Which Liverpool Nightlife Area Has the Best Bars & Clubs for You?

One of the many things that makes Liverpool such a top nightlife destination, is that the best social spaces can all be found close to each other.

Each Liverpool nightlife area lays claim to its very own vibes, where some are retro, others are modern, and where some are chic, others are more rustic.

So, how do you know which Liverpool nightlife area you’d like to spend your time in?

Enter Signature Living.

We know this city like the back of our hands, and are ready and waiting to guide you round the very best bits of Liverpool’s famous nightlife, helping you make the most of your visit.

The Ropewalks & Seel Street

Type of Night: “Out-Out”

If you are looking for a Liverpool nightlife area where you can get dressed up to the nines, and have a great night out with the girls, then head to The Ropewalks and Seel Street.

Here you’ll find a huge selection of bars, each one providing their own take on an enjoyable nightlife experience.

With no two venues alike, you can expect everything from the smooth RnB vibes of Heebie Jeebies, to the tropical beach bar cool of Aloha.

You can travel to the depths of Mexico in Maya, where Day of the Dead crypt-style seating and potion-like cocktails are the order of the day or pay a visit to Salt Dog Slims to enjoy oompah bands and larger than life steins.

Liverpool Nightlife Area Tip: The upstairs level of Peacock is the place to be after midnight for late night tunes and a good old dance.

Being the most frequented Liverpool nightlife area, The Ropewalks has some seriously well-established venues that have been serving the residents of the city for aeons.

Looking for something a little different on your nights out in Liverpool? If so, check out Alma de Cuba.

The former church has become one of Liverpool’s most exciting nightlife venues, offering revellers the chance to enjoy the flavour of a South American carnival in the heart of the city.

The fabulous live entertainment includes a live Voodoo floor show and the infamous petal drop. So much more than a Liverpool cocktail bar, nights out in Alma de Cuba will always be unforgettable.

The Ropewalks and Seel Street also deliver a wide selection of the city’s best cocktail bars perfect for those who are “Out-Out” in Liverpool for the night.

Business Quarter & Castle Street

Type of night: Early Evening

Sometimes the best nights out start early, either straight after work or following a bite to eat with friends. For this type of evening on the town, there’s a Liverpool nightlife area that can get you started on the right foot.

By day, the smidgy little bars that line up along Castle Street are packed full of busy business people, grabbing a bite to eat or popping out for working lunches.

By night, each one takes on a life of its own, filling up with those in search of a big gin or cleverly crafted cocktail or two.

Rox is a classy joint, with barely enough room to swing a cat (if you’re into that sort of thing?), but the drinks and cosy space make for a fabulous place to spend an evening on the sauce with friends.

Come summer, the outdoor seating that spills out onto the pavement makes a wonderful place to soak up the sun and watch the world go by.

Liverpool Nightlife Area Tip: Make your way to Jenny’s Bar before the night is out to sample some seriously sensational cocktails, in an underground bar serving up old-world glamour, with a speakeasy edge.
