As a city, Liverpool is celebrated for its independent food and drink scene, and now two if its most popular venues are coming together for the first time, offering a truly unique and delicious collaboration. From Thursday 22nd February, Santa Maluco will be opening its doors to coffee connoisseurs, Bold Street Coffee, providing Northerners with the perfect all day eatery, offering everything from delectable brunch items to Rodizio style pizzas and cocktails.
Bold Street Coffee has been a firm favourite of Liverpudlians since it first opened its doors in 2010, when it quickly became recognised as one of the go-to places for a great coffee and flavoursome meal. Since then, the venue has acquired a loyal customer base, so it was to the dismay of many when it recently announced its closure due to maintenance issues. Founder of Bold Street Coffee, Sam Tawil, has been friends with Graffiti Spirits Group founders, Matt Farrell and John Ennis for many years, and when speaking about this exciting collaboration, Sam is the first to say he hopes it will be a long-term venture.
Operating from 7.30am-3.30pm during the week, and from 8.30am-3.30pm over the weekend, guests can expect a diverse brunch menu comprising Bold Street Coffee’s most popular items. Featuring everything from the renowned Egg Buoys to Smashed Avocado and Chilli on Toast, the delicious menu offers something for everyone, all of which can be washed down with one of their signature coffees.
Throughout the afternoon and evening, pizza lovers will still be able to enjoy Santa Maluco’s mouth-watering wood-fired pizzas, featuring an array of diverse toppings, available in a unique all-inclusive Rodizio style. The drinks menu takes inspiration from its sister bar, Santa Chupitos, offering a creative rum-based cocktail list, alongside much-loved classics, such as the $5 Dollar Shake, made with vodka, Chambord, milk, blueberry jam and ice-cream.
Commenting on the Liverpool food and drink scene, Sam has said that over the past three years Liverpudlians have seen a real shift in the independent shops and restaurant culture. Where there was a lack of them in previous years, now the City is starting to thrive with standalone venues, with this collaboration demonstrating perfectly how independent businesses in Liverpool continue to support and work together, helping to evolve the ever-changing hospitality industry.
