Centre Island, the operator of Liverpool’s 62 Castle Street, has brought the man behind local restaurant What’s Cooking in to manage the boutique hotel’s F&B operation.
The restaurant’s owner Guy Lawrenson has invested a six-figure sum into the conversion of a 5000 sq ft space into a new venue at the property, the Liverpool Echo reported.
What’s at Sixty will include a bar and restaurant, private dining room, boardroom and social spaces, and is expected to create 50 jobs.
It will offer a “southern soul” menu, inspired by Memphis and the Deep South of America.
R2 Architecture’s Richard Eastwood has been appointed to design the bar and restaurant spaces.
