Central Perk

Groupon from Central Perk Liverpool

Bringing a slice of New York to Liverpool, Central Perk pays homage to legendary US sitcom Friend with two locations, Liverpool & Chester. Friends fans can take a seat amongst the inspired surroundings and sip on any of the coffees from the menu, all while nibbling on a piece of cake (£3).
A replica of the famous hangout from Friends, Central Perk aims to replicate the style, layout, and menu at locations in Liverpool and Chester. Much like the show, there are open mic shows and film nights, and the decor, from the chairs to the tables, are also instantly recognisable, except this time without Chandler and Phoebe lounging in them. Coffees include the NY Classico, made with cinnamon syrup, and the Ms Liberty Blend with caramel syrup, espresso, and chocolate shavings

Ed's Easy Diner

Ed’s is a much loved retro-American diner that successfully captures the spirit of the classic US originals, iconic symbols of an unforgettable period in the history of that country. It was a time characterised by a feel-good, optimistic mood that influenced the music, the design and the culture of a unique era. Ed’s brings that 50’s story to life, at the same time delivering a quality eating experience at great value prices. 

Customers can relax at a booth or table and enjoy the great Ed’s service, or sit on a stool at the counter equipped with genuine restored ‘Dime-Selector’ juke boxes where they can select their favourite hits from the 1950’s. And, as at all great American diners, watch the food being prepared in the open kitchen right in front of them.

We have tried to select restaurants in London that might appeal to the teenagers amongst us and if you know of any cool places to eat, then please send us the details. We also want to hear from others around the country.

Planet Hollywood in London

Planet Hollywood, the world’s one and only dining experience inspired by the glamour of Hollywood, was launched in New York on 22nd October 1991. This innovative restaurant chain was launched with the backing of Hollywood megastars Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Demi Moore. 

Planet Hollywood London enjoyed a 16 year stint based in the Trocadero centre in London's buzzing Piccadilly circus. However all good things must come to an end and at the beginning of 2009, it was decided that it was time to move on, it was time for Planet Hollywood London to evolve! So following in the footsteps of the Planet Hollywood resort and casino in Las Vegas, the logo was changed and Planet Hollywood moved into its new home on the Haymarket (only a two min walk from the Trocadero centre).
Planet Hollywood, now boasts a large cocktail bar, along with many other themed areas, such as the Bond room, the British room and our trendy Cabana room. There are still lots of favourite pieces of memorabilia, among them Ursula Andress bikini from the iconic film, Dr No, R2D2 from the classic Star Wars films and much much more. Whether dining with friends, family, colleagues or clients, Planet Hollywood is an ideal venue for large or small groups, with parties easily accommodated, for either lunch or dinner.

Bill Wyman's Sticky Fingers Restaurant

Born in 1989 to legendary Rolling Stones rocker, Bill Wyman. Sticky Fingers Café was aptly named in tune to the infamous album released by the band and was the concept of Bill Wyman’s idea of what kind of restaurant he enjoyed and London should have some it too. This haven of good times, great food, and original Stones memorabilia continues to provide an enviable environment for eating, drinking, and having fun. Bill Wyman’s Sticky Fingers remains one of London’s favoured restaurants serving award winning burgers, great tender steaks, and the best ribs in London . The service is always friendly and welcoming testifying that Sticky Fingers is even stronger today than the trend it started many years ago.

Hard Rock Cafe London


Standing on Old Park Lane since June 14th 1971, this is the one that started it all. The brainchild of Isaac Tigrett and Peter Morton, the cafe attracted customers from day one with first-rate, but moderately priced, casual American fare (available no-where else in London or the UK at the time), warm service and ubiquitous Rock 'n' Roll music and sensibility - Hard Rock Cafe London became an instant classic.
