    Krazy House: Indie Classics & Hard Rock

    by SapineKuu Updated Jun 17, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The great thing about the Krazy House is it attracts such a mixed bunch of people. Indie, goths and more conventional clubbers all rub shoulders. Great atmosphere and good music particularly at weekends.

    Open Thurs- Sat 21.00 - 03.00

    Dress Code: Wear what you like.

    Ye Cracke: John Lennon Was Here

    Outside Drinking Area
    1 more image

    The Cracke is a great little pub where John formed his first band 'The Dissenters' in 1960. The great news is the decor and layout have hardly changed. Unlike many establishments it retains a maze of little rooms and the walls still sport a rather crazy mural from the '60's. The pub attracts a rather diverse clientele including students for the near by Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. This Institute was part financed by that other guy Paul McCartney. The pub has recently opened up the rear yard making a popular outdoor drinking area.

    Dress Code: Anything goes!

    Korova is one of the coolest clubs in Liverpool. If it sounds familiar well it takes its name from the milk bar in Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange. Fortunately its drinks don't tend to lead to the same behaviour. Come here to listen and dance to indie, electro and other beats. Korova has top DJ's and live music. Best on Friday nights. 9.00 - 4.00am

    Dress Code: Cool does it

    Blue

    Nice modern lounge with some good food as well. It's setting right in the Albert Dock does the rest. I really liked that place.

    Dress Code: Well, tehy let us in with our tourist look. Usually it's kind of a modern bar and you shouldn't probably wear your oldest ACDC shirt.

  • Garlands: Fairies across the Mersey

    by ClareBear Written Jun 16, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To me Garlands is the best Club in Liverpool, there are others, but this one is the Top Banana!

    Warning - It is gay friendly, so if your in a big group of lads, you are not going to get in, and if you look abit dodgy you have got no chance. Your best bet would be to grab a girl off the street who is going and go in as a couple.

    When you arrive you will be searched. They know people will be off their heads in there and it is the doorman/womans duty to take anything they find on you off you.

    Once you get in you have never experienced anything like it.

    The music is great, there are 4 rooms. One upstairs which plays your normal dance music. This room is the funniest. There are transvestites strutting there stuff on the stages, glamour girls giving it large, well presented men (on both buses!) trying to impress the girls and boys. You really will have an excellent time here.

    Downstairs is two chill-out rooms, one which plays all kinds of music, from Beyonce to Jason Donovan, the trannie DJs are so funny and join in the fun.

    The other chill out room is just full of people well properly off there heads and chilling out, if thats your thing, then you'll meet loads of people and make friends in here and get invited to loads of parties after the Club has shut.

    The Music in the downstair club area, I feel is a little trancy and hardcorish, but everyone in there is having an absolute wail of a time.

    Dress Code: If your a girl, the shortest skirt ever, but make sure you look classy not trashy. You have to really shake your ass in there! Bling and lots of it - false tacky bling is alright! Glamourama is the key to getting in this place.

    If your a boy, feel free to dress like a woman, the more lipstick the better. You will find it easier to get in! For those men that dont feel like putting on a dress smart casual is fine (no trackies - only scallies were them and they dont let scallies in!)

    Jeans are allowed in here, not sure about trainers though!

    Baby Cream

    Liverpool has strong historical links with the Cream clubbing empire. Unfortunately the original Cream is no more and the legendary Creamfields Festival has found a new home this year. The good news is Baby Cream continues to grow. Different location down on the Albert Dock waterfront. Ambient dance sounds combined with a great venue make it worth checking out. Try out their cool 'Creamselector' to burn any tracks you hear and take away to remind you of that lost weekend in the 'pool!

    High Society: High Society, 64 Duke Street

    by Will_Forbes Written Jun 18, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Opening Night!

    Playing some of the cities best funky and disco house music, High Society has emerged as one of the best nightclubs in Liverpool.

    It labels itself a "members only" club, but you can get in even if you aren't a member - just make sure that you arrive early! Open on Fridays and Saturdays from 10pm till 4am, and Sundays from 9pm till 2am, this is one of Liverpool's trendiest clubs.

    Society hosts one of the most attractive dancefloors in the country - nearly everyone is beautiful!

    Host to some top name DJs:
    Residents are Les Calvert, Mike Di Scala (of Ultrabeat fame) and Dave Whelan.
    Guest DJs have included John Cotton, Steve Parry, Thomas Tuft, Antoine Clamaran, DJ Flex, Greg Di Mano, Hed Kandi, Disco Galaxy Recordings and many more.

    High Society is located in Duke Street, which is parallel to Bold Street, but nearer the docks. It is about the same height up as Concert Square, and a two minute walk from Concert Square.

    Make sure that you at least try to go to this fantastic club whilst in Liverpool. Music to suit everyone, as there are three different rooms.

    Strong anti-drugs policy, so don't even try! But who needs drugs to have fun in a place like Society!

    Wicked club - DO NOT MISS OUT!

    Check out http://www.societyuk.com to see what is on.

    Dress Code: The dress code is fashionable. Some very avant-garde styles are displayed. Mainly high fashion designer labels, e.g. Armani, Evisu, D&G, Gucci etc.

    DO NOT WEAR A TRACKSUIT!

    The bouncers don't let scallies in, so try and look smart, but shaved heads often look like you are a scally! It helps to have an attractive girl on your arm!

    Carling Academy Liverpool 1 & 2: Live Music

    by SapineKuu Written Jul 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to see some great bands whilst in Liverpool check out the Carling Academy 1 & 2. From the outside it looks like an old factory unit and guess what? it looks the same from inside as well! Actually it is well suited to its purpose no seats but two concert areas and plenty of bar space within the actual concert area. Recent acts have included KT Tunstall, Zero 7, Bic Runga & Jose Gonzalez. Saw all of them and all were brilliant nights.

    Dress Code: None

    liverpool artwork

    Just whilst you are here in Concert St notice the artwork known as the Tango - just on the corner near the Aussie Bar - showing two dancers intertwined in the act of the Tango, arms outstrectched.This design by Allen Jones 1984 is yet another artwork originally produced for the International Garden in Liverpool in 1984 - the yellow subamarine also came from here.
    A Liverpool charity - the Liverpool art and design trust has been suporting their rejuvenation around the city.
    I also like this one of an Aussie!

  • The Philharmonic: A COMFORTABLE PUB

    Isn't this comfortable, Steve?

    This is probably the most spectacular pub in Liverpool. I haven't seen any others unfortunately but it really can't get any better than this!

    The interieur design is fantastic: great ceilings, decorated walls, little rooms with a fireplace, mosaic floors etc etc.

    The men's toilets were voted England's best toilets. Make sure to check them out. Yes, ladies, you as well! Ask the barman and check whether there's nobody in there and you can have a look as well!

    Carling O2 Academy: A Great Night

    by Evenith666 Written Mar 24, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The O2 Academy Liverpool is a great nightclub in the heart of the city. They regularly have live bands on, usually the less well known and small local bands, however it does also play host to several more well known bands such as Echo and the Bunnymen, The Macabees, In Flames and Twisted Wheel).
    Wednesday is 'Revolution', and claims to be the 'Only Alternative Wednesday'. It doesnt get that busy, and coulod certainly hold about a hundred more people than were in when I went, but it was still a good night with good atmosphere around the dancefloor.
