On the Terrace at the Four Seasons, Mayfair
While busy Park Lane might not sound like the most likely location to find a slice of tranquility in central London, head through the Four Seasons hotel to its ‘back garden’ and you’ll find a different story.

The terrace also serves seasonal cocktails curated by resident bar manager Ivan Arena, who is known for his negronis and rhubarb americano.
