Hospitality on a winning streak for the Grand National at Aintree

Titanic Liverpool

Everyone has a Grand National story. When still a school girl I placed a bet (was that even legal) on a 100/5 total outsider and won. My only regret! As a family we always shared our winnings. Not really a regret. Such a fun day. We used to meet, as a family, at the Chester races every year, and on occasion, with friends at the National. Now I just hope for sunny weather for Ladies Day, for all those fabulous women in glorious outfits that will not bear bad weather. The hospitality on offer is a sure thing: not a long shot at all. You can bet your shirt on it.

Tonight Josephine is celebrating Aintree Races for the first time after landing in Liverpool back in October.

To mark the occasion in the city, Liverpool’s sassiest bar will be hosting a show stopping Ladies Night to welcome Aintree’s most glamorous from 8pm until late on Friday 14th April.

There’s free Tequila Rose cocktails up for grabs. All racegoers need to do is show their Aintree Ticket to receive one on arrival.

Hosting the raciest race-day rendezvous to hit Liverpool, Tonight Josephine will have DJs serving up the best tunes, as well as a racy surprise… Think strippers!

Doors will open from 4pm for those who want to get the party started that little bit earlier.

Tonight Josephine’s Ladies Day drag queen hosts, Debbie and Minnie, said: “Aintree Races is one of the biggest calendar events in the city… We couldn’t be more excited to celebrate at Tonight Josephine for the first time in Liverpool. 

“By the time everyone’s been to Aintree, they’re ready to continue the party and we’re here to bring it! From 8pm. Tonight Josephine will be the only way to spend Ladies Day evening for the ultimate girls night out. We’re even throwing in a free cocktail for racegoers. Simply show your Aintree Races ticket, and we’ll treat you to a complimentary Tequila Rose cocktail …Then lap up our amazing entertainment.”

Liverpool will come alive with race-goers, party goers, and those who follow the crowd to the National. So many options: the Metquarter Food Hall, Gino D’Acampo’s 360 Sky Bar and Alberts Schloss.

Before you know it, it will be Eurovision. All this and heavenly cocktails too.

Borrowed from ‘Meet me in St Louis’: Don’t tell me the lights are shining any place but here in Liverpool.
