Coq d’Argent

If you can’t find enough green space for your alfresco itch, look up.  Several London roof top bars boast beautiful views and great atmosphere to go with the drink.  One such rooftop bar and restaurant happens to be in my neighborhood.  Coq d’Argent is a lovely place for an after work drink or a ambient dinner.  The plates are a bit on the expensive side, but for business dinners or special occasions, that might be just the ticket.

Restaurant reviews are mixed, but the bar is great way to start or end a night with friends, even if you just get a Diet Coke.

You might have to wait in the queue to use the lift unless you have reservations for a table, but the wait isn’t long. Once you are on the roof, enjoy the view and the well dressed crowd.

The view at sunset is nice, but it can get a bit windy so bring a light jacket or wrap.
