For our first venue announcement, we welcome one of West Kirby’s newest additions! Located on the site of one our former venues, we are delighted that the guys at GRAND AVE. have come on board with us at West Kirby Live.
Grand Ave is an independently run Bar and Restaurant, serving breakfast, brunch, dinner, coffees, beer, cocktails and shakes! They also have a wide range of menus offering diversity and authenticity to suit all hours, tastes, ages and styles.
Grand Ave brings a touch of the US to West Kirby and there is now regular live music to check out on weekends.

From the owners: “The name Grand Ave comes from the Elmhurst neighbourhood in Queens, one of five boroughs of New York City. Grand Ave subway station was merely a minute’s walk from where we made our home in the borough of Queens so many times in the last decade.”

The West Kirby Tap has been a venue during each of our years and as can be seen below it’s always a busy day there! Showcasing fantastic bands for West Kirby Live whilst serving some of best local ales and gins!

“Having been apart of West kirby live since the beginning we are looking forward to this year being the best one yet.
As all of our staff say West Kirby comes alive and it’s the best day of the year, with all proceeds going to an amazing charity. Bring on the 1st June.”
