Did someone say cocktails?

Everyone loves a good cocktail. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy a tipple mid-week or somewhere to let your hair down at the weekend, we’ve put together a list of our favourite bars that serve up a boss cocktail, because ...it’s always 5 o’clock somewhere, right?  


You can find Santa Chupito's on the corner of the cobbled Seel Street in the Ropewalks area. Inside, the bar has a quirky yet cosy feel. They offer their own twist on classic cocktails from Passion Fruit Zombies to Bacon and Maple Old Fashioned. However, we’d definitely recommend starting off by trying their famous ‘5 Dollar Shake’... Vodka, Chambord, blueberries and ice cream all shaken up and served in a milk bottle = HEAVEN!


A new bar on the block! Neighbourhood opened their Liverpool franchise in October 2017. Based in an old Bank on Castle Street, it has an amazing interior from high ceilings and extravagant windows to multi-coloured neon lights and plush yellow booths… we must mention this is a top Insta-worthy spot! Celebrating? Neighbourhood offers ‘social sharing’ cocktails to enjoy with friends.



Sometimes, you need to get away from the crowd and find a secret spot. Berry and Rye is a hidden gem which combines whisky, blues, jazz and gin. Open seven nights a week, it’s a modern speakeasy. Just on the edge of Ropewalks, in Liverpool’s Chinatown. The ‘secret’ black door to enter can be hard to find at first, but knock and if you’re lucky, you’ll get in.



So one or two cocktails have turned into five or six? We understand, it happens to the best of us! El Bandito is open later than most in the city, tucked away under Santa Chupitos on Seel Street. It’s a cosy basement bar, open from 9pm-3am on a weeknight and until 5am on a weekend. Perfect for those of you that love staying out until the early hours! PLUS they run Happy Hour every day from 8-12pm… Winner! Their cocktails are mainly tequila or mezcal based, we would recommend trying their Blended Margarita.


Looking for an alternative spot which doesn’t serve alcohol? Head over to the Brink. They have the largest selection of soft drinks, mocktails and fresh juices in the city. Brink also host regular events such as live music, poetry, plays, performances and open mic evenings.


The party is on at Crazy Pedro’s, crazy by name and crazy by nature. Grab one of their impressive cocktails, a slice of pizza and hit the sun terrace or beer pong table for a grand night out. Tequlia is high priority in their cocktail making so grab a Spring Break Spritz or a Frozen Margarita and join the party.  

Why isn’t it the weekend already.

Eden is Red Door on Berry Street’s new rooftop terrace area and not only is it a summer vibe paradise, they do great cocktails too. Head down with your mates on a summer’s day, sit on their floral terrace and soak up all the sun in this hidden gem of a cocktail bar. 


For cocktails with a bit of a twist head over to The Alchemist on Brunswick Street for a night you won't forget. You’ll get your cocktails served in test tubes, beakers and glasses out of the ordinary and lot of dry ice. It’s like a cocktail theatre! 


Enter into the magical forest inspired bar on Duke Street for floral inspired cocktails and the all the classics. If there is a few of you then a cocktail tree is definitely a must. 


For a night of cocktails with a bit of friendly competition then Junkyard Golf Club in Liverpool One is the place to head. Tee off around one of their three themed crazy golf courses with an equally crazy cocktail in hand. Inspired by pop culture and covered in all your favourite sweets, pick up a Ribena Turner, Hotline Ting, Fairway to Heaven or a Drank U, Next. 


From the 5 Dollar Shake to a Bacon & Maple Old Fashioned, Santa Maluco does them all. The Pizzeria and cocktail bar on Castle Street is a great place to stop off for a slice or their finest stone baked pizzas and a refreshing cocktail, trust us! 


For sophisticated cocktails you can’t get much better than Fazenda at Exchange Flags. Their dedicated cocktail menu splits all your favourite tipples into sections so it’s easy to pick what you’re after. From shorts, to a long drink, a classic or a fizz, they’ll sort you out.


Turtle Bay is that good, in Liverpool we have two! Head over to the Caribbean inspired cocktail bar and restaurant to start your night off in style. Best of all between 11:30am - 7pm & from 9:30pm to close on Sunday to Thursday and 10:00pm till close on Friday and Saturday, you can get two for one cocktails! 


A Baltic Triangle favourite, Birdies is a great place to grab a cocktail and soak up all the sun on a hot summer’s day. With a tree lined garden full of bean bags and street food and an undercover hideaway full of flowers and seats - the weekend drinks are sorted! 


The Botanical Garden in the Baltic Triangle is a hidden gem of a cocktail bar, blink and you might miss it! Hidden down New Bird Street, the garden is decked out with benches, grass bleachers, a shed to seek shelter, Djs and not forgetting, lots of cocktails. If you love a gin inspired cocktail this is the place to head. 

Liverpool is full of brilliant bars, pubs and clubs. So. wherever you choose, we’re sure you’ll have a great night. Have we missed off your favourite bar? Let us know over on our Twitter @VisitLiverpool.
