Shady Duck


If you want a decent cocktail bar in the Ropewalks area of Liverpool, head to Shady Duck. It’s welcoming and completely lacking in pretension but the cocktails beat those you’ll find in many snootier places.

Overhead, twinkly lights hang from the ceiling adding a softer edge to the exposed brick and graffiti walls and decor is colourful and cheerful – with plenty of duck paraphernalia.

There’s a decent wine selection and plenty of beer but the cocktails are what Shady Duck is known for with a seasonal menu and some killer signatures. The XOXO is a real favourite. If you’re after some content for Instagram, there’s plenty of choice with smoking drinks, flaming drinks and plain stylish drinks too.

The atmosphere is a good mix between weekend fun and midweek relaxation – there’s even a weekly chess night where players get 25% off drinks for the duration of their game (so it pays not to be checkmated too quickly).
