From the cool bars in its Baltic Triangle to old-fashioned boozers and snazzy bistros, Liverpool’s nightlife has a late-night licence to whet your whistle, whatever your tipple
A Liverpool institution, the Everyman Theatre which launched the careers of Bill Nighy, Julie Walters, Pete Postlethwaite and Antony Sher reopened in February after a £27m refurbishment in fact, a complete rebuild. Downstairs, the bistro and bar attracts a diverse local crowd, as well as more serious theatre-goers. The bistro has tables and banquettes with adjustable lights that can be moved up and down to suit diners’ moods and the bars are made from old school chemistry desks. The Wi-Fi is second to none, which is important in a city where bars don’t take it seriously enough.
