Best beer gardens and roof terraces in Liverpool

8 months ago

Though Liverpool is famed for its party atmosphere and buzzing nightlife, its daytime drinking spots are just as good (if not better). And when the sun comes out, you best believe there’ll be hoards of people looking for the nearest beer garden or roof terrace to soak up the rays with a pint or two.

To save yourself sitting on the edge of Albert Dock with a tin of Strongbow because you’ve been pipped to the post at your favourite sun trap, we’ve put together a list of the best beer gardens and roof terraces in Liverpool. Here’s to sipping on a cold one in the open air, not a care in the world. Cheers.
