The site of the former Living Room and Sugar Hut in Liverpool city centre has been turned into a contemporary restaurant and VIP basement nightclub.

The 15 Group will reopen the Victoria Street location as Dash restaurant and XOXO club following a reported multimillion-pound makeover.

XOXO will be opened on Saturday October 27, with the restaurant due to open a few weeks later in November.

The 15 Group comprises partners, brothers Dean and Michael Jones, Gary Carr and Mark King.

It is the first joint venture for the four who have more than 10 years’ experience operating venues across the city.
