Global food offering focuses on local talent

BOXPARK Liverpool is set to open later this month, ready to champion local talent from across food and drink.

Set to open to the public on 19 April, the first venue of its kind outside of London will be home to eight food vendors from in and around the city. 

The retail, leisure and dining destination will be in Cains Brewery Village and promises to focus on championing local independent businesses through its extensive food and entertainment offering, investing more than £5m into the Baltic Triangle and expecting to bring 150 new jobs to the local community.

"We can’t wait to get open and start the journey with the gang over at BOXPARK – we’re excited to make a bunch of new friends and sling our pizzas in a different part of this great city! It’s looking like it’s going to be loads of fun and we’re buzzing to do what we do over in the Baltic Triangle."

Rose Street Falafel from the founders of Maray

“We can't wait to launch Rose Street Falafel at BOXPARK Liverpool in April. Rose Street has been long in the making; the original Maray was due to be a falafel cafe when we opened in 2014! We've been perfecting the Maray falafel recipe for the last ten years and so we're super excited to give it the opportunity to be front and centre.

"We're long-term fans of BOXPARK and have admired it from afar. When the opportunity came to be part of the Liverpool site it was a no brainer for us to put the Rose Street Falafel brand forward to be involved, especially given its location in the Baltic Triangle amongst the creative communities.

"Our menu is going to be small but perfectly formed, with fluffy falafel pitta being the hero and star of the show. We're also serving halloumi pittas, falafel and halloumi mezze boxes, pillowy pitta and hummus and soft serve ice cream with some fun and interesting toppings."

James Bates, Co-Founder, Rose Street Falafel

"We are incredibly excited to be a part of the new BOXPARK Liverpool and Baltic Triangle community. We cannot wait to finally open and to work alongside so many talented independents from around the city who we have admired for so long. 

"We are bringing the best LA-style smash burgers to the Baltic Triangle alongside all your favourite sides and milkshakes! Although we aren’t afraid to admit we have a bit of a sweet tooth therefore we thought it was only right we bring something different to this menu. 

"Exclusive to BOXPARK Liverpool, we will be serving all your favourite nostalgic soft serve flavours all year round with flavours changing seasonally. Summer 2024 is right around the corner, and we can’t wait to kick it off and meet everyone at BOXPARK Liverpool!"

"We are extremely excited to be joining the BOXPARK line up. BOXPARK has established itself as a dominant force in the multi use event space market in London, and we can't wait to put our brand alongside it. Simply Salt & Pepper is already a hit with the local crowd."

"It's an honour for Pukht to be joining the Baltic Triangle community with BOXPARK. Being big fans of the Liverpool music scene from back in the 90's and enjoying countless nights out in the triangle, it's a pinch me moment to become a part of that offering.

"As regulars at the BOXPARK sites in London, it was a no brainer for us to apply to be part of the first site in the North. After nearly two years of chasing the BOXPARK Liverpool dream, we can't wait to bring our Indo-Pakistani twist on global favourites to the Baltic Triangle, BOXPARK is all about the vibe, the culture and the atmosphere which aligns perfectly with our food and core values of putting people at the heart of what we do."

No kind words from Yum Cha. I imagine they're too busy making dumplings.
