Regular unsigned indie talent with a selection of electric club nights over the weekend. Quality venue. highly recommended. You can more than likely catch a band playing at the Zanzibar most nights of the week, great platform for Liverpool's upcoming stars. Also with a regular up to date gig listing on their website, popular student and music loving hotspot.
Personally, I think this is one of the best alternative music venues in Liverpool. Zanzibar Club - its all about the music! In a band, hoping to get some gig time? It might be worth contacting these guys and see if you can get a mid-week slot. Check the website for contact details.
