A Hooters restaurant has opened up in Liverpool and many customers seem to be confused by the Scouse waitresses singing in American accents.

The American chain, which critics have often dubbing ‘degrading’ to women due to their infamous scantly clad uniform, opened in Liverpool yesterday despite a backlash from the local council.

However, the restaurant has already become a hit on TikTok with people sharing clips of the female staff members breaking into song and dancing.

Gary Ousalice took to his TikTok account @garyousalice969 to share the clip which racked up over 1.4 million views. 

During service at the bar, which is housed in New Zealand House, servers stopped mid-shift to suddenly sing their very own rendition of AC/DC’s ‘You Shook Me All Night Long’.

The clip showed the waitresses, who donned the infamous orange shorts and the white tank tops featuring the company logo, gathered around a few tables.

The girls then begin clapping their hands and singing while incorporating some dance moves as people eat their meals.

Another said: ‘Oh god… it’s all so tragic.’ While someone else said: ‘Why do I feel embarrassed.’

Another said: ‘Why the American accent.’ While someone else wrote: ‘Do they get told they have to sing in an American accent?’

However it wasn’t just social media users that were hitting back at the new restaurant, Liverpool Local Council weren’t too happy either.       

Maria Toolan, a Labour councillor for Liverpool, started a petition against the chain opening a franchise in the city earlier this year.

‘Hooters is an archaic and chauvinistic brand and this kind type of venue is no longer reflective of today’s society,’ her petition read.

‘Hooters employs women to promote its business activities in an exploitative manner, It demeans and degrades women and undermines female equality.’

But after being granted a license to operate, Liverpool Council’s planning department have rejected plans for the illuminated signs that would be erected at the Hooters venue, as it’s situated in a conservation area.

City centre councillor Nick Small objected to the planned signs, claiming they would be ‘belong more in Amsterdam’s Red Light District than Liverpool’s oldest conservation area.’ 

He added: ‘The proposed signage, banner and flag is bright, gaudy and not within keeping of the character of the area.’ 

In a decision notice rejecting the signage plans, a Liverpool Council report stated: ‘By virtue of size, design and siting, the proposed illuminated vertical signs, banner sign and flag would fail to preserve the character and appearance of the application building and Castle Street Conservation Area and the setting of adjacent listed buildings.’ 

It comes after an under 10s football team in Nottingham had been told they must cancel their sponsorship deal with their local Hooters bar

Hooters – which has one other UK site in Nottingham – was granted a license to open in Liverpool following a hearing in February.

The deal between Burton Joyce FC and Hooters attracted controversy on Twitter due to the American-owned bar’s reputation for giving its female staff revealing uniforms, which has led to some critics labelling the bar ‘degrading’ to women.

It has now been banned by the Nottingham FA. Despite efforts to expand, Nottingham’s branch remains the only Hooters in the country.
