Bar/Pub: The Roof Deck
Where: Selfridges
The rooftop was: SO COOL. Seriously, if you can’t afford to go to California on holiday, this is like a little carefree Cali hideaway with major beach bar vibes. With timber benches and little cabanas, this is the perfect place for a post-shopping (or pre-shopping!) drink.
Drink with: A green cucumber and chilli margarita – a blend of Tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, cucumber, Habanero chilli and chilli salt.
The crowd: Guys and gals who’ve shopped until they’ve dropped, but it also had a relaxed after-work crowd, too. With views of London’s beautiful skyline, decorated with twinkling lights, you can why people flock to it at sunset.
You should also know: You don’t need to book for drinks on the terrace – perfect for a spontaneous visit.

Restaurant/Bar: Coq d’Argent
Where: The City, London
The rooftop was… Pretty. Darn. Great. If you want a killer view of London’s most impressive and iconic architectural skyline, you’d better plop yourself down for a beautifully crisp glass of wine at Coq d’Argent. An institution as much as a bolthole in The City, the top of 1 Poultry really takes some beating.
Drink with….
with such a comprehensive wine list, there’s something for all price points here. Once you’ve bedded in with a glass of vino though, you’d be best advised to assess the à la carte menu for an unrivaled selection that incorporates new daily recipes and seasonal produce, as a standard.
The crowd: Despite its City locale, the post-work drinking crowd wasn’t so much suits but more couples, families and groups of friends catching up.
Anything else I should know: Keeping it seasonal, there’s even something on the rooftop in the chillier months, too; this month sees the launch of the apres-ski inspired Lodge d’Argent for a few winter warming cocktails.
