Is it just us or has every trip out of the house felt like a gift in the last few months? A meal out now feels like a taste of heaven. One sip of a cold pint? Gold dust. And a view over London? Well, that’s just the icing on the cake.
Winter is slowly creeping up on us, so while we’re still able to savour some summer sun, we thought we’d give you a run-down of London’s best rooftop bars. Grab a drink, bring your mates, and take it all in:
Netil 360 is East London’s hippest Rooftop – it’s the type of chilled out venue that could have only been founded by a carpenter/designer. All the furniture has been created from scratch and there’s a returnable cup system meaning no single use plastic. All seating is available on a first come, first served basis so make sure to get out fairly early to soak up those blue skies and summer vibes.
For a bit more of a bougie offering, check out Pergola Olympia. With panoramic views, heaters if it gets nippy and plants everywhere – it’s perfect for the gram. It’s also got three self-service restaurants to cater to every taste, from BBQ grub to Asian fusion. You can check out the menus here.
Big Chill Kings Cross
If you’re a certified chiller, we’d recommend the Big Chill, Kings Cross. It’s bottomless brunch offers free flowing passionfruit spritz, bloody marys and prosecco along with some irresistible bites including fresh toast. Or you can enjoy the view during the week with their £8.50 burger lunch deal. Eat your heart out.
Lost in Brixton
Get lost in this hidden paradise in the heart of Brixton. Enjoy Latin American inspired cocktails, craft beers and delicious food from Brixton village delivered to your table. Sheltered from the elements, this leafy haven is also a safe bet if the forecast isn’t on your side. You can book here.
From open-air brunch to an outdoor cinema, Bar Elba has got you covered. Based in the heart of Waterloo, it’s views are breath-taking and it offers Happy Hour 2 for 1 cocktails Monday-Thursday. To top it all off, it’s continuing Rishi’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme throughout September. Get involved.
