Turtle Bay Announces Second Liverpool Site

TURTLE BAY, the UK’s first high street Caribbean restaurant, is expanding its operation in Liverpool with plans to bring its famous jerk, rum and reggae to a second city centre site. Following the successful launch of its first restaurant on Victoria Street, a second Turtle Bay will open on the city centre’s bustling Hanover Street next month. The restaurant and bar, covering 3,030 sq ft, will seat 138 covers and serve up Turtle Bay’s unique take on Caribbean cuisine. Turtle Bay insertAjith Jayawickrema of Turtle Bay, said: “The response to the opening of our first venue in Liverpool has been incredible, the city has really embraced our ‘one love’ approach so we’re really excited to announce the opening of a second venue. When we heard about the possibility of a site in Liverpool ONE, it was an opportunity we could not turn down.”  The second venue will create a further 50 jobs in the city, generating 110 jobs in total across both sites in the last six months, contributing to both the city’s economy and burgeoning dining scene. Turtle Bay joins Busaba Eathai, Roxy Ballroom, Red’s True BBQ and Wahaca on Hanover Street as part of Liverpool ONE’s expansion. Chris Bliss, Estate Director at Liverpool ONE, added: “We’re looking forward to adding Turtle Bay’s vibrancy to Hanover Street. The new addition will join our ever evolving selection of places to dine in Liverpool ONE as we continue to introduce fresh and exciting venues for our visitors to enjoy.” Turtle Bay, Hanover Street, will officially open its doors to the public on Good Friday, 25th March.
