Nudge nudge, wink wink: this Madame will show you a good time on the terrace

This kitsch, cutesy rooftop promises a raucous garden party in the heart of the city. Decked out with AstroTurf, parasols and pastel-pretty timber furniture, this sky-high hub has long been a favourite for summer sessions that kick off in the afternoon and end after midnight. Flirty staff kitted out in butt-skimming tennis gear ferry pitchers of fruity cocktails around the terrace.

The tongue-in-cheek drinks list doesn't skimp on the double entendre, with plenty of mention of jugs, balls and oral pleasure. Yep. The Madame seems intent on making you blush, but chances are that rosy glow will be thanks to the sunshine and booze-sloshed cocktails. Share a jug of the Madame's Fruity Double D Cups, which switches Maidenii vermouth in place of Pimms for a twist on the classic punch. Continue the garden party theme with sausage rolls, chicken sandwiches and raspberry cupcakes.
