I was meant to get my butt over to London’s most Instagrammed rooftop bar during the summer but – in typical fashion – I managed to fail at that task.
Thankfully for me, Pergola On The Roof has re-opened up as a cosy winter garden and I finally got to check it out this weekend.
While I missed the Mediterranean style fun in the summer months, I was totally loving their Nordic-mystical forest dining scene.
The rooftop is now set 100-feet-high under a canopy of holly, ivy, and winter flowers. It is literally wintry escapism thanks to the fact it’s covered by a low level wooden structure wrapped in forestry foliage, set against burgundy walls and paved with woody bark.
Silver birch trees, low level lighting, blankets, cedar wood, oaky scents and candle light = HEAVEN!
FOOD: Having treated myself to a Patty & Bun burger earlier in the week, I decided to head to Baos Steaming and grab a few meaty bites. And my meal was washed down by a lovely bottle of cider.
I completely forgot that I signed up to the visitor book and could claim a free drink so DON’T BE LIKE ME.
Sign up here and make sure you get your free booze.
VERDICT: Apart from freezing my arse off in the portaloos, I literally loved everything about it. Now I can see why it became such a big deal over the summer.
And to think this was just the old BBC television centre carpark before. I love how Londoners are making use of space these days!
