Liverpool Nightlife

Liverpool is a fantastic city for dancing, drinking, and discovery. Why not consider a break there this year and take advantage of their legendary nightlife?
Liverpool is rightly renowned for its killer nightlife, and any short break here is bound to involve a drink or two. Whether you’re on a stag do or a high-culture break, this city—which Trip Advisor users voted the best place for nightlife in the UK in 2011—has something to offer for everyone. 
Stag Square. Located near the Lime Street station, it’s packed with bars, clubs, pubs and revellers. It is also popular with students and you’re sure to find many good drinks deals. From here, you can head to Matthew Street where you can join the hen nights in fancy dress queuing up outside Flares and Boogie Nights.and hen nights
If you’re looking for the most popular, buzzing bars, start your night in Liverpool with a visit to the famous Concert 
Hardman Street
If that doesn’t appeal, Hardman Street has a completely different atmosphere catering to a more bohemian crowd. Here, you’ll find art galleries rubbing shoulders with independent bars and a more relaxed air. Check out Bumper: its stylish 70s sofas are a great place to pause after dancing to their live blues bands. The club is open until 4am on Sundays, so makes the perfect destination for ending the weekend on a high note. You should also make sure to check out The Magnet, a long-standing rock club on Hardman Street previously known as the Sink Club, where Freddie Mercury and Brian May first graced a stage together.
Glamorous spectacles
If you’re more the type to choose a boutique Liverpool hotel than a grungy hostel,Alma de Cuba on Seel Street is the place to be. Set in a converted Catholic church, the stained glass windows and giant altar set the scene while the carnival dancers get things livened up. On weekend evenings, thousands of rose petals rain down from the upper restaurant onto the heads of those dancing below.
There’s also Circo at the Albert Dock, a circus-themed “bar, restaurant, freak show”. Here, you’ll be served by a waitress dressed in full ringmaster attire amidst surroundings committed to recreating the joy of the big top. Dress up if you’re planning a night here as the bar is populated with stylish and trendy individuals and you might feel out of place in jeans. Albert Dock also offers great sightseeing opportunities with stunning views.
Musical history
Of course, no mention of Liverpool’s nightlife would be complete without a mention of the Cavern Club. This historic music venue, which played host to The Beatles an incredible 292 times, still operates as a live music today, although you may have to elbow past plenty of tourists to see the stage. All kinds of musicians have graced the stage here, from sixties legends like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to recent groups like the Arctic Monkeys. 
So, if you’re planning a last minute break to Liverpool this year, make sure to include some dancing shoes in your luggage and prepare to paint the town red.
