- Making it BIG!
SOUTHPORT brothers Marco and Roberto Campolucci-Bordi are mixing with the rich and famous on the Costa del Sol after opening a cocktail bar and restaurant with the biggest drinks menu in Spain.
Marco, 32, and Roberto, 23, opened the Liquid Lounge in glitzy Puerto Banus in February and have since attracted S Club's Rachel Stevens and fiancé Jeremy Edwards, from TV's Holby City, film star Dolph Lungdren, and former Brookside actress Claire Sweeney.
The duo, whose parents own Liverpool's Casa Italia restaurant, offer 40 different cocktails, 110 spirits and more than 30 healthy juice drinks, while serving up the best in Italian and European cooking.
Roberto said:- "We've always had restaurants in the family, since my dad was young. I've always said throughout my life I would never go into the restaurant business but I came out here and saw a bit of a niche in the market and decided to have a go with it. I knew Marco would come in with me and knew I would have his experience.My first idea - what I really wanted to do - was design and create this bar, using

more of my university degree in design management."
Born and raised in Southport, the brothers visit their parents Mario and Pauline, in Birkdale, whenever they have the time.
The brothers have been so busy since the opening in February, they have not yet managed to have a launch party but are planning
"something big" for the summer.
Despite being a long way from their roots, the duo are pleased with the progress they are making on Spain's Costa del Sol.
Roberto added:- "I think we are the only bar-restaurant here where diners and drinkers can interact.
It's the set-up, not just the general aesthetic but the feeling when you're here. The staff make you feel relaxed.
It's where people come and wind down, have a cocktail and read the paper."
Marco said:- "Coming up with the cocktails is called
mixology. The same kind of input and care is taken to create a cocktail as it is to make a meal."
