Tempest set to create a storm in city’s hospitality sector

Tempest on Tithebarn

A new venue in Liverpool’s vibrant bars and restaurants portfolio is opening following an initial £250,000 investment.

Tempest on Tithebarn opens from midday this Friday and across the Bank Holiday weekend, then fully officially from Tuesday, June 1.

Bucking the trend and the challenges that the hospitality industry has endured during the past 15 months, Tempest on Tithebarn is set to be one of Liverpool’s foremost social destinations, a city centre hotspot offering several distinct spaces and a multitude of music, events and get-togethers, say the owners.

The project, helmed by the owner of the iconic bar and eaterie Ma Boyle’s, Iain Hoskins, harks to New York’s meatpacking district venues, focusing heavily on brunches, lunches, cocktails and craft beer, stone walls and bare wood with lots of natural lighting feature in the ground floor open plan restaurant and bar, to the intimate subterranean club space with huge potential for parties, to one of the city’s best roof-top views – 10 storeys high – which looks out across Liverpool with incredible views in all directions.

Demand for the multi-space venue for private parties, events and weddings is already high, said Hoskins.

He said: “We, of course, can’t wait to open our doors and show just how lovely the building here is.

“Myself and the team are all raring to go. It’s a pivotal moment for us being able to open, and for the whole city which has been booming over the last few weeks al fresco and now being able to serve inside, too.

“We feel we have got something different to offer everyone across our breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, through to music and events including our jazz festival in the summer.

“This has been reflected in the bookings we have already got in the coming weeks and months. And as a place to come to for after work drinks, a night out, to catch up with family and friends – we can do it all here, we cover the early risers to the late finishers and everyone in between.”
