Whether you’re looking for a sumptuous meal with your significant other or a wild night out on the town, Southport has plenty to offer. From themed bars and slick restaurants to late-night dance clubs and glamorous casinos, there is something to suit everyone in this bustling town. You’ll just need to remember your dancing shoes if you plan on staying out all night! Here is a roundup of some of the best pubs, clubs, bars, and restaurants that Southport has to offer.

The Beach Bar

As the name suggests, this bar is all about the beach! Situated on Waverley Street, the recently overhauled Beach Bar is one of the oldest and largest clubs in Southport. Boasting a new interior, the Beach Bar is perfect for a night out on the tiles with friends. This super popular late-night hangout is open until 6am on the weekends, making it a firm favourite with night owls. Playing a wide range of music, from house to RnB, the Beach House is a must-see for anyone looking to party all night while dreaming of sunny days on the beach.

Peaky Blinders Bar

If you’ve been watching the cult BBC drama series, then the Peaky Blinders Bar will be right up your street! This 1920s themed venue is decked out with Victorian-era wallpaper and light fittings and transports you straight to the set of the popular TV show. Located in the renovated Northern Quarter, this period bar can get super busy, especially at the weekend, so make sure you get there early if you’re hoping to get a table for you and your friends.

Le Grog

The clue to the theme of this bar is in the title. With plenty of nods to French culture and cuisine, Le Grog is the ideal place for enjoying boutique, hard-to-find drinks in a super friendly, cosy environment. Evoking the feeling of magical evenings spent in ornate Parisian bistros and lazy afternoons in sun-drenched cafes, Le Grog is undoubtedly one of the best-kept secrets in Southport. The brilliant music and stunning décor combine to make this bar a great place to start (or end) your night out.

Genting Casino

If you’re already dressed up for a night out on the town then you’re probably looking smart enough to head to Genting Casino. Genting Casino (formerly Mint Casino) is one of the best spots in town for great food and state-of-the-art casino technology. Sample some of the classic dishes in the restaurant before choosing from American Roulette, Blackjack, Three Card Poker and Electronic Roulette to round off your evening in style.

Office Bar and Restaurant

Slick modern décor combines with freshly prepared, locally sourced food to create the Office Bar and Restaurant. A hugely successful and popular place to go, the smart, stylish and very modern space is open until 1 am at the weekends with resident DJs spinning crowd-friendly mixes to keep everyone going. The restaurant is also famed for its classic menu served with a stylish twist, so start the night here with a beautifully prepared meal before hitting the dancefloor to work off those extra calories!


For those evenings when your feet just can’t stop head to Alpine, a late-night bar and club open until the very early hour of 4.30 am. The seriously cool alpine décor comes complete with lashings of pine furniture as well as an actual ski lift cabin, making partygoers feel as though they are enjoying an après-ski on the side of a mountain. The club regularly hosts a wide range of live music and guest DJs playing everything from indie anthems to minimal techno, so make sure you find out what’s on before you go.

So, whether you’re heading out for a quiet drink or you plan on staying up until the birds start singing, there are plenty of options to choose from in Southport! Now, where did you put those dancing shoes…
