19 Bars And Pubs You Must Visit In Liverpool

Share on Pinterest

Whatever you’re up to around town, there’s always time for a bevvy.

Berry & Rye

This place is one of the city’s up-and-coming drinking spots. Suave, atmospheric, and very, very cool, it’s hidden away on Berry Street. There’s no sign or noticeable entrance; just a door to knock on and, if there’s room, they’ll let you in.

Ma Egerton’s

Centrally located (right by Lime Street train station), not only is the food highly recommended (notably the pizza), but the overall experience – including the atmosphere, friendly staff, great service, and inviting nature – of this old English pub is second to none.

Some Place

Some Place

A small, unadvertised bar that deals exclusively in absinthe cocktails, which are a lot nicer than they sound. Honest.

Peter Kavanagh’s

Boasting huge character and unique decor, this is one of Liverpool’s oldest pubs. To go with your interesting surroundings, there are a selection of fine ales, including Drunken Duck.

Ye Cracke

Ye Cracke has arguably one of the nicest beer gardens the city has to offer, which is especially handy in the summer, with some top notch ales available. It was a frequent drinking hole for John Lennon, too.

The Philharmonic Pub

A classy, well-known location that’s architecturally superb both inside and out. The marble urinals in the Gents are a talking point, but the pub itself is comfy and welcoming.

The Baltic Fleet

Last surviving sailor's pub on Liverpool's dockside

Apparently there are four ghosts that wander The Baltic Fleet, but don’t let that put you off visiting this 19th Century dockside delight. Many of their beers are brewed on the premises, and offers a tasty spot of lunch to complement your drinking activities.

Ship and Mitre

The real ales the Ship and Mitre have on tap come highly recommended, even if it’s not the prettiest to look at from the outside. But upon entry there’s a friendly atmosphere and the vast selection means your visit won’t be a disappointing one.

The Cavern Pub

Quite possibly Liverpool’s most famous drinking spot, it has competitive prices and an atmospheric mixture of live music and cool memorabilia that litters its interior.

The Fly In The Loaf

Known for its friendly and efficient staff, The Fly In The Loaf is well located on Hardman Street. It’s not long had a refurb, which makes it even more welcoming.

The Grapes (Mathew Street)

This is the same pub the Beatles used to drink in before they became legends #thegrapes #liverpool

A regular for The Beatles before they took over the world, The Grapes will take you back in time with its memorabilia and 60s decor, if you’re after that sort of thing.

The Attic

With excellent craft beer and cocktails, The Attic’s located above the famous Parr Street Studios, with highlights such as an outdoor drinks terrace and weekly BBQs.

Jenny’s Bar

A hidden gem of sorts, Jenny’s is a basement, retro-vibed bar. The only problem you’ll have is finding it. (Hint: it’s on Fenwick Street.)

Kelly’s Dispensary

Situated just a short travel from the city centre on Smithdown Road, Kelly’s Dispensary has plenty of character. People go there for the live music and buzzing atmosphere the punters generate. Oh, and for the booze, don’t forget the booze.

Alma De Cuba

As interiors go, Alma De Cuba boasts a stunning one that’s suitable for all occasions: relaxing lunches, casual drinks, or an atmospheric detour on a night out.

Liverpool One Bridewell

The Bridewell’s a former prison, which is a rather unique talking point in itself and is therefore an interesting place to visit. Their ale and food is pretty good too.

The Lion Tavern

Minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, The Lion – located opposite Moorfields train station – is a place that hosts Malt Whiskey Society meet-ups and has a stunning Victorian interior.

Bar Cava

Every flavour of tequila under the sun

It may not be the most glamorous of locales, but this intimate tequila bar offers practically every flavour you can think of, at pretty reasonable prices. A great starting point for a night out.

City Wine Bar and Kitchen
