The best cocktail bars near Liverpool Street

Liverpool Street is many things. Home to markets and skyscrapers aplenty, the London Stock Exchange (if you’re feeling generous) and of course, the train station.

It’s also the hub for many a cocktail bar, where weary travellers (and margarita-thirsty Londoners) rest their feet and debit cards. Don’t underestimate it, there’s more to the area than just being a resting stop. Swing by, and see for yourself.

Walk past the shiny skyscrapers, find your way through the busy market and let us show you some of the best cocktail bars around. First round is on us.

How to hire a cocktail bar near Liverpool Street

We know that finding a venue the old-fashioned way (where you trawl the internet, contact 10 venues or set your heart on one, only to find that they're out of your price range and not even available on your dates) is a pain, and there are a few pitfalls between you and booking your perfect cocktail bar. Getting the venue-finding process down to a professional art is what we’ve made our mission ever since we took on the events industry. We often get asked the same questions, so here's what we recommend to quickly and easily hire a space near Liverpool Street.

For cocktail bars near Liverpool Street, you're spoilt for choice. Here are a few extra special ones that we vouch for:

Be At One – Stop by this trusty cocktail bar for an after-shop drink or two.

The Botanist – For quirky interiors, great cocktails and groovy DJ nights, head to The Botanist Broadgate.

There really is no one answer to this question: so many variables come into play when understanding the cost of exclusive hire of a cocktail bar or a private space in a cocktail bar. How many guests are you planning for? Is the venue for the day, an afternoon, or the night? The good news is that you can find a venue for pretty much any budget (okay, almost any budget). Instead of letting the venue dictate the price, our advice is to be proactive and set a budget that you feel comfortable with – this way the right venues can reach out to you through HeadBox.

There are lots of ways to book a Liverpool Street cocktail bar. You can do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone, or email the venue directly. Unfortunately, lots of venues are busy and may not get back to you in time. That's where we come in. Give us your enquiry and we'll reach out to the best cocktail bars near Liverpool Street and let you enjoy your free time. Easy.
