About the restaurant
Boasting one of the finest drinks cabinets in all of Merseyside, Tipple Bar in Southport is a bar and restaurant with real character. A much-loved member of the Ainsdale community, Tipple Bar’s fine selection of wines, cocktails and craft beers can be paired with refreshingly light British and European fare. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a casual nightcap or a cheeky round of cocktails with friends, you’re sure to fall in love with Tipple Bar’s warm ambience in next to no time. What’s more, when the British weather is behaving, you can even snap up a seat on the sun-kissed terrace and watch the world go by. Put those plans for a quiet night at home on ice and head down to this Station Road spot for an entertaining evening!

Amazing! I had the best birthday here! My partner and I had the loveliest experience. Bartender Ben and servers Aimee and Harry went the extra mile! The kitchen staff made us the best food and I had a lovely birthday dessert to celebrate! Best cocktails as well! The live music was lovely! Best olives in Liverpool as well, could have eaten a thousand. Really fantastic place and staff, would highly recommend

I had a pasta dish with prawns which was delicious. My partner had the new chicken escalope which was also cooked beautifully and was enormous. However, we were disappointed it was served on its own so customers need to be aware of this. Trisha our waitress was very friendly and attentive as were all the staff who dealt with us.

About the restaurant
Located on the 18th floor of INNSiDE by Meliá, Gino D’Acampo 360 Sky Bar and Sky Bar Terrace are two of Liverpool’s most coveted venues. Combining world-class cocktails with unrivalled views of the city’s skyline, the exclusive restaurant and bars deliver an unforgettable experience.

Soak up the sun along with the incredible scenery at the newly opened Sky Bar Terrace. Suspended over 270 feet above the ground, the contemporary terrace is the highest alfresco bar in Liverpool and unquestionably the chicest spot from which to watch the setting sun.
When the night draws in along with the weather, the drinks continue to flow at 360 Sky Bar. Here guests can enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Liverpool and beyond, with the venue’s resident DJs playing long into the night.
