‘The parties were bigger. The pace was faster, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper.’
As we pull ourselves out of a decade that’s had more downs that ups, we find ourselves back in the Roaring Twenties both figuratively and literally thanks to Collective. As a venue that aims to continually evolve, their newest edition encapsulates their ethos perfectly. As we enter a new chapter in the ever-changing story of the city of Liverpool, they are proud introduce to us all – ‘The Highball Club’.
100 years on from the era of optimism, the bar steps back in time to an age of limitless opulence, unrivalled glamour and time where optimism was served up by the gallon. Brimming with the romantic and luxurious ambience of the Golden Age and brought to life by classic cocktails 100 years in the making, ‘The High Ball Club’ is Seel Street’s latest hidden gem. Tucked away in the confines of the newly opened ‘Collective’, expect the venue to grow in grandeur to mirror the lavish parties experienced a century ago.
Collective looks to give the Roaring 20’s a new home in the heart of Liverpool with ‘bootleg’ liquor and quaffable delicacies fit for aristocracy. From Tennessee to Korea, a floral explosion to a punchy sour, The Highball Club’s eclectic menu takes you on a journey through the generation that defined frivolity. With plans to open 5 different venues within the Seel Street site, Collective’s core values of supporting local independents, mirrors the grand sense of ambition last seen 100 years ago. As a melting pot of different ideas and concepts, ‘The Highball Club’ will satisfy even the most impatient of you as more businesses begin to open over the next few months.
If there’s anything that you want, just ask for it, old sport.
