If you like your bars to have retro style, a friendly atmosphere and individuality along with live music and great prices then look no further than Liverpool’s trendy Magnet bar.
The Magnet is at the top of Hardman Street, a five-minute walk from Bold Street's popular clubs and barsand Liverpool Central train station.
It's relatively tucked away and its red decor and equally snazzy, lengthy bar surrounded by deep reds and mood lighting creates a chilled-out 70s vibe.
Live bands play near enough every night, along with DJs mixing indie, funk, soul, hip hop and classic rock until the early hours. And it attracts some top names such as Norman Jay, Louie Vega and Mr Scruff.
The Magnet is popular with students and young professionals. It's been going for 50 years and despite its trendy reputation everyone is welcome. In fact the bar staff are not only welcoming but they also make you laugh rather than just serving you a pint.
Doormen are usually a problem for many people but at The Magnet they are equally as pleasant as the bar staff. The mood is relaxed with a hint of individual, indie chic.
The bar is fully stocked, and beer extends from Corona to Budweiser to Polish beer. Both bottles and draught are available.
A pint costs around £1.50 and bottles £1.80. The wine list includes Pinot Grigio Trentino at £10.90 and Barocco 2001 Rosso del Salento at £10.75 as well as the old favourites such as Blossom Hill.
There are also special nights promoting Jagerbombs at just £1 each, very popular with the students.
The Last Word
For some bohemian bar lounging, away from Liverpool's typical nightscene, head to The Magnet which is filled with good people and good sounds.
