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 as they prepare to celebrates 25 years in business.
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.”
