We can’t believe that we are already into the third month of 2018! Here at Pink Media we have had a very busy and exciting start to the year, and we have been lucky enough to experience a trip around the world courtesy of our clients’ latest endeavours – all from the comfort of our Baltic Triangle office, of course.
In early January, our journey started at Silk Rd, an eatery offering a taste of dishes from the Pacific to the Med. The restaurant launched its second site in the city’s impressive Beetham Plaza and has already been nominated in two categories in this year’s LCR Tourism Awards.
Moving along the Mediterranean coastline, Italian eatery Trattoria 51 has had a busy start to 2018 by celebrating its Valentine’s ‘week of love’, while Andrew Manion, Director of Aigburth based AJM Hair took Milan Fashion Week by storm at his first international catwalk show. Sicilian and Jordanian influence took to Castle Street when the street’s newest dining destination, Heritage, opened its doors in February.
Moving along the map to China, Liverpool has welcomed the Terracotta Warriors exhibition, and to commemorate their arrival, The Brink has created a delicious themed mocktail – we highly recommend giving it a try! With all things ‘healthy’ in mind, Suites Hotel and Spa started off 2018 with a health kick by announcing its partnership with Slimming World, adding its already rich health and fitness offering which includes a gym, swimming pool and stream room.
We’ve continued to enjoy all things Asian as Lark Lane’s gem Chilli Banana reintroduced its delicious Street Food Menu, offering a true taste of the best of Thailand, while Directors of Carringtons Catering Helen and Darren Wynn recently arrived back from their very own trip to Singapore and Thailand and are already incorporating the exotic flavours into their dishes. In keeping with the culinary theme, we’ve been so excited to work with Bond Events Group to announce the launch of Liverpool’s very first Chilli Carnival taking place this May – feeling hot, hot, hot!
Back on home shores, the historic Leasowe Castle unveiled its newly refurbished Star Chamber, with its focus remaining on the ceiling centrepiece which was lovingly restored and returned from London’s House of Commons in 1806. The site has celebrated its impressive renewal with the introduction of an exclusive Afternoon Tea experience with NovelTea.
More locally, Delifonseca Dockside has announced its exciting extension plans, which promise an even bigger and better foodie haven on our doorstep very soon. There’s more good news for our city as the King of Castle Street and Director of DV8 Designs, Lee Birchall, has provided the cosmopolitan postcode with a duo of new social spots, Rox and Sanctuary Tap, adding to his ever growing portfolio.
Heading over the water to the Wirral, we saw Maxweb start its year off with a collaboration with Ghost Software Ltd to create a bespoke app that is set to revolutionise the property sector, while Bebington Glazing has successfully secured various city centre projects at notable venues including Goodman Wells.
Here at Pink Media we’re already looking forward to the rest of the year – who knows where it will take us? Keep an eye on our blog to find out…
