Liverpool-based restaurant and bar group GSG Hospitality is set to open a new concept as part of a transformation of the city’s Plaza building.

In partnership with Bruntwood Works, which is embarking on a £3m redesign of the building, GSG will create a social space, including a coffee shop, restaurant, cocktail bar and pop-up retail area.

The concept, which will be revealed next year, will sit alongside a customer lounge and coworking suites on The Plaza’s ground floor.

“We are excited to work in partnership with Bruntwood Works in bringing a brand new experience to the iconic Plaza building,” said Matthew Farrell, GDG co-founder and director.

“The new concept will be a multifaceted offering that will be a welcome addition to the commercial district and also for Bruntwood Works’ customers and the wider community.”

“The Plaza has always had an iconic presence on Liverpool’s skyline and this transformation will not only create a vibrant destination in the heart of the commercial quarter, it will set a new standard for workspace in the city,” added Ciara Keeling, Bruntwood Works CEO.

“It will become one of the most innovative buildings in the North West, provide a first-class hospitality experience with an exciting new food and drink operator, and create a more fitting home for forward-thinking, ambitious businesses across Liverpool.”
