Riddled with nooks, crannies and corridors, Liverpool's Barfly is a venue you can really lose yourself in - in every sense of the phrase. Grand in scale but without sacrificing too much intimacy, the former theatre space is also entirely unpretentious in its aura and has served to totally redefine Liverpool's club scene in recent years - cutting lose from all the glam house and shiny handbags that it was once so synonymous with. Thanks to The Barfly (formerly The Masque), it's literally all about the music with two of the UK's most forward-thinking (and successful) promotions taking long-term residence here in Chibuku Shake Shake and Yousef's Circus. As such, pretty much every name in the game has passed through from Ricardo Villalobos and Sven Väth to Skream and Mr Scruff. If you haven't been, then you don't know what you're missing.
