Liverpool’s vast array of bars means there’s an option for every occasion. Sometimes having so much choice though means it’s impossible to make a decision. I’ve done the hard work for you therefore and narrowed down 5 of the most cosy and romantic bars across the city for the perfect date night. Thank me later.
That fateful green light on Seel Street is both a blessing and a curse. Lurking behind said light is the city’s only bar dedicated to absinthe. Not a choice for the faint hearted, Some Place is the ultimate place to head to if you fancy impressing your date with your ability to neck a seriously strong cocktail without having to run to the bathroom straight afterwards. With a selection of absinthe based drinks to choose from it’s the setting that makes this one so romantic. Think distressed and cosy vibes with low lighting to set the intimate mood; it’s the perfect stop off if you’re feeling brave.
If you fancy a cocktail with some seriously good views then Panoramic 34 is the one for you. Impress your date with views across the city and beyond with a trip up to the 34th floor. They offer everything from afternoon tea to a full dinner menu but personally I don’t think you can beat some chilled drinks in the bar longue. Sip on a Porn Star Martini (or whatever your cocktail of choice may be) and take in everything from the Liver Building to the Anglican Cathedral.
Not just for the summer months, the Kazimier Garden is ideal if you fancy making the most of the great outdoors. Snuggle up to your date amongst fairy lights and fires to ensure you both stay warm. There’s often live music on and you can’t get much more romantic than sipping a beverage beneath the stars can you?
This little beauty is fast becoming my favourite bar in the city full stop. Furnivals Well is in fact a converted victorian police station. Settle down in a booth that was once a cell (I kid you not) and sip on one of the vast array of cocktails on offer. These guys are the whizz kids of cocktails and there’s something on the menu to suit every taste. Combine a tonne of exposed brick with all the candles and mood lighting you can find and you’ve got yourself the most romantic gaff in town.
Berry and Rye
Brought to you by the same people as Furnivals Well, Berry and Rye is the original hidden bar. Playing on the theme of the old American speakeasies this isn’t a place you’ll find on the map. There’s no sign outside so you’ll have to do a fair bit of hunting down Berry Street before you find it. If you’re lucky enough to make it inside you’ll be met with leather booths and intimate tables for two. Pick from the menu wisley and you’ll find yourself sampling some of the North West’s finest cocktails.
Whether it’s a first date or an anniversary night out, picking one of these is a sure fire way to impress.
