Meridian has a variety of locations to chill out from shopping malls, cafes, restaurants and bars.
In the ever-growing city of Meridian, there are several locations which offer a good spot to relax either by yourself or with friends. In this article, I plan on highlighting some of the best places in the city to go for a drink and something to eat. The first place I’m going to mention is the Cicuta Bar & Restaurant, an Italian restaurant located within Eastgate shopping centre. This bar and restaurant have a warm and relaxed atmosphere with friendly waiters that provide quick service. On arrival, you are greeted by their staff at the entrance before you can relax in comfy chairs or booths. There is a wide variety of drinks to choose from, including cocktails, and they have a large selection of wines on offer. It is also recommended that you try their garlic bread; it’s amazing! I can recommend going there for lunch or dinner, but be sure not to go too late because they close at 10 pm.
Another place which I would recommend is called the Hootananny. It is a traditional Scottish pub located in a side alley of Northgate street, which offers various entertainment from live music to large crowds of people every weekend. The atmosphere here gives off a rustic and relaxed vibe with dim lighting and comfortable chairs, perfect for catching up with friends over drinks or dinner. The food on offer is very tasty, but be sure to book ahead if you plan to eat there because they fill up quickly! You can also enjoy a game of pool here after dinner with your friends. A nice way to end off an evening in Meridian!
The last place I will mention is called the City Cafe, which is located right in the heart of Meridian city. Here you can enjoy a wide range of drinks, including cocktails, courtesy of their large bar located on the ground floor. It is located next to the river running through Meridian, making it an ideal place to relax with friends after work, especially during dinner time! They also have several other floors if you choose to go there. It is recommended that you book ahead, though, because it fills up quick! If you do plan on going there for breakfast or lunch, then be sure to get there early; otherwise, expect to queue for a while before you can eat!
