Vanitas Bar operator Stephen Cliff is launching a new venue, Boujee Restaurant & Bar, at Liverpool One shopping and leisure complex.

Cliff, a property developer who owns Manchester Hall, is due to launch Boujee on 3 December, subject to the lift of lockdown restrictions.

The 9,600 sq ft 250-cover unit is set across two floors, with a family-friendly environment during the day, and an experiential atmosphere in the evening, with sharing plates, sushi, signature cocktails, champagne and signature drinks.

A VIP and private dining space on the upper floor will be available for groups of up to 20 people.

Promising to be the city’s “most Instagrammable” bar and restaurant, Boujee will host a convertible pink car, giant candy area, as well as themed ‘pool party’ and ‘Alice in Boujeeland’ spaces.

The concept is backed by reality television personality Lystra Adams, from Real Housewives of Cheshire.

Cliff is manging director of Vision Developments, the property vehicle backed by Irish investor Morgan Leahy, owner of Manchester’s Barton Arcade.

They own Manchester Hall, formerly the Freemasons Hall, which is home to Vanitas Bar and The Garage pop-up bar.

Vanitas is a 400-capacity late bar and nightclub which launched in 2018, with a ‘rose petal flower wall’, DJs on raised podiums and a private champagne lounge.

Grosvenor Europe is the landlord of Liverpool One.

Boujee joins Italian-American concept restaurant Smoke and Dough and The Club House by New World Trading Company.

Maggie Fu, the Liverpool-based Asian street food restaurant, is set to open on Liverpool One’s Hanover Street in early 2021.

Metis Real Estate Advisors and Savills acted for Liverpool One. Boujee dealt directly.
