5 things to do in Liverpool this month

5 things to do in Liverpool this month

If you’re looking for what’s on in Liverpool then take some inspiration from our suggestions below.

1) Try a new restaurant

Last year brought us a plethora of new restaurants to try, cementing Liverpool as an excitingly diverse food lover’s dream. The restaurant design is as much at the forefront of people’s minds as the food nowadays, when it comes to trying new places, and one of our own recent additions ticks the box for eccentricity.

Cosy Club is a feast for the eyes, as well as the appetite. The quirky decor makes it a must-visit this month, with the eclectic furniture, fascinating portraits lining the walls and the brilliantly kitsch light fixtures. The menu doesn’t disappoint either, featuring a full offering of breakfast, lunch and dinner, and an extensive drinks menu.

2) Gin tasting

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a gin connoisseur, want to learn more about the spirit, or just want an excuse to drink it, book yourself onto Lunya’s Gin Tasting night. You’ll hear about how gin is made, taste a variety of gins and try a variety of tapitas and ingredients to go with them. Plus, you’ll receive a 10% off any gin purchased on the night.

Gin tasting at Lunya takes place on 26 January 2017, 6.30pm – 8.30pm. For more information and to book, visit Lunya Liverpool.

3) Watch a film

The kids are back to school so take advantage of a quieter cinema and take a trip to the ODEON. We recommend ‘A Monster Calls’ – a moving film about bullied boy struggling to cope with his mother’s illness. He escapes into a world of fantasy when a monster appears to guide him on a journey on courage and faith. Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones and Liam Neeson star.

4) See some art

One of Britain’s most renowned artworks of the past 20 years, Tracey Emin’s ‘My Bed’ 1998, is in the North for the first time. Take a visit to Tate Liverpool this month to see ‘Tracey Emin and William Blake in Focus’. Tate compare their important works, finding a surprising link between the two artists and demonstrating a shared concern with birth, death and spirituality.

‘Tracey Emin and William Blake in Focus’ is on until 3 September 2017. Admission is free. For more information, visit Tate Liverpool.

5) Sales shopping

Of course, being January, we can’t ignore the Winter sales, and why would we want to? There are an abundance of great offers to be taken advantage of, and with a number of well-loved brands joining us in the past year, such as The White Company, Skechers and Bravissimo, there’s more variety than ever. Have a look at our ‘7 ways to beat the sales rush‘ post to get ahead of the crowds and shop smarter.
