The 11 Stages of a Night Out in Alma

Monday the 28th of January, 2019

Whether you’re on a hen ‘do, stag ‘do, birthday ‘do – or just a go-on-it’s-the-weekend ‘do – Alma de Cuba is one of the best bars in Liverpool. Popular with both locals and visitors, this place is most certainly not your average night out venue. If you’re a regular, you’ll know that there’s never a dull night.

From sparklers to samba, shots to selfie-ready surroundings; here are the 11 stages of a night out at Alma de Cuba.

It’s official: the group chat has been informed. You’re putting your foot down once and for all this weekend. You’ve got your girls holiday to save for, a detox to stick to and an appointment with the gym in the morning. It’ll be a G&T for you and then bed! Have fun with your hangovers tomorrow, guys. Feels good to be this smug.

You’re more than a ‘couple’ of drinks deep and your old friend False Confidence is well and truly in full force. Now is the perfect time to shake what your mama gave ‘ya. While all of your mates film you, live on Facebook. Hi, Mum!

9. Trying (and Failing) to get on the Stage

Every. Time. You’ve attempted a variety of techniques in the past but reckon tonight is your night. It’s time for the run-up-jump-and-roll-straight-onto-the-floor manoeuvre. Sorry, everyone. Especially that lad whose drink went flying.

10. Your Friends Luring You Home with the Prospect of Cheesy Chips

The bar is closed, all the lights are on and your friends are tired. The only thing that can convince you to leave right now is a box of cheesy, melty carbs – and lots of them. You’ve still not found your phone. RIP.
