Situated on Liverpool's historic Royal Albert Dock, we're the most contemporary sports bar venue focused on delivering all live sports alongside a world-class food, cocktail & drink offering.

Your doggies are welcome to watch Sport with you too!

Sports Bar Liverpool, Albert Dock

Live Sports

Visually, it's incredible. We have 11 x 4K screens across two floors, meaning you'll never miss a minute of your favourite sporting event. There isn't a position or seat you can't view the sports! That doesn't include our enormous 4K projector applied over two floors! Our sound system is impressive too. You have to hear it to comprehend it!

Our award-winning team have worked painstakingly to curate a world-class drink offering. Plenty of beers are on tap, and bottles in the fridges to tickle all fancies. Our cocktail menu comprises old classics and unique cocktails we have created. You won't encounter this offering in your everyday sports bar.


Everyone loves a sandwich. That’s a fact. We have a great selection of monster butties to slay even the hungriest appetites. From a roast beef French Dip to a vegan Bahn Mi, all dietary requirements are covered. We also have a selection of smaller snacks for those who fancy a nibble while watching a game - great food for watching sports!


At The Long Shot, we positioned our service foremost. No other sports bar positions this at the forefront of their minds like ours. Table service is offered throughout, and we’ll never pack people in like sardines. There are plenty of places for that vibe. We’re different, and we’re proud of that.

Party Venue Hire

The Long Shot is a bar situated in the world-famous Royal Albert Dock. We're incredibly lucky to have such an exquisite space to call home. That space can be yours for a night (or day!) with our free function room hire (depending on day of the week), with private venue hire available for christmas parties, birthday parties, weddings, corporate/office parties etc. Don't hesitate to contact us at for more information on private hire availability. You are not required to hire the entire venue - we can accommodate small and large groups of up to 150 people! We do not charge a hire cost for the venue, but a minimum spend is agreed between us and yourself/guests! Don't bother with that old function room, and hire our venue on the Albert Dock!

28th November 2022

Just over one week of the World Cup over and it’s been a busy one in our little corner of the Royal Albert Dock! We’ve had two England games - one where they turned up and the less said about the USA game the better! The other 31 nations have played out some phenomenal games of football and we’ve shown every second here at The Long Shot.

Last Monday saw us host England’s 1st World Cup game vs Iran in conjunction with Arthur and HFG - two recruitment companies. Over 150 people watching a comprehensive victory and saw us score 6 goals in a thrilling game.

For the 4pm game - The Long Shot transitioned into a Dutch bar as we welcomed 100 Dutch Students working with Edumundo in Liverpool - they turned the whole bar orange and ordered plenty of cocktails not to mention winning 2-0! Viva Hollandia!

We rounded off the day in our bar with a full house watching Wales v USA what a day of sport and three completely different events watching the best sporting event in the world in the best sports bar in Liverpool (if we do say so ourselves!)

8th September 2022

Aside from the unfortunate announcement regarding Her Majesty, this week has been humming at the Royal Albert Dock's only Sports Bar! We're also creeping closer to the beginning of the NFL season, which we take very seriously down here every Sunday; combine wings, happy hour and touchdowns with all the sound all night long!

Not to mention the start of the Champions League in football, and we all know how that ended last year for Liverpool. Perhaps a better result and another parade?

2nd June 2022

Well, that marks the first season of us being open, and we loved every second! Thanks to every single one of you for being a part of it, and we're already plotting the next one. But we're not done there, far from it! We thought we'd take the time to send a little email with what's coming this summer from our little corner of the docks.

Obviously, the premier league is over (for a couple of months anyway), but we still have the F1, International football, and Wimbledon is fast approaching.

We've launched a brand new cocktail menu, and we can't wait for you to try it. Wait, there's more! Absolutely all of them will be available during our Happy Hour, which is growing more infamous by the week. If you don't know what it is, you need to get down!

18th May 2022

The last week has been an absolute roller coaster at our little corner of the Albert Dock. We've had the FA Cup Final, which saw Liverpool bring home the cup against Chelsea (even after our nerves went as the game went all the way to penalties). We had Pint of Science in on Monday and Wednesday, mixing science lectures with Margs and plenty of beers. We'd have paid more attention in Uni if it was more like that!

Also, we had the opportunity to host the lovely folks from Taylor Wessing law firm, who had their end-of-year party with us on Friday. They had the whole venue, a slideshow on the screens and a personalised buffet selection served throughout the evening.

4th May 2022

April has seen plenty of action in The Long Shot, with Liverpool playing nine games over the month. Competing on all fronts, May will (probably) see them in two finals (Champions League and FA Cup) as well as taking the league right to the end. The Albert Dock’s newest sports bar has also seen Everton attempt a revival as they won a vital game against Chelsea at the weekend to maintain their premier league status.

