8 things you can do in Liverpool with your best mate when WhatsApp has a wobble

A fair few of us thought the world was coming to an end last night as Whatsapp suffered another bout of ‘technical issues’.

Rocked by the thought of having to talk to each other (or switch straight to Facebook messenger to find out WTF is going on) we thought seeing as the sun is shining, we’d give our texting thumbs a break and get together in IRL instead. With the warm, dry weather set to last all weekend long, we’ve put together a list of 8 places to check out with your bestie when WhatsApp has a wobble.

1 – Take the group chat to the Botanical Gin Garden

Sunshine, Gin, lush food and a beautiful outdoor space to drink and chat and generally have a laugh. What more could you ask for? Botanical Garden info and opening hours here.

2 – Don’t share meme’s, make them at Camp & Furnace

The Guide Liverpool, Nightlife

With Bongo’s Bingo, Quiz Nights, Comedy shows, NightGarden feasts and festivals taking place very week at Camp & Furnace, you can create a whole camera roll of memories at a different event almost every night! Check out the calendar of events here.

3 – Gossip Girls lunch at Relish, Rose Lane

For a stylish lunch spot that doesn’t involve heading into the city, stop by Relish on Rose Lane, Mossley Hill for Fizzy Fridays. Pimp your Prosecco, tuck  into posh fish and chips or go 241 on cocktails from 4pm till 7pm. More details here.

4 – Experience a West End toe-tapper as Billy Elliot comes to the Empire

For an unforgettable night out, head to the Liverpool Empire and experience West End hit show, Billy Elliot. Packed with singalong songs, northern humour and a sensational storyline, its an unmissable performance. Tickets here.

5 – Indulge in Afternoon Tea at Neighbourhood….and stay for dinner too!

All gossip sessions should be accompanied by freshly-made cakes, finger sandwiches and fizz and Neighbourhood, Castle Street invite you to chill in their stunning dining room and bar with a luxurious Afternoon Tea. More here.

6 – Grab a bike and ride the city streets til sunset

We’re going for a triple whammy again here combining exercise, brilliant laughs and a bit of sight-seeing as well! Even if you haven’t got a bike, rent a city bike instead and razz around the city streets til the sunsets over the dock!

7 – Glam up and knock on the Red Door for cocktails

Still one of the city’s hottest bars and with the added beauty of the roof top terrace, why would you go anywhere else for glammed up cocktails with your bestie? Sign up to be a member here and reap the discounts and queue jump benefits!

8 – Face mask selfies and chill at Lifestyle Collective
