 Two Local Heroes Unite - Darren Till Announced as New Part-Owner of Graffiti Spirits Group's Santa Maluco Graffiti Spirits, the independent bar and restaurant group owned by Matt Farrell and John Ennis, has announced that UFC star and local legend Darren Till, has bought a 25% share in his favourite Liverpool restaurant, Santa Maluco. Along with MMA fighter Mark Scanlon, he will make up 50% of the business.

Till has been a regular visitor to Santa Maluco’s for the last year and it’s not just because of the unbeatable pizza, there’s a sense of nostalgia for the both him and Scanlon in the restaurant too, as the pair used to visit another Rodizio-style (all you can eat) pizza place every week whilst they trained to fight in Brazil.

On joining the Graffiti Spirits Group team, Darren Till comments: “I’ve known the guys from Graffiti Spirits Group for a while now and have been really impressed by their impact on the Liverpool food and drink scene. John and Matt have been a great support to me over the years, so it’s really great to be able to partner up with them with Santa Maluco. It’s been a favourite for me and my friends since it opened, so it feels good to finally be a part if it properly.”

Like John and Matt, Darren is Liverpool born-and-bread and takes enormous pride in his city. He is currently competing welter-weigh UFC, and after a recent win on home turf is hoping to go global in his next fight.

At Santa Maluco, all pizzas are cooked in a traditional, wood fired, handmade oven, bringing the most authentic pizza experience possible to the plate. All pizzas are 18 inch and are made completely from scratch by a team of experienced and talented pizziolas. Favourites include: ‘What the Duck’, featuring shredded duck, spring onions, cucumber, char siu, ’Mac & Cheese’ featuring Mac & Cheese, mozzarella, Parmesan, pancetta

And ‘Return of the Mac’- a pizza take on the classic ‘Big Mac’’ burger.  Wanting to keep the menu fresh and seasonal, elements change on a weekly basis, with an exciting range of daily specials also available.
