Frank’s Cafe

This is Peckham’s most popular summer-only bar, rather unglamorously perched on a multi-storey car park. However, it has gained such a cult status that its reopening heralds the start of summer. It obviously gets very busy on hot days, so expect to queue for a short while.

Situated in Soho, this rooftop bar started as a community allotment but has since snowballed into a multi-faceted events space with deck chairs dotting the artificial grass, a dedicated bar, bands and DJ’s.

Sushima Bar

This fantastic bar is in Bishopsgate and is on the thirty-eighth floor of the City’s Heron Tower. It is named the Tree Bar thanks to the gorgeous lit tree at its centre which attracts crowds like Rio Carnival.

Radio Rooftop Bar

This rooftop bar is situated on the 10th floor of the Strand ME hotel. It has striking views across the river Thames and London’s skyline. The rooftop is accessible via a dedicated express lift from the ground floor of the hotel.

Big Chill House
