Pint or Prosecco in the Sunshine? Here’s 11 Beer Gardens in Liverpool worth a visit
Temperatures are on the up across Merseyside, cheers to that!
We’re finally getting a good week of weather and we need no further excuse to write up the best places to soak up the rays with a beer or cocktail in your hand! Whether it’s a swift half after work or a full on prosecco purge, we’re got a little green urban oasis for you!
Here’s our top Liverpool venues for al fresco drinks…
Oh Me Oh My, The Strand
This former bank at West Africa House has the most amazing roof garden with unrivalled views of the Royal Liver Building. Set on the 8th floor, the garden is open daily from 12 til 7 and serves food until 5pm. Check out www.ohmeohmyliverpool.co.uk
The Club House, Liverpool ONE
We love nothing more than tucking into tasty hanging kebabs and small plates with our after work goss and The Club House lawn is the perfect place to do it. With regular live music, an outdoor bar and loads of places to sit and sip, get there early to bag a table. More here.
Dovedale Tower, Penny Lane
With regular BBQ’s and a huge beer garden, Dovedale Towers is the perfect, quiet suburban setting to relax with a gin balloon and a burger! Check out their twitter account for regular updates on what’s on. @DovedaleTowers.
Heebie Jeebies, Seel Street
Heebies have recently refurbed their awesome courtyard just in time for the sun making an appearance and with regular live music and tea pot cocktails, who wouldn’t want to pull up an al fresco pew in such an eclectic setting? More info here.
Mackenzie’s, Rodney Street
We’re pretty sure MacKenzie’s is the only bar in Liverpool that has chesterfield couches and wing back chairs in and outside their bar! With a smart two level terrace, this Rodney Street bar boasts over 150 Whiskies, plus cocktails and beers. Check out www.mackenziesbar.co.uk for more info.
The Elephant Pub & Bakehouse, Woolton
The team at the Elephant and adjoining Liberty Tavern are committed to sourcing local produce and their range of British beers and gin is a brilliant accompaniment to their landscaped garden. With a child friendly atmosphere this village setting is perfect for a late dinner and drinks any night of the week. Check out www.theelephantwoolton.co.uk for reservations
The Kaz Gardens, Seel Street
This is one of the city’s hidden gems in our opinion. The word ‘quirky’ is over used nowadays but that word sums up the The Kaz Gardens perfectly. With it’s relaxed atmosphere and unique food & drink menu this is the perfect place to chill in the sunshine. From ice cream floats to cask ales, frozen cocktails and Vietnamese coffees, you simply won’t find another bar menu like it in Liverpool. Add to that the charcoal grill, live music and hipster regulars this is one of the coolest spots in town. Info here.
The Sefton Arms, West Derby Village
Known locally as The Sefton, this stalwart of West Derby Village has seen some miraculous make overs in recent years, but its huge beer garden has remained one of the best in the city. Pint and the match down The Sefton, yeah go on then! More info here.
Red Door Eden Rooftop Garden, Berry Street
Red Door Liverpool has firmly cemented itself in the ‘must go’ places on a night out in the city. Friendly and lively bar staff, a stunning cocktail menu and incredible live music – this bar has added the cool factor to Bury Street. The rooftop terrace is perfect on a sunny day, spacious, chilled and comfortable.
The BBQ nights have proven a huge success last summer but for now go and check out one of our favourite rooftop bars and treat yourself to one of the many swanky cocktails on the menu. More info here.
The Britannia, Otterspool
We love the Britania, does anyone not have memories of being sat outside on the big steps with a lemonade while your mum and dad enjoyed a summer pint? Knocking out roast dinner come rain or heatwave this family friendly pub has stunning views over the Mersey and an extensive drinks menu. Call 0151 727 8237 for bookings.
La Tasca, Queen Square
Who wouldn’t want to while away the hours in a sun trap court yard, sipping espresso martini’s? With a new range of summer drinks (Bloom and Strawbs is our new fave) and delicious tapas to snack on, and it’s own paella bar, La Tasca, Queens Square is the perfect location for a pit stop when out shopping.
