77 Bold Street, Liverpool L1 4EZ, England
A welcomed new addition to Liverpool’s ever expanding Foodie quarter that is Bold Street.
Dia + Noche restaurant and bar is bright, lively, fresh, funky and perfect for if you want to pop in for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or beyond with its late night DJ sessions taking you on into the wee small hours
The seasonal menu (that is apparently refreshed every six months) covers four sections: breakfast, brunch, lunch and tapas (served only in the evenings). There’s traditional breakfasts, a huge choice of sandwiches (cold and warm) dishes such as wild mushroom rarebit, pasta & linguine plates, minted lamb and feta burger (which was moist and delicious) or action packed iberican platters and of course, a wide selection of desserts to boot.
There’s even a quieter (but equally as stylish) upstairs section that by day is relaxed and by night, vibrant, fun and frequented by local artists, musicians and locals
With its ornate high ceilings, tasteful furnishings, contemporary lighting and creative wall art, this is a great place to hang out both day and night with great food (and drinks) on offer at the same time.

12 Tithebarn Street, Liverpool L2 2DT
A beautifully designed and atmospheric space that we would highly recommended. HUS (house in Swedish) offers the true feel of a modern and cool Scandinavian café, bar and restaurant.
This Scandinavian inspired social space, sits nicely in what is known as Liverpool’s commercial district and hotly rumoured to be the next big foodie area in town. This bright, light and very, very stylish venue captures the Scandinavian experience to a tee, without even having to leave the city.
Based in the impressive Tempest Building (you can’t miss it, a 5 foot Tempest sign sits directly outside the front door) there’s a seated courtyard area right up front, an entrance covered in green plants and a music and events space down in the basement (KOLBOX, apparently free to hire).
Inside the main space, there are high tables, low tables, sofas and booths and the bar runs the length of the back wall, offering light beers (local and international) cocktails, soft drinks and hot drinks and a selection of Scandinavian treats from Smorgasbord (freshly made Open sandwiches) to Swedish meatballs, seven days a week.
We fell in love with this place, the minute we walked through the door, understated design, food and drinks but an overstated effect, taste and vibe. Don’t miss it for a lunch stop over or drinks into the evening.
5 Brunswick Street, Liverpool L2 0UU
‘More’ glamour and luxury offered up from this ever changing an evolving city, The Alchemist can be found housed in a Historical Grade II listed building, right in the heart of Liverpool’s Financial District.

Go on we dare you, If you love crazy cocktails and the element of surprise, then go visit, it’s a great night out of fun, food and music and there’s even a resident Dj spinning some great tunes long into the night.

Relatively new to the Liverpool Foodie Scene, Castle Street Townhouse offers effortless and elegant dining both day and night, presenting a quality food experience from breakfast to brunch, lunch to dinner your whole experience will be helped along from the happy, helpful and very friendly staff.
There’s a breakfast-themed Afternoon Tea or Bottomless Brunch, serving full menu choices including, Eggs anyway you want them, French toast, Pancakes, assorted pastries, a selection of fresh fruit and lashings of bubbles, to name but a few. A the choices on the dinner menu did not disappoint, there even an evening meal deal, two courses and a bottle of the house wine (White, Red or Rose) for £20, who could say no to that!.
After being told they had taken their inspiration from “New York’s socialite culture” we could easily see and fell that in the atmosphere and décor, fresh, simple and effective. The bar is classy, the restaurant comfortable (they even have booths) and the sofas area plush, this does feel like a top city townhouse with everything to offer.
