With three successful venues in London - providing street food, drinks and entertainment under one roof - BOXPARK is branching out beyond the capital with a huge 21,000 sq ft site in the Baltic Triangle. Planning permission was granted earlier last year, and the award-winning leisure operator agreed a 15-year lease with Cains Brewery Village for the site.

Showcasing ‘the very best traders across global cuisine’, the new venue will be a food hall and events destination featuring a large internal space and a small internal mezzanine. Eight local vendors will be housed in food units set over the ground floor and there will be a 5,500 sq. ft external terrace for al fresco dining and intimate events.

Officially opening on Friday April 19, BOXPARK Liverpool will host a series of festival-style parties throughout its first weekend, with 'some of the city's most loved acts, and exciting up-and-coming musicians and DJs' celebrating its launch.

Discussing the opening, Steve Rotheram, Mayor of the Liverpool City Region, said: “The Baltic Triangle is one of our area’s great urban regeneration success stories and is now a hub of vibrant and creative venues. To put it simply, nowhere is better placed to host the BOXPARK’s newest venue – the first outside of London – and I can’t wait to see it grow from strength to strength in its new home.”

The full programme for BOXPARK Liverpool’s opening weekend will be announced soon and more information is available here.
