A Grade-II listed building in Liverpool has been given a new lease of life as a boutique hotel with 14 bedrooms.
Lock & Key on Duke Street in the city has now opened and marks a new venture for Liverpool developers Andrew Spencer, Tom Bower and Michael Connolly.
Phase one of the project is now open, with the bar and kitchen welcoming visitors before the 14 bedrooms and main restaurant launch later this year.
The building had been empty for more than a decade before the three partners took over and have spent the last 12 months completely renovating the whole property.
Original features such as the Georgian shop windows have been retained.
Lock & Key’s Andrew Spencer, said: “We are super excited to unveil to Liverpool what we have been working on for the past 12 months and we believe we really are bringing something new to the city and to an already thriving area on Duke Street with the exciting new concept of Lock and Key.”
The bar and kitchen boasts a ‘laid back atmosphere’ with exposed brick walls and contemporary furniture from Lea Sloane, House of Sloane.
The kitchen is headed up by local chef Jennifer Peers while the bar is managed by Sean Connolly.
The bedrooms, due to open at the end of the year, will each be home to a cocktail trolley and the option to personalise your mini bar.
