Stag parties planning a big night out in Liverpool this year have been pointed towards one particular city centre nightspot as the ideal place to kick off their evening.
Writing for the Liverpool Echo, journalist Nick Peet said the Sir Thomas Street hotel bar attracts "a healthy mix" of young and old with its fine dining experience and cocktail-sipping social scene.
With a bright and cheery atmosphere, big-band style crooning and an impressive list of champagne cocktails, the venue could be ideal for those out to enjoy a more sophisticated celebration.
Ranging from partygoers to candle-lit couples, the "warm and courteous" drinkers the bar attracts make for an enjoyable atmosphere, Mr Peet writes.
Meanwhile, with a selection of specialist drinks behind the bar and a brand new range of champagne cocktails just a few weeks away, revellers are sure to find a tipple to suit their tastes.
Liverpool has long been a favourite with stag parties drawn by its lively nightlife, from the trendy pubs and clubs of the city's Concert Square to the cool and laidback bars that line Matthew Street.
