Liverpool nightlife: The lowdown on where to go

Liverpool has a vibrant nightlife with bars and clubs to suit a variety of tastes. Here are some of the places to visit in the city…


Alma de Cuba in Seel Street serves a great selection of cocktails and has a lovely ambience. The bar is located in a converted former Catholic Church, creating an atmospheric gothic feel.

The theme of the bar is a mixture of Cuban, Hispanic and Latin American.

On Friday and Saturday nights there are Carnival Shows featuring Latin American dancers. There are also petal showers at 11pm.

If you would rather shake your tail to some current dance music, pop tunes and hip hop beats, then head to the Revolution Bar on the Albert Dock, which has a mean Rasberry Mohito on its menu. Also located on the Albert Dock is the Blue Bar, a nice quiet cocktail spot.

For two-for-one cocktail deals, funky booths and cosy seating head to Modo Bar in Concert Square.


If you like seventies music, head to Flares in Mathew Street. Here you will find afro wigs, big shiny sunglasses and lots of multi-colured lights.

Cheesy tunes and a good dance floor can be found at Pop World on Wood Street. There are plenty of other similar-type bars along Wood Street and in nearby Concert Square.

Great fun can always be had at the Walkabout in Concert Square, an Australian-themed bar.


There are numerous venues that offer live music in Liverpool. These include: Barfly in Seel Street, the Cavern Club in Mathew Street, Zanzibar in Seel Street and the Picket in Jordan Street.


Bar Ca Va in Wood Street has a huge selection of shots with everything from tequila and sambuca to the more bizarre flavours including baked bean!
