Liverpool is steeped in musical history, from jumping live-music venues to superstar DJ’s and some of the UK’s leading clubs. The Dock Front bars crawl with the stylish movers and shakers, while further up town the Hope Street Quarter is home to winning theatres and classical concert halls.

Liverpool Nightlife


Cream was the essential nightclub of 1990s Britian, a house music institution of global fame, and BabyCream is its cool young sibling. The slick restaurant and DJ bar is a hangout of soccer players and their WAGs (Wives and Girlfriends).

The Masque is a former theatre that still plays host to live bands, but the Circus residency is all about large house tunes. Another spin-off from the Cream stable, Circus throngs with heaving, sweating, mad-for-it clubbers.

The Baltic Fleet

Liverpool’s finest traditional pub is a bit scruffy, but it’s the perfect place to sample the great British pint, hand-crafted in its own on-site brewery. The food is good too.

The Cavern Club

Even though a renovation in the 1980s restored the club to its original design, the definitive Beatles venue has still changed a bit since its 1960s heyday. To this day, the Cavern functions as a live music venue covering all genres.
