Whisky tasting sessions will be held on-site with special ‘whisky lockers’ for those who want to buy whole bottles.

Whisky & Water’s bar was built from the original reception desk from the historic White Star Line ‘streaky bacon’ building on the Liverpool waterfront. The venue will also host live blues and jazz music.

The bar also features two secret rooms. The first, accessed through a hidden entrance, promises to transport guests back to the Prohibition era with classic cocktails and a 1920s Speakeasy ambience. The second is a basement jazz bar for ticketed jazz events and live music.

Whisky & Water is open Wednesday to Sunday from 5pm until midnight.
