City Breaks

It’s been a week since the Easter Bank holiday and if you’re anything like us you’d be feeling sad and sorry for yourself! So, to brighten up your day and ours we’re focusing on the city escapes we can have in our own backyards. So get ready to repeat the festivities of last weekend – eat, drink and inhale chocolate (because, well, delish!).

LONDON

Eat: Duck & Waffle 

In the mood to impress? Then take your pals to Duck & Waffle, located on the 40th floor, the views of London are unforgettable, second to their brunch of course – obviously the waffles are a must.

Drink: The Blues Kitchen 

Booze and blues, sounds alright! Known for their live music and with three locos (Brixton, Shoreditch and Camden) you can’t go wrong with The Blues Kitchen.

See and do: God’s Own Junk Yard 

All of the lights, all of the lights – step into Chris Bracey’s bright world of neon signs and retro movie displays. Wander through the coloured collection and then head to The Rolling Scones Cafe.

BRISTOL

Eat: CHOMP 

It’s all about the steak. We could say more, but we won’t. You just have to try it.

Drink: Hyde & Co 

MUST VISIT: Every city has their secret spot and Hyde & Co is Bristol’s. This secretive cocktail bar is hard to find, only a bowler hat sign leads the way. Once you ring the bell and are invited in, wander over to the bookcase. Pick the right book and a secret room will reveal itself to you.

See and do: Bristol Tandem Hire 

Tandem bike touring has never been cooler, are we right? Discover the city of colour and culture with your best mate behind you all the way – supportive friends are the best.

LIVERPOOL

Eat: Matou

We might be getting too ahead of ourselves but it’s meant to be Spring, right? Perched above the Mersey Ferry Terminal Building is Matou, an amazing pan Asian restaurant. Enjoy the view under the sun.

Drink: Black Lodge Brewing 

It ain’t cheap but it’s worth the treat! The Black Lodge Brewery make some of best drops in all of Liverpool, we have no doubt you’ll be taste testing them all.

See and do: Ghetto Golf 

Looking for something a little different to do this Friday night? Hit up Ghetto Golf, formally a brewery this space has a major cool factor. There’s also a cocktail bar outside so you’re sweet for the night.
