The Roof Gardens

Meander through the gardens among flamingos and exotic plants whilst BBQ foods are cooked up on the regs and day parties see DJs take you dancing into the night.

City of London

Taking residence atop of a multi-storey car park, Franks Cafe & Campari Bar is your classic city-scape space of gritty, industrial style but a view that more than makes up for it. Far from your typical cocktail bar in London, minimalist and mostly made of concrete materials, Franks is all about kicking back, enjoying live music, great drinks and colourful skies.
