As the nights draw in and the air gets a little colder, it’s hard to beat a cosy little downstairs bar with fiery hot drinks. El Bandito ticks all the boxes.
Opened on New Year’s Eve 2013, it has one of the largest collections of tequila and mezcal outside of London.
Hidden below Slater Street, off the street it looks like any old staircase, but ask the bouncers at Santo Chupitos and they’ll be able to nudge you in the right direction.
No bigger than your bedroom, the walls are lined with old movie posters that are hardly visible in the light.
Tall mates should look out for the low hanging beams, but you’re here to drink and they can sure show you how to. Late night party every day of the week.
This place is famed for its tequila so get stuck in. If you’re going in for the shots this is the kinda place to ditch the lime and salt, their tequilas are so good you won’t need them.
El Bandito, 41b Slater St, Liverpool L1 4BX
