The main areas of Liverpool

Baltic Triangle

A former industrial area littered with warehouses, Baltic Triangle is now home to studios, casual canteen eateries, a garden for outdoor events at Constellations arts centre, plus a graffitied skatepark. Its quaint cafes and niche bars, their walls adorned with unique graffiti and art murals, are filled with creatives and students while the night brings an edgy buzz to garage raves and dance clubs.

Regular pop-up events and restaurants also add to the lively vibe in the area. This year, the popular Caine's Brewery hosted the Alpine Pop-up Restaurant over Christmas, serving delicious food, spiced mulled wine, craft beers, live music, DJs, saxophone players and much more. Festivals such as Liverpool Sound City and Positive Vibrations feature pop, rock, reggae and more.

Cavern Quarter

The Cavern Quarter is the area surrounding the world famous Cavern Club, where the story began for The Beatles. During the 60's, The Beatles started making a name for themselves, singing in the cellar of the Cavern Club to small audiences, before shooting to fame.

The area attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists every year who come to see where John, Paul, George and Ringo used to jam before hitting the big time. Revellers flock to The Beatles-themed pubs and bars packed with The Beatles memorabilia. Clubs and bars around Stanley Street are part of a dynamic gay nightlife scene.

In 2018, the Magical Beatles Museum opened it's doors for the first time, featuring a plethora of never-before-seen Beatles memorabilia spanning 3 floors.


Home to the largest Chinese Arch outside of China, and Europe's oldest living Chinese community, Liverpool’s China town features some of the best eateries and bars in the city. The Arch itself was constructed to commemorate the twinning of Liverpool and Shanghai and was built entirely by hand from pieces imported directly from China.
