Liverpool is built of resilience and an unwavering drive to make the best of any situation. Sure, we could be talking about the football club, but we really mean Liverpool hookups. We go out in this city to drink beer and meet sexy strangers. When one bar doesn’t deliver, we find another. Thankfully, this city has plenty.
While options are generally a good thing, they can be a bother on a night out. How do you know where the talent is? We like pubs as much as the next guy, but decent Liverpool hookup bars can be few and far between. It’s a similar problem with the Liverpool hookup sites and apps. There are a lot to choose from, but few that are worth your time. Even if you’re mixing it up at the University of Liverpool or Hope University, the well can dry up.
From Woolton to Wood Street, the problem is the same. With nearly 500,000 people in this city, it can still sometimes feel like you’re out in Accrington. That doesn’t have to be the case, though. After considerable research, we’ve compiled a list of the Liverpool hookup sites, apps and bars that actually work. With this information in your back pocket, you’ll never walk alone.
Give your social life a boost by reading our list. Then comment below to let us know if there’s anything we might have missed.
If the only thing you’re having in bed in the morning is a bacon butty, you need our help. Read on for the best Liverpool hookup apps, sites and bars.
Head over to Chavesse Park and you’ll find that a little slice of Thailand has set up shop. The Thaikhun Street Bar is a brightly lit, Thai-themed bar with drinks and décor that evoke eastern Asia. We know you might be sceptical; theme bars tend to be garish nightmares full of tourists. If you’re in the mood for a Liverpool hookup, though, take the risk.
With its exotic cocktails, and a menu of classic bar fare and Asian-inspired dishes, Thaikhun stays busy. It’s the kind of place where tourists and locals rub elbows while the bartenders keep everyone happy. When looking for casual hookups, you couldn’t ask for a more enticing setting than this Thai-inspired oasis.
This hookup site is very popular and only getting stronger. Even with apps aplenty, there seems to be a new website popping up every week. Of course, just like so many local bars, most of these sites are doomed to a small audience. That’s probably because the perfect hookup site already exists. Every other Liverpool hookup site wishes it were as good as Adult FriendFinder.
Boasting over 90 million active users worldwide, AFF regularly tops our annual best hookup apps and sites list. This site began in the 90s, though it really grew into its best self in the mid-00s. Since then, it’s been the most reliable and popular site of its kind across the planet. Even though it isn’t an app, it has an excellent browser experience for the phone and computer. We especially appreciate its comprehensive search function with options like cup size, location and kink.
What really sets AFF apart is that it’s not trying to be all things to all people. It’s a hookup site and nothing more, so you know what everyone is looking for. It’s also got the most diverse user base of any site. If you’re well into your 30s and have found other apps and sites frustrating, AFF is especially great. There are plenty of people your age or older looking for one-night stands and drama-less hookups.
Don’t even worry if you aren’t the hottest person on the site. Adult FriendFinder’s huge user base ensures there’s someone for everyone on there. You’ll quickly discover why most users would choose AFF if they could only use one site or app.
We’re always looking for the most active scenes in the city. Sometimes we avoid the crowds, but when we’re feeling peckish for a bedroom romp, the busier the bar, the better. Over on Castle Street, you’ll find Neighbourhood, one of Liverpool’s hippest cocktail lounges and dance clubs. You’re never alone here.
This “New York-inspired” bar brings a stateside sensibility to its opulent cocktails and late-night entertainment. Open until two in the morning on Thursdays and Fridays, and three on Saturdays, Neighbourhood always brings the party. Of all the Liverpool hookup bars, few could claim to draw this many hotties. Come out and heat up your social life.
As Liverpool has become a more cosmopolitan city, the level of talent has risen considerably. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the number of attractive older birds. Or, as the Yanks might say, our cougars are hot as hell. The best way to make a connection is with the US-based hookup app, Cougar Life.
Designed for the purpose of helping younger guys meet sexy older women, Cougar Life has blown up in recent years. Its seven+ million users are incredibly loyal and help give the app the best track record of any similar app. In our yearly review of the top cougar apps and sites, Cougar Life regularly scores above the rest.
While this app helps guys meet women 35 and up, it’s not just for the young lads. Men of all ages are on here meeting women who are sexually experienced and adventurous. It’s an incredibly convenient tool for arranging a hookup tonight, and you’ll be alerted whenever someone spies your profile.
For women, the benefits of Cougar Life are obvious. Instead of waiting in bars all night hoping to be hit on, you can just find Liverpool hookups online. It doesn’t risk a humiliating public rejection. Plus, with the social stigma around older women pursuing younger guys, Cougar Life is incredibly freeing. It’s all upsides for this app’s female users, which is why there are so many.
If you’re hesitating to get this app, is it because you’re intimidated by older women? Lots of guys are, so you aren’t alone. It’s for that very reason that we created a course on dating women over 30. It’ll boost your confidence and prepare you for an older lover. You’ll immediately see why Cougar Life is a massive hit in cities all over the UK.
