When you think ‘cocktails bars in Liverpool’ you may already think ‘Alma de Cuba’. By now we are fairly synonymous with our coveted Cuban cocktail menu.
You may also know us as the Liverpool bar where rose petals rain from the ceiling to announce the start of our regular weekend carnivals (every Friday and Saturday at 11pm) but something we are not known for, up to this point, is the dark, rich in ritual, mystical religion Voodoo.
All that is about to change this Saturday as we launch our newest night.
If you plan to head out this weekend to visit the cocktail bars of Liverpool, make sure that you are in Alma de Cuba when the witching hour sets in on Saturday.
11pm on Saturday 19th August will see our usual rain of rose petals, followed by a stellar performance from our samba dancers (and no other cocktail bars in Liverpool can promise you that) but this week, when midnight strikes, the atmosphere will shift.
If you are in our Liverpool bar this Saturday at midnight you will see black rose petals fall from above and hear the approaching sounds of Katumba drummers, as the city’s most darkly mysterious party, Voodoo, descends.
Drummers and dancers will unite to create a unique and exhilarating performance, the like of which you definitely will not see in any other cocktail bar in Liverpool.
Of course, no other cocktail bar in Liverpool can provide the dramatic backdrop that this huge, repurposed church has to offer either.
As it launches, with a rapture of splendid sound and sparkle, Voodoo really will be a sight to behold.
Following the show our resident DJ will pick up the mantle, playing an atmospheric set to keep you on your feet until the sun comes up and the spirits settle, for another peaceful day in Liverpool.
Bars don’t come more unique than ours, so we think it’s about time we celebrated our magic.
There are plenty of great cocktail bars in Liverpool but few provide the fusion of cultures that prevail everything from our menu to our music.
Voodoo is an Afro Caribbean religious practice that was found in the Southern US and West Indies. It drew upon aspects of Roman Catholicism and African magical rites.
Set, as we are, with the backdrop of a Roman Catholic church and bringing together the British, the Latin and the American, we felt that this was just the right name for us to work some magic with.
Join us for a caipirinha, stay for the spirits.
