London’s famous burger joint MEATliquor will be opening a restaurant in Stokes Croft in Bristol.
Taking over what used to be the Dynamic Heating Services plumbing and heating company at 77-79 Stokes Croft, the folks behind MEATliquor will be doing what they do best and renovating a completely irrelevant building to their industry, making it one of the coolest and most unique spots in town. It will of course also have an amazing menu. While recently being guests on The Menu on Monocle 24, MEATliquor founders Yianni Papoutsis and Scott Collins talked about the Bristol location, giving away some hints as to how they will be approaching the decor…
“It’s called Dynamic Heating Services, so all we’re gonna do is rip off the H and call it Dynamic eating Services and just riff off the whole area and what it was before.”
Stokes Croft has long been the cool area of Bristol and this will undoubtedly add a large seal of approval to that well deserved reputation. It has been confirmed that there will be tweaks to both the food and cocktail menus to make the restaurant more “Brsitol” than the other MEATliquor venues and local artist Inkie (now a London resident) has been confirmed to be helping with the design of the location. Also, in true Stokes Croft style, the team will be using local suppliers in as many areas of their business as possible, wether it’s ingredients, design, or furniture. Something that we’re sure the local inhabitants will be pleased to here (some of you will remember their actions to TESCO trying to open in the area in 2011). These are passionate locals, so it’s the best area for the MEATliquor brand to settle, seeing as they are one of the most passionate restaurant groups for what they do and they details involved.
