1 – Play the Juke Box at Coyote Ugly

Brand new, Bold Street venue, Coyote Ugly, will be open all day on Christmas Eve, with shenanigans continuing right through until 3am Christmas morning! The famous Coyote Ugly dancing girls will provide entertainment all evening and customers are encouraged to join them on the table tops to dance the night away.

2 – Can’t sleep? Head to Insomnia at 24 Kitchen Street

After the success of last year, 24 Kitchen Street is hosting Insomnia on Christmas Eve, hailed as the best underground dance event at the Baltic Triangle.

This year’s Liverpool Christmas Ice Festival down on our Pier Head is the biggest and best yet, with something for absolutely every member of the family.

Pop Up Food & Drink stalls give you plenty to browse and, after all that, the whole gang can glide on the ice (or hold on to the sides for 45 minutes). Head down during the day, or the evening and book your tickets here.

4 – Raise a glass to the 1920’s at the Peaky Blinders Bar
