With the sun occasionally creeping out and British Summer time here, a drink at one of the rooftop bars in Liverpool is definitely overdue after the bitterly cold winter- and we’ve got to make the most of the warm weather. Here are some of the best rooftop bars in Liverpool for you to visit and take in insane views of the city. Warning: we can’t guarantee good weather so bring a coat or blanket because the cold Liverpool weather is not going to stop us from having a drink and a good catch up with friends.
A magical spot to visit all year round, Liberté boasts some of the best views in the city, such as the Liver Building in the background. This spring and summer you can enjoy luxury lounging on their rooftop, specially created for those warm days. Dine on beautifully presented meals and say cheers to freedom with refreshing cocktails on the UK’s number one rooftop bar, but be quick as slots are selling out super fast.
Liberté, Bentley Building, 50 Brunswick Street, L2 0PL
2. Garden of Eden at The Shankly Hotel
Well, if we can’t go to Ibiza then let this hotel rooftop take you there with plenty of cocktails to choose from, including passion fruit caipirinhas, and club tunes. The Eden Gin Skybar has three levels, including a VIP section which will feature table service, a pool and jacuzzi, as well as amazing views.
The Shankly Hotel, Millennium House, 60 Victoria Street, L1 6JD
3. Goodness Gracious
The name says it all as goodness gracious, this is a rooftop alright! Oh Me Oh My has reopened its gorgeous roof garden for you to soak in views of the incredible Three Graces. Weather permitting, the rooftop bar is open Wednesday to Sunday, plus you can now enjoy afternoon tea at Goodness Gracious too.
Oh Me Oh My, West Africa House, 25 Water Street, L2 0RG
We can’t get enough of seeing the iconic Liver Building, but what if we saw it from a different perspective? Up on the rooftop terrace at pan-Asian restaurant, Matou, you can appreciate an amazing view of Pier Head with the building front and centre as you sip on one of their refreshing frozen strawberry daiquiris. Their cocktail menu is extensive, plus their platters or dim sum baskets are the perfect options to share as you catch up with friends.
Matou, 2nd Floor Mersey Ferry Terminal, Georges Parade, Pier Head, L3 1DP
5. FIVE at Seel Street Hotel
Offering another alternative view of the city, FIVE rooftop bar at Seel Street Hotel offers incredible vistas of Liverpool Cathedral on St James’ Mount in the distance. The terrace has a boho chic vibe with wicker chairs, leafy plants and candle lanterns making it a great and comfy setting for future date nights. As for the drinks, FIVE has a dedicated spritz menu- we’ve got our eye on either grapefruit and rose or orange and apricot.
FIVE, 25-27 Seel Street, L1 4AU
6. Pin’s Social Club
The rooftop of Pin’s Social Club is back for the warmer weather plus you can always retreat inside for a game of bowling. This bar on Duke Street serves up refreshing carafes of sangria to share but after the winter we’ve all had, we don’t blame you if you order one each. Pin’s Social Club will also be serving up stone baked pizzas if you’re in need of a bite to eat and to soak up that sangria. There’s no need to book your place at the roof as it’s walk-ins only.
Pin’s Social Club, 45 – 61 Duke Street, L1 5AP
7. 14 Bar and Grill
The rooftop at 14 Bar and Grill absolutely oozes relaxed beach club vibes with a view of the Liverpool skyline that you won’t be able to stop looking at- or at least whilst you’re not tucking into their delectable dishes or sipping a refreshing tipple that is. 14 Bar and Grill is the beauty of Bootle, serving everything from sushi to steak, seafood dishes to salads alongside impressive, uninterrupted views of Liverpool and the docks above and through their glass border day and night.

8. Tempest on Tithebarn
Tempest on Tithebarn is a hub to enjoy drinks and meals out with friends, as well as playing host to a multitude of music and events. The beautiful venue is inspired by New York’s meatpacking district eateries, with a heavy focus on brunches, lunches, cocktails and craft beer (and we can’t complain about that). You cannot forget the rooftop which offers some of the best views in the city, with visibility of Liverpool in all directions due to being 10-storeys high.
