Life is a Cabaret at The Shankly Hotel’s Fabaret Friday’s

It’s Showtime this Friday at The Shankly Hotel as we welcome Fabaret to the Bastion Bar and Restaurant. Provided by acclaimed Liverpool theatre production company Life in Theatre, Fabaret is sure to have everybody’s toes tapping by the end of the night.

What to expect

A fabulously fun night of free entertainment including live performances of sultry soul and funky Motown. For the movie lovers among you, there will even be a tribute to Bond films of old and new and a spot of Disney magic to round off a night of superb live entertainment.

A little history of Cabaret

Fabaret at The Shankly - Cabaret

Unless you have been living under a rock then you must be aware of the musical Cabaret starring a very young Lisa Moneli. The bowler hat, short shorts, and suspenders are an iconic Hollywood image today.

But the origins of Cabaret can be traced to the early 16th century in France. The meaning of the word originally pointed to the venue the performance was held in. Be it a bar, restaurant or nightclub, cabaret was often performed to patrons who were enjoying another leisure activity, the performance just being the background filler.

In short, Cabaret was not as grand as a theatre performance and came just short of being classed as a concert. Cabaret was essentially the DJ of ancient times, a soundtrack to accompany your evening meal or drinks.

Book your Fabaret today

The Shankly Hotel will be hosting this Fabaret spectacular for foreseeable Fridays to come.

Make sure you have your seat booked and like Lisa sang;

“What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play. Life is a Cabaret old chum Come to the Cabaret.”

Why not surprise somebody who loves live entertainment and book a Friday night at The Shankly?

You and your party can then enjoy a fun Fabaret performance in the Bastion Bar and Restaurant and then a luxury overnight stay in one of our Bill Shankly themed hotel rooms.

Fabaret is free to attend and the curtain lifts at 20:00 pm this Friday, do you have your dancing shoes ready?

The Shankly Virtual Experience Comes to The Bastion Bar & Restaurant

We here at The Shankly Hotel strive to make our guests feel close to one of the greatest football managers of all time, Bill Shankly. In addition to offering accommodation inspired by the late manager, we also offer unseen memorabilia throughout The Bastion Bar & Restaurant from the Shankly family’s private collection.

People from across the world have joined us to learn more about Bill and explore our beautiful city. For this reason, we are delighted to have launched a truly unique experience, which will allow his fans to become closer to the manager than ever before.

Liverpool FC legends Ian St John, Ian Callaghan and Chris Lawler joined us for the launch, and were amazed to see a realistic version of Bill Shankly appear next to them on a screen on the wall.

Ian St John told the Liverpool Echo, “I’m not into new technology at all so, for me to see that, I go ‘what is this?’ It’s a new world, isn’t it? It’s fantastic.”

It wasn’t just Ian St John who was wowed by the animation, as Ian Callaghan remarked, “He’s on the screen, he’s sitting beside you and the next thing you know you’re on your best behaviour!”

It wasn’t just the Liverpool legends who couldn’t wait to experience the virtual experience, as Shankly’s family were delighted to introduce the new experience to guests.


Chris Carline, Bill Shankly’s grandson and Managing Director of The Shankly Hotel, commented: “Only a few places in the world do this and we’re all about unique experiences. It’s based on this idea of fantasy dinner parties. If you could invite one person, who would it be? So many Liverpool fans would choose Shankly and now they can have him there.”

The animation was designed by the forward-thinking software company Draw and Code, who have worked tirelessly to create a truly unique and impressive experience for our guests.

Andy Cooper, Creative Director at Draw and Code, said, “We wanted to create something really exciting that got across the experience of coming to The Shankly Hotel. We worked with the hotel to work out all the things that made Shankly really iconic, all the things that everyone knew him for when he was on the pitch, training with his platers and when he was speaking in front of his fans and trying to put those into a little bit of an experience.

“We worked with an actor who impersonated Bill Shankly, who studied all the tapes of Shankly that we could get access to, showing his mannerisms and how he walked, then our 3D artists were able to work on his expressions and trying to get the true feeling of Bill Shankly. It’s a very Liverpool production for a very Liverpool manager.”
