FOUR bars and clubs in Liverpool?s Albert Dock will relaunch on Friday after having their licence to serve alcohol restored.

The licences for Circo, Raven, Korova and Babycream lapsed after their operator, Docklands Bar Ltd, fell into administration.

They have now been re-licensed on a temporary basis while a full alcohol licence is sought.

All four bars have now been taken over by a new company, Leisure Management, and will be holding relaunch weekends from Friday.

A range of activities will take place, including a circus-themed ?freakshow spectacular? at Circo bar and restaurant on Friday night, hosted by celebrity ringmasters David Gest and Amanda Harrington.
