A Few of Our Favourites

Below are a few of the favourites that we just had to mention, and some we’re sure you’ll visit during your time in Liverpool. 


Can you really consider yourself a student if you’ve never been to Popworld? We think not!  It really is a cheap and cheerful night out with classic singalongs and old bangers playing right through to the early hours. Whether you need to let your hair down on a Tuesday night or fancy ending your Saturday night with a good singalong, you won’t be disappointed. On weekends Popworld will be popular among those visiting the city for the weekend such as hen dos and stag dos, as well as students alike. 

What’s more? Popworld is under one mile from true Liverpool accommodation, so you’re never far from your bed at the end of the night. 


Flares prides itself on the 70s, 80s and 90s classic playlists and great mid-week deals on shots and drinks so you can enjoy yourself whilst sticking to your budget. 

Located on Mathew Street, Flares is just 1.1 miles from true Liverpool.
