Situated on the corner of Slater Street and Parr Street, Manolo is a sultry speakeasy worth visiting. Head inside this illicit joint, where you'll be able to sit in a cosy corner to enjoy a Caribbean-inspired bevvy, all while groovin' to a backdrop of fantastic live music. Oh, yes.

The Merchant

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.

@ Alcotraz Penitentiary: Liverpool on Various dates from Saturday 3rd December 2022

Alcotraz: Cell Block Three-Six is a quirky cocktail bar in Liverpool's city centre that's inspired by infamous prison stories. Pull on your jumpsuit and avoid the warden's stares as you try to smuggle in booze. Then? You'll sip a range of tasty cocktails made just for you.

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. 

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Red Dog Saloon

The Red Dog Saloon is the perfect place in Liverpool for American eats and decadent BBQ bites. We're talking burgers, messy wings and pulled pork sandwiches. And if you're up for a challenge, you can try their named 'Devastator Challenge'.
