Noticed that glow of neon green? That'll be Some Place; one of the city's treasured hidden gems where the lighting is low and the absinthe-laced cocktails are heady. Forget your local and head out in search of this slick retreat for punchy drinks and intoxicating spirits.

Liverpool's appointment-only cocktail hideout, 81LTD requires you to text in your booking request. If you're lucky, you'll hear back with a secret code to punch in upon arrival. Once inside you'll find a chic set-up where an in-the-know crowd of friends and couples enjoy a concise drinks list.

After drinks at Ex-Directory? First, you'll need to follow their cryptic clues on Twitter, track down their ambiguous red phone box, get hold of their secret phone number and, finally, sneak your way inside their stylish, underground bar where you'll be rewarded with signature cocktails.
