Berry and Rye
There’s no signage for Berry and Rye, just a slightly battered, nondescript black door that wouldn’t catch the eye if it weren’t for the snaking queue awaiting entry outside. This is arguably Liverpool’s best bar, a speakeasy-style haunt where jazz and blues notes filter through a warm, candlelit gloom. Prohibition is taken seriously – menus, packed with gin and whiskey concoctions, arrive hidden away in bibles, there’s a resident pianist on hand and the cocktails arrive suitable strong, with a complexity not matched anywhere else in the city.
