Strong growth at Mikhail Leisure

A licensed and leisure industry entrepreneur from Rainford has launched his Punch Tarmey Liverpool brand in the former Cains Brewery.

Andrew Mikhail, chairman of Mikhail Leisure, confirmed a £7m, four-phase investment earlier in the summer with 200 jobs being created during the duration of the three-year scheme.

He is hoping to turn Punch Tarmey’s Liverpool into a prime destination for families, sports fans and revellers.

Andrew Mikhail said “It’s a momentous time for the group, we’re enjoying strong growth across each of brands and venues and this weekend is a special landmark in our history.

“The Cains deal is massive for the city and us whilst Southport is also primed for rejuvenation with strong signs of a new, nascent, more high-end market developing.”

Andrew  moved into the licensed and leisure industry after a successful stint in the sports car and performance business. He founded the leisure business in 2014 and launched the Eccleston bar, restaurant and boutique hotel in March 2015.

Part of Mikhail’s portfolio is the Bold Hotel on Lord Street in Southport, which underwent a multimillion-pound refurbishment in 2016 and now enjoys a 95 per cent occupancy rate.

Southport is also home to a Punch Tarmey pub which opened two years ago.
