Dockleaf and Kiosk announce new plans for winter in Liverpool.

From November to February, Kiosk will turn into a winter ski-lodge – Kiosk Presents Bar Mont Blanc will bring resplendent festive magic to the Baltic Triangle, launching on Thursday 9th November. While Dockleaf announces a series of collaborations and partnerships in the coming weeks, and will launch a brand-new drinks menu in late November.

Dockleaf and Kiosk are both impressive venues for very different reasons; each is set in a part of Liverpool’s rich history, placed in the grounds and actual main building of the immense and historic Cain’s Brewery. Yet they both have the same DNA, too, featuring an amazing range of food and drink in environments which further continue to enhance the city’s reputation as a destination for those seeking inspiration away from more conventional locations.

On Thursday November 9th, Kiosk Presents Bar Mont Blanc, an Alpine ski-lodge hideaway built over the outside terrace, which will bring intimate festive fun to the Cain’s Brewery. The cosy log cabin will feature an array of winter warming drinks, with particular emphasis on bespoke mulled wines, vintage French vermouths and traditional Xmas drinks given new leases of life. Hand-made food will include tasty waffles, pretzels and hot and hearty soup, all created to bring nourishment and comfort to the short days and long nights.

Less than 30 seconds walk away at Dockleaf, the beautiful venue is also looking ahead to Christmas. With its inspiration drawn from the original quality control room of the Cain’s Brewery in which it is set, the new menu of cocktails to be launched in November will once more feature a delicious and decadent range of unique concoctions created by the team.

With its ethos based around edification and enlightenment – and yes, plentiful drinking too – Dockleaf will also be running a series of workshops and hosted events in the coming weeks. From across the city, Turncoat Gin, the Liverpool Cheese Company, Holy Crab and more will be providing pop-up tasting sessions along with inspiring talks around their produce. There will also be ticketed events for wine and beer tasting evenings as well as cocktail and gin tasting menus across 6 or more courses. Forthcoming dates include:

Thursday November 9th – Holy Crab Supper Club. The culinary guys will be serving 5 small plates including oysters for £32 per person (if you don’t eat oysters they will knock them off the price) For more info, contact
