The Shankly Hotel | Huge Party Planned if Liverpool Win the League

As the season enters its penultimate chapter Liverpool look in prime position to mount one final assault, one last hurrah.

If that’s the case, we at The Shankly Hotel have decided to throw an enormous party on May 12 if Liverpool win the league; because where else would be better to celebrate such a mammoth and wonderful occasion.

Prepare for a party of epic proportions on The Garden of Eden terrace within The Shankly Hotel if Liverpool can come out on top in May.

The Party of the Year

The Shankly

Picture the scene: the sun is ablaze, the unbroken stream of beer hasn’t stopped for hours, we haven’t been home since the final whistle was blown, oh, and Liverpool are Premier League champions – sounds incredible doesn’t it. We hope to replicate scenes such as these when – sorry – if Liverpool win the league in May.

They’ve come close before, so close in fact that we counted down the best Liverpool teams never to win it, but on this occasion it feels special, incredible almost. And, what could be a more appropriate way to commemorate such an achievement than to celebrate on top of a hotel that bears the name of Liverpool’s adopted son and iconic leader.

This massive event is to include a free bar and entertainment that wouldn’t look out of place in the bowls of the Kop; so, prepare for a soundtrack of Liverpool’s most loved chants on May 12.

Come that momentous day in May, our party could perhaps be a less nervous occasion as the Reds may have been crowned champions by then, or, everyone may be on the brink of a breakdown as the final whistle is blown. So, be prepared to either lessen the pressure or simply continue the celebrations which started way back when Liverpool tore up the history books.

The Shankly Hotel

The Shankly

So, what makes The Shankly Hotel the perfect place to host such an important party?

The Shankly Hotel is the number one destination in the North West for any Liverpool fan. We pride ourselves on our electric matchday atmosphere, in addition to superb drinks deals, a unique environment that is sure to impress any Liverpool supporter and luxurious rooms that are perfect for weekends away with your mates.

Dedicated to Liverpool’s iconic leader, The Bastion Bar and Restaurant is the best place in Liverpool to watch the Reds. Located inside the spectacular Shankly Hotel, this wonderful restaurant enables diners to delve deeper into the personal and professional escapades of the ex-Liverpool boss.

To complete this picture of remarkable opulence, the party is in The Garden of Eden within The Shankly. This beautiful venue is unlike anywhere else as it boasts some of the most wondrous views of the city.

Indeed, where would be more appropriate to toast Liverpool’s success than a venue which overlooks the city that shares their name.

Shed a tear on top of The Shankly as there will be no more worlds to concur when Liverpool win the league.

We hope that Liverpool can be crowned champions this summer so we can throw our epic party on May 12. We hope to have more information about the event soon, so keep an eye on our Facebook and be ready to celebrate come May.

Celebrate National Pie Week at The Shankly Hotel

There aren’t many sports that have their own savoury staple. Perhaps it’s no surprise that the oldest, most celebrated sport in the country has adopted one of the world’s oldest snacks as its emblematic meal: the humble pie epitomises a world immersed by oversea owners and social media.

So, with National Pie Week on the horizon, we’ve decided to take a closer look at why, when you’re at the match, you always choose that meat and potato treat.

A Match Made in Pastry Heaven

The humble pie has popped up on numerous occasions at some of the most important matches. From 20 stone men to the Sunderland forward who, when a pie was thrown at him from the stands picked it up and devoured it, the pie is a Saturday staple.

So eminent is the connection that in 2008 a man vowed to tour the UK in search of the best savoury snack. He ate a mammoth 92 pies and even penned a book about his experiences named, wait for it, “92 Pies.”

It seems somewhat proper to rate the pies and so, that’s where the team at Pierate come to the fore. Because of them, we now know that Morecambe is the home of the nation’s most loved pie.

Everton’s attempt at a pie, however, was described as: “Goodison, but not good enough.”

But, to our horror and distaste, Liverpool are nowhere to be seen. The cheek of it.

Hombaked Anfield

National Pie week

Founded in 2010, Homebaked is a co-operative bakery situated in the shadow of Liverpool’s stadium. Some even say that the current eatery that provides supporters with their pre-match pie was inspired by the kindness of Shankly himself.

This delicious bakery has provided the community and countless supporters from across the world with pies and snacks for almost a century, and, is the ideal place to celebrate National Pie Week.

Since 2010, the cues at Homebaked have snaked out the door and around the street as it has become traditional to purchase a pie to either keep your hands warm or, more importantly, support the local community.

Many believe that Homebaked was inspired by Liverpool’s iconic leader and that could be why their trademark pie is aptly named: “The Shankly Pie” made with steak, bacon, mushroom and onion.

Today, Homebaked use their massive matchday profits to help educate and train their bakers. They also hold classes and communal courses and any surplus food is donated to food banks and homeless shelters.

So, why not pop in and support them this National Pie Week.

National Pie Week 2019

national pie week

So, to celebrate National Pie Week, The Bastion Bar and Restaurant at The Shankly Hotelwhich has recently been nominated for Hotel of the Year at the LEP Liverpool Tourism Awards – has created a delicious pie to mark the event.

From chicken and onion to Shankly’s favourite steak and kidney, The Bastion Bar and Restaurant is the place to be this March.

Our pies are made entirely from scratch and baked fresh each day to ensure maximum flavour and maximum enjoyment.

Indeed, why not make the most of National Pie Week and book a stay at the hotel. The Shankly is ideal for romantic stays or weekends away – and what could be more romantic than a pie dinner for two.

Our friendly and helpful team can’t wait to hear from you. Contact us on 0151 236 0166 or email reservations@shanklyhotel.com
