exciting to see a new addition to the nightlife options for fans of
great food and live music, but something really
different has just opened in
Mama Liz's Restaurant, Bar, and
Voodoo Lounge Music Club - Stamford.
Street, just off Broad
Street is Mama Liz's Creole, Cajun and Steakhouse restaurant,
serving authentic cuisine of the melting pot of cultures and styles
that is Louisiana on the Mississippi Delta, in a beautiful newly
refurbished setting just across the street from North
Street car park,
The team involved, Michael Liz, Daniel and Patrick have combined to
bring their collective years of experience in live music,
groundbreaking bars and some of the regions most exciting and
renowned restaurants, including Panamania and Mi Familia in
The restaurant is set on the first
floor amid the wooden beams and overlooking Stamford's, Broad St,
and is serving a variety of steaks and also the famous dishes of the
Creole and Cajun cooking traditions including, Gumbo, Jambalaya,
Chilli , Corn Bread, Tennessee Ribs and Cajun chicken. The Creole
and Cajun theme stems from the groups affinity
with that famous city having visited there on numerous occasions and
also some family ties with 'The Big Easy' on the Mississippi Delta.
On ground level, it also boasts a
bar and lounge, again in the New Orleans style, its a real slice of
Bourbon Street authenticity and it already achieving cult status as
a place for a night out. It serves real ales, continental lagers and
of course, cocktails, made to the original New Orleans recipes.
There is already live music in the lounge, with some very fine
acoustic artists announced.
But underneath this building in the
historic town, lies a Victorian wine bottling cellar, which the team
are currently refurbishing into a music venue. Its set amongst the
beautiful old brick arches and is set to be a real eyebrow raising
addition not just to Stamford's live music fans, but to the region
as a whole. Its presently in the final stages of completion and
details of the much anticipated launch night will be announced in
the coming weeks. Voodoo Lounge promises to be a superb venue with
the team involved keen to put on all kinds of top notch live music,
and even some stand up comedy evenings. Voodoo Lounge is special,
there is nationwide interest already and a big launch night is being
planned at present for a venue which will astound even the most
seasoned of live scene veterans. Guided tours are being conducted by
the team currently, so why not pop in for a meal and take a look.
Mama Liz; ''I have been involved
with bars, food and live music for years, but this is truly exciting
and special, we look forward to some memorable nights here and feel
there are great times ahead. Its all very exciting and we are
delighted with how its going, we would like to thank everyone who
has been already and helped to create this buzz, and look forward to
