Hard to find but definitely worth the hunt, Camp and Furnace has got a lot going on under one massive warehouse roof, all you need to find is the buzzer to get in. There’s a gallery space that could happily house a festival or two, vintage caravans to get freaky in and plenty of space for whatever party you’ve got in mind. The restaurant and café is at the heart and a hard place to move from once you’re settled.
It’s more industrial than rustic in here, with a makeshift chimney, a fire fed by log piles stacked up Swedish style and a massive bookshelf filled with Penguin classics to get literate on. Their menu is home cooked and hearty and their homemade, wheat smoke Brown Bear beer is what to go for if you’re thirsty. Simple but effective touches like the cucumber water, cute staff, a taxidermy fox and rocket coffee make this place happily hipster, homely and one of BarChick’s favourite Liverpool hangouts.
