Future Projects

Since opening our first hotel in 2008, the Signature Living Group has grown massively. We have opened three hotels including 30 James Street- Home of the Titanic and The Shankly Hotel which was a partnership with The Shankly Family. We also operate three apartment locations within the city which have been hugely successful and are the go-to accommodation for large groups and party stays in Liverpool.

Liverpool is an incredible city and we’re so proud of where we’ve come from, but we think it’s time to take the Signature Living brand worldwide.

We have a range of exciting projects in the pipeline including new developments in Liverpool and the rest of the UK. This is a very exciting time for us at Signature Living, here are a few of our future projects.

Alma de Cuba

Where: Liverpool

Opening: November 2018

Alma de Cuba

Alma de Cuba is a remarkable city centre bar, restaurant and venue with a unique twist.

Located in the thriving nightlife district of Liverpool’s Ropewalks, Alma de Cuba is situated within the historic former St. Peters Catholic Church on Seel Street, making for a completely unique and stunning venue.

We plan to give Alma de Cuba a whole new mezzanine floor that will sit above the current first level restaurant. This amazing new space will offer a stunning private dining, events and wedding space in the beautiful alcoves of this former church. The new floor will seat up to 170 people and will be located above the already existing mezzanine area. It will allow guests to overlook the dance floor where the famous petal show takes place and the samba dancers perform, as the walls surrounding the new floor are made of glass.

The George Best Hotel

Where: Belfast

Opening: December 2018

George Best Hotel - Signature Living

The George Best Hotel is a unique city centre development in one of Belfast’s most iconic buildings. The impressive Scottish Mutual Building will be transformed into a luxury hotel with premium amenities, whilst preserving its Grade B1 listed status.

Located in the heart of Belfast city centre on Donegal Square South, overlooking the magnificent City Hall and accompanying gardens, this magnificent hotel will celebrate the life of the iconic footballer, both on and off the pitch.

The hotel will showcase the very best of the Signature Living brand, with luxurious themed rooms and suites, a bar and restaurant, an events and weddings venue and a fascinating museum featuring treasured memorabilia.

The Waring Hotel

Where: Belfast

Opening: December 2018

Waring Hotel - Signature Living Investments

Set to be transformed into a luxurious 64 room hotel, The Waring Hotel will follow the famous and hugely successful Signature Hotel brand. Widely recognised as a fun and energetic aspect of our business, this new hotel will offer something completely new to the centre of Belfast.

We hope to showcase the very best of our brand, with quirky interiors, fantastic themed rooms and an onsite bar and restaurant.

The Shankly Preston

Where: Preston

Opening: April 2019

The Shankly Preston

Following on from the phenomenal success of The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool, a joint venture between the Shankly family and Signature Living, Preston has been chosen as the first location to roll out this phenomenal hospitality experience.

This unique hotel will follow the same DNA as its Liverpool counterpart, offering luxurious accommodation, a bar and restaurant dedicated to the great Bill Shankly and a spacious and beautiful events space.

We will also showcase some unseen Shankly family memorabilia, stories and tales of the great Scot, with many relating back to his career and time spent with Preston North End.

Dixie Dean Hotel

Where: Liverpool

Opening: April 2019

Dixie Dean Hotel - Lawrence Kenwright

Set within the gothic Jerome and Carlisle Buildings on Victoria Street, The Dixie Dean Hotel will be a magnificent 100-bedroom hotel with a stunning bar and restaurant, a weddings and events venue and an amazing collection of Dixie Dean mementoes.

Dixie Dean is undoubtedly one of Everton’s most treasured icons and a footballing legend. The Dixie Dean Hotel will commemorate the life of Dixie both on and off the pitch with a luxury hotel, creating the world’s first Football Quarter.

Fans visiting Liverpool or locals looking for an overnight stay in the city will be able to visit the quarter and choose between a stay at the Shankly or the Dixie Dean. The two teams are very much ingrained in Liverpool’s history and culture. If you grew up in Liverpool, you’ll have spent many years in the school yard answering the age-old question of whether you were “a red or blue”.

Loyola Hall

Where: Rainhill

Opening: April 2019

Loyola Hall

Loyola Hall is set to become a unique and stunning hotel and events space, in the beautiful area of Rainhill. The Grade II listed building has a history stretching back to 1824 when it was built by landowner Bartholomew Bretherton and we hope to preserve this treasured heritage.

We have proposed for 14 rooms on the lower ground floor, a function room and areas designated to a spa and gymnasium. The upper ground floor will contain 10 rooms with more space for a function room area and restaurant and dining facilities, kitchen, bar and a reception/waiting area.

The first and second floors will comprise 23 stunning hotel rooms, including the bridal suite for wedding events.

Celebrating the unique heritage and history of both the building and the city, The Crum Hotel will be the landmark venue it once was.

The Coal Exchange -

After successfully completing phase one of The Exchange Hotel, officially opening a number of luxurious rooms, the outstanding Grand Hall and the beautiful reception, phase two is now in the pipeline.
