The Swan has stood the test of time as one of the Liverpool’s most popular real ale pubs.

From its early days of catering to the workers of nearby factories to its popularity in the heavy metal/rock community, The Swan has gone through quite the evolution yet remains true to its roots with the original front window and dedication to providing great service.

Today, The Swan is Liverpool’s No.1 rock and alternative bar, providing a steady balance between amazing music and amazing beer with our infamous jukebox, guest ales, Belgian bottle beers and our selection of whiskeys. Located on Wood Street, next to FACT cinema, we’re a must for beer fans and music fans alike.
