New bar & restaurant to bloom in city

The Old Blind School site to open as a floral fairy tale this month

The Florist, a contemporary new bar and restaurant has announced it will open in Liverpool on April 23, 2018.
Situated on the site of the former Old Blind School pub on Hardman Street, The Florist breathes new life into the Grade II listed building, once home to the Royal School for the Blind. 

With an abundance of flowers flowing throughout the beautiful venue, key features include a stunning entrance hall with two full-size in-bloom trees. There will also be a floral photo-wall, taking centre stage at the top of the grand staircase. Predicted to be the most photographed bar in Liverpool, the unique venue will be a complete transformation and unrecognisable from its previous self. 

Owners promise that from the moment visitors step into The Florist, they will be transported into a fairy tale, thanks to the impressive décor and artwork.
Contemporary artist Gemma Compton and graffiti artist Jody Thomas have also been hand-picked to create bespoke pieces for the new Liverpool site – thanks to the overwhelming reception their previous work received.

General Manager of The Florist, Joel Lee said “The Florist needs be seen to be believed how pretty and light the site has now become. We know it is going to become the place to be in Liverpool and we can’t wait to open.
“We have so much to offer, from the extensive cocktail menu inspired by the three key styles of floristry: English Summer Garden, Ikebana and Modern Contemporary, with herbal twists taken fresh from the garden. 60 hand-picked beers and a vibrant food menu, consisting of mouth-watering deli, rotisserie and grill-inspired dishes, with plenty of gluten free, dairy free and vegan options to cater for all. We will also be open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 9.30am.

“For a really special experience, we are offering sensory enhancing masterclasses in the crafts of cocktails, floristry, gin and ale tastings.”
