Liverpool Food Tours is adding Iberian-themed city centre bar BoBo to its itinerary of ‘food walking tour experiences’ in the city centre.
BoBo, in Castle Street, is owned and operated by Liverpool hospitality group Lucky Penny. Opening in September 2020, it offers a range of food and drink inspired by Spain and Portugal. It includes a small dine-in menu and a retail counter.
The venue also hosts regular events including a monthly wine club and a Paella Terrace every Friday afternoon.
In March, Liverpool Food Tours was named Best New Tourism Business award at the Liverpool City Tourism Awards. It was also a finalist in two other award categories – Independent Tourism Business of the Year and Experience of the Year.
It follows similar success for its sister business Tours Around Chester. That venture won the New Tourism Business award at the Marketing Cheshire Annual Tourism Awards in 2019.
Gareth Boyd of Liverpool Food Tours said: “It’s a perfect match for our tour. Like us, BoBo has received rave reviews for what it offers. When people step through the yellow frontage they step into Liverpool’s own small slice of Portugal and Spain.”
Steven Burgess, of Lucky Penny Group, added: “We are flattered that Gareth wanted us on his roster of top bars and bistros for his growing number of tour participants. Liverpool Food Tours has justifiably followed the success of Gareth’s Chester operation by winning prestigious regional awards.”
