If stunning views are your thing then the Roof Garden is a must. Step onto their South-facing terrace and lap up the views that stretch across the city. With a terrace, hot tub and sun loungers it's not going to be hard for you and your date to get comfy, especially when you throw a couple of cocktails into the melting pot.
