Described as being for ‘homos, fauxmos, gender-blenders, full-time queers and part-time Brendas’, and hailed as ‘the club that saved Liverpool’, Sonic Yootha thrives because its playlist is as eclectic as they come – think Kylie and Patti Smith back to back. With a welcoming door policy that means you can go with both your same-sex partner and your mum, this is the Baltic Triangle’s most inclusive club (and probably the most fun).
Liverpool’s nightlife is nothing if not diverse. Much like its thriving bar and pub culture, the city’s club scene has not only survived but developed into one of the best in the country. That’s due, in part, to the fine venues available in which to host the clubs but it’s also because of Liverpool’s ever-strong independence bringing new ideas and an evolution of club culture that continues to grow. So, if you want to lose yourself in a massive space where the strobes, music and crowds care all-consuming, or if you’d prefer a club where you can hear something by Ladytron followed by Grace Jones while you kiss your partner after a day at Pride and then wave at your old headteacher from the bar, you’re pretty well catered for. Ready to get out there? From mainstream nightlife destinations to LGBTQ+-friendly underground spaces, our pick of the best clubs in Liverpool should make any (wannabe) scouser proud.
