A café serving Eastern Mediterranean and North African cuisine will be one of three food and drink outlets opening at the £3.64m Beacon Arts Village in Wirral.
Located in Hoylake’s Victorian Town Hall, the Beacon Arts Village will comprise a two-screen cinema, a restaurant and a bar and eventually 18 creative studio and retail spaces for artists and makers around a central courtyard.
The project is creating more than 140 jobs during design, construction and operation and is being backed by the Coastal Communities Fund. It is scheduled to open towards the end of 2020.
Lucky Penny Consultants, the leading Liverpool-based hospitality consultants that will manage the food and drinks offer, have announced that the Beldi will be set in the courtyard beneath a glass flat roof and mezzanine walkway.
Beldi, after the Moroccan word meaning traditional, homemade and local, will open from early morning to late night It will offer “brilliant brunches, lazy lunches and an incredible drinks menu”.
Steven Burgess, managing director of Lucky Penny Consultants, said: “The atrium at the back of the building is an amazing space which will be flooded with light and we want to make sure that it is really beautiful and delivers a great dining experience whatever time of day people visit.
“With Beldi we are creating something not currently available in the area, but nonetheless which will complement the other offers in the building, as well as what is already on the high street to boost further Hoylake’s growing appeal.
“At Beldi we will serve authentic Middle Eastern cuisine with a few Anglo touches and we want to take people on journey with the food. We believe that it is food that everyone will enjoy.”
