The hotel, located in Liverpool City Centre and dedicated to the former Everton Footballer Dixie Dean, was formerly used as a Magistrate’s court has been transformed to offer 100 luxury rooms and suites, as well as a 160-cover bar and restaurant, a wedding and events venue and the Dixie Dean Museum, where exclusive memorabilia will be displayed.
Each of the boutique rooms and suites will feature royal blue and gold detailing, Jacuzzi baths, copper tubs and Dean and Evertonian memorabilia.
Ther bar and restaurant, No9, is named after the iconic jersey that Dean wore when numbered shirts were first introduced during the 1933 FA Cup Final. The menu is described as featuring “traditional scouse cuisine with a luxury twist”.
Signature Living founder Lawrence Kenwright told Liverpool Business News: “The Dixie Dean hotel is a modern boutique style hotel which not only celebrates Everton Football Club and Dixie Dean, it also embraces the iconic past and grandeur of the Grade II-listed building in which we’re opening it.
“A great deal of care and attention to detail has gone into making the most of the existing rustic furnishings but we’re also incorporating memorabilia and artefacts from Dixie Dean’s football glory days. The Dixie Dean, just like the Shankly Hotel, will become landmark destination in Liverpool and add to the city’s vibrant hotel and tourism offer. We’ve already got a huge waiting list of people who want to hold weddings and events at the hotel.”
