The Cambridge, on the University of Liverpool campus, is the watering hole for various academics, students and thinking drinkers. And last but certainly not least, there’s The Philharmonic Dining Rooms – a cracking pub in a grade-II listed building with famously ornate toilets.
Liverpool’s LGBT nightlife is centred around Dale Street, Cumberland Street and Eberle Street – all of which surround Stanley Street, the de facto heart of the city’s gay quarter.

If you want something a bit quieter, pubs in the area include The Poste House (with its upstairs disco), The Curzon and the iconic Lisbon.
