81LTD

81LTD LiverpoolThose looking for a slick, sexy evening of tunes and top cocktails could do worse than head to 81LTD. Situated above dive bar Salt Dog Slim’s, up a hidden stairway at the back, you gain access by typing a code that’s texted to you beforehand. Entering is like stepping into a cool Manhattan loft with a DJ set up in the corner, exposed brickwork, mirrored back bar and silver art deco ceiling tiles.

The beautiful crowd comes to drink here, and it shows, with a full champagne list on offer in the cocktail menu (no other wines are listed in it). The staff are particularly proud of their Old Fashioned twists. Or for a serious late-night tipple, try a Hold Your Plums, a rich concoction of Nikka from the Barrel, plum sake, date syrup and Angostura Bitters.

Pull up a pew, order a drink and watch everyone get down – or get involved and pull some shapes yourself. There’s room for everyone here.

Best Bars tip: Be sure to text the bar’s phone number well beforehand in order to get the access code for the door.
