The Brink


Established in 2011, The Brink is the UK’s first dry bar and café located in the heart of Liverpool City Centre.

The venue was set up to provide a safe and support place for those recovering from alcohol and drug addiction, as well as enabling those in recovery with an opportunity to re-enter the workforce.

It is renowned for serving an imaginative array of non-alcoholic cocktails, as well as locally sourced culinary wonders at an affordable price.

Popular amongst the recovery community and the general public alike, the Parr Street venue is often referred to as a thriving social hub, which showcases the talent of many local musicians on a regular basis – allowing aspiring artists to practise and perform in front of a live audience.

The varied events programme provided by the revolutionary social initiative consists of open mic nights, comedy, guitar lessons, film nights and much more.
