The His & Hers team is not adverse to enjoying a summer cocktail or two, so when the Luya PR team sent us a few excellent Liverpool bar recommendations, we couldn’t resist sharing them on the basis that it’s the next best thing to being in one of Liverpool’s top drinking spots right now.
1. Duke Street Food & Drink Market
With three unique bars and a stunning outdoor terrace to enjoy the summer sun, Duke Street Market, is Liverpool’s hottest opening this summer. Opening its doors on the 13th June, the market hall will also be home to six brilliant food vendors from Ginger’s Asian bowl food, Cuban street food from Finca, and pasta and pinza fromCucina di Vincenzo.
Duke Street Market’s outdoor terrace, located on the first floor, is multifaceted and will feature an eye-catching mural, numerous plants and a striking pergola. Holding up to 50 people, Duke Street’s terrace is the perfect place to come and enjoy a drink and delicious food in the sunshine this summer.
Three bars will showcase all the summer’s most popular cocktail trends with original and classic cocktails, alongside draught beer, an extensive wine list including many natural and organic wines. Two ground floor bars are nestled in the heart of the action, while on the mezzanine the island bar gives drinkers a birds-eye view of the bustle of the market and the chance to watch the expert bar team prepare unique cocktails right in front of you.
The restoration of the 100-year old warehouse has been led by Urban Food & Drink and co-founders of Graffiti Spirits Group (the team behind Santa Chupitos, El Bandito, Salt Dog Slims, 81ltd and Santa Maluco) who will bring their pioneering approach to drinks showcasing innovations from their Drinks Laboratory created uniquely for Duke Street Market. Syrups, liqueurs and other bespoke ingredients will minimise waste and maximise flavour demonstrating a focus on artisanal methods that is central to the Market’s ethos.
Three other places to drink outside in Liverpool this summer:
2. The Merchant
One of the coolest beer gardens around, head to The Merchant’s outdoor sun-trap and while away an afternoon with a goblet of gin in hand.
3. Santa Maluco
Watch the world go by with a cocktail and a slice of one of Santa Maluco’s famous pizza. Buy by the slice, a whole pizza or try their rodizio style of serving, an ‘all you can eat’ service where you can enjoy samples of pizza throughout your meal, until you tell them to stop!
4. Kazimier Gardens
Enjoy live music, Summer barbecues, wood fires and special events at this enchanting hidden gem. You also won’t have to worry about the venue being overcrowded, they offer a strict one-in-one-out policy, keeping a chilled atmosphere at all times at the Kazimier.
