What is it? Okay, it’s not been your average jet-setting year, but you can still recreate some posh holiday vibes on the seventh floor of glossy hotel The Stratford.
Why go? Yes, the bar and terrace of Allegra restaurant have views across to Westfield Stratford, but once you discover the joy of its deckchairs that slip around on rails among the wildflowers and water features, well, you might as well be sitting under the Provençal sun. Just bring your coat!
Open for bookings: Tue-Wed, 4pm-11pm; Thu-Sat noon-11pm; Sun noon-5pm.
