3 weeks ago
It’s showtime, and if you haven’t enjoyed an amazing night out or an early morning breakfast at Albert’s Schloss in Liverpool then there’s only one question: what are you waiting for?
Albert’s Schloss, the Alpine-inspired cook haus and Bohemian bier palace opened last month and it’s already become of the city’s top party places.
So if you haven’t been and need to get it in your diary for a visit, then here’s 10 things you need to know.
1. Where is Albert’s Schloss?
Albert’s Schloss has taken over the former food market at Radiant House in Bold Street, and it’s open from 9am to 12am, every day.
2. Royal heritage
Schloss is German for a castle, palace or manor house, often built as a retreat for recreation and pleasure. After the death of her husband Prince Albert, Queen Victoria began many years of mourning and named buildings up and down the country in his honour… and this is named after him too.
You couldn’t get more cosy than this bar and restaurant, with its stylish take on a rustic, mountain- lodge or log cabin. Think wooden beams and flooring, and lovely snug booths, as well as plush furry-lined seats and barrel and stein decoration.
4. Breakfast is served
Albert’s Schloss Liverpool serves up breakfast every day from 9am to noon. The breakfast menu includes signature freshly haus-baked Kroissant Royale, a croissant filled with sweet slow cooked onions, gouda, Burford Brown fried egg, crispy shallots and chives, with a choice of smoked back bacon, Bratwurst, or vegan Moving Mountains Sausage. You can even have a full Cook Haus Breakfast, Spicy Mushroom Royale, Turkish Eggs, and the list goes on.
5. Pancake perfection
Albert’s Schloss also serves up the best fluffy pancakes with a choice of savoury maple bacon and Burford Brown egg, or sweet vanilla berries and cream toppings; and the in-haus bakery creates delicious pastries daily.
6. From the Cook Haus
There’s a daily menu of rustic and indulgent Bavarian-inspired dishes, along with Bier Hall favourites such as bratwursts and schnitzel. Mouthwatering menu favourites include the Cook Haus Cheeseburger, Pan Roasted Seabass, Coquille Pretzel Pie, Paprikash Chicken and, along with a range of kebabs and more, of course there’s Steigl bier-battered fish and chips. On Sunday – you’ll find it hard to beat their roast dinner with two and three course options and choices like Lancashire beef and Cheshire chicken, as well as a vegetarian winter strudel.
7. Let showtime commence
There’s everything from the weird to the wild to entertain you at Albert’s but one thing’s for sure, it’s always wonderful – like Thursday evening’s Kunst Kabaret which invites you to the dark corners of the performance and cabaret world, or on Friday evenings, Baby Grand Slam with duelling pianos and endless requests, as two pianists go head-to-head with the Slam Band.
8. Saturday’s Pleasure Palace
At weekend the party really gets started with entertainment to make sure everyone’s up and dancing in – and on – their seats. From DJ sets to Albert’s Haus band, and live acts, there’s hour after hour of superb performance to create a spectacular show.
9. Raise your glasses
Did someone say drink? Because there’s everything you’d ever want here, from the artisan Haus-made Schnapps to a feast of biers in bottles and on tap, including Austrian Stiegl Goldbrau, German Paulaner Munich and Klopp’s favourite, Erdinger Wiessbrau. There’s also a huge selection of wines and spirits, and cocktails from your classic margarita and espresso martini, to specials like a Black Forest Martini with Sipsmith gin, White Cacoa, Sang Morlacco cherry, cranberry, cream and chocolate.
