We’re not graced with much warm weather in London, but when the sun does shine through, we maximise every possible ray of sunshine. One place you’ll want to be this summer is the Radio Bar atop the new ME London hotel on Aldwych.
On the 10th floor, Radio Bar has sublime views of London from all directions. When you exit the lift, you are greeted by floor to ceiling windows with London’s famous sights within touching distance.
The terrace lines Radio Bar on both sides, with a selection of tables, lounging areas and larger seating areas for groups. The music and laid back atmosphere helps to create an image of being in the Balearic Islands, with The Thames a good substitute for the sea!
I have to admit that we didn’t love the cocktails on our visit, but there are enough original concoctions to keep you coming back for more, but the wine list is surprisingly reasonable (as are the cocktails at under £10) with a nice Malbec by the glass.
But you come to Radio Bar for the view – Tower Bridge, The Shard, St. Paul’s Cathedral – and to revel in being outside on a rooftop terrace in central London.
