New 1920s themed bar Hummingbird to open in Liverpool city centre

By Jess Flaherty

A new bar is opening on North John Street in Liverpool city centre later this month.

Hummingbird aims to be one of Liverpool’s most decadent bars, taking inspiration from the art deco era and offering a beautiful space to escape the everyday, according to its owners.

The venue will serve hand-crafted cocktails and a range of bar snacks.

Hummingbird is owned and operated by Phil Haughton who also owns McGuffie & Co on Castle Street.

The bar has been over a year in the planning and now restrictions have lifted following the government's roadmap out of lockdown, Phil and his team are looking forward to opening.

Phil said: "Hummingbird is something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time now and things were just coming together when Covid-19 hit, which obviously put a massive spanner in the works for everyone.

"As hard as it was, lockdown gave us the opportunity to take a step back and reassess how a bar will need to operate moving forward and we were able to put some positive changes in place.

"I’m really excited about the future now and feel that now is a great time to open. I think people have really missed being able to socialise and we want to offer our guests the perfect place to get together, forget all their worries and just relax with great drinks and great company."

Based in the heart of the commercial district, the team behind the bar have paid attention to every detail in an effort to offer guests an intimate and authentic experience.

By day, the bar aims to offer a sanctuary for those looking to relax and get away from it all. By night, the bar will introduce a cocktail lounge feel, intending to evoke the spirit of the roaring 20s.

Guests can indulge in an eclectic drinks menu of wines, Champagnes, beers and spirits as well as a cocktail menu of classics and some unique Hummingbird twists. Sam Hudson, who has been running the bar at McGuffie’s for the past five years, will be heading the new team up at Hummingbird.

With live music at weekends in the form of DJs and live acts playing upbeat vintage tunes, Hummingbird will be a welcome addition to the exciting bar scene in Liverpool.

Hummingbird will be open from Monday, September 27.
