Things to do at the Open 2014 (Hoylake)
The town that is closest to Royal Liverpool and the host town for the tournament is Hoyake. You may or may not know that Hoylake is quite small, but its very easy to get around as everything is pretty much based around the main road. To get to Hoylake from Royal Liverpool’s clubhouse, turn left and go straight over the roundabout, the town starts here!
If you turn right at the roundabout you will find the train station, this can take you to most locations on the Wirral and it can take you over to Liverpool aswell, Trains generally run every 15 minutes. Trains normally run to West Kirby, but the practice ground for the Open is on Hoylake Municipal course, which means the players must cross the tracks to get there.
On the cresent opposite the train station is Jack Rabbit Slims, which offers a unique atmosphere in Hoylake. The bar boasts having live bands on most days which makes it one of very few places that do that. There will be bands playing from Wednesday to Sunday. Jack Rabbit Slims also offers “Italian Street food” which is available all day and night.
Vanilla lounge is a unique wine bar that caters for all tastes, you can share lunch with friends or a fine wine with a loved one, listen to soul and Motown or relax with live music and enjoy popular tribute nights Vanilla Lounge is the home of the Hoylake Hoolie – a unique cocktail which is a blend of martini, vodka, lime and a secret ingredient. For the real thing, pop in!
If a pub may be more up your street the look no further than The Ship Inn. It offers good drinks and fair prices and there’s normally live sport on as well, good to go to watch the highlights from the day and catch up on all that you missed.
The Portrait House is a former photographic studio that has been completely refurbished to provide an intimate ambience. In keeping with its history, the walls exhibit works by local artists.The cuisine is contemporary and classic, using the best local, seasonal produce wherever possible. The Portrait House is open from midday to midnight seven days a week.
Lino’s is a premium restaurante situated further down the main road on the right. It specialises itself on Italian food and focus’s on quality. Its quality and friendly atmosphere makes Lino’s a top restaurant for some Footballers from Everton and Liverpool which proves how good the place is. Book early to get a place.
Similar to West Kirby Promenade, but a lot longer. It offers unique views and its a popular place for runners walkers and cyclists to go through. It has great views looking out to the sea into Liverpools shipping lane.
