Elle: Five of the Best London May Openings

 Adam Bloodworth, the editor of Just Opened London, picks his top five openings this month. 

After the snowy spring, May finally brings a flurry of summery action: two of the capital's best rooftop bars burst into action, crazy golf steps it up a notch and a restaurant set to be one of the hottest openings of the year opens its doors. Be There First. 

The word 'Pergola' may dumbfound modern London audiences but keen on bringing the retro foliage installations back, Incipio events (Feast, Little Feast and Market Yard), have created an eating and drinking space under the cover of live plants on the roof of the iconic, ex-BBC Television Centre in White City. Expect summery cocktails and exclusive food menus from the likes of Salt Yard charcuterie, Patty & Bun burgers, rotisserie aficionados Le Coq and Chelsea foraged food (think plenty of wild meat and game) from Rabbit restaurant, Chelsea.
