With Summer beginning to make an appearance in London, it’s definitely worth knowing where the rooftop bar hotspots are in the capital. Pergola Paddington is one of our absolute favourites, a hidden gem situated high above west London, making it the perfect place to enjoy food and drink with the sun on your face and incredible views. Pergola has opened once again for the summer, giving you a fantastic place to relax on weekends right the way through to October!

The ‘Pergola Way’ is pretty simple, the venues are free to attend and free to reserve a table online for groups of 4 to 199! You can also just turn up on the day if there’s less than 4 of you in a group as they hold back a few tables each night for walk-ins, but do bear in mind that everything operates on a first come first served basis.
This hidden alfresco garden and rooftop seats 850 people with 7 giant day beds, so as you can imagine the vibe is buzzing! Food and drink from all 5 restaurants and 2 bars is self-service, so regardless of the size of your group you can all choose to have something different yet share the same table. Pretty chill. Food choices include deliciously juicy burgers from Patty & Bun, duck dishes from Canard, and tasty tacos from DF/Mexico. Feast your eyes on the full menu in advance here.
Set over two floors, Pergola Paddington is a secret hideaway in the heart of West London’s busiest business district. The ground floor is 80% covered, just in case of pesky rain showers, and the top floor is totally outdoors for all-day enjoyment.
When the sun sets, the fun continues! DJ’s perform into the night, the beer keeps on rolling, and food is served until late. We think all of this makes Pergola Paddington one of the most delicious date night spots in the city.
Pergola Paddington is also a great spot for families to enjoy during the day. Children are welcome at Pergola until 5pm, however due to licensing restrictions all under 18’s must be off the premises after this time.
So what are you waiting for, folks? Make your reservation here and kick-start the summer fun!
