    Liverpool Pubs

    Heading to liverpool for a lot of drinks next weekend and was wondering where the best places to go are these days...

    Was last there with some locals about 4 years ago and they took us to some canny bars and ended up in this massive club with about 3 or 4 floors (memory is hazey) that had an icebath full of drink on the ground floor..... is that place stil there as it had brilliant music.. and by brilliant i mean they played bon jovi and proclaimers......!!!!

    I think Matthew St is the Main area. Slaters for your cheap vodke and then a whole bunch of other bars, some of them were actually pretty good. But that what years ago so things might have changed.
    Bar CaVa was also pretty good last time I went (during the day so was empty), they have a wall of different flavoured Tequilla. Seriously, pretty much anything you could imagine was there including Baked Bean tequilla - which had baked beans in it!

    My favourite is, and always will be, the wonderful Flanagan's Apple on Matthew St.

    Well open pubs would be a little more useful.. although some of the boys coming can "open" most buildings if needed........

    There's a cracking* pub which is next to a shopping precinct which was absolutely kicking on a saturday afternoon. Full of 50+s doing Karaoke and the dodgiest looking chicken legs on offer as a pub snack on the bar. Surreal!

    *may not be cracking to most but the atmosphere was ace!

    The 3 storey monolith you speak of is definitely The Krazyhouse on Wood Street, the only decent club in Liverpool. It's very close to CaVa which is pretty good too. Just up the way, again on Wood Street is Django's Riff, nice cocktails and alternative dubstep/hip-hop.

    You could also try Mojo's - "cool" music, but has the "cool" kids to go with it...or The Pilgrim, which is a bit out of the way, but is a bit more traditional. I think they do triples for £2...
