Forgive me for these reviews, as I do some of these venues, regularly, and some of them not at all, and of course I'm sure other RAWKites will put me straight.
All around Cavern Walks. all within 250 yards.
Revolution. - Mix of ages from late teens to thirties (and sometimes older)
Remeniss - 90s bar. not been in recently, but always seems a bit empty.
Old Skool - Not been in it, but seems like an 80s style bar - stag/hen heaven
Smokie Mo's - Older music style - stag/hhen heaven
Hardy's - not been in
Glass Onion - not been in
Quarry Quarter - younger more funky style music, usually played at XXXX decibels and shared with the whole neighbourhood.
White Star - Traditional pub, good ale
Tube-80s bar - just what it says on the tin.
Flanigans Apple - Liverpool twist on a traditional Irish bar. Live band on downstairs playing a mix of all kinds, and usually a good piss up and sing song.
Grapes - Traditional pub, with a 4am licence. A hell of a knocking shop in the early hours with all kinds of gargoyles, up for a good time.
Lennon's bar - Downstairs bar with a mix of ages - mostly from mid 20s upwards
Erics - not been in since it reopened last month. Remarketing itself as a live music venue.
Flares - mix of all ages, playing older - stag/hen heaven
Cavern Pub - both Cavern's lean heavily on 60s/70s music, but not exclusively. Depending on when you're there, you also get on some great live bands in both venues.
Boogie Nights. - 70s-80s-90s music
Rubber Soul. - big open, mixed bar - not been in anytime recently other than watching football.
Moniques - Not 100% sure, but looks like a camp cabaret kind of joint. Being that it's on the edge of the gay quarter of town. - not been in there.
So as you can see, Mathew Street trades on the more 60s/70s/80s/90s/ style of music, but there's stilll some great nights to be had around there.
Also take into account. only 250 yard around the corner is Victoria Street, whith a host of more fashionalble clubs and bars......plus the gay quarter part of town....if thats what floats ya boat.
If you are up for a laugh, a good drinking sesh, a bit of dancing, and loose women, you really can't go wrong, as the Mathew St. area has a bit of everything, yet Just around the corner within 5mins walk , you have a whole host of more fashionable bars.
