Liverpool's biggest outdoor eating spaces

The sun has shone on Liverpool reopening as lockdown restrictions ease. It’s been amazing to see people back in the city centre, supporting local businesses and enjoying meeting up for food and drink with friends in equal measure.

To support our region’s recovery and to give everyone chance to enjoy the steady return to normality there is now more outdoor seating in the city centre than ever before.

Spring in the Square – Exchange Flags

The latest hotspot for enjoying a bite to eat outside is Exchange Flags, complete with faux grass and a canopy covered area. All beautifully lit up at night it’s the perfect location for enjoying both the spring sunshine and long-awaited evenings out with a cool drink. It’s been popular so make sure you book and follow ExchangeFlags on Instagram for the latest availability and news.

Exchange Flags And Bacaro 900 X 300

Castle Street

Liverpool Without Walls continues to create more pedestrianised areas and one crammed with places to eat and drink is Castle Street. Liverpool favourites that have been so missed during lockdown have expanded their seating areas on to the street. You can once again devour a slice of pizza at Rudy’s, pick and choose from the wonderful Bacaro small plates or simply have a pint with a mate at McGuffie’s.

Bold Street

The original hub of Liverpool’s independents is bustling once again with lots of outdoor seating creating a fantastic atmosphere. Leaf is back with their specialist teas and delicious breakfasts, not forgetting the cake! The classic Italian Club, Greek street food venue Laros, Lebanese kitchen Bakchich and many more have all made the most of the alfresco dining space.

Liverpool One Boujee 900 X 300

Liverpool ONE

Liverpool ONE have increased their outside dining space by 100% so there is plenty of space for socially distanced noodles at Wagamamas or pizza at Zizzis. New for spring 2021 is a massive, and very pink, outside space for Boujee Restaurant and Bar. There are flamingos, pink parasols and most importantly food and cocktails 7 days a week. Boujee In The Park is walk ins only so no need to book.

Special mentions

The Roof at Pins Social Club on Duke Street has space for row after row of picnic tables. With a bar on the terrace and hand-stretched stone baked pizzas this sun-trap is great for a chilled catch-up with friends. 

Finally, a guide to outdoor eating in Liverpool wouldn't be complete without mentioning the Baltic Market. It's street food on another level in a newly maximised outside area, a short walk from the city centre.
