Nightcap to open first Liverpool venue this year

Bar operator Nightcap is set to open its first venue in Liverpool later this year.

The owner of The Cocktail Club, the Adventure Bar Group and the Barrio Familia group of bars, is launching its Tonight Josephine brand at Hanover Street.

The site covers approximately 7,893 sq ft split across a ground floor entrance, basement and lower basement with a capacity of 350.

This latest opening will be the first for the group in Liverpool and the second new site for the Tonight Josephine brand in recent weeks, following the successful opening in Cardiff last week and is the sixth site for the brand in total.

It takes the total number of sites within the Adventure Bar Group to 11.

Nightcap now has 32 sites within its estate and a further 24 premises under offer or in legal negotiations for all of its brands as it “continues to see favourable market conditions for site acquisitions across the UK.”

Sarah Willingham, CEO of Nightcap, said: “The Tonight Josephine brand is ready to continue its rapid roll-out across the UK.

“We opened in Birmingham, Clapham and most recently launched in Cardiff, with several sold out events and evenings from the outset.”

“All of these sites have traded very well since opening and we now cannot wait to start trading our sixth Tonight Josephine in Liverpool.”
