There’s no better way to enjoy summer than on a rooftop terrace. Here’s our pick of the best bars across the city where you can take in those skyline views

STK, Stratford

For an afternoon filled with panoramic skyline views accompanied by DJ sets and entertainment, STK Stratford is the place to be this summer. Every Saturday from 11.30am to 3pm, the steakhouse and bar will be offering a three-course brunch menu for just £49 per person, with bottomless packages starting from an additional £28 each. From California rolls and pumpkin ravioli to roasted salmon and short ribs, the Vibe Brunch menu offers a lot more than just steak. And if you haven’t tried STK’s infamous mini sliders, worry not: they’re on the menu, too. If you’re looking for good tunes, great food and a gorgeous view, STK is always a stellar choice.

Coq d’Argent, Bank

This gorgeous rooftop restaurant is one of London’s most iconic. Offering a sophisticated al fresco dining experience with four terraces and a rooftop garden, Coq d’Argent provides a truly dreamy summer setting. Here, you can enjoy a menu of exquisite French cuisine, curated by executive head chef Damien Rigollet, while soaking up the urban charm of the capital. We all know that it tends to get chilly in England (even in August), but the restaurant is well prepared for the cold, with covered and heated terraces.

The Maine, Mayfair

The Maine Mayfair’s newly launched terrace is the perfect spot for mid-shopping refreshment, a lazy lunch or evening drinks.

Located on the 16th floor of Treehouse Hotel London, The Nest is a sophisticated and lively bar that’s ideal for weekend outings or after-work drinks in summer. Offering incredible 360-degree views of the city, it boasts hanging plants, raffia light fixtures and gorgeous reclaimed wood, making it a perfect spot for a photo or two.

The Standard, King’s Cross

If you’re looking for a terrace that’s effortlessly cool, there’s no better place than The Standard. The hotel itself has several unique bars that offer indulgent cocktails and bustling atmospheres, but the rooftop is really where your sunset soiree plans should be. Recently reopened, it offers fabulous views, fun drinks and great music. This stylish spot has a more casual atmosphere than some of the others on this list, but it’s coupled with a huge helping of good vibes.

Inventive cocktails are the vibe here, with a menu inspired by London’s diverse history and cultures — with an East London twist, of course.

Glasshouse Rooftop, Holborn

Despite being another gorgeous rooftop located on the top of a hotel, Glasshouse is by no means regular. This exclusive 10th-floor bar features bold decor and statement neon artwork, as well as a retracting roof so you can soak up the sun — when it does come out — and a soundtrack of laid-back electronic beats. Once evening comes, Glasshouse takes on a relaxed ambiance and provides the perfect backdrop for enjoying creative cocktails under the stars.
