Sample the City’s Many Delights

WHETHER you're looking for a night of entertainment or somewhere to dine for the evening, you can find everything you need in Liverpool.

Whether you head north or south of the city centre, or even along the many surrounding streets from the main hustle and bustle, there's plenty of places to enjoy a bite to eat.

From traditional hearty pub lunches to the heights of fine dining, the city caters for everyone's tastes.

There's French cuisine, succulent steak houses, Chinese banquets offering a wide choice, Italian dishes from pizza with friends to a romantic pasta meal accompanied by wine, Japanese delicacies, and wholesome Indian meals, as well as delicious Spanish tapas.

The establishments are ready to cater for all your needs, whether you're after a cosy setting for two with romantic candlelight or a table big enough for 20 people who are set to party the night away with friends.

It's not just the food you need to think about. Along with your budget, the restaurant styles can vary greatly, whether you're after somewhere offering modern classics with a contemporary feel, true fine dining, maybe somewhere a little more relaxed but with live singers you can enjoy, or a place to take the children so the whole family can enjoy themselves. Some local establishments truly cater for your little ones, with special menus and even a play area they can tire themselves out on after they've eaten, so you can have time to relax, too!

You may be looking for somewhere to chill out after work, a family party or a work night out - there's a whole host of choice, plus, with Christmas fast approaching, now's the time to book your favourite restaurant to ensure you're not disappointed.

Many establishments have already released their festive menu with set prices so you can budget in advance, with everything available from the traditional Christmas lunch to seafood and delicious vegetarian options.

Once you've tantalised your tastebuds, why not soak in the culture of the city, whether it's catching the latest blockbuster at the cinema, visiting the numerous museums, or admiring the latest artwork throughout the city.

Not forgetting the number of venues that can offer a great evening of entertainment, from thrilling theatre productions, catching a laugh at the comedy clubs, watching the next up-and- coming band in your local, taking a gamble at a casino or enjoying a show at the Echo Arena - there's something for everyone.

Many of the outer city centre bars and pubs tend to have extra entertainment, too, whether it's a quiz night where you can show off your talent, karaoke lining you up for the next X-Factor or even a spot of bingo to get you jumping out your seat.

Make the most of Liverpool - go out and enjoy yourself.
