Vice Liverpool

Vice Liverpool

Once you’ve received a few you come to understand that there are commonalities when it comes to press releases, certain claims that are made whatever the subject. One that has rocketed in popularity over recent years is “instagrammable”, every new venue, menu, or cocktail lays claim to being the most instagrammable around. It’s a daft word that we all unfortunately understand but seemingly can’t apply correctly. Oooh, miaow!

Vice Liverpool

Until now. Recently, I visited a new venue that absolutely lived up to the claim. Liverpool’s newest nightclub and cocktail bar, Vice, located on Fleet Street (just round the corner from Concert Square but don’t let that distract you).

From the get-go, Vice makes you want to get your phone out. From the mirrored entrance stairs (great to see how your hair is looking from every angle), you walk into a room which is the definition of bold. Spotting neon arches framing a bar, you walk across a black and white striped floor past… half a Ferrari? But don’t worry, the other half is safely embedded into another wall just around the corner, it’s very much a seen-to-be-believed aesthetic.

Vice Liverpool

If this sounds like a lot, that’s because it is but in a really fun way. It’s knowingly over the top, enveloping the 80’s Miami aesthetic in a big bear hug. Yes, there are selfie spots aplenty but there’s also a cracking cocktail list containing all your faves, old and new – hello there Versace’s Last Breath. Head down during happy hour – a pleasingly late 7-9pm, even on Saturday – and it’s 2 for £12.
