Meatliquor, the restaurant specialising in top-quality street food and cocktails, is to continue expanding in the UK with plans for a new site in Bristol.

Founders Yianni Papoutsis and Scott Collins, who opened the original Meatliquor in London in 2011, will open their first west of England site in Stokes Croft, north of Bristol city centre, in April this year.

It will be the sixth permanent site for the group, joining Meatliquor near Oxford Street, Meatmarket in Covent Garden, Meatmission in Hoxton, Meatliquor in Brighton and Meatliquor in Leeds (pictured), which opened in September last year.

The new Meatliquor will take its inspiration from Bristol’s artistic roots with an interior illuminated with graffiti designs from Bristol-born street artist Inkie.

The ever-evolving menu will feature “daring yet delicious” dishes including the signature Dead Hippie Burger, Bingo Wings slathered in house-made buffalo hot pepper sauce, Chilli Cheese Fries and Deep-Fried Pickles – crunchy on the outside and sweet within.

Vegetarians can enjoy a range of new vegetarian and vegan dishes, as well as classics such as the popular Halloumi and Mushroom Burger. As with the other sites, it will have a strong emphasis on good-quality drinks, including original cocktails and twisted classics developed with leading consultancy Soulshakers.

Commenting on the new opening, co-founders Scott Collins and Yianni Papoutsis said in a statement: “Expanding into an area that has such a well-known appreciation for street food and its rich artistic heritage is perfect for Meatliquor. We’re excited to embark on this journey.”
