Intu centres are springing up all over the country, from Intu Trafford to Intu Lakeside. Here in Staffordshire, we have Intu Potteries. It has transformed what was becoming a run-down shopping centre into a vibrant shopping hotspot, cinema and dining plaza.
Last week you may have seen my Eat The Disco post, which launched The Exchange’s new brunch menu alongside a fabulous little makers market.
This week, I headed back for the third time in a week, following a Gin Masterclass on Thursday… I really can’t get enough of the place.
I cannot promise you that I’m not writing this post fully under the influence of alcohol following a Gin Masterclass.
Back in January, The Exchange, Hanley, did a hugeeeee giveaway where they give something different away every day in January. I was lucky enough to win a Gin Masterclass for me and three other people!
When I was invited to like the page Eat The Disco on Facebook, I was instantly intrigued. There was glitter, disco balls and the mention of cocktails and I was here for it!
Eat The Disco is the brainchild of Lianne Shae and Melanie Heaney – two badass babes who just love a bit of glitter!
Ten Green Bottles was where I first tasted gin… ever. I haven’t looked back since. After staring at the menu Anya said “have a Poppy Rose, you’ll like it!” I loved it. A TGB original trademarked recipe Poppies gin paired with Fentiman’s Rose Lemonade with grapefruit and pomegranate.
Tsp. tisp. Teaspoon. Whatever you called it, everyone love it. Situated in the heart of Hanley’s Cultural Quarter, the little corner coffee shop provided a cosy little space to work, socialise, drink tea and eat cake when your office walls got too mind-numbing.
For Christmas, Mum and Dad bought Jake and me an Afternoon Tea Experience with prosecco at The Quarter, Hanley.
We decided to book it for yesterday (Saturday 10), for our two year anniversary which is on Tuesday (PANCAKE DAY!).
