Liverpool bar steeped in history which houses a classic cocktail bar

The Royal Institution is located on Colquitt Street, off Seel Street

One of Liverpool’s oldest buildings, The Royal Institution, which opened in 1814 as an organisation promoting literature, science and art, went on to receive its royal charter in 1821.

Steeped in history, The Royal Institution is a beautiful, grand building which has now opened as a classic cocktail bar housing three themed rooms; The Reading Room, The Habitat room and The Exhibition Room where guests can enjoy expertly made cocktails from the talented team.

Now owned by St Hospitality – the group behind Castle Street Townhouse and Seel St Venue – the team strive to keep The Royal Institution’s foundations of its history and themes, most notably John James Audubon’s ‘Birds of America’ exhibition of the early 1800s.

In homage, St Hospitality has designed the bar’s interior according to the rich cultural history of the building that the team is privileged to embrace.

The three intimate rooms, which are all available for private hire separately or for the full venue, are connected by an impressive and grand entrance hall with an iconic and eye-catching flamingo painting that greets guests on their way in.

Complete with an unrivalled cocktail menu that’s been created by The Royal Institution’s talented team, the bar has a selection of classic and signature cocktails as well as a detailed wine list, beers and spirits.

The Exhibition Room is centred around the fully stocked bar, making it the heart of the venue. Honouring the origins of the building, Birds of America themed decor alongside fixed plush seating and an impressive wooden bar top are prominent throughout.

In the Habitat Room, which guests will find tucked away to the rear of the building, boasts privacy. A quieter, intimate setting, for date nights, casual cocktails or perfect for private hire, the green interior matched with eccentric animal-themed interiors, plus an open fireplace provides elegant surroundings.

And finally, the Reading Room, a rich red room that gives a nod to a speakeasy style cocktail bar, paired with contemporary decor which makes the room ooze class!

Also offering cocktail masterclasses, The Royal Institution will provide groups with an informative, fun cocktail making afternoon where guests can learn more about how to make the cocktails before enjoying them!

In January, all table bookings are complete with a complimentary glass of Prosecco for each guest, and there’s two for £14 on cocktails from Sunday-Thursday.
