Purveyors of fine music since 1964. The Magnet is back! After nearly 2 years away and under new management - a Liverpool institution returns. Currently open Friday and Saturday nights with a full program of entertainment 7 nights a week coming in September. Expect live music from up and coming as well as established acts and the city's best DJ's to keep you moving until the small hours of the night. In keeping with the venue's origins as Liverpool's roots music Mecca expect a soundtrack of Northern Soul, Disco and Funk with a modern twist. Our favorite drinking hole, second home and all round social hub of the city is closed no more, so come on down and take your place at the bar. Magnet is a bar, venue and nightclub with the emphasis on music, serving good liquor and entertainment until as late as is no good for you!

Have just spent a fantastic afternoon in the basement of The Magnet with the re-opening of the Sink Soul Club. The decor is all original and gives a very nice sixties feel. The bars are reasonably priced at £4 per bottle of beer (typical city centre price) and all the staff are really nice and friendly. The toilets are reasonably... More

We visited with a group of friends for the evening. From the welcome to the comedians it is well worth a visit. Will definitely be back

My partner booked tickets on a Friday night for the comedy show. Don't be fooled by the little frontage on the outside!!! We had a couple of drinks in the bar before the show started. They sell a great range of one off beers and ciders, which we gladly sampled. The show was non stop laughter! It felt quite intimate... More

Do not be fooled by the exterior of this place, it is friendly, quaint. Is dated but we like the vintage look. Really great comedians very funny, even made us laugh and we were all feely a little under the weather due to over indulgence with the drinking and eating in Liverpool all day. You must go to this venue,... More

Such a good place to relax, and listen to great tunes. The Staff where re\ally friendly, and the basment of the club was really big. The quality of the sound was great. I would totally reccomend any one who is visiting liverpool to go and have a night out at The Magnet.

I organized my Christmas night out at the magnet. We always go to a comedy club every year but we fancied a different venue, so I looked around and booked here, a nice venue and good value. I had a group booking and was sat on the right hand side of the stage. One of our party was encouraged to... More
