London needs as many rooftop bars as it can get during the summer, having only a small window to enjoy those blazing hot days and steamy nights. This is perhaps why the French Provincial restaurant, Orrery, Marylebone, does so well as we need people who understand sunshine to know the dynamics of rooftop sunning. Their roof terrace doubles up as a beautiful bar taking inspiration from the back gardens of Provence. It’s dotted with tea-lamps, olive trees, and of course those familiar lavender rows that we cannot help but associate with the smell of French sun. As the wine boxes cum plant-pots suggest, there is an array of amazing wines and of course champagne that you can sip and enjoy in the open air.
The Orrery Terrace Rooftop has been nominated this year for the National Luxury & Lifestyle Awards in the best bar category. You can vote for them from the 19th of July 2014 here.
