Castle St Townhouse To Open Its Doors This Summer

LIVERPOOL’S bustling commercial district is set to welcome yet another new restaurant as Castle St Townhouse opens this summer. The Grade II listed building, formerly occupied by GT Law, is being transformed into a multi-level eatery and bar by Warrington based interior design and architecture firm, DV8 Designs. To include a grand opulent bar and raised seating areas, the new venue owned by Circo director Jason McNeill, will pay homage to its historic surroundings while ‘adding character and urban charm’. Jason said: “Over the past decade the city’s landscape has changed dramatically, whereby areas such as the business district have evolved to become more than just a corporate workplace, which is why we decided to open in the heart of Castle Street. “We hope that the new venue will receive a great response from Liverpool locals and those traveling from further afield due to our novel brunch and lunch offerings, extensive drinks list and chic design.” Managing Director of DV8 Designs Lee Birchall added: “In order to preserve the rich heritage and history of the Castle Street building, it is important that the venue remains true to its roots. With this in mind we will keep many of the building’s original columns, while rearranging the entrance area to create a central focal point that showcases the full length of the space. “By combining a series of modern decors and a playful design throughout the building, the overall object is to carry out a restoration that suits the originality of the building and its setting, in addition to incorporating a grandeur feel.”
