UK: Meliá Hotels International will roll out a series of Italian dining restaurants and bars in partnership with Italian chef Gino D’Acampo across INNSiDE by Meliá hotels.
The menus at these dining locations will only include dishes created by D’Acampo and his team. INNSiDE Manchester will be the first collaboration and will include First Street Bar & Kitchen, an all-day dining location. There will be an outdoor terrace, Spritz Bar, and an open plan restaurant.
On Monday 17 May, INNSiDE Newcastle will launch on the Quayside, in line with the government’s roadmap announcement. On Monday 16 August, INNSiDE Liverpool will open in what was the former Liverpool ECHO building. More UK sites will launch in 2022.
“I want the restaurants to not only provide great Italian food to hotel guests but to be a destination for food lovers to hang out from morning until night in cool surroundings. My team will be working in partnership with Meliá to deliver the highest standard of food service for guests, whether they are dining in my restaurant, attending a conference or celebrating a special occasion. I cannot wait to get started,” D’Acampo said.
Garry Fortune, cluster general manager at Meliá Hotels International said: “This is a very exciting time, as two lifestyle and destination hospitality brands come together to create a new presence in the UK. It comes at a time when INNSiDE by Meliá is expanding the brand across the UK, Europe and Asia; with our new opening in Newcastle imminent and Liverpool following this summer.”
To prioritise guest and staff safety during Covid-19, INNSiDE UK hotels will operate the global Stay Safe with Meliá programme.
INNSiDE by Meliá has hotels in 28 locations, spread across 10 countries with 13 additional properties in the pipeline. Upcoming new openings include INNSiDE Newcastle, INNSiDE Liverpool, and INNSiDE Lisbon.
