The Best of the Best Outdoor Venues

24 May 2016

The weather is set to start heating up again, and while we might not be reaching Ibiza temps again anytime soon

It’s deffo going to be hot enough to sit outside with a refreshing drink in hand preferably containing alcohol.  I mean roof top bars are cool and all, but you can’t beat somewhere you can just walk into and get a drink without getting in a hot sweaty lift with strangers. 

So kick back, relax and let the sun tan and warm breeze sweep over your face while at one of our fantastic summer hotspots. Obviously, while you sip on a cocktail. Or two. Or three.



This venue is located at the iconic Gherkin. YES. Nothing makes you feel more like an uber-cool James Bond character than sipping on cocktails with the Gherkin in your line of view. The outdoor patio is perfect for basking in the summer sun.



An unbeatable location in the heart of the city, Core is your place for summertime parties. With an incredible East London vibe, Core is the perfect place to pop open a bottle of Prosecco and meet your new summer fling.



People watching spots do not get better than the balcony at Ruby Blue. In the heart of Leicester Square, we recommend Ruby Blue as a Mojito stop location, and when we say mojito stop, we mean you will probably pop in at 5 and not leave until the early hours. 


Live your nightlife to the fullest in the alfresco atmosphere of Heddon Street. The best parties come from throwing your own summer festivals than at Strawberry Moons.



Light, bright and the best for lounging in the summer sun, this open plan space is perfect for big bashes or an intimate night out with friends. Located in the gorgeous Fitzrovia, we definitely recommend catching some lunchtime rays through to partying on a hot summer night.

Whatever you’re fancying on these hot summer days and nights, we’ve got exactly what you need. Be sure to check out our full list of venues with outdoor space here…
