Words by Quintessentially

Head up and out this summer with these sky-high offerings.

The Roof Gardens
99 Kensington High Street

This venue certainly has the wow factor. For anyone wanting to party in style, The Roof Gardens is a must visit. Set 100ft above High Street Kensington, this rooftop restaurant-cum-bar has impressive panoramic views across West London and boasts a stunning themed garden complete with oak trees and a stream - in addition to its own flock of flamingos. We recommend going for tasty grilled meats, views, and the great parties they host.

Radio Bar at ME Hotel
336-337 The Strand

Think ultra-chic French Riviera vibes at the rooftop bar at London's ME hotel. The extensive terrace wraps around both sides of an arrow-shaped Radio bar and is equipped with smart monochrome L-shaped sofas, space heaters, and large candles. The rooftop has breath-taking views of Big Ben, the London Eye, and a host of other impressive British landmarks. The bar attached to this is also worth bragging about; think 'Sex and the City' – a destination hub for the glamorous long-legged model types and gorgeously groomed city slickers.

Aqua Bar
240 Regent Street

Aqua bar is most definitely one of the coolest and trendiest places to see and be seen. Set on top of the iconic former Dickens and Jones Store on Regent Street, the bar offers one of the finest drinking and dining destinations in London. The rooftop has stunning views over Soho and Mayfair and is the perfect spot for al fresco dining. The drinks list offers classic cocktails such as New York sources and vesper martinis alongside house creations like the Nueva cobbler - a concoction of Tío Pepe sherry, fresh blackberries and raspberries muddled with vanilla sugar and a slice of orange.

Boundary Shoreditch
2-4 Boundary Street

The new roof terrace at the Boundary in Shoreditch has a swanky glass-cased roof which protects against all weathers, allowing for drinking and eating all year round. The garden design includes a gorgeous canopy of grape producing vines together with a subtle garrigue and other horticultural enhancements. This is also a perfect venue for private dining and events.

Rumpus Room
20 Upper Ground

The Rumpus Rooms is a swish boutique rooftop bar and lounge at the Mondrian London. The décor is inspired by the Bright Young things, who were a voracious pleasure-seeking band of bohemian party-goers and blue-blooded socialites in the 1920s. Rumpus Rooms evokes a sense of this era, a time when a party was more than a party – it was a lifestyle. This a popular joint among many celebrities not only for the spectacular views of the Thames but for the cool and trendy décor. Guests can also expect to find some of the world's best champagne offerings and cocktails created by the resident mixologist Mr Lyan.
