Five of the best small music venues in Liverpool

Activities, Local Info

Liverpool is a city which has a great musical history.

Some of the biggest acts in the world have played at various venues across the city.

Even now some of the smaller venues continue to attract some of the brightest upcoming talents.

Whilst as a student you may not be able to afford to go to every big gig, why not try out a small venues?

With easy travel links from Ormskirk station, Liverpool is only half an hour away so go and experience what they have to offer.

Here is five of the best small music venues:


Jimmys is one of the newest music venues on the scene. Opening back in August, it made its mark with a superb first weekend.

With the likes of the Coral, the Real People and the Blinders having already taken to the stage, plenty more strong acts should follow.

As well as live music the venue also hosts other events as well as having its own craft beer.

Phase one:

A record store by day- and a music venue by night, Phase One is a great addition to the city.

Some big acts, including Peter Doherty and Circa Waves have both made appearances for album signings and instore sessions.

As well as that, a range of upcoming local acts have also appeared, with the venue being a great place to play.

Arts club:

The Arts club is one of the key venues on any band’s musical ladder.

With a stage down stairs, and one upstairs, it has a certain charm to it.

Some excellent acts have taken to the stage throughout the years, and it continues to be one of the leading venues in the city.


Located in the basement of Heebie Jeebies, EBGBS is an excellent place to go.

With a intimate feeling, the narrow room can set up a great atmosphere for any band willing to take the chance.

Whilst it may be compact, that does not mean a big sound can not be created, with music bouncing off the wall.

The Cavern:

How could you not go? The Cavern is the club where the Beatles made their name on the Merseybeat scene, and the modern day equivalent provides some of that magic.

With acts on throughout the day and night, it’s a great place to go to listen to some of the best ever songs written.

With all of its history, the Cavern still remains one of the top music spots in the city.

Hi, I’m Amos and I’m a third year sociology and politics student at Edge Hill University. I am a big sports and music fan, and spend most of my time writing about both subjects, either reporting on a match or reviewing a gig. After uni I hope to become a qualified journalist and continue doing more of the same. When I’m not writing, I am either just relaxing or going out. Hopefully you’ll enjoy reading my blogs as much as I enjoy writing them X.
