City's sprinkling of café culture is worth a shot
MANY may sniff at the idea of a café culture in Hull.
But ambitious plans to turn the city centre's Paragon Square into a dining quarter could change that perception.
If the plans prove successful, it could provide a template to transform other parts of the city.
Hull with never become the next Parisian Left Bank but there is no reason why the centre cannot become a more vibrant place.

Walking through the city centre in the evening can be a lonely experience – there is just not enough going on.
Hull BID has tried to address that through a number of events but there needs to be a cultural sea change.
That is no easy task but projects like the one at Paragon Square could provide that first, vital step.
The move could also provide an economic boost for city centre businesses which have been struggling.
There has been much talk about the impact St Stephen's has had on drawing people away from the centre.
Paragon Square would provide a natural stepping stone to attract shoppers into the centre.
There will be cynics but the attempt to bring a continental flavour to Hull is worth a shot.
