Who would have known after Maray forming back in the Summer of 2014, the trio behind the Bold Street favourite would be set to launch their third site?
Due to light up the Royal Albert Dock this Summer, Liverpool’s most popular Middle-Eastern inspired restaurant and cocktails bar is expected to be a refreshing addition to the expanding venues at the stunning waterfront. With two hugely successful restaurants currently operating in Liverpool on Bold Street and Allerton Road, the third site will be joining a number of other independents such as Spanish cantina Lunyalita, London restaurateur Rosa’s Thai Café as well as Barrie Brothers’ new restaurant which is set to open over the coming months.
The menu on offer at the Royal Albert Dock restaurant will be the same as the other two sites, serving a diverse selection of vegetarian, vegan and nonvegetarian small plates, inspired by the flavours of the Middle East. The site will accommodate up to 65 covers, and there will also be a cocktail bar on the premises, offering a creative drinks menu along with beautiful views of the Dock waterfront.
The Maray signing is a pivotal one for Royal Albert Dock, and congruent with Aberdeen Standard Investment’s strategy to offer a collection of Liverpool’s finest independents, for a competitive retail and leisure offering.
Portfolio Manager of Aberdeen Standard Investments, Chris Wright, comments, “We’re delighted Maray has chosen the Royal Albert Dock as the new home for its third opening. Maray will sit perfectly amongst the additional recent signings, making the Dock’s Britannia Pavilion one of Liverpool’s key restaurant destinations.”
Co-founder of Maray, Tom White, commented, “We were really impressed with the recent signings at the Royal Albert Dock, and we’re looking forward to being part of the new food and drink line-up.
“As a business, Liverpool is where we’ve cut our cloth – Bold Street provided us with the perfect introduction to the hospitality scene and continues to do well. With such a diverse mix of visitors at the Dock, we felt we could introduce Maray to a new audience and we’re excited to grow with the launch of the third site.”
