Red Door Liverpool

Red Door is less of a quirky date bar in Liverpool and more a destination for its cool mixed drinks and gorgeous terrace. Come to this chilled out hangout and treat your date to a number of bubbling cocktails, bespoke spirits and tasty sharers should you want to re-enact Lady and the Tramp… but with spirits.

What's a quirky Liverpool date without a quirky bar to match? The Smugglers Cove is one of the biggest watering holes in the city and hiding within is a pirate's booty worth of vintage trinkets, rich velvets and broody candelabras. While you've stopped off to admire the pirate vibes, you might as well grab a rum-laced drink and a bite to eat.

Not just a cracking place to drinks cocktails in Liverpool, The Oracle is also promising a wacky kind of entertainment. Get cosy in the speakeasy-style hideaway and prepare for magic tricks, sleight of hand and quirky magicians.

Looking for things to do outside of the city? Shake things up with a trip to one of these retro cinemas. Popping up across the UK, they're bringing you old-school snacks, blockbuster movies and sunset views for the ultimate day out for couples.

Prim and proper restaurants and bars are good occasionally, but everyone, deep down, loves a dive bar. Cue Motel Bar, where neon signs, cheap drinks and good times come thick and fast for those of you looking for an alternative date in Liverpool.

One of the most quirky bars in Liverpool also happens to be one of the hardest to find. First you have to discover their phone number to book a table, then be ultra-quick to get one in the first place. Only after this will you get the top-secret location – and once inside, it's all worth it with a cocktail menu filled with some of the most creative concoctions in the North.
