Barchick: A sky-high playground

A sky-high playground with killer drinks, awesome food and all the wine you need to put you into a summer haze, even if the sun’s not playing ball. We’re in.  Did we mention it’s all set under a huge canopy of flowers with 170ft high views across London? Your Instagram’s in too.

This boozy sky-high haven is on top of the old BBC Television Centre out West. You can tuck into cocktails and work through some of London’s best street food from bad boy street stalls Rabbit, Salt Yard, Patty & Bun and LeCoq.  It’s the stuff summer dates should be made of.

Then go work it off on the boules pitches… tip: you get better at it the more you drink. BarChick’s kind of sport.

If it’s a scorcher call your whole crew and rent out a day bed – they fit ten people.  Why not throw in a bath tub filled with chilled rose? You know it’s time.  It’s probably more likely to be raining but don’t let it spoil the fun, there’s a retractable roof to save the day.  Nothing should get between you and a bath full of wine.
