The Rooftop, St. James
The Rooftop at St. James in Trafalgar Square is a cocktail bar with a view. Sitting at the top of The Trafalgar, the Rooftop offers individually crafted cocktails and small plates. The alfresco seating has the option of heaters and blankets when the temperature drops so that you can still enjoy the London skyline while sipping on a cocktail just as you like it. A quick tip from us, the tables with the best view get taken very quickly so you might want to call ahead and reserve your spot.
The Covent Garden Cocktail Club
The Covent Garden Cocktail Club sits at 6-7 Great Newport Street, London where the London Cocktail Club was originally located. The basement pub is known for its classic cocktails that it has stayed true to. On the cocktail menu there are also some more modern mixes, a house special, and specially crafted cocktails based on your preferences. There are also wines and beers if that’s more up your alley. The leather sofas that run around the periphery and simple wooden stools complete the décor keeping things minimal yet cosy.