As well as the football, we’ve had plenty of other sports on. With the F1, Rugby Union and League also appear on our screens throughout the month. We’ve also started weekly football teasers in the venue and on our socials, so keep an eye out for them. Though don’t blame us if they’re more infuriating than entertaining!

23rd March 2022

Well, this month has been an absolute belter, and the sun is shining! It’s been a little stretch, but our outside seating is finally put to good use after the winter pause! Beautiful views of Liverpool’s Royal Albert Dock and tasty cocktails are poured in the Merseyside sun!

We’ve had some busy days recently with sellouts for the League Cup Final and the UFC featuring Paddy the Baddy and Meatball Molly. March also saw the Six Nation’s finale - an absolute spectacle in the Rugby calendar and obviously out first here at The Long Shot!

For the Six Nations, we created a special menu working with cocktails bars across Europe from the host nations, and it went off! Keep your eyes peeled for future events like this!

22nd February 2022

Last week, we hosted our first Super Bowl party for the NFL end-of-season event! The Rams came away with the award after a roller coaster of a game! It was our first late licence event serving beers, cocktails and plenty of wings until the early hours - a first for us and the Albert Docks! All went without a hitch, and we’re already planning the next one, so keep your eyes peeled to see what’s coming next at Liverpool’s newest sports bar!

27th January 2022

We have gotten a late license and are showing the Super Bowl two weeks on Sunday! The most-watched sporting event of the year will be offered for the first time here at The Long Shot on the Albert Dock! We're teaming up with the Merseyside Nighthawks and LJMU Fury to present The BIG ONE! Working with two local community teams means all proceeds from tickets will go towards ensuring these teams can continue to play NFL at a high standard throughout the UK! Not only will you be supporting grassroots sport here in the UK, but you also get to watch the game with plenty of Jack Daniels goodies and fun thrown in... winner! Super Bowl LVI is the 56th NFL Super Bowl final on Sunday 13th February 2022, with kick-off at 11:20 pm.

21st January 2022

We’ll be the only place on the Royal Albert Dock you can catch every game of the Six Nations tournament, which kicks off in just over three weeks. We’ll have competitions where we can win free Guinness and beers and cocktails from each home nation. This will be the place in Liverpool to watch every try! Not only will we be televising all the action on the big screens, but we’ll also have the sound on so you can follow all of the action from this prestigious rugby tournament!

13th January 2022

What a start to the year it’s been. We’ve been hosting Staff Xmas Parties from around the city, bringing them down to The Albert Dock and ensuring they have a well-deserved blowout after Christmas! We’ve got plenty of sports on the horizon with some big things planned for the Six Nations Rugby, The NFL Super Bowl and, of course, the upcoming Champions League football matchups! We also got far too into the Darts over the festive period and realised we needed a board - so we’ve got one arriving this week. If you see yourself as the next Peter Wright, why not pop down and prove it? Not to mention we’re running our Happy Hour deal every hour of every day all January, including two cocktails for £12 - lovely, aren’t we!

1st January 2022

It’s been a mad six months that have flown by since we opened. Opening on the day of England’s Euro 2020 Quarter-Final match, we’ve been amazed and humbled by the support we’ve received and the regulars and friends we’ve gained in the first leg of our journey. We’ve laughed and cried, cheered for the reds and the blues, and seen birdies and bullseyes grace all 13 of our screens! We’ve shown Footy, Tennis, F1, NFL, Baseball, Cricket, Rugby, Darts and Golf - to name a few. We just wanted to say a very Happy New Year from everyone at The Long Shot, and Thanks for being a part of the start. We’d love you to keep being a part of the journey!

23th December 2021

The festive season is truly upon us, and we’ve been swamped serving plenty of mulled wine, festive buttys and beers. We hosted a party for Liverpool Football Club, who had the whole venue hired; we also had Taco or Don’t serve up Mexican street food in their pop-up. We have also had the NHS in with a great party that had an LED dance floor and a full fizz arrival, partying until the early hours. We’ve had the F1 finale, which lived up to the billing and plenty of football (apart from last weekend). All that remains is to wish you all a great Xmas; we’re closed for Xmas Eve and Day, but we’ll be back from midday Boxing Day with Premier League Football All. Day. Long!

29th November 2021

A great week down at The Long Shot with live sport on all week. Liverpool is playing on Wednesday in the Champion’s league and a great day of football on Sunday with Everton, Chelsea and Man Utd all playing. A great week of NFL with the Thanksgiving games and Sunday Night games too! Next week we’ve got an enormous night coming up with Derby Day, Liverpool v Everton midweek, just after Happy Hour too. Wednesday’s done right.
