Enjoy a drink and a pizza in one of Liverpool’s landmarks
Like many organisations, St Luke's Bombed Out Church has had to close during the Covid-19 lockdown period from March 2020.
Set slap bang the heart of the city, this landmark has remained one of the Liverpool’s most stunning venues, hosting a wide range of music, arts and cultural events across the years, famously with its roof missing.
Orders are brought to each table by the venue’s fantastic Covid-19 trained serving staff
St Luke’s has, in the past, relied mainly on tourism - both local and international - for much of its income via visitor’s charitable donations. Due to the quarantine restrictions placed on the UK, the team does not expect this income to continue in the short term so have had to look at alternate sources of revenue to pay for ongoing expenses and maintenance.
And now as the country’s hospitality industry begins to open up again, they have got some very exciting news because the Bombed Out Church Garden Bar is now open.
The Garden Bar will be operated within the gardens around the church building itself, with ample space for people to feel safe. All the tables will have enormous parasols - 2.5m in diameter - so no matter the weather there will always be cover.
It will offer a premium range of drinks, all via socially-distanced table service only. All customers will order and pay for drinks using a smartphone by scanning a QR code which will display a drinks and simple food menu to order from.
Local established pizza company, Turncoat Pizza, will be offering delicious wood-fired pizzas made onsite and ordered in the same way with the QR Code. The drinks include draught Budvar, offering two types of the Czech Republic’s finest lagers, alongside some great local real ales from Liverpool Brewing Co and a comprehensive spirits list including lovely local gins and first-class mixers. Orders are brought to each table by the venue’s fantastic Covid-19 trained serving staff.
To help keep everyone as safe as possible, The Garden Bar company has paid for an independent COVID-19 assessment and implemented strict hygiene and safety measures for customers and staff, including a bespoke disinfecting system that automatically sanitises the toilets after each use. This hygiene system has been designed and created in Liverpool by the makers of Aintree Gin. Additionally, a state of the art, environmentally friendly system will be used to safely sanitise the polycarbonate glassware off site daily, provided by Event Cup Solutions.
The Garden Bar will only accept table-seated groups of 6 people maximum (from a maximum of two households).
