First Look: The Club House In Liverpool One
By Jade Wright, Liverpool Eco
Step inside Liverpool’s newest pub - The Club House.
Set in Chavasse Park in Liverpool One, the 600 cover venue offers a taste of New England luxury from its Hamptons style beach house.
The design centres around a stunning bespoke chandelier, made from 64 suspended wine glasses.
Chris Hill, managing director of owners the New World Trading Company, said: “We’re all so excited about it. We can’t wait to open the doors. It’s been two years in the planning because we wanted to get something that was perfect for Liverpool.
“For us it’s important that every element works - from the design to the menu, the drinks and of course the service.
“We already have Smugglers Cove on the Albert Dock and there will be some similar elements, and some very different. This is a big, bright, beautiful pub and we’re all looking forward to showing it off.”
The team are clear that it’s a pub rather than a bar or restaurant - service is from the bar, even for food, and the portions are big and hearty.

It’s been designed under the watchful eye of Paul Danson Imagineering. He says: “I wanted to develop a building firstly that would be a strong stand alone design statement and secondly a destination landmark for the city of Liverpool. Not just another chain rollout!
"I thought about a building which had a connection to the close proximity of the site to the sea, without designing yet another yacht club, which the UK is littered with in various shapes and styles, yet something romantic and themed with a great history and strong story line.”
