Where to go for drinks with a view this summer

Ah, summer drinks. Is there anything better than sipping on a cold drink watching the sun go down? Whilst we’re in the middle of a heatwave, here are our top five spots for alfresco drinking in Knightsbridge and the surrounds this summer...


Babylon at Kensington Roof Gardens

London's only rooftop Private Members Club is set among 1.5 acres of stunning rooftop gardens 100 feet above Kensington High Street.

There’s something for everyone this summer, from day parties at the club to BBQs and proms on the roof. Why not hire your own VIP area for the ultimate in rooftop indulgence?

Location: 99 Kensington High Street, W8 5SA


Rooftop pool at The Berkeley 

Swim and sunbathe all day then sip drinks as the sun goes down at the Berkeley’s rooftop pool, open til 10pm. Set on the 7th floor of the hotel, the pool’s sliding roof will retract in good weather and there’s a spa menu should you get peckish. Non-members are welcome.

Location: The Berkeley, Wilton Place, Knightsbridge, SW1X 7R.


Baden-Powell House roof terrace

Perfect for an unusual gatherings, the private roof terrace at Baden-Powell House overlooks The National History Museum. The terrace is available for private hire and comes complete with BBQ facilities, table tennis tables and space for up to 200 of your closest friends.

Location: 65-67 Queens Gate, South Kensington, SW7 5JS.


Serpentine Bar, Hyde Park

Not a rooftop, but the view across the river from from the Serpentine Bar’s riverside terrace is just as spectacular. Inspired by English country living the bar serves wine, jugs of summer cocktails and wood fired pizzas. New for summer is a pop-up gin and hot dog bar.  

Location: Hyde Park.


Harvey Nichols Fifth Floor cafe and bar

Head to the fifth floor cafe in Harvey Nicks to enjoy a tipple on their terrace, high above the Knightsbridge rooftops. If you’re hungry, the cafe serves modern European fare until 11pm.
