West London’s newest rooftop bar and restaurant set 170 feet high under a canopy of flowers. Designed as a vision of the Mediterranean, Pergola on the Roof will be a sunny European escapism with a roof top eatery including Rabbit, Salt Yard, Patty & Bun and Lecoq. This is sure to be the rooftop hangout of 2016.
A brand new Indian half plates and cocktail restaurant has opened. It takes you on a journey and explores India’s regions allowing you to taste the unusual but exotic flavours that India has to offer. With Executive Chef Sameer Taneja (formerly of the Michelin-starred Benares) heading up the kitchen, the food comes served in share-sized portions best enjoyed with an Indian-style cocktail (and they’re so good!).
Adam Handling’s The Frog in Shoreditch has such a relaxed atmosphere where the food really excites the eye. Adam’s distinctive style of cooking is technically savvy with the use of excellent produce and a little theatrical flair. The drinks are great too, you can sip on craft beer from selected micro-breweries, new age wine from young winemakers and curated cocktails.

Grab a seat in the Hello Kitty Garden within the streets of Soho and enjoy delights such as Mama’s apple pie mousse, Mimmy’s pink lemonade marshmallow and Kitty’s snacktime sandwiches. Finishes on August 31st.
