The team behind some of Liverpool’s top bars have embarked on plans to open a “rodizio pizzeria” in a landmark building in the city’s business district.
After submitting plans to Liverpool City Council, Santa Maluco is expected to open in January after a transformation of the Grade II listed building in Castle Street which was most recently a Starbucks.
It will be the sixth venue from Graffiti Spirits Group which operates city centre bars Santa Chupitos, El Bandito, Salt Dog Slims, 81 Ltd and “smokehouse and cocktails” venue Slim’s Pork Chop Express.
Director Matthew Farrell, who is pictured left with fellow director John Ennis, said: “Thankfully, we’ve been able to reach agreement on this landmark Grade II listed building which will add a layer of fresh, unconventional independence in the form of Santa Maluco, a rodizio pizzeria.
“We know from feedback amongst our target audience too that the business district is crying out for what we’ve been offering guests on the L1 circuit.”
