Grosvenor Europe and Thai Leisure Group (TLG) have announced they will bring the ambience of Thailand's bustling urban marketplaces to Liverpool with the opening of the Thaikhun Street Bar.
TLG will recreate the street scenes of the country's urban areas with bric-a-brac, a tuk-tuk and specially selected artefacts imported from Thailand.
Drinks will continue along the theme - with cocktails made from selected thai spirits, while traditional bar snacks and bowls including pad Thai will also be served.
The site will sit alongside TLG's Chaophraya restaurant in Liverpool One. Last year the restaurant was found to be in breach of food safety rules after an Environmental Health Officer discovered extensive mouse droppings and multiple dead mice in and around the site's fridges. TLG pleaded guilty to two counts and paid a fine of £32,500
Kim Kaewkraikhot, founder of Thai Leisure Group, said: "As the first project of its kind, the brand-new bar concept is very exciting for us all. Offering unique Thai experiences is something we're hugely passionate about and with this fantastic offer, I have no doubt it will succeed.
"Liverpool One's wide range of bars and dining experiences is one of the most comprehensive and compelling in the UK, which made it an easy decision for us to open our very first Thaikhun Street Bar in Liverpool. It demonstrates our continued commitment to be at the forefront of the hospitality sector."
Alison Clegg, director of asset management for Grosvenor Europe, added: "TLG's proven success of operations at Liverpool One with its existing restaurant, Chaophraya, and the quality of the new concept, makes the new Thaikhun Street Bar a very welcome addition.
"Their ability to pull together a winning offer and also their willingness to adapt the model to bring something new to Liverpool One, sets them apart from the crowd. We are looking forward to the opening and providing even more choice than ever before, which will appeal to residents, workers and visitors alike."
