Future Yard isn’t just a live music venue – we’re also home to the best beer garden in Birkenhead!
Our Garden is open from 10am-11pm every day, and our Bar serves an array of the finest drinks for the whole family.
Whether you’re looking to sample some local beers, enjoy a refreshing cocktail, or just want to enjoy a soft drink in the sun, we’re here to welcome you to the Left Bank of the Mersey where good vibes are guaranteed.
The Future Yard Kitchen also serves food at every gig, plus every Friday-Saturday from 4pm onwards, regardless of if we’re hosting a gig or not. So if you build up an appetite while relaxing outside, we’ll have the perfect plate to help you refuel.
And don’t forget about the range of events that we host in our Garden – from our CRATE Market summer specials to our family-favourite Festival Days, we’ve got you covered when you need to unwind.
We can’t wait to welcome you to our Garden this summer. Never mind #thefutureisbirkenhead, it’s #thesummerisbirkenhead
The Future Yard Garden is family-friendly and dogs on leads are more than welcome, too. Check our FAQ page for more info or queries relating to Future Yard and our Garden.

We’re keeping our suppliers as close to home as possible. Partly because of our commitment to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible, but also because there are so many incredible independent brewers, roasters and mixologists on our doorstep!
Glen Affric are a craft brewery situated a stone’s throw from Future Yard, and have been brewing award-winning beers from their Birkenhead home since 2017. We’ve teamed up with Glen Affric on three corking beers which will always be available on our pumps: Dazzle Ships lager, Pale House Futsal and Dreaming Of Brew IPA. All are perfect to sup on while the sun beats down on our beer garden, as are a range of other lines on rotation from some of the region’s finest craft breweries. We’ll be mixing up our beers regularly, so you’ll have to check back in to see what’s on offer.
Our coffee is served fresh from a gleaming La Marzocco machine (😍) which puts out some of the most beautifully consistent espresso you can get. Our house espresso is provided by ALL CAPS, a speciality coffee roastery based in Chester who are committed to transparently sourcing tasty coffees in a sustainable way.
We’ll be getting the best milk from local dairy Peckforton Farm, and Bates Dairy will supply us with an oat alternative. Almond and coconut milk varieties are also on offer (Alpro).
For the easy goers, drivers, and people just chilling, we’re stocked up with a massive range of teas, fruit presses and soft drinks – because not everyone wants a caffeine or alcohol hit in the sun. Our range of teas comes from ZIGZAG, so you can sip on an Earl Grey, a zesty Yunnan Green, or a good old fashioned English Breakfast tea.
We’ll also have kombuchas and iced teas to pick from – and for those who want a halfway house, Schöfferhofer’s 2.5% ABV grapefruit wheat beer will be served on draught.
In keeping with our environmental sustainability pledge, all of our food offers are vegan and sourced from some brilliant local providers.
Our whole menu has had an overhaul and it now all fully vegan. We’ve got a mouth-watering burger, an update on our signature Big Dub Mac, some lighter plates and kid-sized portions so that everyone can find something to enjoy.
Check out the front bar for daily specials, including vegan cakes baked in-house. We’re serious about shaping the future of our eating habits here, and we’re really proud that we can offer this menu without compromising on taste!
Kids are welcome, so long as they’re with big kids (18+)! We’re a family-friendly environment, and we have high chairs and baby-changing facilities. We’ll also be stocking some lovely child-friendly drinks and food options. You’ll have to bring your own sun cream, though!
We’ve got a number of free events taking place in the Garden throughout the summer that will enhance your enjoyment: our regular CRATE vinyl and craft beer markets, a new menu launch (27th May) and a number of new festival days with live music and pop-up food vendors. As if you needed any more of an excuse to enjoy a drink outside in the best beer garden in Birkenhead!
75 Argyle Street, Birkenhead
The garden is accessible through a side door in the bar’s seating area, with a pebble pathway leading to it. It is approximately 40 steps from the door. If you need any assistance down this pathway, staff are on hand to help.
The main seating area is slightly elevated with a short ramp providing access. The main toilets are accessible from the garden down a ramp.
The DJ set-up in the garden is housed in a small shipping container, which provides ample room behind the decks. This is currently accessible by a shallow step up into the container.
We’ll look forward to welcoming you along to our Garden soon!
