Plans revealed to open Egypt themed bar on Lord Street
PLANS have been revealed to open an Egyptian themed restaurant and bar on Lord Street.
If approved by Sefton Council, it would actually be the second North African themed eatery – following on from the growing success of the Fig Bistro on Eastbank Street.
The proprietors behind the scheme have yet to be revealed but it is understood they hope to take over the former Tea Rose cafe and Geek Pit comic book store at 645 and 647 Lord Street.
Sefton Council are not set to debate the plans, submitted on behalf of the proprietors by Liverpool based architecture firm Condy & Lofthouse Ltd.
A design and access statement from Condy said: “The proposal aims to provide a starting point for our client’s aspirations to create a bar/restaurant business in Southport.
“The restaurant and bar would look to provide an Egyptian styled eating and drinking atmosphere that would use locally sourced fresh produce for their food.
“This business manifesto is something that the applicants would like to bring to Southport as they feel it would fit in well within the high street and offer an alternative dining experience.
“The applicants have done their research into where would be best to start their business, and felt that Southport would be well suited, as it is a diverse and thriving town centre, and Lord Street in particular is beginning to develop its bar and restaurant scene.”
According to Sefton Council’s planning department the applicants are applying for approval to allow the restaurant to be open from Monday to Saturday 8am – 12am and Sunday 9am – 10pm.
