Empire Dub Shack Review – October 2016
We were recently fortunate enough to be very kindly invited along by Amanda Moss Of Amanda Moss PR to come and sample the delectable new menu that Empire were serving up,
I was quite surprised to hear of this new late night club branching out into food, but nether less was very hungry and very interested, so we popped along to Seel Street.
Empire has a reputation for being a high class bar, and approaching the venue the exterior was very modern and clean.
Inside, there was an array of what I would describe as barrel tables and chairs, with a long stretched table in the middle – this seems ideal for an meetings or conferences with the bar only a few steps away – what more could you ask for?
We were fortunate enough to get a table just situated opposite the shack, and this did stand out like a sore thumb – BUT for all the right reasons, cleverly tucked under the staircase, the purposely run down build shed adds authentic character to the feel of the bar and with the bare essentials compliments the quirkiness of the bar.
Simply decorated with a bright Neon sign, this gave a feel that we were contestants on I’m a celebrity get me out of here!
I could not have been more wrong! The food was served on wooden platters, and was tastefully decorated with garnish and dressing to compliment the mouth-watering, appetite teasing food, even writing this now, I can feel my mouth watering up just simply talking about the food, the food was served to us by very friendly waiting staff, who were happy to explain what was on each burger, the thing that stood out for me is you could taste the freshness of the meat, and the crispness of the salad, none of this pre bagged supermarket stuff,
As the evening went on, we decided to sample the cocktails, I had “Clockwork Orange” this just complimented the food that we were sampling, not to bitter and not to sweet, in the words of Goldilocks, this was just right.
These little appetisers really should have been called apperteasers, as you could smell the food cooking, the whole concept of “the shack” really does provide great value for money and with 50 % for the duration of October – you simply cannot complain, the food is reasonably priced, and provided a great atmosphere for an early supper or late night snack
Empire is located 57 – 59 Seel Street, Liverpool and is open 7 days a week (Monday – Friday 18:00pm – 22:00pm and Saturday/Sunday 12:00pm – 21:00pm)
