Where? The Boundary. East. Just off Liverpool St. Why? Roof terrace that’ll knock your socks off. Exceptionally good food, great drinks, fairy lights, fragrant herb garden. Book dinner in the restaurant and start with drinks and nibbles outside. You’ll love it. Also bookable for private events, which would be rather dreamy. Wear? Smart casual. Website. (Priority is given to hotel guests and dinner bookings, so worth giving them a buzz.)
One of the highest outdoor dining terraces in Europe, offering unparalleled, 360 degree views of the City, this beautiful rooftop restaurant delivers a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, culture, music.
For a drink with a view, try the Madison Bar nr St Paul's. The terrace is on an eyeline with the cathedral dome and there are stunning views out across the skyline to the new Shard and London Eye. If you're looking for a drink after work, arrive before 5.30 as it gets justifiably very busy. Much recommended
