Unique new bar and food venue announces opening date in prime Liverpool location

With a busy summer season still with plenty of life left in it, the ever-buzzing Hope Street area is playing host to a brand new bar and food venue by the name of Antisocial.

In a prime location opposite one of the city’s most “prestigious” hotels, and adjacent to the “legendary” Philharmonic Hall, this new place to socialise, relax and meet has a laid-back vibe with a “first-class service ethos”.

The name has a very specific meaning to the team behind Antisocial: it is an “all-embracing venue, whose role is to celebrate and welcome people from all walks of life”.

Creating a “safe space” is key to the venue’s aims, as well as enriching the area with live music, cultural celebrations and an eclectic and extensive bar menu. Its cocktail list includes Antisocial Signatures, a frozen section, a fizz menu, milkshakes and boozy shakes and creative alcohol-free options.

The team at Antisocial has also been busy launching its Antisocial Kitchen within the venue. It features a list of offerings with breakfast bagels and coffee in the morning, with free wi-fi, so that guests, from students, to friends, to business people, can enjoy a relaxed atmosphere to host casual meet-ups, to workspaces, to meetings.

The food menu during the day and evening will specialise in New York-style pizza, brought by the slice, half or whole 20-inch versions.

Will Wilkinson operations manager of Antisocial Bar, commented: “We have decided that the word ‘antisocial’ has been lost, and we want to turn negative connotations on their heads, in that we want to question what the norm is when it comes to who gets to enjoy a great bar, music venue and food service.

“Our aim is to create the ultimate safe space that caters to every type of personality type and demographic. Whether you enjoy your own company, but wish to do so in a welcoming place, or whether you love to be part of a group, we hope to celebrate and promote all types of socialising, offering a personal approach to deliver something for everyone.

“We know that people often feel disengaged from going out for all sorts of reasons, but here at Antisocial we want everyone who would like to call in to know that they can be exactly who they are with us.

“It goes without saying that our high standards will run right through our elevated and expressive bar menus, and our delicious food the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing morning, day or evening mood. We look forward to putting our own unique stamp on this already noted street, and our doors are open to every personality type.”
