Grosvenor has announced two new restaurant openings at Liverpool ONE, welcoming authentic Greek concept, The Real Greek, and artisan cocktail bar and restaurant, The Botanist. The openings mark two new city debuts for Liverpool ONE, joining the destination’s line-up of leading names in hospitality.

Joining Liverpool ONE’s Paradise Street, The Real Greek’s 3,900 sq ft restaurant caters to 162 diners inside and 38 outside. The space has been fitted out in The Real Greek’s signature style, with blue and white accents throughout and a range of Mediterranean-inspired art and photography. Bringing quintessential Greek dining to Liverpool, The Real Greek serves cold and hot meze, Souvlaki Wraps and Greek salads, as well as sweet Greek treats such as Baklava.

Launching its popular restaurant and bar concept in Liverpool for the first time, The Botanist is a new addition to Liverpool ONE’s leisure terrace on Chavasse Park, joining Loretta’s Parkside Tavern and the soon to open Flight Club city flagship. The 6,400 sq ft restaurant features the brand’s carefully curated food menu ranging from lighter dishes such as salads and noodles, to classic bar meals of steaks, fish & chips, and burgers. As well as unique, crafted cocktails, visitors to The Botanist can expect live music and an exciting atmosphere, with a terrace that opens on to the park.

Rob Deacon, Director of Asset Management at Grosvenor, said: “Liverpool ONE continues to be the destination of choice for popular and established UK brands to launch in the city. The Real Greek and The Botanist each offer something a little different, and that’s reflective of our strategy to ensure a diverse range of food, entertainment and leisure opportunities at the destination, providing more choice for the sustained demand we have seen at Liverpool ONE.”

Sandro Spahiu, Managing Director at The Real Greek, added: “Located in the heart of bustling Liverpool ONE, this new restaurant is our first launch of 2024, outlining our ever-growing popularity and continued desire to serve up contemporary Aegean dining experiences across the country. The demand for Greek cuisine has been strong in the UK, and we’re delighted to bring a taste of our authentic food to the people of Liverpool.”

The announcement follows the news that Liverpool ONE has seen its strongest start to a year in more than half a decade, with a 9% increase in visitor numbers during the first three weeks of January 2024 versus 2023. This performance is enhanced by the positive impact that anchor leisure brand, Gravity MAX, has had on wider footfall and spend  at Liverpool ONE, following the transformation of the former Debenhams.
