One more step – just one more step. Keep telling yourself that, and eventually you’ll reach the top of the stairs and emerge onto the snug planked terrace that is Coop D’Etat. The wood decking, benches and oversized parasols give the impression of a cross between a pub garden and a pop-up urban beach – no mean feat, given you're five storeys up in the midst of one of the city's busiest districts. When the sun is out, you’ll struggle to find a more relaxed and congenial vibe in the city, not to mention a sweeter view of the skyline. When it isn't, indoor seating ensures you have somewhere to sip that cocktail. And at night, the DJs turn out and the party starts.
