12 of the best party places for hire in Liverpool City Centre

Scousers love a good party, but if you’re a popular person and you want to invite all your friends and family to your next shindig, it’s going to be hard to have it in your own home.

And why would you?

There are plenty of places perfect for that birthday bash, engagement do, or a works’ get together, and where you can organise food, drinks and all your favourite dance tunes – without upsetting the neighbours – or, even, a special party experience!

The Bridewell

Close to Liverpool ONE, The Bridewell in Campbell Square’s got a great reputation for its unusual and fascinating bar area in the cells of this former Liverpool lock-up. But what might not be so well known is its fab function room – once home to the Bridewell’s police sergeant. The spacious room’s been refurbished with loads of dark wooden tables and chairs, padded bench areas and its own well-stocked bar.

Royal Institution

A sophisticated and elegant venue with a rich city history, its ornate décor – and especially the pink flamingo that fills one wall of the imposing entrance hall – is certain to impress.  The newly reopened bar in Colquitt Street has three main rooms all tastefully decorated and oozing with class, and each one is available for hire. Royal Institution has its own event organisers who can provide music and entertainment from DJs to local artists to help you dance the night away, and its Cocktail Masterclass could be the ideal thing to make that occasion go with a swing.

The Bold Street bar and restaurant is everybody’s favourite when it comes to laid back dining, weekend drinks, and more, but its first floor space, they say, can transform into the perfect celebratory hub – for sell out gigs, to book launches birthday parties and twinkly, candlelit weddings.

Albert’s Schloss

The Alpine-inspired cook haus and Bohemian bier palace opened in December and it’s already one of the city’s top party places, thanks to its fabulous food and drink and it spectacular cabaret and live music showtime.
