Ink bar opened early August 2015 replacing Liverpool's Igloo bar as the first tattoo bar in the city, serving up cocktails with delightful artwork scatter around making this venue a unique and welcoming visit.
We do say 'Urban bar' though Liverpool's Ink bar has an experience for all tastes in music, playing a mixture of House, RnB and old school Hip Hop(depending what night, and time you visit), locating at the top of Wood Street, St Peter's Square area right next to Seel Street.
In short. What you can expect at Liverpool's Ink Bar: Shisha on the terrace, cocktails, vip tables(minimum spend applies), house, rnb, hip hop with all sorts of crazy ink events taking place — perfect venue to experience the nightlife in Liverpool.
Ink bar is open till 4am every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night — One of the buzzing venues to visit for a Sunday night out in Liverpool — House music delight!
Have to say, I haven't been in here since it was Igloo (not the best of days) me and a few friends gave it a go at the weekend and have to say, it's NOTHING like Igloo used to be!!
Had a great night, loved the atmosphere, music was great, drank many many cocktails! Great time!
Love the venue and the atmosphere. Really stylish wall art and nice people. We came here after sampling the nearby bars. We were a little disappointed by the type of people we encountered as the area had been sold to us as a very high end area. Instead all the nearby bars were full of hen and stag groups acting silly and it was really off putting.
Finally we wandered past ink and after a short time queuing up and what felt like twenty questions off the door men we were in. This was our last chance in the area and it saved the day. There were no stag or hens in the venue or at least none wearing the tacky paraphernalia (the security informed us this is policy). the music was a good mix of new and old RnB and later on some house music.
We really enjoyed the place and its located right by the taxi ranks and fast food outlets for the end of the night!
We will be back Ink xxx
Great venue, just the security is VERY firm so I suggest not upsetting the door staff and enjoy your night, once you get inside its ok. Music was top! Located in a great location with the main clubs and bars just nearby.
Myself, a few friends and my cousin ventured down on Saturday and had a great night. Really well looked after in the private booth / VIP table he hired for us. Friendly staff and good music until late (mostly RnB with some house music).
Great for fans of RnB & Hip Hop.
Superb venue, sharp service, top atmosphere and a great place to go if you want to avoid the trashy and tacky hen parties that are now taking over the area.
A mix of RnB and house music, with nice cocktails that are not very expensive and we enjoyed the table service with our drinks coming out on a formula one car!
My group of friends (review below) were encouraged to enter the bar by a promoter on the street who promised us a booth to sit in. When inside we asked where this was and sat where we were shown. Not long after a woman claiming to be the manager came up to us and screamed and shouted in my face.
There had obviously been some miscommunication between the staff and the booth had been double booked. This woman gave me no chance to explain and was so aggressive and rude. When I asked to speak to the manager, she took great offense to this, claiming that we thought she could could not be the manager because of her face tattoos. In reality I thought she could not be the manager as I have never been spoken to so rudely even by drunks on the street never mind a person in the service industry.
Where to begin? After a long walk heading towards Red Door we were waiting for the 'Hen' of our party to join us when we were approached by an enthusiastic PR worker from Ink Bar who said that her manager had asked her to come & find a large group preferably hen party or birthday celebration to come and have a VIP booth with free drinks as they wanted it filling. Although originally debating the offer we decided to give it a go!
We headed over to the bar with our PR friend who was full of the joys about how much of a great night we were going to have! We then went to the bar, our new friend in tow! Was a bit chavvy but we thought what the hell? All 21 of us bought a drink and received either a shot or Bellini free.
We were given wristbands which we were told were for VIP access to 'our' booth and were directed to the first floor to sit, we were let in by another girl who worked there, we sat down and began to relax.
Shortly after this we were approached by an extremely aggressive woman who, in a manner so rude we were all taken aback and shocked, told us to leave as these booths were all reserved. Obviously confused we asked why we had been told by the PR woman that this is where we were to go? To which she aggressively replied that she was the manager and she was telling us to leave! We tried to explain what had happened outside but the lady was intent on us leaving and promptly called security over. This is where I need to explain that we were a group of females aged between 25-50 who had just started our night so were in no way causing a riot, we had simply asked for an explanation as to why we had quite clearly been lied to?
We proceeded to leave after finishing our drinks as we had spent over £100 on our drinks, on leaving we saw the PR girl laughing with a man about what happened inside so this is clearly an ongoing scam to get people in. Thankfully it didn't spoil our night as the bar we continued onto were outstanding!
For a place that accepts the 'alternative' ie heavily tattooed, should also be considerate about dresscode, however apparently new rock boots were the subject for declining entry. Apparently ink bar won't let you review their page directly, which is slightly suspicious. If the dress code is that stringent, why were the casual wear allowed in? We only had a pint beforehand so were neither disrespectful or rude too the doorstaff.
My favourite bar on St Peter's square. Love it! Always playing a great mixture of sounds with great atmosphere in great location. Perfect!
