Liverpool Nightlife

Liverpool has a well-deserved reputation as a party city. From traditional pubs to trendy bars and throbbing nightclubs, the city has something for everyone. The greatest variety of nightlife is found along Seel Street, while old boozers can be sampled on Hardman Street. The Liverpool LGBT scene centres on Stanley Street with the revamped warehouses of the Baltic Triangle host to arty events and festivals.

Bars in Liverpool

Berry & Rye

This Prohibition-style cocktail bar takes the era's inclination for secrecy to extremes. You'd never guess that behind a rather humdrum door – you may even have to knock – and thick velvet curtain lies a portal back to 1930s Chicago. Think candles in wine bottles and gin and whiskey cocktails that slip down all too easily to the jazz and blues soundtrack. No bookings – just turn up.

Address: , 48 Berry Street, Liverpool, L1 4JQ
Telephone: +44 151 345 7271.

The Magnet

Situated in the Cultural Quarter, atmospheric and intimate Magnet has an illustrious musical history and was once graced by Freddie Mercury and Brian May. Today, it attracts a discerning crowd and you can snuggle up with a drink in cosy booths whilst listening to jazz, soul, funk, rare groove and Latin beats or take in comedy and open mic nights.

Housed within one of the city's few remaining art deco buildings, it is thought that a pub has existed on the site for at least 120 years. The Ship stocks one of the region's biggest range of beers so visitors can sample everything from cask ales and German pilsners to draught beers from the Czech Republic
