We're not 100 percent sure if The Boatbuilders Yard space is considered a beer garden, but it sure is pretty. Located right on the harbour at South Wharf, this waterside bar is the place to go if you like your food and drinks served with a view. Designed by Six Degrees architects — the same people behind Auction Rooms and De Clieu — the venue operates with a functional simplicity that's refreshing to stumble upon on a summer's day.

And, owned by the same people behind Riverland, the venue has some decent bar know-how. Aside from the extensive wine list, punters can look forward to pitchers of summer cocktails including a Spiced Rum Cooler, Aperol Spritz and the classic Pimms No. 1.

Food is also on the menu these days. Expect a solid brunch menu and a selection of seafood-focused lunch and dinner options that include Al Pastor tacos ($18), a soft shell crab burger ($34) and sticky lamb ribs ($22). With great food like this, The Boatbuilders Yard is the perfect place to go when you're in search of a long lunch or dinner in summer — soak up the sun and city views on one of the large wooden tables.

Head to The Boatbuilders Yard website to book your sun-soaked table for brunch, lunch or dinner.
