Upstairs at the Bluecoat is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a freshly prepared meal in a creative setting, offering wonderful city views as well as the very best in locally sourced produce.

With contemporary local art adorning the walls and thoughtfully selected music, Upstairs is the perfect place to entertain friends or perhaps enjoy a romantic meal for two in the very heart of cultural Liverpool.

As only the finest and freshest of ingredients are used, the food changes with the seasons, so check in regularly to see what's on the menu.

The Upstairs bistro may be accessed through the front entrance, turn left immediately, pass the Tickets and Information desk and continue towards the glass doors. The lift is situated behind the doors to the left hand side and the bistro is located on the second floor. Alternatively you may access the bistro directly from the courtyard through the historic staircase side entrance by following the chalkboard sign.
