Here comes the sun! and where better to soak up the scouse sunshine than in a beer garden. Liverpudlians are no stranger to such an activity, and with a huge range of places to drink the night away (with a little help from your friends of course), we've decided to let you in on all of the best beer gardens in Liverpool.

From big outdoor spaces that hold live music to scenic rooftops, quaint pub gardens to the boozy backyards of the city's most active clubs, the pool of life has everything that you could want. So, scroll down and start planning your next day out for when the sun graces the banks of the Mersey.



Baltic Beer Garden

When: Opening times vary, check their website for details

Where: Beaufort St, Liverpool L8 5XJ

Offering up afternoon eats and chilled beats, the Baltic Triangle's very own beer garden is a must-visit when looking for a cheeky pint with your pals. Based in Cains Brewery Village, the half-sheltered half-open hangar has an excellent range of locally brewed drinks alongside a range of tongue-tingling street food scran that comes together for a top experience. 

Not only this but the place is a massive suntrap thanks to the lack of surrounding buildings, which means you'll leave impressively sunkissed, or maybe even a little red if you're not careful (Brits in the sun eh). But if you're after a nice day out in the city centre then this Liverpool Beer Garden should be first on the list.

Now a little one for those of you with a more refined taste, who want to avoid the potentially lary weekend crowd. The Pen Factory is Hope Streets relaxed Bistro and Bar, found next to the Everyman Theatre. That does mean its a frequent for the theatre crowd, but, when the suns out, this cosy place becomes host to a crowd of people who are after that more relaxed pint (one might say sophisticated). It's absolutely gorgeous and the food, served from its theatrical open kitchen, is divine, and well worth a visit for that alone. 

Whilst this may not be the most traditional of Liverpool beer gardens, it certainly provides something that the others don't, and with an excellent range of cask ales, continental lagers and wines, what can go wrong?

Last, but certainly not least is The Kazimier Garden, a beautiful outdoor space belonging to the iconic Liverpudlian music venue the Kazimier. It's one of the most popular beer gardens once the sun starts shining, which means they operate a 'one-in-one-out' policy to make sure overcrowding never spoils the chilled, easy-going atmosphere. The beer garden itself is an inner-city slice of old times, with wooden everything and a sawdust floor, it can sometimes feel a bit like a western (just without the proper f****** shootouts).
