Enter Liverpool’s newest pub – The Club House.
Located in Chavasse Park in Liverpool One, the 600-seat venue offers a taste of New England luxury from its Hamptons-style beach house.
The design revolves around a beautiful bespoke chandelier, consisting of 64 hanging wine glasses.
Chris Hill, Managing Director of Owners of New World Trading Company, said, “We’re all very excited about this. We can’t wait to open the doors. We’ve been planning for two years because we wanted to get something perfect for Liverpool.
“For us, it’s important that every element works – from the design and the menu, to the drinks and of course the service.
“We already have Smugglers Cove on the Albert Dock and there will be some similar elements and some very different ones. It’s a big, bright and beautiful pub and we all can’t wait to show it off.
The team is clear that this is a pub rather than a bar or restaurant – service is at the bar, even for the food, and the portions are large and plentiful.
It was designed under the watchful eye of Paul Danson Imagineering. He says: “First I wanted to develop a building that would be a strong stand-alone design statement and secondly a destination landmark for the city of Liverpool. Not just another chain rollout!
“I thought of a building which had a connection with the proximity of the site to the sea, without conceiving yet another yacht club, with the United Kingdom littered with various shapes and styles, but something romantic and to theme with a great story and strong story line.
After some extensive research and returning to his library of archived vacation photographs, Paul came up with the design for the beach house. “I wanted all the pictures on the walls to look as if the family had just left them hanging and the bandages had been purchased from the family who previously owned the house,” he says. “We believe we have achieved this goal and we are very happy to see what reaction the project will receive. “
Finishes are still underway, but the venue is expected to have a smooth launch from noon Tuesday, preparing for a busy weekend.
