Liverpool’s bar scene goes from strength to strength, from year to year. Whether you prefer a finely-made cocktail, an imported craft beer or simply a nice pint of stout, there’s something in the city for you.
The Ship & Mitre is one of the finest pubs in Liverpool city centre, a mere hop, skip and a jump from Lime Street Station and with an enviable supply of cask beers and bottles. They host regular beer festivals and beer festival outings too, and you can even take some of their wares home from their very own Ship in a Bottle store, five minutes around the corner. Rivalling that is The Fly in the Loaf on Hardman Street, which prides itself on excellent service and its admirable beer selection, from real ales to craft beer and beyond. Or why not take a trip to The Grapes on Roscoe Street? Great ale, live jazz and almost certainly a lively conversation about anything from football to Descartes with a complete stranger. Go on, take a chance.
If it’s cocktails you’re after, Santa Chupitos should be your main destination. It’ll be busy, mark our words, but you’ll soon see why. For a whisky-fuelled good time, there’s also Berry & Rye, an excellent prohibition-themed addition to the city’s nightlife with an excellent selection.
