One of Manchester’s much-loved tiki bars The Liars Club has announced today that it will close later this month. The late-night venue situated on Back Bridge Street, below pizza hotspot, Crazy Pedro’s, confirmed the news this afternoon and said that it will be closing for good at the end of December.
Over the past 12 years, the underground drinking den has become known for its tropical-inspired cocktails served in everything from pineapples to novelty props like barrels, coconut shells and volcanoes as well as their signature (and flaming) zombie cocktail. The cocktail bar is also known for its impressive rum collection and mainly reggae, afrobeat and hip hop music playlist.
Announcing the news today on social media, the bar said: “And so, we come with news that The Liars Club will be closing after twelve years of Tiki, as of the 31st December. She’s had one hell of an innings – hundreds of thousands of zombies, tonnes and tonnes of cinnamon and many a hangover inflicted.
“The team will be relocating to some of our favourite sister venues and the venue will still be available to hire for private occasions as the best party spot in the land. Come and join us for a zombie, or two, over the next couple of weeks and one hell of a NYE party at the end of it to send her off in style. Thanks for everything – Team Liars 🍍”
The bar is run by hospitality operators The Liars Group who run bars and restaurants in Manchester including pizza parlours Crazy Pedro’s and Northern Quarter bar, Cane & Grain. The Liars Group portfolio also includes Northern Quarter drinking spots, Science and Industry bar and The Bay Horse Tavern, both on Thomas Street, amongst others.
All the Liars Club team are being relocated to sites within the group and employment remains guaranteed. The venue is set to remain as a private hire space teaming up with Crazy Pedro’s above to deliver events. The Liars Group commented saying that they will be “looking into the development of new concepts for the group” at some point in the near future with the site in 2024.
The Liars Club will close on December 31 and can be found at 19A Back Bridge St, Manchester, M3 2PB.
