Pergola Paddington

Festoon lighting, street food and cocktails are just the beginning at this gorgeous rooftop bar in West London. A favourite for date nights and casual catch-ups with mates, Pergola Paddington is also as much of a hoot when evening strikes and the heaters are on high.

Make your way over to Skylight Tobacco Dock to cosy up in one of its many igloo bubbles and mountain huts. You can also indulge in street food washed down with wintery cocktails or have a go on the rooftop ice rink. But if you're south of the river? Skylight Peckham will be equally as festive.
