The Florist Liverpool, a contemporary new bar and restaurant, has opened its doors on Hardman Street. Situated on the site of the former Old Blind School pub, The Florist breathes new life into the stunning Grade II listed building, once home to the Royal School for the Blind.
With an abundance of flowers flowing throughout the venue, key features include a stunning entrance hall with two full-size in-bloom trees. There’s also a floral photo-wall at the top of the grand staircase.
Contemporary artist Gemma Compton and graffiti artist Jody Thomas have also been hand-picked to create bespoke pieces for the new Liverpool site – thanks to the overwhelming reception their previous work received. Harmonious with The Florist brand, their work aims to create a sensory experience to enchant the senses.
The Florist is a stay all day and night hang out, offering customers a vibrant food menu, a spectacular menu of instagrammable cocktails, nightly DJ’s and saxophonists to take the tempo up to a sophisticated party atmosphere.
General Manager of The Florist, Joel Lee says: “The Florist needs be seen to be believed how pretty and light the site has now become. We know it is going to become the place to be in Liverpool and we can’t wait to open.
“We have so much to offer, from the extensive cocktail menu inspired by the three key styles of floristry: English Summer Garden, Ikebana and Modern Contemporary, with herbal twists taken fresh from the garden. 60 hand-picked beers and a vibrant food menu, consisting of mouth-watering deli, rotisserie and grill-inspired dishes, with plenty of gluten free, dairy free and vegan options to cater for all. We will also be open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 9.30am.
“For a really special experience, we are offering sensory enhancing masterclasses in the crafts of cocktails, floristry, gin and ale tastings.”
