21 Liverpool beer gardens reopening from 12 April
3 years ago
We have so many Liverpool beer gardens to shout about so we will continue updating this article as the city reopens!
We’re counting down the days until April 12 when we can finally get back outside to eat and drink again.
Our restaurants and bars have been closed for so long, so we can’t think of a better reason to get the cocktails and beers in! Here are 18 perfect places it do it (hopefully in the sunshine) …
Roxy Ball Room – Hanover Street
Roxy Ball Room on Hanover Street has one of the best sun terraces in the city centre and it’s back open from April 12. You can book a table now or take a chance with walk-ins at the outdoor space at Roxy Ball Room Rainford Square.
Indoor booze and ball games will be on again from May 17 so get booking for American pool, ping pong, beer pong, crazy pool, shuffleboard and basketball machines.
PINS Social Club
Dreaming of sunsets with Sangria? If the answer’s 100% yes then, even though you’ll have to wait a few more weeks for fun on the lanes, get along to PINS for Liverpool’s biggest rooftop, complete with its own bar, ping pong and shuffleboard.
The Duke Street terrace has a brilliant cocktail menu, sangria pitchers and stone-baked pizza. It’s walk-ins only on the roof, Monday – Friday 2pm ‘til 10pm, and Saturday & Sunday 12pm ‘til 10pm.
Everyone’s favourite sunny day gin retreat, The Botanical Garden, has got its little oasis on New Bird Street all ready to re-open on April 12 … but not content with just one amazing space, it’s teasing a new one for summer too.
The location is still a secret, but it’s in the Baltic Triangle and hopefully it’ll be joining the original once restrictions ease so get ready for the wild hideout that is Sub Rosa, coming soon!
With cocktails, beers and some fantastic burgers and fries from Locked & Loaded, Birdies outdoor bar and barbecue is the perfect place for a meet-up with mates in the heart of Cains Brewery Village.
Get yourself a cabana booked in advance and celebrate the reopening night on April 12 with cocktails and live music from Sam Wise from 7pm. Bottomless brunch is back on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays too with bottomless prosecco or a keggie of beer included.
Revolution, Albert Dock
You need to keep fingers crossed for sun, but you can expect cocktails and party vibes when Revolution officially reopens its outside space from April 12.
Tables will be on a first-come, first-served basis so there’s no bookings, but take your chances and you could be having martinis and mojitos by the dockside in no time. Don’t forget it’s 2 for £10 on R-Heart cocktails, Sunday to Friday from 3pm to 7pm with the Revs App.
Fancy a strawberry daiquiri or a classic Aperol spritz to see you nicely out of lockdown? If so, then Maluco on Castle Street’s got you covered from April 16.
Obviously there’s their amazing 18-in pizza, that’s a given, so why not combine the two and have a pizza party with cocktails or beers on the newly extended outdoor terrace area. It’s undercover too, so you’ll be sorted even if it gets showery because nobody likes a soggy margherita.
Ma Boyle’s Alehouse & Eatery
It’s very nearly time to join Ma on the terrace again for a few drinks in the sunshine at one of Liverpool’s favourite waterfront locals.
Ma’s is back open from April 12 for outside table service and takeaways, weather dependent, and bottomless brunches will also be back on from then too. Bookings are now being taken so if you fancy drinks on Tower Gardens with a view of St Nick’s, better get one sorted.
Seems like a lifetime since Concert Square was Liverpool’s party central and the cocktails were flying out all day and night, but Soho has got loads of outdoor space so it’s back on from April.
You’ll have to wait another month or so to grab a booth inside but in the meantime, a table in the Square will be fine to work your way through the massive list of cocktails. Pornstars first obviously but then why stop there?
Black Lodge Brewery
Black Lodge Brewery has been keeping the beers coming through lockdown thanks to its online shop and delivery, but now it’s nearly time to get off the sofa and drink them out in the open at last.
Beers and burgers are back on in the beer garden in the Baltic from April 12 and, one for the diaries, on April 24 the guys from Wylam Brewery in Newcastle will be taking over the taps and tunes.
Getting back to outdoor bevs wouldn’t be the same without a little stop at Seel Street and it’s looking better than ever thanks to a lockdown spruce up and a new menu.
The garden’s great, there’s been a bit of a paint job and Queens Bistro will be doing food so expect plenty of tasty dishes incoming. No bookings, but there are new opening hours so now it’s straight through 12 to 12, seven days a week.
We can always rely on the Merchant to come up with something special, and post-lockdown it’s no different. The garden is back open from April 12 and there’s a Block Party to celebrate from April 16 to 18.
Parr Street will be closed off all weekend for DJs, drinks and street food and then every weekend until May 17 there’ll be 90-minute brunch sessions with Nightcrawler pizza and unlimited gin or prosecco on the Parr Street Riviera.
Bombed Out Church
The Bombed Out Church Garden Bar is back from April 12. St Luke’s is one of the best spots in town for outdoor drinks so, even though booking’s not essential, it’s definitely a good idea if you want to guarantee yourself a table.
There’s a £5 non-refundable booking fee which goes towards preservation of the church and extended opening hours – April 12 from 1pm-10.30pm and then Thurs & Fri 4pm-1030pm, Sat from 12pm and Sun 12-9pm.
MOJO’s new cocktail garden
The new cocktail garden at MOJO will be ready to open on Monday 12th April when outdoor restrictions are lifted.
This brand new space, located at the back of the bar will be a social set up featuring 12 benches that can each seat up to six people and there will be covered spaces to cope with the typically unpredictable British weather.
The Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill, which is located at Hotel Indigo on Chapel Street, is now looking forward to welcoming customers who have not been able to enjoy a meal out since lockdown restrictions came into force. More of a restaurant with outside space than a beer garden, but still a beautiful courtyard and frontage serving up a host of drinks and delicious food.
And if you fancy staying outside the city centre …
If you want to keep it local, Liverpool’s got loads of great beer gardens that aren’t in the city centre too, so here are a few to choose from:
In south Liverpool, The Dovey on Penny Lane’s back open from April 12 for outdoor drinking in its go-to beer garden and Allerton Manor has got Fletcher’s Sports Bar and its beer garden with a 250 capacity all ready for enjoying sport on a huge outdoor screen right the way through summer.
On Lark Lane, there are lots of outdoor options including Polidor68 with a little sun trap garden perfect for cocktails and Love & Rockets which built a new outdoor terrace during the first lockdown so it’s all ready for April 12.
The lovely big beer garden at the back of The Sefton in West Derby Village will be back open from April 12, and bookings for that have just opened online.
And heading out towards Crosby deserves a stop off at the landmark that is The Liver in Waterloo so get a few drinks in its beer garden which reopens from April 12.
The beer garden at the Horse & Jockey in Melling could be one of the best in the city, the team have worked hard to support their local community throughout the pandemic and if its a big Liverpool warm welcome and delicious pub grub you’re after whilst enjoying your Al Fresco bevies then the is for you.
