The Baltic triangle is definitely the creative hub of Liverpool at the moment.

There are a few venues etc listed here:

News From Nowhere, the radical bookshop on Bold Street, often has info about interesting happenings in the city.

It's my dad's birthday soon and he wants to go out for cocktails (we went to the Clock works in parr street last time I was up and it whet his appetite )

We're going out to eat later in Duke Street so places around Berry Street etc

berry and Rye is nice but I doubt it's bookable-is it?

Any ideas Merseyside people?

Berry & Rye is lovely. We went on a Thursday so wasn’t too busy.

I had a suggestion of Mowgli as a place to eat when I last visited which was lush.

I love the grapes when I'm back home visiting. Proper old style pub. Used to climb into the bombed out church after closing with some plonk for me and my mates and a lovely homeless guy called Peter. Happy days.

Hi , going back to Liverpool in May & going to Invisible Wind Factory for all day music event.

looking for a air b&b for 5 people - what areas are close by please or where would you recommend?

I'd recommend Aigburth/sefton park. Good vegetarian places to eat in lark lane. There's loads of huge houses. Had a quick look and it averages about 90 quid a night. Looks like a minimum 2 night stay though. Or you could try the Georgian quarter which is closer, but they seem to have a minimum 2 night stay also.

Thank you.
What do you reckon to Bootle? Have found a nice house there.

we are doing 2 night. Driving from Brum after Oh Sees gig then hopefully a decent night sleep!

If it's cheap and you;re just using it to sleep in then you can get a fairly cheap delta taxi back to Bootle,
In it's self there isn't really anything in Bootle to entertain

I'd also do Aigburth/ Sefton Park or Georgian quarter especially if there are five of you so the cost is shared more easily.

Thank you.

so place I have found is more Crosby though I put Bootle into air b&b. I have been round there before for ‘Another Place’.

The ideal would be close to venue but due to ££ that’s not possible.

I’m warming to idea of hangover by the beach!

Crosby isn't close to the centre but you've got the beach, which is great.

Are you in a car?

Another option is Wavertree. There's one for £130 a night. It'll be a typical red brick terraced house, not much in the area itself but very close to the motorway, the city centre and a short drive from Sefton Park/ Lark Lane.

I'd do Wavertree. It's not expensive, it's dead easy off the M62, easy into town (buses and train). And an easy drive to Lark Lane for breakfast/brunch/lunch on Sunday.

When I looked I couldn't see anything that seemed worth the price in Aigburth or the Georgian Quarter. There's not a lot of choice!

Go with wavertree. Crosby is okay for the beach and Anthony gormley statues but the pubs are shite.

I'm tired.
Went out in Liverpool over Christmas, first time in about ten years. Went to Bakchich, a Lebanese street food place on Bold Street. Was very good and not particularly pricey :)

We have requested to book the Bootle house which is actually in Waterloo. It’s a good price (£60 each for 2 nights), gives us 3 rooms & a hangover by the beach.

Thanks for help & suggestions, very much appreciated.
