HIS & HERS HAS JUST HEARD THAT PALM SUGAR, WHICH WAS ONCE ONE OF LIVERPOOL’S MOST POPULAR BARS, IS TO MAKE WAY FOR A NEW THAI BAR AND RESTAURANT.
Thai Leisure Group (TLG), the operator of restaurant brands Thaikhun and Chaophraya, today announced the launch of its Thaikhun Street Bar, Liverpool ONE, the first of its kind.
Opening in early October, the 3,000 sq ft bar will be situated next to Chaophraya, its contemporary Thai dining restaurant overlooking Chavasse Park – a prominent location within Liverpool ONE. The design plans for the new opening pays homage to its Thai roots – the bar’s interior will be designed to recreate a traditional Thai street scene with vibrant décor which will incorporate bric-a-brac, a tuk-tuk and specially selected artefacts, all imported directly from Thailand to create a memorable social experience.
The new concept will serve a menu of upmarket cocktails using select Thai spirits, Singha draught beers, frozen alcoholic cocktails, as well as a non-alcoholic menu including a selection of ice-cream smoothies. The new site will also offer traditional Thai bar snacks and bowls, including pad Thai and chicken satay skewers.
The bar will also host a number of weekend entertainment events, including live music nights and DJ sets.
Kim Kaewkraikhot, founder of Thai Leisure Group, said: “As the first project of its kind, the brand-new bar concept is very exciting for us all. Offering unique Thai experiences is something we’re hugely passionate about and with this fantastic offer, I have no doubt it will succeed.
“Liverpool ONE’s wide range of bars and dining experiences is one of the most comprehensive and compelling in the UK, which made it an easy decision for us to open our very first Thaikhun Street Bar in Liverpool. It demonstrates our continued commitment to be at the forefront of the hospitality sector.”
Alison Clegg, Director, Asset Management, Grosvenor Europe, said: “TLG’s proven success of operations at Liverpool ONE with its existing restaurant, Chaophraya, and the quality of the new concept, makes the new Thaikhun Street Bar a very welcome addition.”
“Their ability to pull together a winning offer and also their willingness to adapt the model to bring something new to Liverpool ONE, sets them apart from the crowd. We are looking forward to the opening and providing even more choice than ever before, which will appeal to residents, workers and visitors alike.”
