It’s that time of year once again. September has rolled around and the freshers are out in full force. From the Baltic Triangle to Ropewalks and beyond, Liverpool is packed with bars, clubs, restaurants and events for a fun night. So, whether you’re looking to mingle with your new flatmates or back for another year of partying with old pals, DesignMyNight has picked the very best places that should be on your bucket list this year.
Best for Instagrammable cocktails: Ex-Directory
Head to Hockenhall Alley and enter through a secret door in a clandestine phonebox to find this hidden speakeasy. You’ll be welcomed with an impressive menu of creative cocktails; from mojitos and margaritas to more adventurous concoctions like the Selfie Sling which arrives with an instant camera to snap your shot.
Best for an unforgettable night: The Freakshow Experience at CIRCO Never Ever Land
If you’re looking for something totally cool and quirky, ditch the usual student club night and head to this circus-themed bar and restaurant for a mesmerising night filled with fire-breathers, ball pits, trapeze artists and more. With international DJs spinning the soundtrack to a sizzling night, CIRCO Never Ever Land is providing the goods.
Best for a post-lecture refuel: Yard & Coop
Keeping it casual, Yard & Coop don’t cluck about when it comes to fried chicken. You’ll find everything from massive burgers to buffalo wings and craft beers to wash it all down. Better yet, you can snag lunch for only £5 on weekdays, while the first 5 people will receive their meal for free. Just try not to drool through your morning seminar.
Best for group drinks: Constellations
With an impressive roster of events; from open-air parties to soul jams and throwback raves, Constellations easily takes you from day to night. There’s a charming cafe, über cool art gallery and even a quirky garden bar for drinking alfresco. A hub for art, music, food and drink, this Baltic Triangle hangout won’t disappoint.
Best for discussing the night before: The Brunch Club
Fulfilling all your breakfast and brunch needs each and every day, The Brunch Club is the perfect place to nurse a sore head after a night out on the town. Glowing fairy lights hang from the ceiling, while a stripped-back interior and bare brick walls provide a cosy backdrop to indulge in French toast, hearty spreads and copious amounts of bloody marys.
