Liverpool is buzzing – ablaze with life and laughter and moderately loose living. At Priory House, you can put yourself in the epicentre of this funstorm and mint some fresh memories that will last you a lifetime. The keys to the bars, the bites and the Baltic Triangle are yours for the turning. Just bring 18 stags, hens or other cuddly animals.
Priory House sits within a long throw-in of Anfield. On the other side of Stanley Park is Goodison, home of the mortal enemy. So you won’t want for football. If you can’t get tickets, get seated around the Sky TVs, open the window to let the match atmosphere in and break out the beers.
Just a few blocks away, good times await in the shape of superclubs and dance warehouses, real-ale pubs, concept bars and comedy spots, the Cavern Club, tequilarias and teahouses. On the way home, stop the taxi early and raid the Priory Road takeaways like Happy Villa, Amalfi Pizza and Jumbo Cafe.
You’ve got all you need to feed your minor army – oven, hob, microwave and a dishwasher for when you’re done. Load it up, pop a pod in the Nespresso and get the game on. There’s seating for 12 inside, and the tables and chairs on the terrace are good for al-fresco feasts.
If you’d prefer to Just Eat, consider any number of takeaways on Priory Road. Got Italian at the Amalfi Takeaway, tuck into British fish and chips at Happy Villa, or try the Sri Lankan specials at Jasmine’s Restaurant and Takeaway. There’s Chinese at the Golden Dragon and Indian at the Anfield Balti.
Up for the match? Eat out at the sports-themed Boot Room Café with highback chairs, booths and big screens. Check in for breakfasts, lunches, daily specials, cakes and sweet treats at Kemp’s Bistro. Pack in some protein at the Churrasco Steakhouse. Or chase away last night’s excesses with a fry-up at the Georgie Porgy Café.
In town, pick from Italian, French, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese and more. There’s Indian at Yukti Street Fusion or Remora, and huge hunks of beef at Cowshed. Try dining on the fine side at The Art School or The Puffin’ Rooms, complete with side order of jazz. Or go cheap and cheerful at Carlisi or Lucy in the Sky.
Bedrooms here are far from simply functional. Six of them sleep 19, featuring natty, contemporary shades of grey with mirrored Venetian bedside drawers, pure-white walls, slick blinds and 50” wall TVs with Sky and Freeview. BT internet will keep your streaming and social media in order.

Bedroom five sleeps three in a double and single, sharing a bathroom with bedroom six, which offers two singles. All bedrooms offer hairdryers. Get to the game, get out to the Triangle and come home to sleep it all off in cosy, comfortable beds just a hobble and a stagger from the hub of the action.
