Cool places in London
Now that summer has come to an end, we are all feeling a little under the weather (mostly due to the change in weather), but dont despair, there is still a chance for you to enjoy the open air with a drink in your hand! London is a lively city, and one of the biggest in the world, so we have compiled a list of the best outdorr / rooftop bars that you should pay a visit to on your next HomeExchange exchange...
Aqua Spirit, Regent Street
The interior of Aqua Spirit has a “Zen” type atmosphere with Japanese kimonos creating a beautiful backdrop to your evening cocktails. Located on Regent Street, the rooftop area of this bar offers views of London from perfect and peaceful surroundings. The bar offers two year-round terraces that act as the ideal spot to sit and watch the sunset with a drink in your hand, or cosy up in the inside bar.
Sushisamba, Liverpool Street
Sushisamba on Liverpool Street is definitely a popular spot in central London! Either you want to experience their glorious cuisine, or simply sit and enjoy a drink and the view – they offer something to cater to all types. With a Brazilian / Japanese vibe, expect it to be pretty crowded on the weekends full of people enjoying the view of the Heron Tower.
Frank’s Cafe + Campari Bar, Peckham
This is exclusively only open during summer months, but it is always sure to provide a good atmosphere with views over London. One can sit under a red canopy and enjoy a drink from a range of choice, such as explicit cocktails, prosecco or bottled beer. This is the perfect summer location for a chilled atmosphere!
The Boundary, Temple
This relatively new bar has become increasingly popular in recent months. They have incorporated a weatherproof peragloa which means that the bar can open in any kind of weather. There is also a new garden terrace which includes grape wines. What a perfect place to sit and enjoy a drink not only in the sunny weather, but even in the rain?
Queen of Hoxton, Shoreditch
Located in the famous Shoreditch, this expansive rooftop attracts a lively crowd most days of the week. In the summer months, the terrace is transformed into a Cuban themed bar with cocktails to fit the bill! If youre hesitant about joining the crowd here in the notably bad English weather, fear not, there is a semi-permanent cover which caters for all weather!
