14 Hills has brought a whole lot of style to the sky.

Just below The Garden at 120, on the fourteenth floor of Fen Court and across the road from the Walkie Talkie, sits the unfailingly fabulous 14 Hills restaurant. Composed of the most aesthetic interiors, a lively late night bar and unparalleled views over London, it really is a pretty hot spot. And now, it’s jumping on the outdoor dining trend with a brand new al fresco terrace, set to open on April 12.

There are a whole host of amazing things about this restaurant, and that’s before we even get to the roof terrace. The first thing we need to talk about are the unreal interiors, even though we won’t be seeing them again until May. Warm and almost tropical, as soon as you walk into 14 Hills you’re sure to feel utterly indulged. The plush furnishings delicately contrast the wild explosions of lush greenery, while gentle lighting complements the touches of gold that flicker about the room. Basically, it’s about as Instagrammable as a puppy wearing a Santa hat at Christmas.

Now there’s no point going somewhere pretty to eat if the food isn’t great, but thankfully, 14 Hills’ ridiculously talented Head Chef Thomas Piat has side stepped that issue for you. Creating an exquisite range of menus, which simultaneously showcase the best of British produce while embracing an elegant French influence, the food champions flavour and quality – as all the best do.

Even if you’re not that peckish, we recommend popping into 14 Hills anyway and trying some of the glorious cocktails being served up at the bar. Experimenting with local ingredients and daring flavour combinations, Bar Manager Leandro Conti is serving up some of the most original concoctions in the capital.

If all of that wasn’t going to be enough to secure their place in our hearts as one of London’s luxury food locations, 14 Hills also take brunch very seriously. We’re talking ‘Winter Black Truffle and Scrambled Egg on Toasted Brioche’ and ‘Vanilla & Cinnamon French Toast with Passion Fruit and Ice Cream’. So, feel free to consider your weekends covered from now on, or at least until you’ve tried everything on the menu.

Finally, the roof terrace. It’s the first time 14 Hills have even had an al fresco dining experience since opening, and they’re starting boldly. The rooftop terrace sits on the fifteenth floor, and will boast 360 degree views across London, with The Shard, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, and more all in your eyeline. It’ll also be blessed by the flowers and trees of The Garden at 120, quite the looker itself. You’ll be able to settle in for all-day drinking and dining between 11am and midnight, although with only 50 spaces available, you’ll need to book yourself a place pretty quickly.

From breakfast to boujee end-of-the-night-cocktails, 14 Hills is serving endless taste sensations in some of the city’s most gorgeous surroundings. Watch the sun rise or fall over London and lounge about in this beautiful restaurant.
