Summer has made an unexpected return and we’re in for a hot, sizzling few days! Here’s where to cool off with 10 Outdoor Terraces in London For The Sizzling Bank Holiday Weekend.
The Courtyard Fulham
Somewhat of a hidden gem, the Aperol Spritz outdoor garden at The Courtyard Fulham gets full-on boozy with bottomless brunch on the weekends complete with DJ on the decks. There’ll be lots of that going on this bank holiday weekend. Plenty of spots for Instagram pics, high stools and cosy booths, and an outdoor bar to take full advantage of their awesome cocktail list.
Shangri-La at The Shard – Bar 31 and Tanqueray Gin Summer Terrace
This hot spot is perfect if you’re spending the weekend sightseeing in the capital. Enjoy a Tanqueray Gin cocktail menu at The Shard’s number one neighbourhood bar – Bar 31. Cool off with the Tanqueray No. TEN Royal Blush cocktail and feast upon picnic boxes which contain everything you’ll need to soak up those drinks!
One of THE coolest hangouts this summer has to be Savage Garden located on the roof of the DoubleTree by Hilton in Tower Hill. With stupendously good and inventive cocktails, spectacular rooftop views and feasting boards to keep you full and happy, lap up the party vibes with their resident DJ as the temperatures sky rocket. As if that’s not enough, it’s 2-4-1 on cocktails all day on Sunday 25th and Monday 26th August, with live music on Sunday 4-7pm.
Monkey 47 Gin Lavender Terrace at Blakes Hotel
Blakes Hotel in South Kensington have teamed up with Monkey 47 Gin for delicious cocktails which can be enjoyed on their outdoor terrace. On arrival at the hotel, you’ll be greeted by the most beautiful lavender field installation, while the theme continues onto the terrace too. A gorgeous place to soak up the rays (and cocktails) this weekend.
Dalloway Terrace’s New ‘Summer Estate’
Ramsbury (makers of Ramsbury Gin and Vodka) have teamed up with Dalloway Terrace for a beautiful summer makeover. The English floral installation includes wild daisies and delphiniums from Nikki Tibbles Wild at Heart, while there’s a de-lish new all day brunch menu to enjoy as you down refreshing cocktails.
Fentiman’s Secret Spritz Garden
Fentiman’s Secret Spritz Garden is a hidden hideaway in Farringdon – a botanical garden of beauty from the mixer makers themselves. Enjoy mouth watering cocktails, foliage, a stunning fountain and rock out on the romantic swing seat, while basking in bank holiday summer vibes.
Sanderson London’s Berners Street Terrace with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE Limited Edition English Estate
Always one of the coolest central London hangouts, as the bank holiday weekend hots up, you’ll want to bask in Sanderson London’s tranquil garden. The Berners Street Terrace has teamed up with BOMBAY SAPPHIRE’s Limited Edition English Estate for delicious gin cocktails such as English Summer Time and Hampshire Tonic.
The Little Blue Door’s Gin Terrace
Another Fulham hotspot (why not make a day of it and check out The Courtyard Fulham on the same day?!), The Little Blue Door is South West London’s version of its yellow sibling in Notting Hill. With an indoor botanical astroturf conservatory (the pefect retreat for when temperatures get too hot outside), you can while away the bank holiday on their pretty terrace outside which has been transformed along with independent distillers William Grant & Sons.
California Terrace at M Victoria
Oh we love M Victoria and even more so now it’s rocking the coolest of Cali vibes. You can’t miss the palm trees and surfboards, so pull up a chair under the sky blue parasols and keep cool with their collection of Californian wines.
The Sekforde Spritz Garden at Heads & Tails, West Hampstead
Head over to The Sekforde Spritz Garden at Heads & Tails this bank hol weekend where their carefully crafted spritzes are low in alcohol and in sugar to make sure you stay hydrated, but ultimately big on taste with the help of their botanical mixers. Toterracep up the tan and your drinks in beautiful surroundings.
