We’ve still got a couple of weeks left before we can dine indoors so for the time being, alfresco dining it is! That’s no bad thing, right? Picture this - the sun is shining down on you, you’ve got a passionfruit martini in your hand to match with your Coconut Lane Passion Fruit Martini phone case AND you’re brunching with the girls! Okay okay - we do live in the UK BUT luckily for us, most restaurants will now protect us rain or shine with overhead cover. Wahoo!
Looking for some much needed brunching and dining inspo? Don’t stress gals! We’re here to share our top locations for alfresco dining in London to see you right through the summer.
For all you boujee babes, Dalloway Terrace is the PERFECT location if you’re looking for something a little more fancy. Located in central London, the gorgeous terrace features a cascade of flowers against its back wall making it a super instagrammable brunching spot. If brunching isn’t your thing, no problem, Dalloway also offers a set menu for afternoon tea so you could opt for a cute outing with your mum instead.
Mamma Mia! If you’re crazy about Italian food then you NEED to try Circolo Popolare. Not only will you have an amazing Italian menu to pick from, the famous atmosphere is described as fun, buzzy and permanently overflowing with guests that will queue around the block to get a table - it really is THAT good. This location is the perfect spot for date night or dinner with your besties.
Located near Paddington station, Pergola’s beautiful rooftop terrace is decorated head to toe with flowers, fairy-lights and foliage. It’s the perfect location for an evening outing full of cocktails with your gals. Treat yourself and choose from a range of street food stalls dotted around the terrace - you really will be spoilt for choice.
Perhaps the most gorgeous bar in London, The Prince features a secluded woodland garden tucked away behind their pub and street food kitchens. Described as a ‘flower-laden oasis’, the alfresco terrace is the perfect spot for a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary. We recommend visiting on a Wednesday where you can treat yourself to 2-4-1 cocktails - now who would say no to that!
If you’re looking for a scenic dining experience, Coppa Club on Tower Bridge boasts a riverside terrace overlooking London’s most iconic bridge. Their famous private dining igloos are to DIE FOR, featuring glass windows and raw timber frames entwined with foliage and fairy-lights. How cute! What better way to catch up with your besties than in a private igloo pod? Love it!
