I’ve been a huge fan of Independent Liverpool for ages. In fact they’re one of my favourite things about Liverpool. If you haven’t already heard of them (where have you been?!), they’re two best mates dedicated to supporting, promoting and helping independent Liverpool business grow – from the smallest ones to the ones already standing on their own two feet and rocking it. They have a website which lists a ton of independent businesses who have got involved with their Independent Liverpool card – a super cheap (£15 for one or 2 for £20!) card that gives you all kinds of wild discounts at said independent businesses. Super cool, right?
As well as a really useful website and a nifty card they also do a ton of very cool events themselves and promote other independent events within the city. What one of my favourite things about Independent Liverpool is, is that they continually innovate and announce new, exciting things…the newest and most exciting of which is the Baltic Market!
I love a bar with some big light up letters!
I’ve lived in Liverpool my whole life, apart from travelling and some summer spent in different parts of the UK. I think I can comfortably class myself as having done all the major things to do in Liverpool – all our museums (and boy do we have A LOT of museums), I’ve visited our iconic and amazing waterfront, our football stadiums, our Philharmonic Orchestra, our Echo Arena…basically you name it. But my favourite thing about Liverpool is that things are always changing and there is always something new to do, somewhere new opened to check out, or something relaunched. Literally a week has never passed without a message pinging up in mine and my gal pals group chat of a link and then ‘Oh my god we have GOT to check this out!”. So, with that in mind, I decided to make a bucket list of all the new and exciting things in Liverpool that I have on my to do list..and as I work my way through and tick them off, I’ll share reviews. Enjoy!
Some of you will already know, but if you don’t, I turned 24 this week! I’ve had a wonderful week of celebrations with family, friends and work pals, but one of the highlights was a big family meal that we had at The Quarter in Liverpool City Centre.
