As promised, every month in 2017 I am clambering up high to give you an aerial glimpse of London and taking you to a different viewpoint each time.
January took us to the outdoor gallery atop St Paul’s Cathedral; February took us onto a rooftop terrace close to St Paul’s; in March we sailed west along the Thames and up in a cable car; in April we loitered high above the Thames opposite St Paul’s; in May we strolled up Primrose Hill. This month we are taking it easy with both elevator and sustenance available.
Come and join me for a drink and a tasty nibble in a rooftop bar on the Strand.
This classy bar is located on the roof of the ME Hotel on London’s Strand, close to the Thames. An express lift will whisk you to the 10th floor, where the Radio Bar offers great views down onto the Strand and across the road to Somerset House. Further afield, you can see the Gherkin, Cheese Grater, Walkie Talkie and Shard to your left and the London Eye to your right.
This bar is in the heart of London, so definitely worth a visit. Dress code is trendy and casual (but I was allowed in !), and non-residents are welcome. However, residents are given priority and seats can be hard to come by, so if you are not staying in the hotel I recommend reserving a table.
