THE PHILHARMONIC DINING ROOMS ARE REALLY NICE FOR A GIN.

Have never liked Gin however was in Glasgow with the daughter who orderd a gin and tonic the gin came with green and red chillies floating in it. Curious i tried a sip then ordered one for myself very nice called Maker Gin brewed in Glasgow.

Very impressed so far. Not a all like I imagined. Very impressive buildings. Massive town centre. Docks have all been rejuvenated and I haven't been robbed. Dining experience good and I don't need to drink tenants. Awesome

Yep been in the Phil afew times and think the toilets are listed so cannot be changed so people walk in and take a look , abit disconcerting when you are taking a leak.

Forgot to mention you can go up St.Johns Beacon too which is the big tower thing in the middle of town, great views if its clear

This is probably the only major City in the UK I haven't been to but in light of positive reports from recent visitors I'm heading  down there with my good lady for a couple of days to check it out. Anyone been there. Any suggestions what to do there apart from the Beatles and the Docks.

Ive lived in Liverpool and the surrounding areas since 1988

Based on the comments so far ?

I think he would be enquiring about safe parking and picking up a cheap car cd player.


However, I’d also like to know what a good day / night in Liverpool has to offer

Typical I'm off home tomorrow and you appear at the last minute as the tour guide. I've been staying in the city centre and done a lot of the touristy stuff. Very impressed. Eaten an drank far too much. Not in a drunken manner of course but I'm about too burst. Haven't been clubbing or anything. Way past that now but me and the good lady have had a great time. Liverpool is a lovely city. Much better than I anticipated.

I love Liverpool. Cavern definitely worth a visit. Do the Magical Mystery Tour. I'm not a Beatles fan but  I enjoyed both. Cavern had a Beatles tribute act on who were very, very good.  Also check this out

Isn't that the norm, my brother works in Liverpool & I've been down a few time and whenever I've been in that's been the case. Have seen Swedish (excellent) & a Japanese (average) tributes play there, I guess they must've payed their own way over. I wonder if they have to pass an audition before they got on. Perhaps not as The Beatles were originally regarded as being very ropey on stage, in fact when other Liverpool bands heard they ( The Beatles) were getting a booking in Hamburg they signed a petition to have it cancelled - hilarious in hindsight! :lol
