The Roof Gardens, West London
The renowned Roof Gardens venue in Kensington is just about as glam as they come. Its swish rooftop bar comes complete with a hearty array of BBQ’d food and awesome views of London. Pop by early to (hopefully) catch some rays and you might as well stay for the evening too; when a glamorous crowd congregate to throw some shapes long into the night.
Vestal Voyages, North London
Vestal Voyages is perfect for a spot of alfresco drinking this Bank Holiday Weekend. Grab a group of your closest mates and hop aboard the stunning 50 foot cruiser stern Liverpool canal boat, where a charming drinking experience awaits. Head on up to the deck, get comfy and cruise your way down the Regent’s Canal with a choice of delicious Vestal Vodka cocktails for company.
The Jam Tree Chelsea, West London
Jam Tree’s Garden is among the best in London. Profiting from all day sunshine, its own dedicated bar and a BBQ renowned for its hog roasts, it’s hard to leave once you’ve sat down and made yourself comfy. Come by early and kick things off with a few jam-infused cocktails in the garden before moving inside to cut a few shapes on the dance floor. Lovely stuff.
Honky Tonk Clapham Common, South London
New for 2014 is Honky Tonk’s Sundowner Terrace.

Queen of Hoxton, East London
The Queen of Hoxton is a top bar and club in its own right, but head on up to the Rooftop Summer Club to see the jewel in its crown. Perfect for bank holiday lazin’, stop by this Shoreditch gem for smoking BBQ burgers, fresh ginger beers and their notorious cocktail slushies. Enjoy the sun while its around, then throw yourself head first into their pumping rooftop party to mark a memorable bank holiday weekend (not literally).
Paradise By Way of Kensal Green, West London
Paradise is a truly top West London party spot. Its seriously stylish, but downright refuses to take itself too seriously; meaning you’re left with a slick venue with an easy-going vibe. Bank Holidays are a Paradise speciality, and they’ll be serving up their usual spread of delightful fresh food and drink in the day before staging a rousing party come evening time. Highly recommended.
Floridita, Central London
Pop by this cocktail bar, restaurant and live music venue in Soho for a Bank Holiday party with a bit of flair.
