London's best winter rooftop bars and restaurants
As the nights are drawing in, who says roof-top dining is only for summer? Whilst perennial favourites switch to winter with style – exuberant blankets and cosy heaters – many are launching new residencies from the ultra ethical to authentically Moroccan and Italian
The Moroccan medina launches at Queen of Hoxton's rooftop for the winter months promising to be seriously cosy. Expect a rooftop riad full of the colour, smells and sights of a Moroccan souk, with plenty of exotic drapes decorating the rooftop’s winter wigwam. Outside the wigwam, the bar is aiming to recreate the famous cacti-filled Jardin Majorelle under the glow of fairy lights.
At the bar, they’ll be spiced hot buttered rum and shimmering gold pomegranate bellinis as well as a rainbow vegan mezze board for bar snacking. And of course, there’ll be fragrant mint tea with rose, with the option of slinging in a nip of booze for good measure.
