The Shipping Forecast


SquareMeal Review of The Shipping Forecast

Slater Street is weekend party central for Liverpool’s drinking classes, with The Shipping Forecast set fair as an essential port of call on the thoroughfare’s bar-hopping trail. Exposed brickwork, freaky posters, metallic pillars and leather sofas provide the shabby-chic backdrop, with alcoves for laptop geeks or courting couples. Alcohol comes from British cask ales and world beers such as Blue Moon, plus a regulation list of wines and funky cocktails, while food (from Ruby Jean’s Diner) brings ‘boutique burgers’, ‘famous fried chicken’, all-day breakfasts, salads and Sunday roasts. Following a refurb, the venue now has a snazzy new ‘top deck’ with a fully stocked bar and a banquet-style table fashioned from cargo crates. Laser-sharp live music, DJs, comedy acts and cabaret are the crowd-pullers, although vintage markets and quizzes also attract an audience – so it’s not all about Saturday night.
