Last Saturday was date night for the hub and I, a much anticipated occurrence when you have a couple of mini monsters! We enjoy this quality time together immensely and I think it’s so important as a couple to get dressed up, go somewhere nice and enjoy each others company. With the craziness of being parents, working and bills to pay, it becomes quite easy to become passing ships in the night, it’s really nice to be reminded of why you actually like the person you’re with. So we headed over to Studio 2, Liverpool’s legendary recording studio, bands such as Coldplay, Take that, Snow Patrol, Moby and Bjork (to name a few) have recorded there. This place is definitely a must for any music lovers out there, I actually had my 30th birthday party here, I fell in love with the décor and atmosphere. It has since been took over, but certainly hasn’t lost any of the original charm, if anything it is better! There is a host of musical events throughout the week, ranging from Jazz artists, Soulful bands, Weekend dj’s and an eclectic mix of musicians, Something for everyone. The food is delicious, tapas style, you can create your own board to share, perfect, as that way you get to try everything. As always we ordered far to much, the portion sizes are overly generous for the price. And I have to just say, the banoffee pie is the best I’ve ever tasted. We were treated to the talents of two fabulous artists, the first a pretty little thing named Lauren Mcgee, her voice was beautiful and she had a folky style charm about her, so soothing. Next up was the amazing Soweto Kinch (Check him out on youtube) who is an award winning alto-saxophonist and MC. He was performing material off his new album ‘The legend of Mike Smith’ which draws on the seven deadly sins and tells the tale of a young MC caught in the very modern world of temptation, the political messages in his music are incredible and he is nothing short of a lyrical genius. If you like Jazz and you like Hip-Hop this is the man for you. All in all we had a lovely night, great food, wine, music and cocktails (The French martinis are a little piece of heaven!) If you want a cosy night full of entertainment, you should get your little booties over there immediately. I wore one of my favourite Vivienne Westwood suits (My number one designer of all time, but that’s a whole other post!) with black ankle boots from Zara. Hope you are all enjoying your weekend, I’m just about to crack open a nice bottle of red, Cheers!
