At a certain time of year, Londoners start pretending they're in Cannes and begin a season of partying hard on the waves. There are all kinds of brilliant London boat parties taking place, so find your sea-legs, learn your port from your starboard and hit one of these nautical but nice events.
London’s best rooftop parties
Located on Greek Street, Club 49 proves a popular choice with the Soho crowd. Upstairs is a main bar with a VIP area, while downstairs hosts the dance floor with its regular live music and DJ nights. It's mostly about the entertainment here, with cocktail orders keeping the party crowd well-oiled - think classics like mojitos, moscow mules, mai tais and manhattans and you won't go far wrong. There's a varied selection of martinis on offer too, as well as beers by the bottle and a short wine list visiting the old world and new. Those looking to soak up the booze with some food can tuck into bar bites with a Lebanese bent. If you're booking a party then you can pre-order canapés and platters for the group.
