As dusk falls RopeWalks changes its colours in a big way. The bustling day time independent shopping quarter littered with cool coffee shops, quirky cafes and creative businesses transforms itself into an international night time entertainment destination. With over 100,000 evening visitors on any typical weekend, experiencing and being part of RopeWalks after dark is a must. The choice at night time in RopeWalks is vast. Take a walk down famous Seel Street and have a couple of drinks in the funky bars such as Peacocks before dining in one of Liverpool’s most spectacular restaurants and bars, Alma De Cuba, set inside the conversion of the former St Peters Church. Winner of Best Bar, Best Restaurant and the UK’s Best venue accolade, with an eclectic mix of Cuban, Hispanic and Latin influences.
If food isn’t on the menu turn onto Slater Street and take in live music at some of Liverpool oldest pub venues, including the home of the Beatles first gig, The Jacaranda before moving onto Wood Street and the coolest hub of bars Liverpool has to offer including Vodka Revolution, Igloo and Chameleon. When the hours draw later most people make haste for one of RopeWalks two epicentres to party the night away, the famous Wolstenholme and Concert Squares. Wolstenholme Square is Liverpools clubbing capital and the birthplace of the international brand CREAM where thousands still meet to share their cult passion for dance, bright lights and distinct sounds. Whilst on your way pop into Parr Street Studios for a drink, voted one of the top 50 bars in the UK and the studio where Coldplay, Barry Manilow, Take That, Spice Girls & Diana Ross recorded, now converted to become one of the latest hot spots.

Surrounded by bars, pubs and clubs on all sides and in the small cobbled streets that feed into it, the Concert Square area is residence to major night time brands such as Walkabout, Flares, Llyods Bar, Modo, Yates, the home of the original Bar Baa and so many more. A night in Concert Square will only leave you wanting to come back to RopeWalks for more.
