Liverpool's Secret Gardens- 10 Cool Places to Drink This Summer

Grab the sun-cream and dust off your sunnies ladies and gents, it's that time of year again. The sunshine is back, and if the weather's anything like last year (an unbearable heatwave for months on end) we better get used to it.

 What's kept us going through that long, bleak winter? The thought of outdoor drinking of course! So,with that in mind, I've put together a list of  10 super cool city-centre gardens where al fresco drinks and dining are the order of the day.  In no particular order...

1. Birdies Bar and BBQ

Location:  29-31 Parliament St, Liverpool, L8 5RN 
Vibe: A huge, astro-turf paradise in the heart of the Cains Brewery District. Three different food vendors, live music and plastic palm-trees, it's just like you're in the Bahamas, I swear

2.  Goodness Gracious Roof Garden
Location: 8th Floor West Africa House, 25 Water Street, L2 ORG
