Since launching our first site, Santa Chupitos, back in 2009, GSG Hospitality has been integral to transforming the hospitality scene in Liverpool and now Manchester, creating some of the most unique and award-winning venues. Founded by John Ennis and Matt Farrell, GSG Hospitality is one of the North's leading independent hospitality groups with a number of cocktail bars, restaurants, speciality coffee shops and food market.

Founders, John and Matt, and the rest of the talented team behind GSG have worked tirelessly to help carve out Liverpool’s burgeoning eating and drinking scene with our unique offerings; from urban smokehouses, the UK’s first Rodizio pizzeria to high-end cocktail bars and an underground mezcal hangout, all to put Liverpool on the map as a destination for foodies and cocktail connoisseurs.

We currently operate 11 successful venues across Liverpool and Manchester, operating in both Birmingham and London with successful long term pop-ups, with more sites waiting to be added to our ever-growing portfolio. We are proud to develop everything in house: from project planning, menus, interior design, and day-to-day running of all our venues – our dedicated team works hard to produce the best possible experience for all our guests. We are also delighted to be able to provide continuous professional development and training for all GSG Hospitality team members.

The ambition of our founders has been passed down to the hard working professional teams who all strive to bring the unique concepts to reality, with unrivalled service, high quality of food and drinks, and innovation and a passion for hospitality at the heart of it all.

In 2022 already, we have launched Bold Street Coffee at The Plaza as part of Bruntwood’s first Pioneer building in Liverpool. 2021 was a massive success in the eyes of GSG, with the launch of Peppercat Sports, and the opening of two Manchester sites, Salt Dog Slims and Bold Street Coffee. With more openings coming soon across Liverpool and Manchester, the future is promising for our dynamic brand.
