Bit of a different post from me today, and something I’m super excited to be sharing. If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I’m a Liverpool gal through and through! I’m so proud to be from one of the best cities in the UK, you could even say patriotic.
Liverpool has a plethora of bars and restaurants throughout the city and the suburbs, but, as far as I’m aware, has never had a Belgian bar…up until now that is.
I introduce you to Belgica, the newest addition to Liverpool’s nightlife! Situated on the heart of Wood Street, next to FACT Cinema, Belgica is worth it for the vibes alone, not just for their drinks. I was lucky enough to be invited to their launch party, ahead of their grand opening. The venue is split across two levels, with a relaxed Brussels beer bar atmosphere upstairs and a medieval Bruges vibe club downstairs called the ‘Monastery of Sound’, Belgica will transport visitors to the beer-loving nation from which the venue takes its inspiration.
The launch party was filled with laughter, drunken dancing, tasty food and speciality drinks, making for a party centric, yet mellow atmosphere. If you’re looking for somewhere to have an enjoyable, and lively night out, then Beligica will tick all of the boxes.
From mid-December, the full food menu will be available. Including luscious Steak Frites, delectable Ham and Gouda Croquettes, and not to mention, heavenly Belgian Waffles for dessert. We were served some sample dishes at the event, including a Beef Burger, Anti Pasti platter, the Croquettes and a delightful Biscoff Waffle. My taste buds were overwhelmed by the exquisite food and I was left wanting more.
Belgica has a wide range of Belgian Beers, including some scouse classics from Love Lane Brewery. Not into Beer? Fear not, there are plenty of cocktails, wine and spirts on the menu. The drinks are slightly more expensive than other places in Liverpool, but it’s unlikely you’ll such wide selection of Belgian beers under one roof, in another part of the city.
On the night, the staff were very attentive and helpful and not too shy to have a conversation at the bar with. Service was relatively quick and drinks were always flowing. Having spoken with other Liverpool Bloggers following the event, everyone was buzzing and are already planning their next visit, myself included!
I hope my review has convinced you to visit Belgica on your next visit into the city centre. I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed and will have an evening to remember.
Until Another Day x
