Do you love the sickly sweetness of sugar-coated Pop music, if so then PopWorld is where it’s at.

Dance the night away in a personal nostalgic bubble to the soundtrack of your childhood with other Pop mad individuals.

This fabulous late night hot spot has been at the top of the list for the Poppiest Liverpool night out for over a decade, and it looks like it’s here to stay.

The Tube

Where: Mathew Street

Take a trip through a time warp by 30 plus years as you descend from the hustle and bustle of Mathew Street and enter The Tube.

All you need is a pair of your best disco dancing shoes and the need to dance and sing along to the only good thing to come from the 80’s; the music.

The soundtrack is a none stop night of power ballads, cheesy chart toppers and tunes that will have you whipping out your air guitar to perform a legendary solo performance of a lifetime.

If you’ve never recovered from Saturday Night Fever and fancy yourself a Flash on the dance floor then head to Flares for your retro Liverpool night out.

You and your party can get down, get down to tunes that topped the charts way back when the fashion was as funky as the hair do’s.

Think bell bottoms, afro wigs, huge Wayfarer style plastic shades, a light up dancefloor and of course the grooviest soundtrack direct from the Top of The Pops archives.

The Magnet

Where: Hardman Street

Standing strong for nearly 60 years now, The Magnet, formerly The Rumblin Tum or The Sink Club is a firm favourite of those who enjoy the music of old.

Even though they’re known for hosting awesome music nights the performers usually come armed with cover tracks from chart legends.

The bar even has hosted the one and only Freddie Mercury in his early band Ibis!

Go for the live music or for some classic disco beats for a truly retro Liverpool night out on the town.

Rubber Soul

Where: Mathew Street

Smack bang in the middle of Liverpool’s iconic Mathew Street lies the legendary Rubber Soul.

Named after the 6th Beatles Album this Liverpool bar has a reputation of enticing you in with songs that simply make you dance.

Even the most steadfast wallflower will find themselves on the dancefloor before the end of the night.

It’s simply impossible not to bust a move to the tunes played inside Rubber Soul.


Where: Back Berry Street

Hidden in the back streets of Liverpool’s trendy Ropewalks area is MOJO.

Once you find this amazing night spot you’ll make sure it’s somewhere you visit every time you’re on a Liverpool night out.

The music played matches the ancient posters that adorn the walls with iconic and legendary superstars like The Doors, David Bowie, Kiss and Guns N Roses.

The very best bit of MOJO is that once you’ve found your stride you can hop up on the chairs and tables and perform for the audience below to the retro musical magic pouring from the speakers.

Remeniss Bar

The 90’s was a decade that some of us may care to forget but for others, it’s filled with our favourite girl and boy bands and Peter Andre’s Abs.

As you Remeniss about all your favourite parts of the 90’s the DJ will kindly pump out the best of the Spice Girls, Take That, Steps, East 17 and all those other delightfully memorable anthems that made the nineties special.

This combined with free shots and a great location and you’ve got the recipe for an unforgettable retro Liverpool night out on the town.
