A new Caribbean-inspired speakeasy just opened on Slater Street and we’re loving the concept. Manolo is a high-end, super-sleek spot with tropical island vibes in a five star setting.
It’s the perfect place to bring a date if you’re out to impress, with a luxury look and an upbeat atmosphere. You can choose from a variety of classic cocktails like the Manhattan or mai tai alongside Long Island iced teas and Bloody Marys.
If champagne’s more your thing then this place is perfect for you, offering a great selection of champagnes, wines and high end spirits. It’s the kind of place where a smartly-dressed waiter will come and take your order, with the aim of exceptional table service.
Fancy places can feel a bit stuffy, right? Not Manolo! Jazz, salsa and other genres popular in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean will play softly in the background, creating an upbeat, playful atmosphere in which you can still hear one another.
There are plenty of bar snacks to nibble on, but nothing too heavy. Think olives, pretzels and popcorn, which pair beautifully with a delicious cocktail. At Manolo, the focus is on providing a memorable and positive experience and Director Nick Thomas aims to impress:
“Manolo is bringing an entirely different offering to Liverpool. Inspired by the Caribbean, the venue offers a variety of exceptional cocktails that hark from the region, as well as reimagined classics with Manolo’s own take on the originals.
It’s probably best to book a table at Manolo before you go because it’s quite a small and intimate place, although you might be able to walk in and get a table if you’re lucky. It’s open from Thursday to Sunday, 6 pm – 1 am and you can expect attentive service throughout the night.
