6 months ago

The night is calling but where will it lead you? In Liverpool you can step into a red telephone box and find yourself transported into a neon drinking den. Or if you’ve got the secret code, into a speakeasy hidden behind a locked door. If you’re looking for quirky bars in Liverpool, here’s eight to choose from. From hardware stores to barbershops, these places aren’t always what they seem.
