BOTANICAL GARDEN: Gin, summer and plants make this secret urban wonderland the quintessential British garden but believe us, it is not what you expect
THE PEN FACTORY: The interesting name is a nod to the ancestry of the building as it was once, you guessed it, a pen factory.
YE CRACKE: a popular pub located on Rice Street, just off Hope Street with tonnes of history.
MATOU: Airy, polished setting with floor to ceiling windows and waterfront terrace with delicious Pan Asian cuisine, what more could you want?
THE PUMPHOUSE: The Dock’s former pumphouse was built in 1870, and has been lovingly restored as a cosy traditional British pub, renamed The Pump House.
KAZIMIER GARDENS: One step into the gardens and it feels as if you’ve stumbled upon some sort of secret paradise.
GOODNESS GRACIOUS ROOF GARDEN: Arguably one of the most beautiful spaces in Liverpool to get a drink. On the rooftop of Oh Me Oh My, the whole building is a secret.
CONSTELLATIONS: Constellations is a multifaceted venue space that tries to encompass everything the Baltic represents in a few hundred square feet.
HUS: From the same chaps behind The Baltic Social, HUS was born after spending time in Stockholm and Copenhagen and basically falling in love with the eating and drinking scene over there.
