Silk Rd restaurant, Liverpool

A project by Kettle Design

We have been working with the highly successful independent restaurant brand Silk Rd for a number of years. Our latest project was working on the interior design of their fourth restaurant in the North West.
Silk Rd Liverpool

Silk Rd, which already has a restaurant in Beetham Plaza in Liverpool, as well as in Heswall and Bramhall, recently expanded to historical Hope Street.

Restaurants in the group regularly receive rave reviews on TripAdvisor and are frequently in the top 10 for their area.

We worked with the entrepreneurs behind Silk Rd, Chris Williams and Javier Mellado, to create the striking new look and feel.

The restaurant prides itself on its authentic flavours from the Pacific to the Mediterranean all inspired by Chris and Javier’s personal travels on this ancient network of trade routes. 

The pair make regular trips overseas to source fresh new ideas for their menu of shared tapas plates with big-hitting flavours.

This inspired us to create a design that emulated the style and origins of the food in their restaurant with a vibrant mix of colours reflecting the ambience of the East.

Chris, who originally worked with Javier at La Tasca when it was a small, growing independent, said:

“Having established our business in the heart of Liverpool’s business district, it’s great to have expanded into Hope Street. Kettle Design were integral to creating the look and feel of the space, which has attracted lots of positive comments from our customers.

“It’s an exciting time to be running a small and independent group of restaurants in the North West and we have plans to grow it to seven in the coming years.”

Javier, who was born in Madrid, said:

“We love what we do and we’re proud of what we have achieved. We’re already attracting lots of people looking for an exciting new place to eat whether that’s for brunch, lunch or post-theatre tapas.” 

Javier Mellado

Silk Rd are a joy to work with. Chris and Javier have a passion and vibrancy which has inspired us to create a quirky and relaxed space for their customers to enjoy.

There are some fun touches that customers will find in all their restaurants including the iconic rope all the staff painstakingly wrap around the columns and balustrades.
