“Don’t you think it’s beginning to feel more autumnal?” is a question I am hearing more and more of, and a question I am choosing to ignore. It’s early September and it’s still summer. Word on the street is that over the next few weeks the UK may even see an Indian summer.
ME London’s iconic Radio Rooftop is just the place to go extend that al-fresco, summery feeling over the next few weeks. It has been transformed into a beautiful inner-city summer oasis mirroring the dreamiest of summer gardens, complete with three Florangeries. The Spanish-inspired Florangeries have been draped in floral installations created by florist Cyrill Tronchet, providing the perfect venue for end of summer celebrations and parties, with spectacular views overlooking the London skyline.
Innovative cocktails and small plates of delicious bites can be found in the tailored ‘Florangerie’ menu. For food; think a spread of spicy tuna tartare canapés, tempura tiger prawns with a sweet mango dip, and sumptuous chicken satay. The cocktails themselves are like a summer garden, with edible flowers decorating the colourful drinks. Guests going would be fools not to try the espresso martini ice cream which is incredibly indulgent, but so very delicious.
#TeamCoco’s tip: Make sure to try the Italian Garden cocktail…
The central location and slick finesse of the bartenders make Radio Rooftop the type of venue that’s perfect to take someone you’re looking to impress to lap up the views and take in the last of the summer (or snuggle under a blanket once the sun goes down). Just remember to reserve in advance as tables book up early!
The Summer Garden at Radio Rooftop can be enjoyed by all guests visiting with a special hot or cold menu offering alongside the pop-up, priced from £25 or £40 for 2-4 people. It will be there until 30 September 2018, so don’t miss out.
