Liverpool’s vast array of bars means there’s an option for every occasion. Sometimes having so much choice though means it’s impossible to make a decision. I’ve done the hard work for you therefore and narrowed down 5 of the most cosy and romantic bars across the city for the perfect date night. Thank me later.
If you’re anything like me then you probably spend a good 80% of your week counting down to the weekend. Whether I’ve got 2 days of back to back plans or a weekend of watching Netflix stretching out in front of me, nothing gets my heart a flutter quite like that Friday feeling. Back in my student days Saturday nights were spent stumbling through Concert Square with some cheesy chips in my hand at 3am. Now I’m a sophisticated adult (insert scoff here) however I like to find some alternative ways to spend my evenings. Here are my top ways to spend a Saturday night in Liverpool…
2018 marks the 5th year that I’ve been living in Liverpool (sorry Mum) and in that time I’ve developed a penchant for red salt on my chips, discovered that tequila actually can taste alright when it’s blackcurrant flavoured and realised that when your boyfriend is a Liverpool fan you really do just have to accept that you’ll always be one place behind his beloved reds. That being said there is still a whole host of things on my Liverpool to-do list. Instead of boring you with my new years resolutions (start the gym blah blah blah) I thought I’d share my New Years Liverutions (??) e.g. the things I want to tick of my Liverpool bucket list this year. So without further ado….
If I could have gotten away with it I would have probably written this post in June but I held off for a slightly more appropriate time. In case you hadn’t yet gathered, I LOVE Christmas. It seems about 5 minutes ago that we were eating all the mince pies and blasting Michael Buble every hour of the day but hey, I sure as hell ain’t complaining that it’s time to do that allll over again. If you’re spending any time in Liverpool this December then look no further than my guide to celebrating the run up to the big day in the ‘pool.
Sometimes you go out for a meal and you find yourself waiting for the dessert menu to be rolled out. You make your way through a perfectly tasty starter and main meal but you know full well it’s the pudding that’s gunna seal the deal. And then all of a sudden your dining partner drops the “I couldn’t eat another thing” line and the prospect of something gooey, sweet and chocolatey is looking less and less likely. Sound familiar? If so then the new Heavenly Desserts cafe/restaurant in Liverpool ONE could be the perfect location. After all, there’s no way of missing out on your sweet treat if you’re at a place solely dedicated to desserts is there?
When October hits, my inner Kevin McCallister is itching to get out and spread some Christmas joy. For most people though, it’s still a bit too soon to be uttering words such as tinsel and mince pie. Therefore I tend to put all of my festive fever into celebrating halloween with a bang. Luckily for me (and you) Liverpool has plenty of spooky shenanigans to keep you occupied over the most chilling celebration of all.
There are a few ways to this gal’s heart but a good burger is up there in the top 3. When I went to sample the menu at Archies as part of their Free Shake Friday’s promotion (more on that later) I was spoilt for choice. With a menu containing everything from burgers and hotdogs to wraps, wings and waffles picking my dinner was no easy task. In the end though, a good ol’ burger is always gunna come out on top.
