Best Rooftop Bars in London

Here’s my top 10 of London rooftop terraces where you may very well catch me with a chilled glass of vino this summer!

1. Madison at One New Change

 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

The gigantic rooftop terrace at One New Change was my little secret for a long time when it just opened. It offers the best views over St. Paul’s Cathedral and pretty much the whole of London’s skyline – and it was always very quiet. These days the secret’s very much out and it does get very busy on sunny days . Madison Rooftop Bar One New Change London EC4M 9AF

2. Aqua Kyoto & Aqua Nueva Rooftop Bars

 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

Not only is Aqua Kyoto my ultimate favourite restaurant in London, it also boasts a pretty chic rooftop terrace. Great for pre-dinner or post-shopping drinks, incredible nibbles and relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of Regent Street and Oxford Street. Aqua Kyoto Rooftop Terrace 30 Argyll Street London W1B 3BR

3. Vista at the Trafalgar

 1304039731 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

Living in London I tend to avoid touristy spots. Trafalgar Square was pretty high up on my to-avoid-list, but since discovering the amazing Vista bar on top of the Trafalgar Hotel I seem to be heading that way a lot more… Vista At The Trafalgar Hotel 2 Spring Gardens Trafalgar Square London SW1A 2TS 1362002451 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

 

4. Dalston Roof Park

 2090417486 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

Just a couple of steps away from Dalston Kingsland station lies the Print House, which plays host to Dalston Roof Park in summer. It’s a slightly kitsch space with astroturf, coloured deckchairs and even a giant flamingo. Dalston Roof Park Print House 18 Ashwin St London E8 3DL  1046935471 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

 

5. Big Chill House

 1187762197 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

Perhaps I’m a little biased about this one, because I happen to live quite close to it, but the Big Chill House rooftop terrace is a wonderful little surprise just steps away from King’s Cross station. The Big Chill House 257-259 Pentonville Road London N1 9NL

6. Radio Rooftop Bar at ME Hotel

 1211890864 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

On the 1oth floor of the ME Hotel on The Strand sits the Radio Rooftop Bar ( and it is definitely the slickest, snazziest rooftop bar on this list. Fancy as it may be, the panoramic views over London are its ultimate selling point. Radio Rooftop Bar at ME London 336-337 The Strand London WC2R 1HA 301381752 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

 

7. Sushisamba

 915942553 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

If you’re scared of heights, this one may not be for you… Sushisamba’s rooftop terrace is on the 38th floor of the Heron Tower and possibly one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever visited. The main outdoor bar is based around a giant bronze tree 1187057467 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

 

8. Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden

 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

Southbank has a tendency to get a little bit crazy during summer days, and so a visit to the Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden is always a welcome break from the madness below. Just follow the bright yellow staircase to the top floor and you’ll be transported to a different world: it’s a real garden with allotments, fruit trees and wild flowers, boasts an incredible front-row view of the river. It also has a cafe/bar, and as it’s a public space you can also just bring your own picnic or drinks if you wanted to – or you could even do some gardening if you were so inclined. A real gem in an unexpected place. Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden at the Southbank Centre Belvedere Road London SE1 8XX 270848474 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

 

9. Queen Of Hoxton

 1813021848 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

The Queen of Hoxton’s rooftop is definitely one for the Shoreditch party people -there’s DJ’s, BBQ’s, a massive heated wigwam and a rumoured hottub for summer. Queen of Hoxton Rooftop   1-5 Curtain Road London EC2A 3JX 1348560505 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

 

10. Boundary

 260381266 Top 10 Rooftop Bars In London

In the heart of Shoreditch lies the Terence Conran designed Boundary Project – there’s The Albion cafe downstairs, Boundary restaurant in the basement, a boutique hotel above, and to top it all off, a rather fantastic rooftop terrace. It’s a great place for a sunny meal, surrounded by lots of green, as well as heaters and even a fireplace to keep you warm. It’s also a great alternative to members-only Shoreditch House next door – it may not have a rooftop pool, but then who really swims in it anyway? And if you’ve had one too many tipples, you can always just take a room in the hotel below. Win-win. Boundary Rooftop 2-4 Boundary Street London E2 7DD
