Summer is almost upon us, and despite the casual spot of rain, we’ve seen the sun quite a bit lately. We thought it was only right that you’re all ahead of the game come shade worthy weather; so here are our top al fresco bar spots across the UK.

Bar & Co – London
It doesn’t get any more alfresco than drinking at a floating bar atop the Thames. With magnificent views of iconic city landmarks such as the London Eye and Oxo Tower, free entry and reasonably priced drinks, this is a top spot for the days when you want to make the most out of the sunshine. 

The Sterling - London 
Perfectly situated at the base of the iconic Gherkin, and with plenty of stylish outside seating, there’s no better way to enjoy some delicious tipples in the sun. Inside, the floor to ceiling windows create a bright and relaxed ambience, making The Sterling an ideal spot for a casual and laid back affair after a hard day’s graft. 

 
Barrio Shoreditch

Barrio Shoreditch - London
Bringing eccentric Latin vibes and culture to London is Barrio Shoreditch. With its chic and colourful alfresco hideaway nestled at the back, summer nights here will fool you into thinking that you’re chilling in Brazil. With a DesignMyNight booking you can choose from a selection of their tantalising cocktails for £5 each, between 4-8pm. 

 

Northbank Restaurant  - London
Perched along the Thames, the Northbank Restaurant has stunning views overlooking Southbank, and infuses great British food with refreshing blends of American tipples. Ladies, grab your girlfriends and celebrate the weekend early with a free glass of prosecco every Thursday evening. Fellas, you’re not forgotten, there’s five beers for £15 every weekday. Get set for some awesome evenings out this summer. 

 


Simmons Fitzrovia - London 
Dainty china cups aren’t just for tea! Simmons Fitzrovia are mixing it up and serving enticing and bespoke cocktails with a retro twist, best sipped outside in their whimsical outdoor area, complete with a white picket fence, and astro turf grass. Happy hour occurs everyday between 4-9, or turn it up a notch and try out the bottomless afternoon tea party with endless bellinis and boundless amounts of cocktail teapots!

 
Lost Angel

Lost Angel - London
Head down to the hedonistic garden at The Lost Angel in Battersea where you will be overwhelmed with a plethora of choice. Cocktail hours are 12-8pm on weekends, and gin Thursdays allow you to choose from their 17 strong gin list, all priced at £6! When the sun goes, there’s a heated and covered area to keep you drinking into the early hours. 

 

Grand Pacific - Manchester
Colonial interiors with a slick and stylish ambience, Grand Pacific certainly has plenty of panache. The large canopies are the perfect fixture to withstand all types of British weather, so come rain or shine you can sip on sumptuous cocktails that will tickle your taste buds. 

 

Brel - Glasgow
This cool and quirky beer garden is a fun, refreshing delight to the streets of Glasgow. Brel is ideal for a calm and chilled evening out with your mates; the exposed brickwork and beautifully lit canopy of trees give this bar a cosy and relaxed feel. Choose from a variety of brews from Belgium and beyond, and try out the awesome dessert menu to round off a great evening.

The Village - Birmingham
Vintage knick knacks and quaint interiors make The Village a whimsical delight in Moseley. Let the bartenders whip you up a unique and enticing creation to enjoy in the bright, botanical garden. With its quirky, rustic feel you’ll feel cosy in no time, so be prepared for some fun nights ahead.
