Not confined to stuffy pubs and bars at ground level, London’s drinkers are taking to the roofs to soak in the sights and sounds the city has to offer. Guest blogger Scott Wood guides us around some of the best rooftop drinking spots in the capital.
The Boundary, Shoreditch
Ideal for a lazy Sunday, the space is fitted out with comfy padded seating areas, warming log fire, festoon lighting andcosy Welsh blankets.
The space also boasts a full kitchen and bar – a must-see when the weather is good. Book in advance to avoid disappointment as the place gets very popular during the warmer months.
Kensington Roof Gardens
Purchased by Sir Richard Branson in 1981, the Kensington Roof Gardens sits one hundred feet above Kensington High Street and offer a fantastic place to drink and dine, when the sun is shining.
Sit back and enjoy a professionally made cocktail, some fine food from the highly trained chefs and watch the resident flamingos (Bill, Ben, Splosh and Pecks) tip toeing around the pond.
