Taking to the third floor of the Bentley Building on the Strand, Liberté offers Insta-worthy views of some of Liverpool's best sights. As you're checking out the waterfront and the Three Graces, get stuck into steak and spring rolls with G&Ts, negronis and sharing cocktails too.

After-work drinks with a view? A boozy afternoon tea on the weekend? Whatever your style, elevate things with a trip to Goodness Gracious; the seasonal bar that serves Liverpudlians with sky high tipples from March through October.

Serving up traditional British pub fare and the drinks to go with it, Ye Cracke is a historic boozer in the heart of Liverpool. The 19th-century watering hole counts John Lennon as one of its past patrons, and with this glorious beer garden, it's not hard to see why.
