Huge Flannels Liverpool department store will have three restaurants and a rooftop bar

A huge new Flannels department store is opening in Liverpool this summer with three restaurants and a rooftop bar.

The Flannels Liverpool store announcement was first made in 2020. Today it was revealed that as well as buying luxury fashion, leisurewear, sportswear and beauty shop, customers can wine and dine at the store based at the old Owen Building.

The new Flannels store will span six floors and offer “retail and leisure under one roof”, with a variety of brands, restaurants and experiences available. It will include four locations open from dawn until late, creating a new dining destination in the city center.

Bacino will be based on the ground floor and serve customers modern Italian cuisine in a setting that “exudes personality”. There will be an all-day menu offering brunch, pizza, pasta, cocktails, coffees and desserts in a relaxing setting.

Three additional sites will open on the sixth floor this fall, including one Rooftop brasserie, bar and pan-Asian restaurant. These places will have a view of the city and will have their own entrance. Open outside of store hours, customers can “drink, work, congregate and party” late into the night.

Bacino will serve a variety of dishes and cocktails.

The brasserie will serve brunch, small plates and a mix of classic dishes as well as cocktails, coffee and wine. The Pan-Asian restaurant will feature an open kitchen where diners can watch chefs create Asian-inspired dishes that are “both daring and reimagined”. The restaurant is inspired by some of the “most famous places” in the world and is set in an “intimate, sensual and lively space”.

The rooftop bar will serve a mix of expertly crafted modern and classic cocktails, as well as a select wine and beer list. The space is designed for daytime get-togethers, after-work aperitifs, and late-night parties, with DJs every weekend and special events throughout the year.

Flannels locations will be created and operated by Zanna Hospitality Group – the brand behind some of the North West’s most beloved restaurants including Evelyn’s Café Bar, Gooey, Mughli Charcoal Pit, Les Deux Pizza Bar, Arlo’s, The Daisy and more . Sax Arshad, MD of Zanna Group, said: “We’ve been looking to open in Liverpool for a while now, it’s such a vibrant city with an exciting food and drink scene that we’ve always wanted to be a part of.

“This unique space has given us the opportunity to bring not just one but four new concepts to the city. Each of our spaces will offer something slightly different – from a workspace to a place to party late at night, they will be something for everyone and we can’t wait to open the doors later this year and welcome the city.” Flannels Liverpool will open in the city this summer.
