10 Christmas nights (and bites) out you can book now in Liverpool

Works dos aren’t happening, so at least there’ll be no chance of starting 2021 having to apologise to the boss, but we can still have a proper Christmas night out in Liverpool!

We’ve spent enough time in our own households this year, now we can have a Christmas party with them. Even if you don’t fancy the full sit-down roast, there’s loads of alternatives to get the festivities started …


If you want a Christmas do without any awkward silences, PINS Social Club on Duke Street could be the one because from bowling to shuffleboard, and first-rate food to the best behind the bar, it’s taken socialising back to the days when a night out was a real event. You’ll get music, games, and the chance to have a laugh so it’s basically got everything you need for the best Christmas celebration. You can even tailor your party with a ‘purpose-build playland’.

Book your place here.

Baltic Market

Baltic Market is all about getting together for a great time together, and that’s even more true at Christmas. We’ve missed the market during lockdown but now it’s back open and it’s got lots of lovely stuff planned for December including new cocktails, winter warmers, live music and some festive specials – plus Hafla Hafla have got halloumi in blankets so it’s got to be worth a trip to Cains just for them.

More info here. 

Punch Tarmey’s

You’re guaranteed great craic here because Punch Tarmey’s is as famous for its live music as it is for its impressive range of drinks including rare Irish whiskeys and gin. It’s re-branded recently, moving from a traditional pub to an Irish restaurant, so it’s celebrating that with a brand-new menu filled with favourites from ribs, burgers, steaks and, of course, dirty fries. It’s got a great new outdoor space too.

Visit the website here.


Jimmy’s opposite the Bombed Out Church is all about amazing food, drinks and music and now it’s back open from Friday with specials to make up for all those weeks we’ve missed. Jimmy’s new Rock ‘n’ Roll BBQ would be absolutely perfect for a Christmas night out – it includes trays of Korean beef shortrib, beer can chicken and seitan BBQ ‘ribs’ – and there’s a new Sunday menu too, served up to 8pm. Jimmy’s crumble and jam roly poly are exactly what December needs.

New Liverpool ONE restaurant Boujee

The new Kenyons Steps bar and restaurant goes from family-friendly in the day to buzzing at night so it’s a really good place for a Christmas night out. It serves sharing plates and sushi; signature cocktails and drinks, and Champagne – there’s even a VIP and private dining space if you fancy an upgrade.

With a convertible pink car, giant candy area, and themed ‘pool party’ and ‘Alice in Boujeeland’ areas, it’s made for Insta pics and Christmas is all about sharing.

More info here.

Club House Lodges

Tis the season to eat, drink and be merry, and The Club House in Liverpool ONE has got the perfect place to enjoy the festive cheer with its cosy Winter Lodges, back by popular demand and ideal for huddling with your bubble or household. The individual festive lodges are available to hire for drinks and karaoke (let’s face it, it’s not a Christmas party until someone’s done a dodgy Fairytale of New York). Reservations are for 1h 45 mins and you can book with a £5 refundable deposit per person.

See the menu and more here.


Liberte rooftop bar and restaurant, overlooking the Liver Building, has been voted the UK’s best view and after dark it looks really stunning. Now as an added attraction it’s got an apres-ski style winter village, with 16 private chalet lodges to hire. They’re all heated and with music, each one can seat up to six, plus you can choose from a menu of hot toddies, hot chocolates, mulled wine and ski shots as well as street food.

Duke Street Market

Duke Street Market has had a gorgeous Christmas makeover and it’s now boasting what has to be the most photo-worthy tree in town. Celebrate your pre-Christmas get together, under the huge floating tree, by working your way around all the different traders – it’s got Cucina di Vincenzo, Cahita, Cinder, Indigo Greens, Bone and Block, and Ginger there now – and look out for festive specials, Christmas cocktails and a weekend brunch menu.

Plan your visit here.


If you want somewhere where there’s always a party atmosphere whatever time of year it is, then McCooley’s on Concert Square or Mathew Street is definitely it. They’ve just launched a new Christmas menu so you’ve now got the option of roast turkey – or a mushroom and brie veggie wellington – alongside the usual favourites. You can book midweek before 5pm, then it’s walk-ins in the evenings and weekends, so be early to grab a table.

More info here.


Revolution at the Albert Dock and St Peters Square are both back open and on form heading into the Christmas party season. As well as their amazing cocktails, you’ll be needing to order some food too so maybe upgrade your usual burger to a Festive Feast Burger, or give the new Festive Bottomless Brunch a try. It includes mulled wine and mulled cider and it’s available every day right through December which makes it even easier to get everyone together.

More info here.


Because if you’re not careful you can get a bit sick of the sight of turkey by the time Christmas Day comes around, mix it up a bit and get together over a massive pizza instead! The Maluco guys are getting those 18-inch pizzas flying out, they’ve got all the Christmas deccies up and they’ve got the tunes going too so that’s pretty much everything you need right there. And you can avoid festive arguments by ordering a half & half.

More info here.


Fred’s on Hope Street is one of the cosiest places to be on a winter day or night thanks to the big fire roaring away, and it’s got a brilliant option for anyone who fancies a bit of a dance with their Christmas dinner. DJ John Dean is back on Fridays and Saturdays for Christmas dinner ‘n’ disco, so you’re guaranteed loads of disco tunes and festive classics. If daytime’s more your thing, Fred’s does a Festive Brunch 12-5, Thurs to Sat too.
