Alma de Cuba

Situated in a converted Catholic church that has been standing since 1788, Alma de Cuba is a rare gem in the heart of Liverpool’s Ropewalks district. Not only is Alma de Cuba a stunning restaurant with some of the finest Cuban-inspired dishes this side of the water, by night this unique venue plays host to live music, DJs and carnival atmosphere-style club nights.

Bongo’s Bingo

Your initial instincts are half-right. Yes, this is the classic game your gran loves to play, but it’s probably best to leave her at home on this occasion. Now a nationwide phenomenon, Bongo’s Bingo is a twisted version of the classic game best found in halls up and down the country – but think rave intervals, hilarious dance-offs, and top it all off with a bunch of prizes given away. Held at the aforementioned Camp & Furnace, head down there to witness the fun and chaos for yourself.
