“Love thy neighbour as yourself, but choose your neighbourhood.” - Louise Lester Beal
Following our glamorous day of fashion shows and celebrity talks at the British Style Collective, my friend and I were looking for somewhere equally as glitzy to have dinner.
We landed on Neighbourhood Liverpool, having visited the sister restaurant in Manchester last year. With a focus on live music and cocktails, it was the perfect place to continue our stylish weekend.
Set in an imposing Grade II-listed building on Castle Street, built in 1868 for the Alliance Bank, it has recently been renovated into an elegant restaurant with a pop twist. Pink parlour seating and marble tables under 80s neon signs give the space a laid back Miami vibe.
The menu is described as all-day brasserie style with European and new American cuisine influences. Offering breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner, as well as a vibrant bar area, Neighbourhood has something for everyone to “Dine. Drink. Dance.”
I had a beetroot salad and my friend had an aubergine bake. We both ordered a side of the most delicious roasted sweet potato wedges (so tasty they were hoovered up before I remembered to photograph them. Bad blogger, but a good excuse for a return visit!)
For pudding my friend had lemon meringue pie while I couldn’t resist the chocolate bomb.
Service was excellent and the atmosphere was buzzing. Our seats were perfectly elevated so that we could people watch across the bar.
We enjoyed ourselves so much we returned the following morning for Sunday brunch.
Breakfasts have really taken off in this area of Liverpool and Neighbourhood has jumped on this opportunity to offer a bottomless brunch menu. Available on Saturdays and Sundays only, diners can enjoy unlimited Prosecco, Cocktails or Bloody Marys alongside a range of delicious breakfast dishes for just £35.00.
The venue also offers two private dining rooms catering for upwards of 30 guests and a mezzanine level which is also available for private functions.
As well as the Manchester and Liverpool sites, Neighbourhood is opening a third venue in Leeds next month.
Regardless of when you visit, be it in the evening for cocktails or a hangover brunch the following day, make sure you dress to impress!
