A hidden gem. The Fitzgerald is an atmospheric drinking den, with splendid décor and a vintage vibe.

Just like the secret drinking spots of the prohibition era, The Fitzgerald has an air of mystery with its back street entrance and dark and moody interior. It channels the classic speakeasy effortlessly, with 1920s glassware and vintage décor and is renowned for its delicious cocktails and lively playlist.

Every Thursday evening the venue comes alive, as local musicians play live jazz and blues until the early hours, and at the weekend DJs extended this with a mix of soul, disco and funk. Entry is free and private tables and areas can be booked in advance for groups, or for a private event or party with a unique vintage twist, the entire bar can also be hired for groups of up to 150 people.

The Fitzgerald - Cocktail Bar Review

Nestled away on a quiet side street off Stevenson’s Square in the Northern Quarter (or argumentatively, and more specifically, the FaQua) you will find an unmarked doorway. Venturing through that doorway, and up the stairs will lead you into...

Had lovely cocktails and enjoyed our date night! Thanks! We nearly missed our table but the waitress soon sorted another table for us and gave us our first round on the house. Great little lounge bar. Visited The Fitzgerald on 2015-10-31

I live 30 minutes away in Warrington and my husband made the journey to the bar to take decorations for the table, as it was my friends 30th birthday. We were told they would decorate the table for our arrival, but wen we arrived I saw the decorations next to the till unopened. I was very disappointed: what a waste of time. It's billed as a 'speakeasy' bar but its really not. The furnishings etc are not that impressive, and we left early and went to The Apotheca Bar round the corner, which was much more impressive. Gutted.

Great atmosphere and music. Staff were great and the cocktails were divine as well , some real gems on the card. Will absolutely be going again and spreading the word, best thing the crowd was right and not full of young party goers.
