Highlights from Our Unforgettable Dixie Dean Hotel Launch Party

This month, we launched The Dixie Dean Hotel, completing the world’s first ‘Football Quarter’. Sitting opposite The Shankly Hotel, The Dixie Dean celebrates the life of Shankly’s friend and fellow football legend, William Ralph “Dixie” Dean.

Of course, we marked the occasion in true Signature style with an unforgettable party! The night followed a glamorous 1930s theme in honour of Dixie Dean’s era of the Beautiful Game.

So, join us as we take a look back at a very special night…
