Where to eat and drink close by?
Stay in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle and trust us, you’ll never be bored!
Grab a coffee and start the day right at Unit 51 on Jamaica Street, just a stone's throw away. It offers a chilled vibe which makes it ideal for catching up with friends or even getting the laptop out and finishing off some work.
One of the area’s biggest concentration of eateries lies on Bold Street - just a 10-15 minute walk from your Urbana apartment. Try East Avenue Bakehouse, perfect if you want breakfast or brunch with that little ‘something, something’. They offer the most delicious breakfast and 'Weekend Brunch' options, where you'll feel like you’re eating in a vintage New York diner.
If you’re as obsessed with brunch as we are but don’t like getting up at the crack of dawn, then The Brunch Club on Duke Street can be your saviour. They offer brunch until 5pm every day! They do all your favourites too, like a Full English and Eggs Benedict, but also push the envelope with drinks such as rum mixed with Coco-Pop infused milk. And if you cannot face the day without a Bloody Mary, they’ll fix one of those for you as well.
When you’re looking for a venue that combines a cool restaurant, bar and social space, head to Baltic Social on the ground floor of Elevator Studios, literally just around the corner from your apartment. They offer regular music events, interviews and intimate performances known as ‘The Baltic Sessions’. Also, if you're wanting an Afternoon Tea with a difference, they offer a 'Punk Tea'! Expect Reuben sandwiches, rosemary garlic fries and salted caramel popcorn brownies.
Another unique venue in the heart of the Baltic Triangle is Camp & Furnace. Located in a former warehouse, it’s not just a restaurant and bar, it also plays host to an indoor festival site, music venue, pop-up event space and conference location. Perfect if you’re looking for somewhere different for your next conference or are planning on meeting with a large group of friends. All of their upcoming events can be found on their website.
One of our favourite new places is Neighbourhood, a hip bar and restaurant on Castle Street. Be warned: you’ll need to book in advance, although as we always say, a little planning makes for a great night!
Our neighbours Albert Dock and Liverpool One have some firm favourites. Firstly the Dock offers everything from Italian to Indian, all on a beautiful waterfront location, together with comedy, live music, DJs and fab nightlife. There are too many great places to count in Liverpool One but we can personally vouch for Chaophraya (Thai) and Jamie Oliver's Italian. Lots of easy eating options here too, such as Carluccio's, Wagamama and Nando's.
And if you’re looking to dance the night away, Haus nightclub will beckon you to the dance floor with its electronic beats and impressive warehouse setup.
Top 5 things to do in Liverpool with children, the little VIPs - 'Days out North West'
Mersey Ferry – No trip to Liverpool would be complete without experiencing the world-famous Ferry ‘cross the Mersey. The little ones will learn lots about Liverpool and you can sit back and enjoy the impressive view. Or travel around the city in a yellow submarine, culminating in a tour on water around the docks.
World Museum Liverpool – We love letting our kids loose here. They’re fascinated by the colonies of insects and life-size dinosaurs, with an array of hands on activities in the award winning Clore Natural History Centre.

The Beatles Story – They might be too young to know the music, but children will still love discovering The Beatles Story. They’ll learn about the Cavern Club, the hysteria of Beatlemania and the groovy psychedelia of Sgt. Pepper. Who doesn’t love a story about four lads who became the biggest band in the world?
