The team behind Motel and Petit Cafe Du Coin are bringing rock and roll back to the masses, slap-bang on one of Liverpool’s most famous streets.
Upstairs at Teddy’s will be a drinking den, a classic American dive bar. A no-nonsense hang out for those who know. A place to put the world to rights over a cheap beer or a classic cocktail. Downstairs the music will be rattling the wood panels. Live music and dancing until 4:30am every night and then when the sun comes up they’ll jet-wash the place down ready to go again. Teddy’s is everything you can ask for from a bar. Long days upstairs and the fastest night in town downstairs – that’s the plan.
Paul Senior, Director of Motel, the operator who brought Dive Bar Karaoke to Liverpool, is at the helm at Teddy’s and he feels he has the best collaborators imaginable.
On the design Paul says: “We’ve enlisted award winning R2 Architecture, who brought you Korova, Alma De Cuba & Papillon, Richard Eastwood is widely known as the best in the industry for delivering brilliant designs, we have a clear idea of what we wanted, and we know he will help us achieve that. Our management all grew up hanging out in Korova, and the chance to work with him closely is exciting.”
R2 Architechtures, Richard Eastwood said: “R2 architecture are really excited to be working on this with the team from Teddy’s. Together we will be creating something unique for Liverpool. After creating the legendary Korova around the corner, we are hoping to brink some of that indie, punk attitude to the concept.
And that’s not all. He’s working with Kieran Riddiough of Nice Swan Creative to work on the look and brand.
Paul: “We searched far and wide for the right creative agency, and were blown away by Nice Swan. They didn’t just get the brief but they believed in the brief. They took it and ran and we can’t tell you how amazing the job they have done so far is. You just need to see it, we’re really excited about it.”
You can tell that when you hear Kieran speak: “When the makers of Motel come knocking with the opportunity to brand the bigger, more twisted, sister bar – specialising in rock’n’roll, liquor’n’beer, and doors till the early hours of the morning. Of course we’re gonna take it!”
Teddy’s is due to open in March 2020, and will be open 7 days a week till 4:30am.
