If a bank holiday isn’t a good enough excuse to go for a few drinks, buy a new outfit and enjoy the sunny (yes, really) weather, what is? We’ve rounded up our top places to enjoy a boozy beverage or two this weekend so you can spend less time planning and more time shopping for that new outfit…

Pergola opened its doors again last week and we couldn’t be happier. Catch us with an Aperol in hand for the foreseeable.

Head up, up and away into the Mancunian clouds at 20 Stories. With a restaurant, bar and rooftop terrace, sip back, relax and take in the 360 views.

The team behind The Baltic Social bring us HUS: a super-cool Scandi space serving homemade beer, cider, cocktails and all-day brunch. That’s music to our ears.

Hidden in Birmingham’s jewellery quarter, The Button Factory is a must-visit for bottomless brunch or late-night cocktails on the roof garden. We’re sold.

If leafy settings and Victorian architecture are your thing, Glasgow’s Ubiquitous Chip AKA The Chip needs to be on your bank holiday itinerary. Just think of the Instagram story…

It’s the age old bank holiday dilemma, pub or bar? The Forth Hotel is the best of both worlds AND has a courtyard roof terrace. Better get those sunnies out.

Now for that outfit…
