One of the UK’s most iconic buildings, Martins Bank Building, will open its hallowed doors during Taste Liverpool. Drink Bordeaux over the jubilee weekend. Chef Patron of The Art School Paul Askew and Bordeaux Wines are partnering to curate a unique experience for the extended bank holiday - Bordeaux Bar A Vin.
Martins Bank Building is a Grade II listed building situated on 4 Water Street which opened in 1932, a marvel of interwar classical architecture. And for four days the gilded interior and marble detailing with its decadent film-set feel will be used for the first time as a brasserie and bar, available to Bordeaux Wine Experience pass holders during the festival.
The famous region of Bordeaux has over 6000 vineyards producing a sumptuous selection of red, white, sparkling, rosé and Cremant wines, from affordable bottles through to special occasion vintages. At the Bordeaux Bar A Vin, over 20 of these wines by the glass will be available at subsidised prices and all can be purchased by the bottle too to take home.
A brasserie menu will run 1pm – 7pm on Thursday 2nd, Friday 3rd and Sunday 5th June. It includes Terrine of Rhug Estate organic chicken, Sauté of Mr Askew’s Singapore style tiger prawns and Loch Duart salmon and Slices of Seared salt-aged Cumbrian fillet of beef. Shared platters are also on offer celebrating the city region’s local and seasonal produce.
