Aqua Spirit
Location: 33 King Street, Covent Garden, WC2E 8JD
Nearest Tube: Regent Street
Our Thoughts: Dickens and Jones store off Regents Street, Aqua Spirit is a great little bar to visit for both pre and post dinner drinks. The restaurant is stylishly decorated and has stunning roof terraces that offer fantastic views across London.

Location: 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2N 4AY
Nearest Tube: Liverpool Street
Our Thoughts: There is a pretty impressive roof top bar open all year round on top of the Heron Tower at SushiSamba. The terrace has a beautiful tree with a circular bar surrounding this which at night time looks absolutely stunning.

Location: 2 Spring Gardens, London, SW1A 2TS
Nearest Tube: Trafalgar Square
Our Thoughts: Situated on the roof of the Trafalgar Hotel this bar has impressive views of Nelson’s Column, Big Ben and the London Eye. There is an entry fee and drinks can be expensive so one to “impress” rather than for a quick after work drink.

Radio Roof Top Bar
Location: 336-337 Strand, London WC2R 1HA
Nearest Tube: Temple
Our Thoughts: Radio Rooftop Bar situated in the ME Hotel is one of central London’s prime rooftop drinking destinations. This bar has spectacular views overlooking such iconic buildings as Tower Bridge, The Shard London Bridge, St. Paul’s Cathedral as well as the Southbank and Covent Garden’s theatre district. The cocktails are also out of this world!

Coq d’Argent
Location: 1 Poultry, London EC2R 8EJ
Nearest Tube: Bank
Our Thoughts: Coq d’Argent roof top bar is something very special in the heart of the City. It even has it’s own lawn! In the summer it is a great choice for alfresco dining with fantastic views across London as well as some very delicious French food.
