rooms also add that bit of luxury for couples celebrating their wedding at the venue or even just for a special date night. Check out the Grand Central Hotel here and get planning your next stay.
