Redevelopment, regeneration and reimagining are all words that are associated with Liverpool’s changing property market in the last few years. Whether it’s the new plans surrounding the waterfront docklands, the changing face of the city centre or the emergence of collaboration and skill sharing as a concept between universities, there’s a feeling that something has changed for the better in Liverpool in recent times.
The name ‘Ropewalks’ is derived from the craft of rope-making for sailing ships that dominated the area until the 19th century. It is characterised by its long, straight streets running parallel to each other. The streets were built in this way to allow rope manufacturers to lay the ropes out lengthways during production. There are a number of historic warehouse buildings and it owes much of its character to the rope-making industry. The area has reinvented itself as the city’s “independent quarter”, and the mish-mash of historic streets and renovated warehouses, creative cafés and music venues makes it one of Liverpool’s best districts to explore.
Ropewalks is home to the quirky Bold Street, lined with an eclectic mix of independent stores, coffee houses and restaurants, as well as a variety of cultural institutions including FACT, the Grade I listed Bluecoat and St Luke’s, known locally as ‘The Bombed Out Church’.
Ropewalks is most famous for its vibrant food, drink and live music venues. Around the area you will find the Jacaranda, Motel, Attic, Heebie Jeebies or Shipping Forecast and Kazimier Gardens, all excellent bar choices. Bold Street and Berry Street, you will be spoilt for choice with the cuisine on offer. There’s everything from Indian street food at Mowgli and small plates with inspiration from Paris’ Le Marais at Maray, to Spanish tapas at Neon Jamón and authentic Japanese sushi at Miyagi’s.
