A vacant nightspot in Liverpool city centre could be partly transformed into an American bar and eatery under new plans.
An application for a change of use of the ground floor, part basement and part first floor of Bold Street’s former Republik club has been submitted to Liverpool City Council to make way for a branch of Red Dog Saloon.
The London-based chain, which currently has restaurants in the capital’s Hoxton Square, Clapham North and Soho, is looking to branch out into Liverpool creating 50 full and part-time jobs.
If given the go-ahead, the new use will bring “no major proposed changes to the exterior of the building” according to a planning statement by Peterborough-based i-lid Design Ltd which has been submitted with the application.
The site, located on the corner of the city’s Bold Street and Slater Street, is not listed and situated in the Bold Street Conservation Area and the World Heritage Site Buffer Zone.
