Rooftop review roundup: So, technically at the moment this shouldn’t be classed as a rooftop as whilst being on top of a car Park they have a roof. Plans for it to be retractable are stuck with planning permissions. However that said I am including as it feels like a rooftop, light and sunny. Tho also like a greenhouse! There are fans but in super hot days it would πŸ₯΅. This was my first trip to this rooftop and post Covid and was impressed with the Organization – track and trace details taken on arrival, one way system, online menus and we had an entire booth to ourselves. Its definitely made for groups so we would never normally have had a booth – so some positives. Floral green decoration it is an insta haven like its sister rooftop below. The party vibe was still in swing despite the new rules though it’s definitely more for the risk adverse with a young crowd.

Rooftop review roundup: Cute little terrace – sadly lacking many in this gorgeous part of London. Chill with some bubbles in a booth for catch ups – though it closes at 9pm which is a shame on those summer nights. Nevertheless a firm fav!

Warm/dry weather only? No – heaters and umbrellas plus there’s an indoor area if it wanted the height but not the frosty bite!

Rooftop review roundup: A much needed rooftop for the area. Despite the lack of views it’s in a prime location for footie, music and shopping fans with the iconic Wembley Stadium moments away and set in the heart of the designer outlet. Staff are ridiculously friendly and helpful and currently it’s all about the cava in glamorous white bottles and matching glasses!

Rooftop review roundup: A treasure trove in west London and a welcomed addition for when it’s hot hot hot in the city. It is a private members club so you do need to either be a member or know one who can sign and accompany you in but really welcoming people. The members tend to be the media crowd having meetings, networking or working from this luxury! The poolside though is strictly no laptops in the day – very much down time fun but get there early on a heat wave as the pool is standing room only!
