Liverpool’s nightlife is one of the best in the UK. Whether you’re into house music, heavy rock, eighties classics, techno, RnB, indie or pop music there’s always a venue where you can dance the night away. There’s a large choice of cocktail bars such as the Hawaiian-themed Aloha or the hidden prohibition bar Berry and Rye. We have Salt Dog Slims with hot dogs and steins on the menu, and student favourites like Heebie Jeebies and The Krazyhouse. Concert Square has some of the city’s biggest bars and clubs with well-known names such as Walkabout and Revolution.
If you prefer a nice cosy pub then Liverpool has a great selection of traditional English pubs for you to visit. In the summer there are some great beer gardens where you can enjoy a refreshing cider in the sunshine and in the winter you can be nice and warm in front of an open fire. We have the Beatle’s favourite pubs like Ye Cracke and The Grapes, the grand Philharmonic with the magnificent dining room and The Baltic Fleet which has been serving beer for around 400 years. New microbreweries are appearing all around Merseyside and their craft beers can be sampled in many pubs around the city.
This recently developed neighbourhood has become the home of creativity in the city and has recently been voted as one of the ‘hippest areas in the UK’. The old factories and shipping warehouses of the 1800’s have been changed into some of the best bars, clubs, and restaurants in the city whilst keeping their old, raw charm. Just a short walk from the city centre you will find VW campervan food trucks, vintage clothing markets, art fairs, live music, pop-up street food stalls and summer gin gardens.
The theatres in Liverpool provide the city with a great choice of entertainment. The Empire Theatre is the biggest with space for over 2300 people. It stages plays, musicals, ballets, comedy acts, and pantomimes. Over the years it has hosted some of the most successful West End productions ever including Rent, Wicked, Cats, Grease and Ghost. The renowned Everyman and Playhouse theatres show ground-breaking shows and plays and are responsible for starting the careers of Bill Nighy, Julie Walters and Pete Postlethwaite. If comedy shows are more your thing we have a great collection of comedy clubs around the city to get you laughing.
