Liverpool ONE doubles outdoor seating capacity in support of occupiers and visitors

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland has announced that Liverpool ONE will increase its outdoor seating capacity by 100% as part of its plans to support operators and safely accommodate visitors as they return to the destination from April 12.

Supplementing the existing external covers, Liverpool ONE has worked closely with its occupiers to facilitate an additional 610 covers, all in keeping with social distancing guidelines.

Of these, half of the covers introduced will bolster the existing outdoor seating areas of Liverpool ONE’s diverse restaurants, cafés, bars and leisure experiences, while the remainder will form part of pop-up activations across Chavasse Park alongside new dedicated communal spaces across the destination. 

Liverpool ONE’s reopening plans include the return of the popular ‘safe circles’ painted on the grass on Chavasse Park, first introduced in summer 2020.  The designated socially distanced areas encourage visitors to the enjoy the destination’s five-acre park in the heart of the city.

Alison Clegg, Managing Director, Asset Management at Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, commented: “We have a responsibility to reassure visitors they can return safely, while also inspiring them to spend time enjoying Liverpool ONE with friends and family as the lockdown begins to lift.  At the same time, we are very conscious our tenants need continued support.  The additional covers and reintroduction of the social distanced circles on Chavasse Park achieve these two objectives, creating more opportunities for tenants to welcome visitors as they return to Liverpool ONE.”

As non-essential retail and hospitality reopens, three new F&B and leisure brands will also be joining Liverpool ONE’s line-up including Maggie Fu, the Liverpool-based street food operator, Mamasan, with its first restaurant outside Scotland, and new experiential golfing concept, On The Green.
