CENTRAL

AQUA, OXFORD STREET

Spanish & Japanese | Ba-Bou | NR
This chic rooftop (or rooftops shall I say – they have x2) pulls in a diverse crowd as it’s just off Oxford Street. The food is very average, so it’s more of a drinking spot but should you get peckish, they do have snacks available. Each terrace can hold up to 100 ppl.

CECCONIS, MAYFAIR

Italian | Bougie | RR | £££££
This famous Italian spot has a grand layout (owned by the Caprice Group unsurprisingly) with a few seats outside where you can dine, drink and watch the Mayfair passers-by.

EAST

BOUNDARY ROOFTOP, SHOREDITCH

Mediterranean | Ba-Bou | NR | £££
I’ve only ever dined in the main restaurant inside The Boundary but it has a famed rooftop which is really pretty – strangely I’ve never made it up here to eat. Need to change that asap. There’s a proper dining area and a drinks bit; you can book to eat but not to drink.

WEST

CHILTERN FIREHOUSE, MARYLEBONE

American | Ba-Bou | NR
Good bar snacks & excellent drinks coming out of André Balazs celeb haunt. I haven’t tried the main fare so can only recommend the snacks – the chicken sticks are fab, FYI. There’s a lovely large outdoor terrace that’s perfect for a hot summer’s day.

SOUTH

BEAUFOURT HOUSE, CHELSEA

International | Ba-Bou | W&R
Nice bright refined venue. They’ve got big windows which they swing open when the sun decides to treat us to some heat. However, the food is somewhat mediocre food, so best for drinks but you’ll probs need to get some nibbles to justify your seat.

BLUEBIRD, CHELSEA

Outdoor | Ba-Bou | NR | ££
This Chelsea mainstay has a wonderfully buzzy terrace and really comes into its own during the summer especially during Wimbledon when they always put on some display. You will have to queue, so try and get there early. You can eat, drink or do both. Food is decent.

NORTH

GERMAN GYMNASIUM

German | Ba-Bou | W&R | £££
This decadent Grand Cafe restaurant opposite King’s Cross station has a terrace. Food is OK – you go for the looks really. So, whilst it’s really more of a dining spot than a drinking den, I doubt they’ll shoo you away.
