A brand new bar has opened in Cains Brewery Village, but it’s not your average bar.
The 60’s and Beatles-inspired venue is based inside a yellow submarine. Before it was a bar, the impressive submarine has had quite an exciting past.
Originally it was used as a prop in the Sean Connery film Hunt For Red October, before the current owners bought it from Paramount Studios.
For years, the yellow submarine was then used as a floating hotel on the Albert Dock and had visits from celebrities including Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Tony Curtis, Nick Rhodes and more.
Now it’s based in the Baltic Triangle and is Liverpool’s only yellow submarine bar.
Founder of the bar Alfie Bubbles, who also owns The Black Pearl and Hippie Chic in Cains Brewery Village, told the Echo: “It’s a very trendy area and an up and coming place, so we had to open here.
“Now there are more Beatles fans than ever too, so it’s something different for the city.”
Inside the retro bar is decorated with Beatles memorabilia, so once inside, guests can also take advantage of the Instagram opportunitiesThemed cocktails on the menu include the Yellow Sub made with malibu, Bacardi, pineapple juice and orange juice, Ringo Starr with vanilla vodka, passion fruit, pineapple juice, passoa and prosecco and Lennon with tequila, orange juice and grenadine.
