Clubbing In Liverpool
Partygoers flock to Liverpool every weekend to visit some
of the best – and most famous – nightclubs
in the world.
So if you fancy shaking your booty until the early hours
or just want to stand on the sidelines and enjoy a cocktail
or two, this city has got just what you’re looking
For the ultimate Liverpudlian night out why not head to
the most famous club in the world, The Cavern Club
[map] , situated in the heart of the centre. This club witnessed
almost 300 performances by the Beatles in the early 60s,
and hence firmly established itself as the birthplace
of a music revolution that changed the world forever.
These days the club continues its success in providing
live entertainment but there are now also three extra
rooms playing different types of music, including retro
Another world famous club that is well worth a visit if
you’re into dance music is Cream, which plays
at the Nation nightclub just off Slater Street. It became
the trendsetter for clubs of the 90s and has played host
to an array of famous DJs, including Boy George, Dave Morales and Judge Jules. Unfortunately
Cream now only puts on occasional gigs at Nation [map] but there is the annual Creamfields UK festival in the
city every August.
If you’re looking to step back in time and enjoy
the sounds of the 60s and 70s then Cloud 9 at L2 and Flares are the perfect venues for you.
Situated in the city centre, L2 [map] plays host to a wide range of club nights but Saturdays
seem to be the most popular with the arrival of Cloud
9. The club is spread over two floors, with the lower
dance floor playing host to the sounds of 60s soul while
the first floor offers indie and rock music.
And the 70s are relived at Flares [map] on Mathew Street, where white suits, medallions and platform
shoes are the ultimate in fashion. Here you are guaranteed
a fantastic night out and you’ll probably find it
very hard to resist hitting the dance floor Tony Manero-style!
The clientele is diverse and many dress up for the occasion,
although normal clubbing gear is just as welcome.
Other clubs worth a visit in Liverpool include Blue
Angel, where the Beatles had their first audition, Zanzibar, which advertises itself as the city’s
only underground club, and the ever popular Le Bateau.
Located on Seel Street, Blue Angel [map] boasts five bars and two dance floors. During the week
it mainly attracts the student crowd but at weekends its
appeal widens to anyone who likes dance music.
Just up the road you’ll find Zanzibar [map] that claims to be Liverpool's only underground club,
although live music is not as prominent as it once was
since the club introduced regular DJs.
Tucked away in a quiet spot in the city centre is Le
which has three floors with two bars and dance floors
that ensure a cool night out for all. Saturday nights
are firm favourites when the Liquidation Club Night takes place, while Friday plays host to Voodoo and Thursdays have become popular jazz nights.
