ARRIVALS

SIX OF THE BEST

Six of the best...

Rooftop venues in London

1

THE TRAFALGAR ST JAMES

The go-to central London rooftop,

the Trafalgar St James hotel’s

smart-yet-relaxed bar looks out

over Trafalgar Square. It’s a great

place for cocktails and there are

even cashmere blankets to keep

guests warm on chilly nights.

The glass-enclosed ‘Room’ is

available for private events.

THE BILTMORE, MAYFAIR

Set to become another sky-high

central London staple, the new

Biltmore hotel’s rooftop bar will

open in well-heeled Mayfair this

spring. The sheltered alfresco

terrace lets visitors take in the

sights whatever the weather.

12TH KNOT, SEA CONTAINERS,

SOUTHBANK

Part of the nautical-themed Sea

Containers hotel, this recently

revamped rooftop bar has a

playful design with space to host

receptions and cocktail parties

for up to 300 people.

VINTRY & MERCER’S ROOF

TERRACE, CITY

Named after two historic guilds

and nestled above the city’s

atmospheric old trade halls, the

roof terrace of the City’s newest

boutique hotel is full of charm

with a conservatory-style dining

space and a pretty bar leading to

a patio with views of St Paul's.

THE STRATFORD AT MANHATTAN

LOFT GARDENS, STRATFORD

The Stratford opens soon, and

with it a terraced restaurant

and garden, Allegra, on the 7th

floor. Higher up, there will be a

sheltered alfresco enclave on the

25th floor complete with fire pits,

barbecues and bar.

KING’S CROSS

Hip US brand Standard Hotels

is opening its London outpost

this spring. Three new storeys
