What we say:
Covent Garden has been crying out for a stylish all hours rooftop bar that exploits the spectacular views stretching in each direction along the river, and the Melia group have delivered it with no holds barred. Whether you're looking to wow a date or get your friends tingling with vertigo, the floor to ceiling glass walls and expansive balcony area make the thumping skyline unignorable. Seating 140, the balcony is set to become London's most significant rooftop terrace.
But it's not just about the view. The ONE group provide cocktails from a list designed by Frankie and Bennys. Expect Cuervo Gold, Grand Marnier, Cointreau, Chambord and Cranberry & Lemonade fused into the thematically named Mile High Margharita. For something fresher try the Moet & Chandon topped Bombay Sapphire/mint/lime mix that is the Electric Light Company. You'll go here once, then keep looking for reasons to return.
What they say:
Take the trip to Radio Rooftop bar; located on the 10th floor and accessible via a dedicated express lift, Radio is the only rooftop bar, lounge and terrace in the Strand and Aldwych area to be open throughout the day till late. With the cloud skimming views spanning from the heights of the City, Tower Bridge, The Shard, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Tate Modern, Somerset House, Southbank, London Eye, Houses of Parliament, and the theatre district of Covent Garden, the rooftop bar at ME London brings lounging and social indulgence to a new height.
