Bar Re-Launch: The Liars Club, Manchester

How many of us, tonight especially, will go out for ‘just one drink’?

Meeting the lads after work, going with the girls for a bottle of Prosecco, a bunch of work colleagues hitting the pub, we’ll all text or call our other halves and tell them, ‘we’re just going out for a quick one’.

Several hours later, you’re getting texts from your fella, or your lady, wondering where in hell you are, have you fallen under a bus or something, and you’re merrily on your fifth pint, telling Jo why your boss is such an idiot, while said boss is chatting up some more lad at the bar.

Close enough?

And then, if it’s a really late one, the suggestion will be made. Liars Club.

And our favourite late night Tiki bar has had a bit of a makeover – more seating, new wall art and best of all, new cocktail menu.

There are the classics on there still, so don’t worry, you can still get your Zombie and the all important Grog, but there are some more pretties to tempt you now.

Juice Springsteen with with El Dorado Blanco, cassis and lime, the classic Ray’s Mistake with El Dorado 3 year old rum, Bombay Sapphire gin, pineapple, guava and coconut – proving that gin too is Tiki As Fuck.

If you have a big sweet tooth, you might fancy the new Cococabana with Bacardi Carta Blanca, Pisang Ambon, guava, coconut and lime, for one boozy tropical fruit milkshake style cocktail.

Plus it looks damn pretty served in a coconut. I even spotted a pretty one in a bucket with sweets on top – just in case you’re a bit peckish.

Though if straight is more your scene, a spour of the Duppy Share, Chairman’s Reserve or Appleton Estate Rum will go down smoothly.

Of course, if you’re more than peckish, there’s always Crazy Pedro’s for a pizza, open til 4am. I mean taking a pizza home for your loved one is bound to make everything better, right? It’s a present. They can always eat it for breakfast.

And I’ll see you there at some point, because that ‘just one drink’ makes liars of us all.
