Tapas Revolution set to be unveiled at city centre site

Spanish Restaurant Group, which acquired the Queen Square La Tasca site in Liverpool last year, will be relaunching the Tapas Bar & Restaurant as its Tapas Revolution offering early next month (November 2021).

Tapas Revolution aims to bring authentic Spanish tapas, large sharing plates, sangria and cocktails to the popular Queen square location and while the menu will stay true to traditional, authentic tapas, the look and concept is reminiscent of airy, modern day Barcelona or Ibiza.

Offering an all-day dining experience, the 130-seater venue will also feature a ‘Spanish Terraza’ for more than 100 people to enjoy alfresco dining.

Tapas Revolution has already employed 30 staff to work at the Liverpool restaurant-bar, from front of house to the kitchen, management, and bar positions.

Executive chef, Omar Allibhoy, who led the menu development and has appeared on the Sunday Brunch, This Morning and Saturday Kitchen TV shows, has created a mouth-watering menu.

The Liverpool site is the latest in the expansion of the Spanish Restaurant Group, which already serves its unique brand of Spanish cuisine in cities including Brighton, Bath and Birmingham.

Since opening its first Tapas Revolution bar and restaurant at Westfield Shepherd’s Bush in 2010, the concept has gone from strength to strength with its selection of tapas, vino and cervezas bringing tastes typical of those found in cities and villages across Spain.

Omar Allibhoy said: “Since opening the first Tapas Revolution restaurant back in 2010, the brand continues to grow from strength to strength and we’re delighted to now open our 10th restaurant here in Liverpool. The opening of the new restaurant provides a welcome boost to the local hospitality sector and we’re truly excited to see what the future holds for Tapas Revolution.”

James Picton, managing director of Spanish Restaurant Group, said: “We are incredibly proud and excited to continue to grow Tapas Revolution with the launch of our Liverpool bar and restaurant following the success and overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received since reopening our current locations and our newly-opened Brighton and Lakeside restaurants.

“La Tasca, at its peak, had over 80 locations and was a much loved and sought after brand within the sector. We are currently reviewing options and formats for the La Tasca brand of the future.

“This does, however, mark the end of an era for the La Tasca in its current format with Liverpool being the final location to be converted and refurbished since we acquired the brand in 2020.”
