Purveyors of fine music since 1964. The Magnet is back! After nearly 2 years away and under new management - a Liverpool institution returns. Currently open Friday and Saturday nights with a full program of entertainment 7 nights a week coming in September. Expect live music from up and coming as well as established acts and the city's best DJ's to keep you moving until the small hours of the night. In keeping with the venue's origins as Liverpool's roots music Mecca expect a soundtrack of Northern Soul, Disco and Funk with a modern twist. Our favorite drinking hole, second home and all round social hub of the city is closed no more, so come on down and take your place at the bar. Magnet is a bar, venue and nightclub with the emphasis on music, serving good liquor and entertainment until as late as is no good for you!

A great soul, old RnB, ska, Mod and reggae music session, all on original vinyl held here on selected Sunday afternoons throughout the year, 3pm until 9pm. This original 50s/60s cellar bar was running at the same time as the more famous Cavern and apart from a few upgrades its basically as it was back in the day. Fantastic atmosphere,... More

A lovely venue was spoilt by rubbish comedy. Almost fifteen quid for under two hours of 'comedy'. Pints of real ale at four pound twenty a go! Total rip off. Comedians that just slag off the audience and have nothing to say about current affairs are grade D. It was certainly amateur night tonight.

Recently went to see the Cure Heads, a tribute band to the Cure. Great show and venue. Good service and staff and enough room to dance and enjoy the show.

Visited for a comedy night in the cellar, which was intimate and just perfect for quality comedy. The bar staff were laid back and convivial which contributed to the general chilled out feel of the venue. Really enjoyed my visit to The Magnet and I would rather like to pop back for a dabble in the soul night.

I've lived in Liverpool my whole life and never been The Magnet before but we attend a comedy show here for a friends birthday. The clubs itself is decorated like a club in the 70s, some would say tacky but I thought it was good fun, I especially loved the built in fish tank in the bar! The drinks prices... More
