On Top Of The World! 5 Stunning London Garden-Inspired Rooftop Bars

There aren’t too many downsides to living in one of the best cities in the world…particularly one with so much greenery as ol’ London has. But thanks to extortionate house prices and rent (as all good stories start), it’s rare that one manages to obtain a house/flat/cupboard with a rooftop. Or even a garden, for that matter. A plant haven of one’s own, where beers and sunshine is aplenty? HA! A likely story. Well, look no further our green-fingered friends. At these 5 garden-inspired rooftop bars, you can enjoy the smell of grass, the taste of beer…and no doubt, the feel of the sun on your face (for all of ten minutes…)

 

1. Orrery, Marylebone

Hidden above the streets of Marylebone is Orrery, Chelsea’s luxury French restaurant and a secret rooftop in what looks like a quaint Provençal garden. The epitome of elegance, Orrery is in the heart of charming Marylebone Village, featuring iconic arched windows and majestic views of our beloved London.

2. Babylon Roof Terrace

Babylon at The Roof Gardens is a super-stylish restaurant serving scrumptious cuisine and cocktails, with breath-taking views over London in their incredible rooftop garden setting. 100 feet above Kensington High Street. Looks like something out of a movie, right? We know. Thank us later 🙂 What’s more, on 28th May, the Late Night Cocktail Club are transforming the roof gardens for a fabulous 20’s themed Speakeasy Ball. You can buy tickets here.

 

3. Coq d’Argent

With a magnificent rooftop setting, Coq d’Argent has outstanding panoramic views across The Square Mile from its stunning roof gardens. Showcasing fine regional French cuisine and bistro-style classics, it is also a fine dining hotspot. And, at just a 2-minute walk from Bank Tube Station, it’s a real breath of fresh air in the centre of the City! You better believe it.

In addition to the incredible panorama of East London, Boundary Rooftop’s heated orangery is filled with a variety of Citrus trees including Lemon, Clementine, and Calamondin, as well as Mimosa trees. So, you can sip a mimosa…under a Mimosa. Bliss!

2-4 Boundary St, E2 7DD

 

5. Sky Garden

Last, but certainly not least, is London’s spectacular Sky Garden, designed to create an open and vibrant place of relaxation, away from the hubbub of the city, and offering visitors a rare chance to experience London from a different viewpoint. It’s a great place to get some garden inspiration despite being indoors. Which is helpful if it’s raining. Which it probably will be.
