With spring in full swing, it’s the perfect time to explore the best of London’s rooftop bars. From quirky renovated spaces to chic hotel bars, the warmer weather is a fantastic excuse to see London from a new angle while sipping a tipple or two.

Roof Fest at John Lewis, Oxford Circus

John Lewis’ flagship Oxford Circus store has recently revealed a vibrant new rooftop destination on London’s busiest shopping street. Enjoy respite from retail therapy and take in all that the venue has to offer. A Filipino-inspired BBQ will be serving flavoursome food, while beers, wines, cocktails and soft drinks can be found at the bar. A calendar of live music and fitness classes from fitness experts HEX are also available to book online, including sunrise yoga and HIIT classes designed to really get your blood pumping. For a special occasion, try booking one of the three ‘dens’: cosy, serene spaces perfect for a private celebration, each decorated in beautiful John Lewis designs.

Bar Elba

For laid-back rooftop drinks, Bar Elba in Waterloo is a brilliant choice. Named after Napoleon’s place of exile, the bar is an Instagram-lovers heaven, with brightly painted walls, fairy lights and delicious, colourful cocktails at every angle. When the weather gets hot, we recommend booking a table ahead of your visit – this place is known to create queues around the block!
