The Merchant Opening In Liverpool



We are pleased to be involved with new Liverpool opening The Merchant, a new venture from local entrepreneurs Richard McGinnis and Lewis Boardman.

Located on the vibrant Slater Street, The Merchant is due to open in Spring 2016.

Of the opening, The Merchant co-founder Lewis, said: “We look forward to adding to Liverpool’s vibrant bar and food scene with the addition of The Merchant.”

The pair’s first launch was The Shipping Forecast, which is now coming up to its sixth year of successful trading.

Branding for The Merchant has been provided by Liverpool design agency Smiling Wolf and it’s been a collaborative process to develop the interior.

“It’s been a great process working with Smiling Wolf in helping bring together all of the historic influences of this former Merchant house.” said co-founder Rich.

The Merchant will have a street level Scandinavian-feel cafe-bar, a multi-use event space upstairs and extensive garden to the rear which will be presenting the UK’s best street food vendors all year round.
