Plans Announced For an Amazing Wedding Venue in Alma de Cuba

Alma de Cuba has recently unveiled exciting new plans to install a beautiful new floor level inside the restaurant and bar to give lucky brides and grooms a unique backdrop on their special day. This amazing wedding setting in Alma de Cuba is sure to be one of the best venues to walk down the aisle in Liverpool.

A former church, Alma de Cuba is one of the city’s most popular and famous social hubs, having already won multiple awards for its unique carnival atmosphere and Cuban inspired events.

Wedding Venue in Alma de Cuba

A Unique Space

The new wedding events space is set to be built above the existing mezzanine floor currently used by diners and will make use of one of Alma de Cuba’s main features, the alter. This unique facet was expertly restored when the building was renovated and will now be the main feature of the new magical wedding venue.

The first CGI images show how the new wedding floor could look with the stunning Alma de Cuba altar at the centre and glass walls enclosed around the aisle to create a private event space that is still part of the party below.

At Signature Living, its fair to say we’ve mastered the art of hosting weddings that are cherished forever.

The Shankly Hotel are proud to house the Garden of Eden that has become one of the most popular places to get married in the city and of course the stunning White Star Grand Hall over in 30 James Street.

We can’t wait to welcome Alma into the Signature family.

Returning to its Roots

Located on Seel Street, this vibrant bar was once Liverpool’s oldest Catholic Church and is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building.

Built in 1788 it served as a Catholic building over a period of 188 years, after it was taken over by the Polish community and renamed Our Lady of Czestochowa.

It was then converted by architects and sympathetically restored to retain many of the original features from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries including the upstairs galleries, the king post roof, the beautiful altar and the stained glass windows.

We’re planning on taking the sentimental church back to its roots by adding on a unique wedding venue to complement the current layout.

It’s a really exciting new step for the restaurant and will give it a whole new dimension, the future is looking very bright for Alma de Cuba.

In the meantime, we’d love to see you at Alma de Cuba for our array of vivid and vibrant events, ranging from our Samba Afternoon Tea to Thursday Rumba Night.

To enquire about booking a table at Alma de Cuba or for more information, you can contact our friendly team on  0151 709 1567.

Horse Racing Tips, Tricks and Superstitions in time for Grand National

When it comes to picking a winning horse at the races there’s a fine art to it. Most of us choose horses based on the name or the colour of the jockey’s silks, often there’s a lack of actual research or science behind our final decision and whenever we’ve managed to pick a winner it’s from sheer dumb luck. This year prepare yourselves and see if you two can perfect the art of “handicapping” to pick yourself a winner during Grand National weekend in Liverpool.

Art not Science

The art of picking a winning horse is called “handicapping”, using all the information at your disposal to select a horse more likely to win the race. We’ve simplified some of the basics for you below by giving you some questions to ask yourself before making a choice;

  • Where has the horse ran before and at what distance?

If the horse has performed well on a similar course in recent races this is a positive.

  • What condition was the track surface of the race previously run and is it the same as the track on the day of the race you are attending?

If not the horse may not perform the same for better or worse.

  • Has the horse travelled to race?

If so there is a likely hood that those involved in the shipping will be pushing the horse harder to recoup any travel expenses.

  • Has your horse had a holiday?

The ideal time for a break between races is between 30-45days. Any longer and the horse may need at least one run to get back in the game.

  • How many races has your chosen horse started in?

A good average of starts for a horse is around 13, an over raced horse may have experience but could do with a well-deserved holiday. Try and aim for lightly raced horses and watch out for the first time or new runners. These are a gamble as they could be raring to go but are also inexperienced.

Odds and Statistics

Calculating the odds of an intended bet can be quite confusing for those with little or no experience in betting and gambling.

A good thing to know is that the majority of winners are actually less than 20-1 on the morning line. Meaning the experienced odds maker has predicted the end of the day odds which are influenced by public betting throughout the day.

Check for recently beaten favourites as these are horses that can turn around their performance in later races. At the same time keep an eye out for horses that are always overbet and favoured and avoid them as they are unlikely to hold any value.

If the odds from your horses last few races were between 2-1 and 6-1 it shows money was taken from those races and the horse was expected to perform better. These horses are anticipated likely winners in their next races.

Lastly, high odds winners tend to repeat winning performances so pay attention to those that have come in winning at high prices.

Myths and Old Wives Tales

Grand National weekend Liverpool

There are a few tricks that longtime gamblers will always employ when taking their money to the bookmaker. We thought we’d list the top 10 superstitions and see if they help or hinder yours during Grand National weekend in Liverpool.

  1. Bet on 10 stone Jockeys and 10-year-Old horses
  2. Never bet on fillies against colts
  3. Pick a horse wearing your lucky number or colour
  4. Always pick the younger horse in a race full of old timers
  5. Do not bet last minute
  6. Never let another person place your bet
  7. Grey horses for grey days
  8. Bet on horses with Gold or Win in their names
  9. Put your race ticket in the same pocket as your cash, money attracts money
  10. Use the same pocket for your race tickets until you lose then change pockets.

A Sure Thing

If you’d like to learn more about how to pick a winner and what factors determine the odds, make a visit to the Grand National Premier at St George’s Hall on 5th April.

The organisers have enlisted the advice of a panel of racing experts to help you mark your card for the races. They will be talking about form, luck and helping any race goers pick between the losers and hopefully help pick a big winner for a lucky few on the day.

Also, proceeds from the event are donated to Stamp out Suicide.

What’s the plan?

On Friday 11th February starting at 6:00pm, you can join over 200 others at The Shankly Hotel’s fabulous Garden of Eden for a sit-down meal.

With a minimum of four in your group, let your glasses clink together as you toast to the night with a welcome glass of Prosecco. Before your meal, you can take in the striking views of the city from this stylish rooftop venue.

The Shankly Hotel Named One of the World’s Best Football Themed Hotels

The Shankly Hotel was first and foremost created as a family friendly hotel. The values and morals passed down by of the greatest player/managers in footballing history are at the heart of all that we do.

Of course, it goes without saying that the Bill Shankly theme carried a lot more than amazing family values. The prestigious footballing career of Bill Shankly is portrayed for all to see throughout The Shankly Hotel.

Launch of the Shankly Tours

Bill Shankly was a Scottish man “proud to be called a scouser” and it was this sentiment that inspired us to introduce The Shankly Tours.

The Shankly Hotel tailored a fun selection of trips across Liverpool. The tours include sights and experiences that celebrate the connection Bill Shankly had with the city, it people and both football clubs.

There are football specific tours, match day tours and a combination Shankly and Fab Four Beatles tour. The city excursions have proven to be hugely popular and have made a fabulous addition to Liverpool’s tourist attractions.
