The Bar

Expect a warm welcome as you descend the stairs and are transported to a tropical hideaway packed with rum, fun, cocktails and Tiki craziness a million miles from the gloomy streets of Manchester up above.

The Liars Club boasts a creative and exotic list of sharing cocktails served in elaborate Tiki volcanoes, pineapples and coconut shells all expertly designed by manager Lyndon Higginson to be enjoyed in the lighthearted, relaxed Tiki hideaway with its chilled soundtrack incorporating reggae, afrobeat and all in between.

Serving the North West’s most extensive collection of rum, the venue is the first in the city to offer merry-makers the chance to buy their own branded bottles of rum to mix how they see fit. In true Caribbean Rum Shop style The Liars Club we serve over 100 different rums, which are available in quarts, halves and full bottles.

The Liars Club is open Monday to Saturday from 5pm to 4am and Sundays from 5pm to 3am.


Great events all your round at The Liars Club… from run tasting to fancy dress quizzes and Hawaiian shirts you are guaranteed a right old knees up!

Introducing the Pipe & Slippers…

I can announces that we are closing down the Tiki Dive Bar and Caribbean Rum Shop after a year and a half of business to follow my new found passion and open a real ale pub.

In January there were rumours in the media suggesting we were looking to expand into the unit upstairs, previously inhabited by Starbucks.  We were then unable to confirm the details of the expansion as it took me a while to convince Ross and Jobe that this was the way to go but now we can reveal that the future for me is the Pipe and Slippers!

We had a great run, we’ve sold over 45k Zombies and to be honest I am tired of setting things on fire and partying all night.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not giving up drinking, I’m just looking forward to moving at a difference pace from now on.  Watch this space for the date of the first Ale Society…

The refurbishment will be lead by original designer Paul Astill and the doors to the Pipe and Slippers are planned to open in time for summer. #fuckrumdrinkbeer!
