As of this writing, the top 10 bars and pubs in Liverpool are:
10. Ghetto Golf
Based in the old Cains Brewery building, Ghetto Golf is a fun and vibrant venue that allows visitors to play mini golf while being served drinks on the indoor course.
The venue sells a wide range of cocktails and food and is nestled in the booming Baltic Triangle.
It opened in 2016 and quickly established itself as a fun and quirky place with graffiti, “abandoned” vans and buses, and even a tombstone for The S*n with a shovel leaning on it. There are plenty of photo opportunities around the space and it’s often busy with large groups of friends.
