American BBQ restaurant Red Dog Saloon is pushing forward its UK expansion with a new opening set for Liverpool.
The company's sixth restaurant, which represents a £1.2m investment, will open 8 May on Bold Street.
The brand is known for its fat ribs, buffalo chicken wings, hickory-smoked pulled pork and burgers. The first Red Dog Saloon opened in London Hoxton in 2011, with sites in Clapham South and Soho following, and restaurants in Nottingham and Southampton opening within the past 18 months.
The restaurant will feature a new menu with cocktails, bottled beers, tequila and bourbon, a bottomless brunch menu and ‘food challenges'.
Owner Tom Brooke said: "It has been an incredibly exciting year for Red Dog Saloon and Liverpool was the perfect choice for our first foray into the North. After a nationwide search for suitable locations, Liverpool was chosen as it is a fun, energetic city with a thriving independent scene that perfectly reflects Red Dog Saloon's personality."
Chad Crooks, operations director, added: "This is a family-run business and we are passionate about the food we serve and the fun, unpretentious party atmosphere we create for our customers. We can't wait for to join Liverpool's fantastic bar and restaurant scene and see what the city, and the North as a whole, thinks of Red Dog Saloon."
