Things to do:

The city’s Beatles themed hotel is lots of fun. Rooms are smallish, but there’s just enough Fab Four paraphernalia to keep die-hard fans happy, while not turning the hotel into a tacky theme park. Blakes restaurant serves modern British food but is somewhat hit and miss – and not cheap, but the service is strong.

Hari’s Bar blends Eastern mysticism with a Scouse twist, and, of course, Beatles music is piped into the room’s high-end hi-fi system. Hard Days Night Hotel is well positioned for Mathew Street and Liverpool ONE.
