I just assumed that the tattoo place was the one just off bold street based on LFCs reply. Knowing the location, Salt House Bacaro is a decent shout.

Heading up on Sat with some of the boys. They're all cunts these days so looking for late bars rather than clubs… Where should I look out for?

Hope street is nice but bit of a walk from where the wedding is. Can you not stay in the hotel where the wedding is shego?

Ah right. Can recommend Hotel Indigo and Ibis Style which are both a 5-10 minute walk away

For some reason my girlfriend wants to go to Liverpool tomorrow.

Any recommendation for interesting stuff to do?

Museums/galleries/shops?

Good but not too expensive places to eat?

Also, where's best to park?

I went last week. First time so could be wrong!
Parking - Q Park under Liverpool One looked pretty central.
Loads of mainstream restaurants there as well.
Albert Dock/Docks in general had a good range of museums, plus there is a Lichtenstein exhibition on at the Tate in the dock I think as well.
Most of the shops are high street, but you have Tessuti, Flannels and this place as well. Part of JD and in Liverpool One.

Hope that helps.

Basement of St. George’s hall, used to be the processing cells for the court above. Also Sefton palm house is sick.

QPark is central, but it is also a little on the pricey side. St John's Shopping Centre parking is cheaper in my opinion, but have a look on Parkopedia, there's plenty of options.

In terms of cheap food, I'd recommend Bakchich (Lebanese street food). It's smack bang in the centre, on the cheaper side and has always been excellent when I've been there. If you're into Japanese, I'd recommend Etsu. It's in the middle of the business district, so seems mad out of place, but it's great value and top quality. Otherwise I'd recommend walking up Castle Street, and the streets off of it - there are loads of nice places to eat. And if you are around Castle Street, go into Moose Coffee - probably the best coffee I've had after Bold Street Coffee (which is closed at the moment).

If you just fancy going for a wander I'd take a walk up to see the 'Bombed-out church', the Georgian Quarter and The Baltic Triangle - the latter is the current up and coming place for new bars, restaurants etc (worth the 5-10min walk from the centre imo)

Didn't know you could get tours of St George's. Will have to check it out.

O yeah I also have a mate who is a bar/restaurant magnate up there; he has Salt Dog Slims and Santa chupito (and a couple others that I’ve forgotten so maybe ask around) which are nice places for a drink and Maray which does great Mediterranean food. Also the most popular craft beer is Neck Oil which is great to hear in a scouse accent.

Salt Dog Slims is great for BBQ

Mowgli is amazing for Indian street food.

Tate

Q Park is pricey but perfectly placed really.

The Beatles Story Museum is excellent IMO. Take in Mathew Street afterwards and visit the Cavern Club. A must if a Beatles fan. Pump House good for food. The Shipping Forecast also good for food and drinks on a Saturday night as it gets lively early.

I like to go for a walk from the Docks to top of Liverpool cathedral via Bold Street*.

*find the shop with a well inside it which has an interesting back story.
