Mowgli Trust Dog Show will be full of doggie contests, great local food and drink stands, craft stalls, plenty for the kids to do – and Johnny Bongo doing his thing in the main arena too.

Enjoy the last of the high temperatures with cocktails at Goodness Gracious

Getting up and out on our rooftop bars is a summer treat, but we’re not prepared to give up on it just yet – there’s still some outdoor cocktail drinking to be had and Goodness Gracious, the rooftop of Oh Me Oh My, has some of the most fabulous views in the city, right opposite the Liver Buildings, so it couldn’t be better.

Check out the new Gino’s and Sky Bar at INNSide by Melia Liverpool

This newly opened hotel looks like an absolute stunner and one of the highlights is the new Gino’s up on the 18th floor. There’s a huge classic and signature cocktail list plus a menu of Italian small plates, cicchetti, split into five sections – stuzzichini, pesce, carne, vegetariani, and dolci – so there really is something for everyone.
