Dash Restaurant – Paris Inspired Dining Destination in Liverpool
The site of the former night clubs: Living Room and Sugar Hut in Liverpool has seen a major transformation in the hands of Wroot Design into an elegant dining destination and vibrant VIP basement club.
Versital is thrilled to have been commissioned by interior designers JMDA Ltd to provide bespoke bar tops and kitchen pass tops for their latest project with hospitality giant Whitbread. Cookhouse & Pub located in Oldbury, West Midlands, is the newest concept venue by the company and features Versital’s on-trend ‘Arabesque’ marble finish surfaces.
New Informal Dining Experience for Whitbread
Described by Whitbread as ‘an informal, all day restaurant, with the relaxed vibe and affordability of a pub’ the new space is now a striking new eatery that has replaced the previous site. Speaking of the renovation, Simon Tyas, director of JMDA said
‘Much of the original interior was stripped out. The kitchen and back of house areas were retained in the same location, but the kitchen was converted into a theatre-style, extending into the restaurant and including a bistro oven, so diners can see their food being prepared.’
Versital’s made-to-order surfaces were commissioned for the bar tops and kitchen pass tops in a luxurious white marble finish. The handcrafted surfaces bring a fresh and modern feel to the space, effortlessly complementing the contemporary colour palette of teal, mushroom and off white. Punctuated with pops of ochre yellow and showcasing wooden and copper accents, the new restaurant displays industrial elements throughout for an informal yet sophisticated dining experience.
Versital’s solid marble surfaces offer all the beauty of natural marble without the issues the natural product often brings – a totally unique product and the most realistic faux marble on the market. The true-to-life marble is 100% waterproof, non-porous and stain proof making it a preferred choice for bars and restaurants alike. Boasting an impressive range of over 100 exclusive finishes, Versital caters for all interior styles whether domestic or commercial.
Gemma Stockberger, Head of Marketing and Sales for Versital UK said
‘Being involved with a prestigious brand such as Whitbread is always a proud moment for us. We were absolutely delighted to be specified, once again, by the designer JMDA who we love working with. All our surfaces are hand-crafted with care and it’s fantastic to see them used on beautifully designed projects being enjoyed across the UK. We can’t wait to see this new brand concept roll out across the UK over the coming year.’
Well renowned and highly rated restaurant Cannonball House recently underwent a refurb on the bar and restaurant area. The facelift designed by Ambience Designs Edinburgh and installed by ECG Joinery included a new restaurant layout, bar area and decor.
Rated 5 star on the independent review site trip advisor, Cannonball House has an excellent reputation for food, service and decor.
“We were delighted that Cannonball House decided to use Versital for their new bar tops and table tops. As a highly regarded and successful restaurant we understand how important quality is to them.
They chose the classic white marble finish ‘Arabesque’ for a look to emulate Carrara marble. They wanted the marble look, but in a waterproof and easy to care for material that would last. Versital’s custom bar tops and table tops were ideal for their needs and could be made to their exact design specifications.
Their fitters ECG joinery could install the product themselves without the need for a specialist masonry team or equipment.”
Versital bar tops are manufactured from stone resin to the specification of designers, architects or client ready for installation. There are over 90 colour options to choose from in marble, granite and sparkle finish options.
Unlike natural marble, Versital cultured marble is 100% waterproof and stain resistant making it a more practical option for high traffic areas such as bar tops and table tops. Versital offers the look of beautiful marble surfaces, but none of the problems they bring.
