Bobo offers summer menu update

BOBO, Liverpool’s only authentic Iberian bar is celebrating its new ‘sunshine’ look, with an updated wine and food menu.

Now with a bright Spanish lemon frontage, BoBo’s wine list is equally summery and promotes the best of Spain and Portugal’s finest wine producers from foggy, rainswept Galician Northern Spain to steamy Andalucia in the south, to Portugal’s Douro Valley.

The new list features seven red, seven white and two rosé wines, alongside three superb examples of Prosecco. The wines from Europe’s western border with the Atlantic Ocean encompass a unique set of characteristics, strongly influenced by the climate and the region’s unique terroir.

Working with leading-UK independent wine supplier East Street Wines, BoBo owners, Liverpool’s Lucky Penny Group have selected wines that not only tell the story of the rich history of wine making in the Iberian Peninsula, but also offer a tantalising taste of contemporary Spain and Portugal at fantastic prices.

At the same time, the wine list of BoBo’s sister bar, Abditory on Queen Avenue between Castle Street and Dale Street, has also been refreshed and it now serves 10 wines from nine different countries. Both bars now also have extended food menus.

Josh Moore, of Lucky Penny Group, said: “We’ve just redecorated the outside of BoBo for the sunnier weather and we wanted this splash of colour to be reflected in a wine list that stands out just as much. There is a reason behind every wine on the new list and East Street Wines have advised with their incredible knowledge and expertise. The choices each have a story, they are very approachable and easy to drink and offer good value for money and are also all served by the glass allowing people to try as many as they like.

“We are trying to break down stuffy barriers around wine lists with our new approach which is reflected also in our fun and informal monthly wine tastings. Each wine comes with a flavour profile from the weird and wonderful to the tongue in cheek. We’ve focused on relatable flavours and places easily recalled and our customers are really engaging a lot more and sales have increased.”

All these wines and more can be tried in generous portions at BoBo’s relaxed and informative monthly Wine Club, which takes place on the first Thursday of the month, lasting two hours from 6pm, price £25, with the next two being June 2nd and July 7th.
