Red Dog Saloon Selects Liverpool For Its First Northern Venue

A NEW restaurant serving American Bar-B-Q cuisine is set to create up to 70 jobs in Liverpool as it selects the city for its first northern venue. Red Dog Saloon, whose owners have invested £1.2 million in the new restaurant, will open later this month on the site of former nightclub Republik on Bold Street. Already renowned in London for its fat ribs, buffalo chicken wings, hickory smoked pulled pork and burgers, the company also has restaurants in Nottingham and Southampton. Launched in 2011, Red Dog Saloon prides itself on the quality and provenance of its food, with no binders or fillers in its burgers. The brand only uses the best meat, flavoured with its special rub and cooked low ‘n slow for 18 hours in smokers imported from Oklahoma. The restaurant will open with a brand new menu, which will also feature an extensive selection of cocktails, bottled beers, tequila and bourbon, a bottomless brunch menu and belly-busting food challenges. Owner, Tom Brookes, said: “Liverpool is a fun, energetic city with a thriving independent scene that perfectly reflects Red Dog Saloon’s personality. “We feel we offer something really different to other Bar-B-Q restaurants in the city. We are a family-run business that is passionate about the food we serve and the fun, unpretentious party atmosphere we create for our customers. “Our chefs use original cooking techniques that have been handed down over years, so we really do provide real deal American Bar-B-Q. “We can’t wait for to join Liverpool’s fantastic bar and restaurant scene and see what the city thinks of Red Dog Saloon.” The restaurant is now recruiting for 70 jobs ahead of its opening, including chefs, kitchen staff, bar staff and front-of-house staff, for both full and part-time roles.
