Breaking News ! A Liverpool city centre bar has completely transformed itself in order to stay open during the region’s tier three lockdown. Liverpool City Region was placed in the ‘very high risk’ category of the Government’s new coronavirus alert system this week, which saw bars, pubs, casinos, gyms, leisure centres, betting shops and more close their doors. Only pubs and bars which serve “substantial meals” and can operate as a restaurant were allowed to remain open.

The bar, which opened in 2014 and quickly became a firm favourite, has decided to introduce a food menu and owner Lee Lynch has even taken matters into his own hands this week, demolishing walls and replacing flooring in preparation to install the necessary kitchen equipment. The renovation and new menu is set to cost around £40,000 and will require further investment and recruitment. (Image: LIVERPOOL ECHO) Lee Lynch, owner of Red Door, said: “The impact of the lockdown restrictions on the hospitality industry have been truly devastating and the latest measures have proved catastrophic for so many. “Since the 10pm curfew was announced our revenue is down 75% and my staff numbers have reduced from 39 to 10. We were literally left with no option other than ‘fight or flight’ and having invested over 20 years in Liverpool’s hospitality scene and many millions of pounds, the latter is NOT an option for us.

The bar also offers a big screen to show Premier League matches and other major sporting and music events. Lee added: “Desperate times call for desperate measures and we will do everything we can to protect the 10 jobs we are still responsible for.
