Diecast will be transforming its beer garden just in time for the summer.

Its huge outside space will be dubbed ‘Summer Town’ for the next few months, and has been expanded to cope with 800 revellers at any one time, making it one of the biggest outdoor spaces in the city.

The new set up will boast a new garden bar and a dedicated barbecue kitchen, which will be serving up chargrilled hanger steaks, hot dogs, kebabs, burgers and rotating chef’s specials, and even its own ice cream van.

Meanwhile, the garden bar will be introducing a new line-up of the venue’s famous frozen daiquiris. 

Piña Colada, Pink Lemonade and Mango will be on the menu, joining the 49 current flavour combinations on offer from its custom daiquiri dispensers.


Meanwhile, the garden’s rum caravans will be available to book through the whole of the summer, for groups of up to 45 people.

Diecast opened almost a year ago, in July 2023, debuting its Leno Ex Machina restaurant and kitchen, as well as unveiling its huge outdoor garden.

Since then, it’s expanded the former foundry and die casting factory into the space at the back, turning into a Brooklyn-style beer hall.

It now also has its own ‘convenience store’, as a secret karaoke room.
