5 of the Best Rooftop Hangouts




One of our favourite hangout spots no matter what time of year. Pergola on the roof provides the perfect setting on a Paddington rooftop for evening drinks or a meal that will keep you warm all night long. 4 of Londons best restaurants are coming to Pergola on the roof this Winter, Patty & Bun, DF/Mexico, Tonhotsu and Made of Dough offering the gourmet range to tickle anyones taste buds. This vast rooftop terrace comes to life when full of people and is the perfect venue to celebrate away the Christmas Season.




This venue in the heart of Kensington has been a prominent location for years and will be for years to come. Owned by the fun loving Richard Branson there was never any doubt this venue would offer only good times and it is unique in the decadence this rooftop garden offers. You will get lost in fantasy as soon as you walk into the gardens. This venue has an award winning restaurant, Babylon to dine in before you dance the night away sipping on your favourite cocktails.




The Rumpus room at the Mondrian London is all the talk of the Town. With its prestige location sitting directly on the river Thames you could spend the evening overlooking London forgetting entirely that you had company. A DJ will takes charge of the evening Thursday - Saturday and live music is performed on Wednesday evening so there is always a buzz no matter what day of the week. Enjoy food and cocktail from their British American inspired menu and watch London come to life through winter.




There is no doubt your Christmas adventure will bring you close to Oxford street this winter; to take in the spectacular lights, amongst the masses enjoying this festive time; and of course, Il Tetto. Hidden away in the rooftop of Selfridges this Italian Al Fresco style veranda is the perfect spot to escape for a moment and enjoy a meal constructed by head Chef Des McDonald with a perfect balance of boldness and simplicity.

Situated on the door steps of St. Pauls Cathedral this rooftop city venue offers a Manhattan style experience from 12 noon until late. The menu offers succulent flavours across the grill, including your usual staple of burgers, rich salads and a hearty collection of slow cooked classics. The heated terrace offers the perfect spot this winter for cocktails no doubt catching the occasional Christmas carol coming from St. Paul’s.
