Whether you jump a quick cab or enjoy a summer stroll back up towards Seel Street, don’t miss out on a trip to Kazimier Garden on your travels.

This cosy wonderland is one of Liverpool’s first and best loved hidden gems, favoured by Liverpudlian locals looking for somewhere a little bit different.

Fondly known as ‘The Kaz”, it’s well-worth paying a visit to this alternative hideout for a hybrid of nature and technology, tucked away behind the most urban streets of Liverpool.

The Merchant

Where: Parr Street, Liverpool

Capturing the essence of a chic and rustic Copenhagen bar, there are few better spots to stop off for a tasty gin goblet or cold craft beer.

Oh, and don’t forget to grab a slice of heavenly pizza from Nightcrawler pizza bar, located within The Merchant itself.

We recommend heading outside into the spacious garden area, equipped with plenty of sociable seating space and just the right amount of cosy spots for intimate catch ups.

And to really get the night started, make sure you take your talents to the dance floor. The Merchant plays host to Chibuku and Circus resident DJs, igniting a fantastic atmosphere every single weekend.

Heebie Jeebies

Where: Seel Street, Liverpool

Renowned for its bustling courtyard and three floors of music, there are few bars with better spaces to mingle with locals than Heebie Jeebies.

Heebie Jeebies is a right of passage for Liverpudlians for good reason. With a multitude of lively bar areas and dynamic dance floors, you’re almost guaranteed to leave with a couple of new best mates, even if you met them in the loo.

Expect eclectic DJ nights and live music attracting a diverse crowd of people, from fresh-faced students to working professionals looking to relax.

And of course, you’ll find those most dedicated to Liverpool’s thriving indie scene at Heebies any day of the week, always happy to lend you their lighter in the courtyard!

Late night

Find yourself transported to a tropical paradise at Aloha, Liverpool’s one and only island-themed basement bar.

Leave your worries at the door and head downstairs to an exotic oasis. Aloha’s roots are firmly in Hawaiian and Polynesian culture, so what better spot to spend a summer night out in Liverpool?

Dance the night away to rock ‘n’ roll and reggae sounds whilst sipping on a range of colourful concoctions, from coconuts and cocktails to a sharing treasure chest or tequila conch.

Red Door

Where: Berry Street, Liverpool

Situated just around the corner on Berry Street, continue up to Berry Street and you’ll find an infamous red door.

It may look more like a bar than a club from the outside, but once you’re in you’ll feel the vibrant atmosphere and find yourself up on the dance floor under the neon red lights.

Head outside to the courtyard and up the staircase to Red Door’s Tiki Bar on the terrace, with an exciting cocktail menu Appleton Estate, with 50p from every cocktail going to charity until the end of September.

With a brand new menu launching this month, it’s the perfect time to get down there and try out their flavoursome summer treats before everyone else.

And of course,  don’t miss out on a drunken snap in the photo booth before the night comes to an end. You may need it to rejig your memory in the morning!

We hope you’ve enjoyed our summer guide!
