The Metquarter has always been a class act. It just keeps getting more exciting with each new addition. The Everyman Cinema, and Dot Art exhibitions are ground-breaking additions. The Metquarter is not only an up-market shopping destination, it has become a hub for exciting events and enticing possibilities.

The Everyman Cinema offers a bar menu where you can enjoy drinks, hot food and snacks in the bar or have waiter service from cosy sofa, cinema seats. It is a luxurious take on the movies. Their Christmas offering is impressive. Elf, The Muppets Christmas Carol, Gremlins, and How the Grinch stole Christmas, are part of the festive attractions. They had me at ‘Elf’.
His & Hers are regular clients at Urban Calm Spa, in the Metquarter. It houses the city’s only Dermalogica Skin Bar and relaxing pedicure thrones. Urban Calm Group have been established as one of the North Wests go-to beauty destination for over 13 years, offering soothing and tranquil spaces where specialists embrace skin and beauty therapies. The massages are divine; the eyelash tints are surprisingly stress-free, and we loved the results.
There will be Dot-Art festive exhibition: ‘The Liverpool Collection’ between 22nd November and 5th January. The collection will showcase an abundance of artwork created by talented local artists. We are promised an eclectic mix of iconic Liverpool scenes, celebrating local culture. All art work will be on sale, starting at £25 upwards to £2,500. The summer exhibition was breathtakingly good and a joy to see.
One lucky member of my family will be enjoying an item from Gieves & Hawkes on Christmas Day. This Savile Row tailors has made its indelible quality mark in the Quarter. Vincentius Bespoke has just launched its second store in the Quarter. We went on-line to check out a party frock or two. I have found a stunning little black dress with a fabulous bow at Vincentius. Need look no further. Smudge is one of my favourite boutiques; there are always fashion items that are a little bit special and different from elsewhere. The list of retailers is impressive: Kids Cavern, MAC, Kurt Geiger, Sassoon, Jo Malone London and Francesca Couture are just some of the headliners.
