Liverpool also has other entertainment venues great for a night out for those who do not want anything too boozy. Here are some other activities that can be enjoyed in the city:
There is a great selection of casinos in Liverpool, the Grosvenor Casino Leo is situated on the Queen’s Docks in a beautiful river side setting. The casino is open 24/7 and has a comprehensive selection of games, such as roulette, poker and blackjack.
Casinos are an increasingly popular form of entertainment both offline and online. Something that makes online casinos more popular in the UK is the various online promotional offers available to players. Despite this, many players do still enjoy heading out to a land-based casino for the evening. If out for a special evening in Liverpool, a trip to Grosvenor Casino will be a glamorous and exciting experience.
You can dine in with the A La Carte menu before making your way to the gaming floor and test your luck at the casino tables.
Junkyard Golf Club
If you want an activity that will keep you on your feet, playing a round or two of golf at the Junkyard Golf Club is a great idea for an evening out with friends. Junkyard is a popular crazy golf course with some very creative themes.
There is a course set on a car scrapyard, another that is themed around a twisted circus and one decorated as an exotic rainforest. Pricing begins at £10 per player during peak times and it is recommended that you book in advance.
While crazy golf was once something that was played on occasion, due to growing demand more themed venues are popping up in city centre locations with bars and eateries and later opening times. Junkyard Golf is a great example of how this type of venue can succeed in the vibrant night-time economy market.
Lastly, one other alternative evening experience to try out in Liverpool is an escape room. The Escape Hunt is ideally located for tourists at the Albert Docks and offers a number of different themed challenges.
The choice of rooms include Alice in Puzzleland, The Fourth Samurai, The Last Vikings and Escape the Wild West. You and your team will have one hour to crack a number of puzzles and brain teasers in order to complete your mission and escape.
