It’s rooftop season! As the summer approaches and some of our favourite venues throw open their doors, we want to tell you all about our favourite hidden gem. Nestled above Oh Me Oh My, Goodness Gracious is first on our list in Liverpool when it comes to drinking al fresco (and high up).

An oasis of calm that’s located directly across from The Three Graces, it has the best view of any bar in Liverpool. That’s not up for debate, it’s a straight fact, we challenge you to find a more picture-perfect place to capture the Liver Buildings in all their glory.

Open from Wednesday to Sunday each week, you can enjoy a drink from 12 pm till late with no need to book. But this is a popular spot so don’t be disappointed if you rock up later in the day and can’t get a spec, they’re strict with capacity in order to keep it a chilled-out haven. It’s a relaxed vibe, thoughtfully designed and with attentive staff on hand to provide suntan lotion or blankets – depending on the weather.

Drinks-wise, we’re talking laidback and civilised, think a chilled glass of sangria in the sunshine rather than downing tequila shots. If you’re looking for an extra special treat, book the Champagne Afternoon Tea, delicious sandwiches and cake served on the stunning roof garden between 12 pm – 3 pm Wednesday to Friday.

Despite being in the centre of Liverpool, bang next to one of the busiest roads and surrounded by buildings, 8 floors up and you’re a world away from the noise. With guest DJs and musicians planned, we’d recommend putting this dreamy venue on your To-Do list this summer.
