Summer in the city isn’t complete without whiling away the hours basking in the sun, a few floors above street level. If you are anything like us and head to the nearest rooftop bar as soon as the clock strikes 5.30pm, you’ll want one to stash away for when the snow (!) finally leaves us alone and lets us enjoy Spring. Opening on Sunday for the whole Summer, the rooftop at Bird of Smithfield is being transformed into a Milanese terrazza and the best bit? Complimentary Aperol Spritz’s for one and all.
Free drinks aside, there are multiple reasons why the Aperol Spritz Terrazza will be a staple on your Summer agenda. A series of free talks and workshops by various hosts kick off at 7pm, Monday through to Saturday, meaning a whole hour of Spritz before you take part in an aperitivo workshop with Italian restaurant and supper club Forza Win, DJ masterclass with the people at Soho Radio and, our favourite, cocktails and conversation with The School of Life. Check the website for details of the Aperol Spritz Socials, as more dates will be announced soon.
Aperol Spritz Socials at Bird of Smithfield, May – August. See website for details.
