Londoners love a rooftop bar. They’re the best places to escape the claustrophobic heat of the city and they provide a brilliant skyline backdrop for drinking – especially at sundown. And now, we love them even more. Outdoor spaces have been deemed the safest for socialising as London unlocks this summer. As such, expect London’s best rooftop bars to be in more demand than ever.
We’ve got the lowdown on exactly which sky-high bars have reopened and will keep you updated as even more places share info on welcoming back customers for a drink to remember. It’s going to be a little bit different: most bars will now take advance bookings and expect table service for those cocktails and beers. For any other safety details, check with venues in advance of your visit. But otherwise, cheers to a summer of getting up on the roof.
