Bierkeller Liverpool

195 user reviews 4

Bavaria is a lot closer than you think with when you arrive at Bierkeller. This quirky restaurant in Liverpool does beer the German way, served in steins and ice cold to your table. Enjoy live entertainment and the authentic Bavarian decor for a party suitable for any occasion! 

Alma De Cuba

1 user review 4

We couldn't have a quirky restaurants list and not include Alma de Cuba, which invites guests to eat in a conversion of St. Peter's Catholic Church. With options to accommodate a party large or small, the restaurant sticks with Hispanic and Cuban cuisine delivering dishes like jerk chicken and baby back ribs. 

Red Dog Saloon

1 user review 5

Modelled as an American smokehouse, The Red Dog Saloon fully commits to the look with as much wood panelling as possible and taxidermy. The saloon brings an old-fashioned American backyard barbecue to Liverpool with pulled pork, ribs, mac and cheese and meat that sits smoking for 18 hours. 

Down the Hatch is one of Liverpool's weird and wonderful restaurants dedicated to crafting meat-free goodness for vegans, vegetarians, and food lovers. The modern aesthetic of industrial decor and exposed wood will be a feast for your eyes while you chow down on some vegan mac and cheese or a jack fruit sundae.

A fine dining restaurant dedicated to menus like The Chippie, the Orient Express and a Mad Hatter's Tea Party? It doesn't get much quirkier than Six By Nico. Head to their Merseyside outpost for cocktails, beers, a lineup of 6 gorgeous dishes and the option to add paired wines.
