Party and destination brand opens first Tonight Josephine venue in the North
Cocktail bar and party destination brand, Tonight Josephine, has opened its first venue in the North of England.
The brand, part of The Adventure Bar Group owned by Nightcap, has come to Liverpool with a venue on the city’s Hanover Street.
Nightcap, founded by ex-Dragons’ Den star Sarah Willingham, marks its transition into the North with this first venture in Liverpool, which it sees as an important milestone for the business’s growth strategy as it continues its rapid expansion across the UK.
The new Tonight Josephine site, which has been redeveloped by family-owned building group Stenball, has been transformed from the old City Buffet into a bar covering almost 8,000 sq ft of space, split across a ground floor entrance, basement and lower basement.
The venue’s size makes it one of Nightcap’s biggest venues, and the biggest Tonight Josephine yet.
The new venue has already created 25 jobs for local team members, and will continue to grow the team post-launch creating more hospitality jobs in the area.
Tonight Josephine Liverpool has a brand new look and feel compared to the existing portfolio.
There is plenty of the hot pink Instagrammable areas and Barbiecore the brand has become synonymous with, however, the venue sees inspiration from the wild-wild west meets all things bling and glam, alongside lots of bright green neon seen throughout the building.
Sarah Willingham, Nightcap chief executive, said: “Liverpool is known for its incredible people, culture and, of course, nightlife, so it felt like the perfect location to open our first Northern venue and the right fit for Tonight Josephine.
“We’ve seen great success from our sister sites across London, Bristol and Birmingham, so it only seemed right that we introduced Tonight Josephine to the ultimate party city.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming more people to Tonight Josephine Liverpool over the coming months.”
