As of Monday 2 April (5.45 pm) our venue for monthly meetings will be Dragon, 48 Berry Street, in Chinatown, Liverpool,
L1 4JQ. (Tel: 0151-709 8879)

The venue is now a cafe-bistro bar, serving home-made meals and drinks from 5.30-11 pm Mondays to Thursday, and noon – 2 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Sunday opening is 3-11 pm. Dragon runs a number of themed nights during the week (including acoustic and stand-up comic evenings), of which that for Monday early evenings is now…. Monday Women.

Locating Dragon is easy. It’s close-by Liverpool’s famous Chinese Arch and The Blackie, and not far in the other direction from the ‘bombed out church’ (St Luke’s), but on the opposite, Bold Street side. Almost next door to Dragon is an unremarked but amusing landmark – a life-sized model of a man on a ladder, apparently painting the front of his shop at first-floor height.

On foot, by car, or public transport?
Only a couple of minutes’ walk from Leece Street and Renshaw Street, there are many bus routes which can be taken in and out of town, and the central train services are very accessible. There is also car parking nearby, in the Knight Street facility just behind the China Palace Restaurant opposite Dragon.
Dragon‘s owner, Mary, and her colleagues are developing a menu which meets various requirements. Currently there is a somewhat focused choice of food, but the menu always includes a veggie option and a soup.
Mary is keen to learn how her Monday Women friends and customers would like the Monday menu to be developed!
All women welcome

that this should be a group to which all women are welcome just as themselves, and there is therefore no joining fee, registration or any other formal arrangement. People can simply attend the informal meetings, or be a ‘member’ of the Monday Women email group, or both, with involvement just as often or as infrequently as they choose.
Pass the word
The only ‘rule’ is that people come expecting to find others who are also friendly and welcoming, and who have a huge range of interests, ideas and experiences to share. Please pass on the invitation to become a Monday Woman….
Or, if you live somewhere other than Merseyside, why not start your own group? There’s room for us all!
