The Spaces: 7 of the best rooftop bars in London this summer

London is upping its game when it comes to rooftop bars and restaurants. To help you make the most of those elusive but precious rays, we’ve hopped across the capital to bring you the finest. Among them are new offerings for 2017, as well as old favourites that have woken up from hibernation, refreshed and reopened for alfresco drinking and dining.

Pergola on the Roof has returned to White City for its second instalment, taking styling tips from the Hamptons. The London rooftop bar and restaurant is kitted out with white-washed wood, decking, palm trees and plenty of seafood and rosé. Food is from London favourites like Patty & Bun and 8 Hoxton Square. This year the Pergola team is also launching a spin-off on 24 May: Pergola Paddington Central, self-service dining, two bars set over two levels, DJs at the weekend and a ‘high line bridge’.
