The Georgian Quarter is an area full of elegant terraced town houses, only a couple of minutes walk from the city centre and the famous Baltic Triangle. A hotspot for television companies filming everything from Hollywood blockbusters to TV dramas against the backdrop of the buildings, it’s home to some of Liverpool’s finest restaurants and Liverpool’s two cathedrals which dominate the city’s skyline from miles around.
There’s plenty to see and do around this area. If you’re into good food, great pubs and you’re a bit of a culture vulture – the Georgian Quarter is perfect for you.
The Georgian Quarter boasts some pretty amazing pubs, and The Belvedere is no exception. It’s known for it’s great gins and wide selection of beers – as well as being one of Liverpool’s smallest boozers! It’s hidden away on a little cul-de-sac called Sugnall Street so it’s not the easiest to find but get on your Google maps and you’ll be there in no time.
Located on Back Egerton Street, this pub is an absolute favourite for tourists, students and locals alike. Expect eclectic and eccentric decor, resulting in one of the most intriguing pubs in Liverpool. Amongst the array of knick knacks and historical photographs are a row of urns containing the ashes of generations who’ve selected Kavanagh’s as their final resting place. Yes, it’s that good! They do a great pub quiz, too.
Full of spirit, The Grapes is one of the oldest pubs and buildings in Liverpool. Made in the 1700’s, this spot still remains one of the most popular haunts. The 200 year old pub has become a favourite amongst the Bohemians of Liverpool, so expect to see artists, musicians and academics in here. It’s a great choice for a late night pint, with the fun coming to an end at 1am Sunday to Wednesday and until 2am Thursday through ’til Saturday.
From laid back yummy breakfasts, bowls of amazing home made pasta, freshly made pizza to homemade cakes and sandwiches for afternoon tea, the Quarter has something for everyone. It’s one of the most popular spots in the area, with fantastic Cathedral views drawing tourists and locals in from all over the city. It’s not the most student budget friendly, but we definitely recommend it for a special birthday treat or even a graduation meal with the family!
Hidden at the top of Hardman Street, Buyers Club is a great place for a drink and a bite to eat. They also host gigs upstairs, as well as putting on casual live music down in the bar. With a wide array of small plates and some amazing deli boards, it’s a great option for some fancier, more civilised pre-drinks.
Free State Kitchen
Trust us, the burgers here are not to be missed. It’s a low-key diner with a cozy interior and beautiful outdoor area, serving a contemporary twist on American classics. You can even grab a main, fries, side and soft drink at FSK for a tenner when you’ve got a valid student card. What’s not to love?!
You can also enjoy all the cultural offerings the Everyman Theatre and Liverpool Philharmonic Hall have to offer, or even experience Shiverpool’s ghost walk along Hope Street – perfect for when you want to avoid a heavy night out on Halloween!
