PSA: Netflix and chill is dead, here are the best ideas for a Scouse date

Let the lovers see the pool x

If you’re finding it hard to convince your boyfriend to go to all your fave coffee shops or take cute Sunday walks in Seffy Park, or your girlfriend is sick of watching Netflix in Crown Place all weekend, here are some suggestions to get the ball rolling on your romantic weekend for two and show you actually know your way around the city you’re alway dragging them to.

Baltic markets

This industrial-style food court with street food, picnic tables and a massive outdoor area, located on Stanhope Street in the Baltic triangle, is a perfect idea to take your significant other.

It’s suitable for day or night, and great if you want those chilled vibes rather than a night out, especially if you haven’t seen them in a while.

The live music defo gives the place a lovely atmosphere; add this with two bars and a huge range of food and you’ll never leave dissatisfied.

Anfield Stadium

Although this is perhaps one typically for the boys, it makes a great day out for anyone. There are various different tours available at Anfield, enough to keep you occupied on any budget.

Even if your other half doesn’t support the reds, it’s still an enjoyable activity to fill up an afternoon!

Think outside of the box

If you fancy something a bit different, how about you try the likes of NQ64, Lane7 or Roxy Ballroom?

NQ64 boasts choices of old school arcade games and consoles, and a great drinks list with themed cocktails.

Lane7 is a neon-covered bowling alley decked out with ping-pong tables, ensuring you have a fun-filled date night.

Finally, at Roxy Ballroom you can take your pick from a bunch of fun bar games, including pool, beer pong, shuffleboard and ping-pong – you’d defo need to book in advance, though!

Wanting something more obvious? Take your partner along to the classic Ghetto Golf or Junkyard Golf.

Fancy dinner

You and your bae wanting to splash the cash this weekend? It might be nice to get dressed up, head to a fancy restaurant and forget you are a skint student for one night.

Some of our recommendations would include NYL; a New York inspired restaurant & bar that makes you feel you’ve been transported out of Liverpool for the night.

The Florist is also a firm favourite among students and Scousers alike because of it’s dreamy decor and classy atmosphere.

Lastly, Gusto’s is always a shout to rely on, and the fact it’s located on the docks as well is a bonus for the great views.

Everyman cinema

If you are on the hunt for a different cinema experience to the Odeon in town, then check out the Everyman cinema in the Metquater.

Relax on the luxury sofas and grab a pizza or burger brought to you on seated service. Pair this with an unreal cocktail and a fab film, and you’re sorted for the evening. This defo stands out from other cinemas obviously, so we don’t think we need to convince you anymore, right?

Albert Dock

This leads us on to probably the most obvious choice, which is the famous Liverpool docks. Take your partner along here for nice walk, meal, coffee or museum trip on a nice afternoon. The range of things to do means you’ll never get bored!
