The Bastion Bar & Restaurant allows diners to explore the life and career of Liverpool’s legendary manager through amazing Bill Shankly memorabilia. Our Liverpool hotel is a joint venture between the Shankly family and The Shankly Hotel, and allows guests to view everything from Shankly clothing to his famous typewriter.

The Shankly family have donated memorabilia from their private collection so guests can learn more about the world famous football manager. Liverpool became Shankly’s home, even after he retired from managing Liverpool FC.


You can view fan letters to Bill Shankly in our comfortable and stylish waiting room, as well as his prized typewriter, which he used to regularly write back to fans – and you can see these letters within the restaurant.

Take a look at Shankly’s MBE, his telegram from the first man on the moon, Neil Armstrong, and his original LFC contract. There’s so much to see at The Bastion Bar & Restaurant, and you can even enjoy delicious drinks and food as you soak it all in. Football fans across the world will not want to miss out on this unique experience.
