Alma de Cuba

Alma de Cuba, Liverpool. Courtesy Alma de Cuba

Set inside the magnificent conversion of the former St. Peters Catholic Church on Seel Street, Alma de Cuba in Liverpool is an eclectic mix of Cuban, Hispanic, and Latin American influences. The astounding interior, which was restored in 2003, retains many of its 224 year-old features, including the original marble altar and numerous ecclesiastical statues. There’s a lot to take in, and with the Mojitos setting you back £8, it’s worth taking slow sips while you admire the surroundings. A spiral staircase leads up to the Latin-inspired restaurant, which occupies a mezzanine overlooking the bar. Sundays here feature a Gospel Brunch menu, complete with choir – perhaps an apt time to repent for the sins of the night before?