The brewery beer garden has started to replace the pub for the ideal neighbourhood meeting spot. With its ample space, natural light and a wide selection of brews, people tend to spend all day there. As an alternative to the usual Liverpool hookup bars, the brewery also draws a broader crowd thought it might not be the absolute best option to find sex now. Even the casual drinker enjoys a Saturday afternoon in a beer garden.
For our money, Love Lane Brewery in the Baltic Triangle is the best beer garden in the city. While beer gardens are usually outdoor establishments, this indoor brewery makes its indoor space work wonders. Large skylights give the brewery a warm ambiance, while the long tables make it a perfect gathering spot. Rain or shine (or rain again), Love Lane Brewery is consistently bustling with activity.
Though it’s only been around since 2016, Jenever Gin Bar feels like it should be part of Liverpool history. With its understated look and impressive collection of 120 gins, this is the bar for experienced drinkers. Located on Hope Street, there is no better place to enjoy a G&T over an intimate tête-à-tête.
This is a bar that appeals to an older crowd, so don’t be surprised to find some sexy cougars about. If you don’t want to come alone, consider meeting someone on Cougar Life and recommending this place as a meetup. However you work it, you’re sure to add Jenever to your rotation of Liverpool hookup bars.
If you have an insatiable lust, a few bars and apps are never enough. Keep your Liverpool hookups coming with a few more of the best options in the city.
Every major city across the UK is home to The Alchemist. This chain of cocktail bars has the serious pretension of turning the science of mixology into an art. Or is it the other way around? The point is, this is one of those bars where the bartenders all look like they studied liquor at uni. Sometimes it can feel like it’s trying too hard.
Yet, it genuinely is one of the best cocktail bars in the city, especially if you like drinks with style. The bartenders know what they’re doing and that precision is matched in the kitchen. With leather seating throughout and its financial district location, this Brunswick Street bar will impress any date or casual companion. What more could you want?
Tinder hasn’t been around all that long compared to some of the other apps out there. It launched in 2012 and immediately became a global phenomenon. Soon, it cemented its reputation as the go-to app for hookups (though the makers now want to focus on dating). It wasn’t long before every Millennial you knew wouldn’t shut up about it.
Just under a decade later, Tinder remains a big name for Liverpool hookups. It’s hard to deny it works, though your mileage may vary. For a lot of people, this app is more frustrating than fun. For others, what once was a reliable tool has become useless. The reason an app with such massive name recognition can be so disappointing to some users is quite simple. Though Tinder is theoretically a general hookup app, it’s really a niche one. That niche: hot and young.
Only the guys in the top 10-15% of looks get much attention on Tinder. For the women, that’s more like the top 50%. Either way, if your pictures aren’t immediately eye-catching, you’re going to get ignored. The app’s shallowness is both its worst and best facet. Age is also a big factor. The ideal age range is 18 to 28. Much older than that and you’d be better off moving on to another app (there’s always Adult FriendFinder).
There’s another reason Tinder can be frustrating. While there are tons of sexy bints on the app, the absolute stunners rarely reply. The overwhelming wave of matches and messages is enough of an ego boost. They don’t even bother with the hookups. All that said, if you’re hot enough and in the mood for a quickie, Tinder won’t disappoint.
The coffee house has long been the alternative of choice to the pub. You can still enjoy a casual drink and catch up with friends and acquaintances, minus the booze. Whether you’re detoxing, overcoming a hangover or just looking for a change of pace, a coffee shop can be perfect. It may also be your new favourite place to seek out attractive singles.
The laid-back charms of Rococo on Lord Street are exactly what we’re talking about. With its array of sofas and armchairs, this two-storey coffee house is ideal for intimate conversation. The food is decent too, if you’re looking for a lunch date. Even if you’re just there for the espresso, Rococo has the potential to be your go-to café for Liverpool hookups.
Bars, beer gardens and even coffee houses are the obvious places to meet people. They’re set up for conversation and mingling. Alcohol and caffeine are natural social lubricants. And they’re where single people go to get laid because they know other single people go for the same reason. That’s all well and good, but what if we said the supermarket is just as good?
Hear us out. When the bar scene has gotten a little too routine for you, consider hitting up your local Tesco. In those aisles walk every type of person in Liverpool, including a bevy of attractive single ladies. There’s no need to be a creep; just start up a casual conversation. Play your cards right and your beer run could turn into something far more active.
Cocktail lounges and dance clubs will always be the obvious spots for Liverpool hookups. Yet, they hardly hold a monopoly on wild nights out. A good pub can hold its own against any cocktail bar, and one of our favourites is the Pump House. Situated on the water and built into a former Victorian pump house (hence the name), this pub gets it all right.
Pump House offers a mix of classic English grub with a wide selection of beers and other alcoholic options. Its all-wood interior makes the pub feel like your neighbourhood local, and the crowds are just as friendly. It might not draw in the high-rolling crowds of a cocktail lounge, but the Pump House will get you laid. Again, hence its name.
