Occupying a Victorian Grade-II listed building, Maranto’s combines unique décor that integrates historical architectural salvage – such as decorative cast iron from railway stations and antique Tiffany lamps – in a bright and modern space. Spanning two floors with the addition of a balcony bar, Maranto’s is a long-standing gem in the heart of Lark Lane and is proud to be part of Liverpool’s rich history.
During the 19th century, the building served a diverse range of occupants including a chemist, a plumber’s merchant, hosier and even operated as a mission chapel.
Moving into the 20th century, it was used as ‘cocoa rooms’ for local workers and their families and went on to become a launderette, a skating academy and a site for a motor company.
A child welfare centre and an antique dealer occupied the building during the ‘Swinging Sixties’ and the venue was used by a manufacturer of window blinds until the Maranto family took over in 1983.
