Roof top bars
Enjoy the last drops of summer, the last of the light evenings. Grab a roof top bar experience whilst you can! London has some really special venues, we’ve picked our 3 favourites.
Vintage Salt. This quirky ‘British Seaside’ bar is housed on the 5th floor of Selfridges. The terrace is as bright and bold as the British seaside and G&T cocktails are served in teacups. Great fun. Open 11am-11pm until late September.
Queen Elizabeth Roof Garden and Café. This hidden gem stands high above London’s South Bank giving spectacular views. It’s a hidden away terrace attached to The Queen Elizabeth Centre’s Café and is adorned with grass, wild flowers and even fruit trees – all very welcome amongst the concrete of the South Bank! Open 10am-10pm until late September.
The Bloom Gin Rooftop bar at Vista. Nestled at the top of The Trafalgar hotel in Trafalgar Square this chic venue has impressive views – Nelson’s Column, The London Eye and Big Ben. However, there is an entry fee, drinks are pricey and you can’t book tables after 5pm. However, the views are pretty impressive! Open noon-11pm until 30th September.
