Although winter feels like it lasted a lifetime, thankfully it's time to wave goodbye to the cold and say hello to SUMMER!

There's nothing better than a cheeky cocktail or mocktail on a rooftop bar, especially looking over the skyline of London. So we've picked the best rooftop bars around London that you've just GOT to try once lockdown has lifted its restrictions.

The Culpeper
Only open during the summer months this one is the perfect sun trap. Fancy eating here too? Well, you'll find an urban garden on the rooftop too where they grow vegetables they use in the kitchen - delicious.

Bussey Rooftop Bar
Located at the top of Bussey Building this tropic oasis offers 360-degree views of London and is one of the best drinking hot spots once the sun is out.

Big Chill House
As the name suggests, this laid-back rooftop bar brings you all the summer vibes. Enjoy their DJ music with a cocktail in hand on a sunny day and winter will seem like a distant memory.

In the winter go ice skating and in summer play croquet all on the same rooftop. Now the ice rinks gone, Londons most imaginative rooftop has got the garden games are back and we're so ready for it!

Netil 360
Who needs chairs anyway? Gain the 'summer garden' feeling at this secret garden in the sky. Be warned, on a summers day this is everyone's go-to so plan arriving early, it's well worth it.

Overlooking St. Paul's Cathedral, this rooftop bar is perfect to enjoy the whole day. Drinks start off at £6 but can get quite pricey so maybe save this one for a special occasion.
