Legendary Liverpool bar LA’GO celebrates 25 years in business


After a challenging couple of years, Liverpool’s nightlife sector is preparing itself for a
busy year ahead, and no-one will be celebrating more than the team at LA’GO,
based in Colquitt Street. Launched in 1997, originally as a Motown bar, it soon
became known for its affordable drinks and great music. Since then, the venue has
weathered every economic and cultural storm, and is looking forward to a packed
roster of events, including their Valentine’s Meet Market night on 14th February. The
event’s name reflects the LA’GO tongue-in-cheek, witty vibe that they have become
famous for.

LA’GO has been around for 25 years by creating its own unique niche: it prides itself
on being a safe bar, where the management and staff are approachable and get to
know their customers well. And it is also known as a place for a great night out
where people can leave their pretensions at the door with people from all walks of
life joining them: students, grown-ups, pensioners, prins, the lot!

The drinks menu at LA’GO is also one of the reasons customers return again and
again, and its range of shots, from Jagerbombs to Sambucas, to the house special
the ‘Baby Stella’ and a whole host of delights in-between, ensure that everyone
involved gets to enjoy an affordable night out.

As well as being a place to celebrate any occasion, whether it be Valentine's Day,
any given Monday, the start of the weekend, or the weekend itself, LA’GO is also a
place where football lovers head for a good time, as the venue regularly hosts the
very best Premier League, Champions League and international matches, where
fans can enjoy the LA’GO atmosphere and join in the celebrations.

Phil Gillespie, Head of Marketing at LA’GO explains: ‘LA’GO is a place which is held
in huge affection by everyone who visits us here: it is why we have been around for
25 years now, and why some of our customers have stayed with us that long. We
are all about giving everyone who comes in a great night out, with brilliant
soundtracks, and a friendly atmosphere where they can mix with every demographic.
Quite simply, we are the very opposite of venues with velvet ropes and VIP vibes –
everybody is equal to us. Because we offer great value, and our staff here soon get
to know your name, it’s all about the welcome and a chance to party without
pretence. We will be celebrating this special 25th anniversary year with lots of events
and themed nights, so keep an eye on our socials, and we look forward to seeing
you all.’
