Pub Invest Group, the Liverpool-based pub and club operator, has taken on the former Walkabout in the city to launch under a new brand.

The currently 16-strong group will launch Einstein Bier Haus later this month in the Concert Square site where Walkabout operated for 20 years until shutting its doors in November.

Pub Invest Group venues include McCooleys, SOHO, Level, Black Rabbit, Brooklyn Mixer, Peacock, Fusion, Blind Tiger, Smokey Moe’s and Rubber Soul.

There are currently 25 Walkabouts operating across the country.
