Liverpool is famously known for its football, but this Northern metropolis city outside of London also knows a thing or two when it comes to music. Notoriously known as the birthplace of The Beatles, this city is making waves as an attraction for party and music-lovers. Here are Liverpool’s most famous music venues:

Liverpool Philharmonic 

This is one of UK’s most progressive music organisations. It was founded in 1840 by a group of Liverpool music lovers, and holds over 80 concerts each season attracting an audience of more than 370,000 each year and world class artists with performances which range from classical, contemporary, rock, pop, fold, roots, and jazz to comedy, film and spoken word. Rest assured, whatever your musical taste-buds, this mash-up of diversity and gigs will be a winner!

Heebie Jeebies

If you’re looking for a fun night out in Liverpool, look no further. Locals over the last 7 years have raved about this Independent joint being one of the best places to go out in Liverpool, hosting various events, from music to food and drink festivals and event cult film nights.


The Jacaranda

Remember The Beatles? Then you need to know about the Jacaranda club in Liverpool. It opened in the 1950s as a coffee bar and eventually became an iconic hangout for John Lennon and Stuart Sutcliffe, who used the basement as a rehearsal studio. If you’re all about the non-pretentious vibes, this is the pub for you.

Kazimier Garden

This funky and open-space establishment is a perfect hybrid of nature and technology. They pride themselves on their unique upcycled furniture and one-of-a-kind gravel dance floor to serve all kinds of live music.

After 60 years, the beat goes on and the Cavern Club is still thriving as a contemporary music venue and known as one of the most popular nightclubs in the world. Staging some of the biggest names around, from The Beatles way back in the1950s to the 21st century indie rock band, the Arctic Monkeys, oh and Sir Paul McCartney…. to name a few.
