Liverpool cocktail bar Berry & Rye is a prohibition-themed Scouse bar that has been put together with great attention to detail.
It is comfortable, relaxed, stylish and plush, so if you’re planning on visiting for a special occasion, do it.
The bartenders dress smart, are knowledgeable and have an envious stash of cocktail recipes stored in their minds.
It’s quite easy to walk past Berry & Rye, which is hidden on Berry Street in Liverpool, but once you find it, you’ll discover a bar filled with jazz, blues and more gin cocktails than you can shake a stick at.
To get in, knock on the door – which is unnamed – and you’ll be shown through by a doorman. There’s a restriction on the number of people allowed in, so don’t be too disheartened if you get turned away or are asked to wait. On that note, it might be a good idea to make a reservation.
You’ll find a dim, yet classy, environment awaits you when you enter the main bar area.
The menu is split into seven parts, including Bright & Floral, Herbal & Savoury and Sparkling Cocktails.
Drinks include the El Senador, made using Gran Patron Burdeos, Cocchi Americano, Grand Marnier 1880, Cuvee, grenadine and orange bitters.
Or you could go for a Luchador’s Inferno from the Spicy selection which is made using habanero-infused Sombra Mezcal, Drambuie and house orange bitters.
