Graffiti Spirits, the Liverpool based restaurant and bar operator, is looking to get a foothold in Birmingham after teaming with experiential concept Ghetto Golf to launch in the city.

Graffiti is bringing its Slim’s Pork Chop Express concept to Birmingham, which combines American barbecue and Chinese cuisine.

The move is also Ghetto Golf’s first move outside its Liverpool base when it opens in the Custard Factory, Gibb Street, in October.

Graffiti co-founder Matt Farrell told MCA the group was keen to expand in Birmingham and build on its partnership with Ghetto Golf.

He said: “It’s an area that definitely interests us to expand. There is a lot happening in Birmingham and it reminds us of how Liverpool and Manchester were before the boom.”

Slim’s Pork Chop Express has one other site in Seel Street, Liverpool, with its Salt Dog Slims Steins & Brines next door.

The Slim’s BBQ Express in Birmingham will serve brisket pots, burgers, chicken, waffles, and Lo Pan Fries.

Ghetto Golf has an adult-focussed 18-hole mini golf experience, with cocktail bar and DJs, and is inspired by street art.

Farell added: “We are really exited to expand the brand and team up with Ghetto Golf. We are pound of our restaurant and this brand in particular and welcome the opportunity for the rest of the UK to start trying some of our dishes.

“The partnership offers a great window to provide a quality addition to the Birmingham food scene and we hope to continue this collaboration towards more sites in the future.”
