Be At One Liverpool

442 user reviews 4

Who doesn't love Be At One? Daily happy hours, a buzzy atmosphere, impressive mixologists and a soundtrack filled with bangers are all up for grabs at this party bar. Hit them up at the weekend for a night of dancing, courtesy of their resident DJs, or check out their cocktail masterclasses for a fun birthday idea.

The Merchant

21 user reviews 5

Is this the coolest place to eat and drink in the Ropewalks? With craft booze, comfort food classics and a weekly line up of DJs on offer, we would argue so. Add in The Merchant's gorgeous interiors - neon signs, exposed brick walls, overhanging foliage and a beer garden - and this gem's a keeper.  

Pho Liverpool

A guaranteed crowd-pleaser, Pho is a great place to eat in the Ropewalks with friends. As well as offering vegan and gluten-free alternatives to their menu of noodle soups, rice bowls and curries, the Vietnamese restaurant also whips up a tasty weekday two-course lunch deal for only £10.95. 

Berry and Rye

Hidden behind an unassuming black door you'll find Berry and Rye, a theatrical speakeasy bar. Hanging lights and rustic flooring give the place a slinky atmosphere, whilst a large drinks menu of gin and whisky concoctions are disguised within old books and bibles. In other words, welcome to your new date night spot.

Grove Beer Tap & Grill is a triple threat - delivering on the looks, food and drinks front. Grab a pint from the regularly rotating assortment of craft brews before taking a seat in the gorgeous venue, or head out to the terrace and catch some rare rays. Hungry? Eats comes in the form of comfort classics -think burgers, fish and chips and wings.

Take a culinary trip through Spain with an evening at Pilgrim. Created by the winners of the Million Pound Menu, the restaurant's dishes take inspiration from numerous rural villages and towns across Spain. Tuck into a regularly-changing menu of authentic bites, including Galician fillet steak with coal-roasted potatoes and blood orange cake with cinnamon sugar.

Tucked away in Wolstenholme Square, in one of the city's oldest warehouses, Clockworks is brimming with character. The all-day restaurant near Seel Street cooks up a mouthwatering menu of bites, including braised rabbit and chorizo croquette, beef shin pie and chocolate orange cheesecake. They also have a cracking cocktail menu for those just looking for an evening tipple.

Singing waiters, American-style nosh and fabulous live performances are all waiting for you at Mulholland. Housed inside an award-winning hotel, the eatery has music running through its veins, from its menu - think Justin Bieber-inspired shredded chicken - to its weekend Dirty Dancing bottomless brunch.

A popular student hangout, Heebie Jeebies is your one-stop-shop for drinking and dancing. During the day the Ropewalks bar is a prime place for a sip in the sunshine, with a stunning courtyard and adorable cocktails served in teapots. However, once the sun goes down, twinkly fairy lights sets the mood for a raucous night of shaking and shimmying across their three floors. 

It might be named The Brunch Club but it's the cocktails that got our attention - although you can't knock them on the food-front either. Fill your boots on braised beef brisket hash, buffalo chicken burgers and Thai sesame sticky beef salads, before washing it down with Rye Tais, apricot-infused Cuban Rum Runners and other house concoctions. 

Santa Chupitos is not for the faint-hearted. Mixing up some of the wackiest cocktails in the city, the innovative bar has three menus of signature, seasonal and unusual drinks up for grabs. Passionfruit zombies and 5 Dollar Shakes are joined by duck and plum old fashioneds, bakewell tartinis and watermelon margaritas for the more inquisitive sippers amongst you.

Modo Liverpool

78 user reviews 4

Ask anyone what their favourite bar in the Ropewalks is and the chances are they'll say Modo. The landmark party haunt is guaranteed to be bustling every weekend with daytime drinkers and nighttime dancers - although, with three unique floors and an outdoor space to choose from, we're sure you'll manage to find a spot.

This small but mighty restaurant has got all your eating and drinking needs covered. Head over to the charming spot where you'll find long communal tables, countertop seating and a kitchen popping out Middle Eastern and Mediterranean plates. When you're done, venture downstairs to the basement bar for an after-dinner drink.
