Rooftop Bars Arriving Just In Time For The Summer!

Rooftop Bars Arriving Just In Time For The Summer!

The weather is properly ON! There are people wandering the streets of Balham dressed for Bondi, we’re wearing flip flops in the office and the shops are running dangerously low on ice cream. As soon as you bust out of work, you’re going to need a plan that involves a rooftop bar. Thankfully there’s no shortage, but here are few opening or reopening in London this month.

Angler

What: Pastoral Paradise

Why: Let’s not beat around the botanical bush, G&Ts are, undoubtedly, best enjoyed on a rooftop terrace of some sort. Kudos are therefore given where deserved to South Place Hotel’s Angler terrace for their 7th floor sun drenched haven and collaboration with artisanal spirits brand, the Cotswolds Distillery. A limited-edition cocktail selection will be available for your perusing pleasure, featuring the Cotswold G&T, as well as The Hedgerow Martini. Good news for those eager to grab an insta, or two – the terrace will be awash with fragrant flowers and foliage to partner with the English country, blossoming cocktail theme.

Selfridges

Bond Street (0.2 miles)

What: Alto by San Carlo

Why: Replacing the longstanding relationship with restauranteur Des McDonald, San Carlo have wrestled control of this iconic rooftop and the result should be pretty decent. The restaurant group have been running restaurants for Selfridges for a while, but now they’ve acquired the crown jewell, we should expect good things. The Italian restaurant, accessed via express lift, opens with a floral installation littered with chinotto fruit. Pass through into the restaurant with its retractable roof and drinking terrace and sample the menu which will include a roasted shellfish sharer for two of king prawns, scallops, mussels, clams and langoustines or fillet of seabass cooked in black volcanic salt from Sicilly’s Mount Etna, and truffle and pecorino ravioli.

Where: Selfridges, Oxford Street, London, United Kingdom

Jin Bo Law

Aldgate (0.1 miles)

What: Dorsett And The City

Why: The soaring towers of the city are best viewed from a height, and you can do just that, and outdoors too, at the new sky bar at Jin Bo Law. Literally hot off the press (it launched the other day), this place is super smooth and kitted out for hot weather with a long terrace. Topping off the new Dorsett City London hotel this is the quintessential rooftop terrace.
Just opened!

Where: 14th Floor Dorsett City, 9 Aldgate High Street, London EC3N 1AH

Social Fun & Games Club at Roof East

What: Roof East Is East

Why: The massive Roof East is reopening in Stratford just in time for the bank holiday weekend. The former carpark upper floor is opposite Stratford Station and Westfield shopping centre, so perfect for access and shopping! Visitors will probably notice the circus theme, thanks to SFG Club who have dressed the whole openair space out with bell-tents and jugglers, but the real entertainment is in the form of a new-look Birdies mini-golf course, Sluggers batting cages and hip-hop bowls plus, of course, the food and drink options. Foodwise, Jimmy Garcia will be in attendance offering with offering seaside classics including fish and chips, surf and turf and halloumi fries.
Opens on Friday 3rd May

Where: Floors 7 & 8, Stratford Multi Storey Car Park Great Eastern Way, Stratford, E15 1XE

Website: www.roofeast.com

Pergola Paddington Central

What: Padding-Sun

Why: Pergola Paddington Central is set to reopen on April 26th  and we for one (if that’s grammatically acceptable) can’t wait. Pergola (pronounced PERG-o-la, not as one unnamed colleague insists on calling it per-GO-la) was born out West with their rooftop hit in Shepherd’s Bush, and have now transferred their efforts to Paddington for alfresco fun in sun. Burger specialists Patty & Bun will be there with all ovens blazing, as will DF Mexico, Canard and Vietnamese barbecuers MAM.
Opens Thursday 26th April 

Where: 5 Kingdom Street, London W2 6PY

Skylight Rooftop Tobacco Dock

What: From Roof Rink To Summer Sun

Why: It only feels like yesterday that we were skating on the roof at Skylight at Tobacco Dock, and now we’re getting ready for a summer lineup overlooking the London skyline. Expect a lineup of the usual three floors of bars and street food plus live entertainment, croquet, pétanque, big screens, DJs. The whole caboodle comes on Friday 3rd May and we’re fully expecting that the East London venue won’t disappoint.
Opens Friday 3rd May

Where: Tobacco Dock, Pennington Street entrance, St Katharine's & Wapping, E1W 2SF

Website: www.skylightlondon.com

White City House

White City House

What: Pool Your Resources

Why: Soho House has opened yet another brilliant looking outpost to their ever-spreading empire, this time in West London’s Television Centre. Set over multiple storeys and boasting restaurants, gym, a subterranean pool and even a cinema. But it’s the rooftop that sets this opening apart, with a stunning rooftop pool and bar.
Slated to open ‘Spring 2018’, so soon, presumably
