The best bars in Liverpool to visit during Eurovision

Eurovision is just around the corner - and hasn't that come around quickly?! Liverpool is going to be absolutely packed, and a lot of us are excited to see the city busy and bustling again. With that in mind I wanted to share some of the best bars in Liverpool to visit during Eurovision, so you can better plan your trip to this incredible city.

Cocktail bars in Liverpool to visit during Eurovision

If cocktails are your jam, then you'll be spoilt for choice when choosing bars in Liverpool to visit during Eurovision. There's plenty, and I've personally been to a fair few of them!

๐Ÿน Slug & Lettuce, North John Street - 2 for 1 on matching cocktails (drink trees available)

๐Ÿน Revolucion de Cuba, Albert Dock - 2 for 1 cocktails during happy hour (3-7pm, Sun-Fri)

๐Ÿน Down the Hatch, Duke Street - 2 for £14 cocktails (completely veggie/vegan food & drink)

๐Ÿน Tonight Josephine, Hanover Street - 2 for 1 cocktails during happy hour (4-9pm Sun-Thu, 11.30pm onwards Fri/Sat)

๐Ÿน Abditory, Queen Avenue - 2 for 1 cocktails on Saturdays

๐Ÿน La Finca Eivissa, Back Colquitt Street - 2 matching cocktails or gins for £15 (Sun-Thurs)

Pubs

Sometimes a traditional pub is more of what you need - quiet but still with some sort of atmosphere. Here are the ones I would highly recommend!

๐Ÿบ Ship & Mitre, Dale Street - beers from across the world, small but cosy, excellent food

๐Ÿบ Lady of Mann, Dale Street - standard pub, big outdoor space

๐Ÿบ The Vines/Big House, Lime Street - recently refurbished, really traditional pub

You can also do yourself a bit of a pub crawl, starting at the 'top of the hill' (Egerton Street) and making your way down to Bold Street where you hit the proper city centre. The pubs you can visit are, in order:

๐Ÿ“Peter Kavanagh's
๐Ÿ“The Blackburne Arms
๐Ÿ“The Caledonia
๐Ÿ“The Philharmonic Dining Rooms
๐Ÿ“Ye Cracke
๐Ÿ“The Pilgrim
๐Ÿ“The Fly in the Loaf
๐Ÿ“Roscoe Head
๐Ÿ“The Grapes
๐Ÿ“The Dispensary

All of these are really iconic Scouse pubs that can't be missed - for example, the Philharmonic is said to have the most stunning (mens') toilets ever, while Ye Cracke is where John Lennon used to drink. The more you know!

Themed bars in Liverpool to visit during Eurovision

I absolutely LOVE a themed bar, and Liverpool has a few good ones. Some are much quieter, while others will be absolutely bouncing!

๐Ÿ”จ Little Hardware, Cropper Street - DIY themed speakeasy, calm and cosy vibes

๐Ÿ’‹ Coyote Ugly Saloon, Bold Street - yes, they dance on the bar...

๐Ÿ˜† Only Fools Bar, Seel Street - Only Fools & Horses themed bar/pub with a large drinks menu and plenty of photo opportunities

๐Ÿช„ The Oracle, Duke Street - cocktails, magicians & more!

๐ŸŸ  Alcotraz, Seel St - fun prison themed bar, sneak your own alcohol in, can dress up

Karaoke bars in Liverpool to visit during Eurovision

The city is, of course, awash with karaoke bars. And if you're a big Eurovision fan, it's likely that you love a bit of singing too. With that in mind, here are some of the city's best bars in Liverpool to visit during Eurovision for karaoke!
