Neighbourhood Liverpool

418 user reviews 4

Inspired by the extravagant bars seen in New York and Miami, Neighbourhood's interior is ideal for any of you foodstagrammers who must take a photo of every restaurant you eat in. With an impressive brasserie and cocktail menu, the food and drink will make your trip more worthwhile than the hundreds of likes your post will receive. 

Bierkeller Liverpool

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! 

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. 

The Smugglers Cove

Settle down under the sea in this pirate's cove with decor that will have you dragging out your r's and wondering whether you need a patch over your eye. You'll feel like you found a treasure chest filled with gold when choosing from more than 150 bottles and creative cocktails to drink, which let's face it: might be better, at this cool Liverpool restaurant.

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.

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. 

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.

Mowgli Liverpool

We had to include a place you could grab a good curry. Producing high quality, refined Indian food, Mowgli is also a cool venue in Liverpool for a night in this modern restaurant. The rustic decor with wooden tables and low caged lighting is accompanied by traditional favourites and cocktails for all to enjoy.
