The Ethical Glass brings a touch of class to Liverpool

A new bar has opened in Liverpool bringing a fresh approach to nights out. The Ethical Glass prides itself on honestly priced wines, beers and martinis, and allows you to feel ethically good about drinking them as they pass on 5% of all profits to charity.

The quirky cocktail bar on Harrington Street (opposite the Hard Days Night hotel) challenges the perception that cheap cocktails constitute low quality drinks, and conducts business in an honest and philanthropic manner.

Owner Mark said:- "We operate in a different way to the chains. We offer very low prices for a City centre venue, but still use high-end brands in our food and drinks. Our regulars say that this is what makes the bar unique. That, and a warm reception, classy atmosphere and Rat Pack tunes in the air."

The Ethical Glass offers a place to go after work, meet friends, or just a really cool hang out with strong drinks, and quality-over-quantity food. With no sports screens, alcopops or karaoke, you'll be amongst the right crowd in a relaxed ambiance.

Mark continued:- "I wanted to create something different. Providing a personal touch and bringing back the values of the bar tender from the good old days. I want people to know what to expect at The Ethical Glass. We don't use gimmicks, fudged 2-for-1 promotions, pints at £1.70, nor Blossom Hill – just quality brands at honest prices."

The Ethical Glass brings star quality service and is one of the few businesses that chooses to share its success with charitable organisations. Owner Mark claims that wanting to give to charity has always been a personal aim, and comes from having worked in social housing in the past.

On entering the bar you get a warm, homely feeling and an expectation that you won't be met by groups of rowdy drunks on a stag doo. So it's ideal for that after work catch-up drink, a meeting place for a group of friends or a lunch date. And apparently the food platters are getting rave-reviews.

Its clear that in a world all about cost saving and convenience, its refreshing to feel like you're getting value for money without having to sacrifice on style and sophistication.  There are enough bar chains around, isn't it nice to go somewhere you've never been before, somewhere where you will enjoy a cocktail in a quirky atmosphere and tell your friends about the next day? The Ethical Glass guarantees you won't be disappointed.
