Located in Liverpool’s vibrant city centre, this cocktail bar is housed in a beautiful old church that oozes heritage and offers a truly unique night out! Alma de Cuba is the ideal venue for those looking for a night with a twist- the church is very large, old and full of character, which oddly compliments the modern features of the bar and restaurant.

Alma de Cuba

Alma de Cuba offers an extensive cocktail menu(prices varying between £7 and £9.50) which begins with ‘The Alma Ten Commandments’, setting a fantastic tone to the evening. This bar provides one of the best atmospheres in the city with a fusion of Cuba, Hispanic and Latin American influences, completed by Liverpudlian spirit.

Alma De Cuba runs plenty of events so it’s worth checking out their site for upcoming nights.

Hannah’s Bar

Hannah’s Bar is a great little liverpudlian gem that should not missed! A fantastic New York themed bar, Hannah’s has plenty to offer including an ‘extraordinary glass roof terrace’ where you can enjoy a beautiful view of St Luke’s, famously known as the ‘bombed out church’.

This bar also offers a nice range of cocktails to try, live entertainment, food, and most importantly, a vibrant and friendly atmosphere.


Located on Albert Dock in the Grade I listed Britannia Pavilion, PanAm offers a great bar and restaurant. With a glass wall that affords stunning views of the dock and waterfront, PanAm is a popular haunt for locals and visitors alike. The atmosphere here is always buzzing with energy and warmth, complementing the stylish décor and spacious venue and making it a prime destination for a cocktail or two.

The Philharmonic Dining rooms

A real city gem, The Philharmonic Dining Rooms oozes history and heritage housed in one of the most beautiful buildings in Liverpool. This grade II listed building offers stunning wooden décor and ‘Art Nouveau’ detailing that makes guests feel like they have stepped back in time.

The atmosphere is local, friendly and wholesome, making ‘The Phil’ a great watering hole for those looking for a uniquely traditional setting to enjoy a beverage.

Mojo Liverpool

Cocktails, music and delicious food, Mojo Bar is the bar to checkout in Liverpool. With the tagline, ‘Music for the people’, you know that an evening at Mojo is going to offer a fantastic night of Rock and Roll, dancing and plenty of merriment.
