Does Your Dog Want To Get Married On A Peckham Rooftop?

Everyone loves a wedding! The dress, the hymns, marquees and cake; there’s nothing more special than the solemn vows and the party afterwards, a deeply meaningful combination of the spiritual and plenty of spirits, the bringing together ancient families and oldest friends in a binding forever union. I mean, surely there’s nothing you’d want more for your dog? Yes, the city that’s got everything just struck again, and this time it’s offering your dog, your actual dog, the chance to get married on a rooftop (er, ‘wooftop’, surely?). Could anything be more magical? More momentous? Or more weird? Thanks to […]

Is This London’s Poshest Rooftop Bar?

There are a number of places that VVIPs head to when they jet into London; maybe it’s TV studios, rounds of interviews at the BBC, a quick gig at the O2, papped stumbling out of Mahiki or The Groucho. But regardless, there’s one constant: mega suites. You or I may think that a hotel’s luxurious when there’s posh soaps to steal, when there’s a bottle of bubbles waiting or when the adult channels aren’t disabled. No, a hotel room’s smart when it’s bigger than your house. When everything (except maybe the bed) is made from marble and you’ve a butler […]

Wimbledon is made for the big screen. Even people AT actual Wimbledon are huddled on Murray Mount to watch the action as it happens on a massive screen. London has gone bats (rackets, surely?) for Wimbledon and it’s only natural that we’d all want to find a few million pixels of big...

Boris Isn’t The Only Eton Mess In Town: 9 Best Places For Eton Mess

It’s jolly boating weather, so how better to celebrate than to swing together to one of these spots serving some of London’s best Eton Mess. Eton College may have given us Boris Johnson, 18 prime ministers, half the last cabinet, the archbishop of Canterbury and our future king, but let’s not hold all that against them, after all they’ve also given us one of the best puddings known to mankind. The dish, full of meringuey, strawberryish goodness is pretty much a national dessert and the perfect summer pudding. So let’s get stuck in…   Manetta’s What: Eton Less Mess Why: […]

Britain’s Best Rooftop Pools

The ultimate summer accessory isn’t aircon or an ice machine, the really cool cats have something else: a rooftop pool. So while I go and check the potential loadings on my loft joists, here are some of Britain’s best rooftop pools.

La Dolce Vita Makes A Splash At This Rooftop Pool

When life gives you lemons, make… a rooftop terrace? It’s not all doom and gloom in London when summer hits, because even if the sun decides it doesn’t want to play ball, there are always little tropical paradises to escape to scattered all around the city. This summer we’ll see a little slice of Italy arrive on our doorsteps as La Dolce Vita comes to The Berkeley, Belgravia’s landmark hotel. Lined with lemon trees surrounding this little taste of Italy, the hotel’s hidden garden and swimming pool will be the number one destination. It’ll also help to elevate your Instagram feed allowing […]

The Tree-Mendous Jungle Terrace You Need To Visit

As sunnier climes creep up to finally drench London in a bit of well-deserved sunshine, we’re all hands on deck when it comes to the idea of a terrific terrace and a tantalising tipple. And, pandering to our post-work aperitif and glass-clinking dreams is the much-adored Dalloway Terrace; a venue that has really decided to play upon the theme of Leonard Woolf’s book, village in the jungle this summer. Offering up a ‘Jungle Lunch’ menu set amongst the flora and fauna of a re-imagined Sri Lanka, the terrace is steeped in gorgeous embellishments of giant banana leaves, tropical ferns and palm […]

This Year’s Brand New Summer Rooftops

Like pigeons, chimneys and cyclone victims, we can always be found up on a rooftop. And unlike the all above, we’re normally to be found clutching a glass of Champagne and enjoying one of the best views in the world as London stretches away beneath us. Here’s a link to a fuller guide...

Casa de Cuba Terrace, Jamaican Me Crazy!

Living among busy commuters, especially around the hustle and bustle of Oxford Circus, it’s not every day that we can enjoy soaking in the Cuban sun from across the other side of the globe. However, this is due to change, at least for the next few summer months. The Churchill Bar is transforming its award-winning terrace into a Cuban paradise so you too can step into Sir Winston Churchill’s adventurous shoes and enjoy a Cuban haven a little closer to home. From May 15th, The Churchill Bar unlocks its launch of ‘Casa de Cuba’ along with their transformed seasonal summer […]
