With panoramic views of the City and a cocktail menu that will be sure to quench any palette, the Sky Lounge at the Doubletree is a perfect spot to bask in post-work drinks this summer.

Finishing high amongst the London Rooftop Bar rankings, this gem attracts the likes of City dwellers and office junkies, all the way through to trendy tourists looking to put their feet up after a long day of exploring the Capital’s nearby attractions.

With a two-pronged spacious rooftop, the Sky Lounge can host private events for those wishing to mark a special occasion or celebrate that big company win. You’ll get your own private area without losing the overall buzz that the Sky Lounge has to offer.

On the main terrace, there’s plenty of space to kick back and relax – whether it’s cosying up on the canopied sofas or enjoying the sunset along the barstool-lined terrace, you needn’t worry about nudging elbows or toe-dodging weaves through the crowds. For when the weather is typically British, there is an extensive selection of comfy indoor seating to chill out and unwind on those chillier evenings!

Second to the views, the cocktail menu is a showstopper in its own right offering an exciting twist on classic favourites (The ‘Proper Mai Tai’ is a must!) to the more daring concoctions such as Vanilla Sky or Guilty as Gin. Fear not if cocktails don’t tickle your fancy – there’s a plethora of wine, beers, spirits and champagnes to choose from that will certainly get you into the summer vibes.

Keeping hunger pangs at bay, an inventive menu is on hand to satisfy even the pickiest of taste buds. For an indulgent treat opt for the warming truffle mac and cheese, or, if you’re feeling rather adventurous the duck leg doughnuts offer a fun twist on a staple classic. Alternatively, an array of sharing platters are available for your party to snack on throughout the evening, from beef burger sliders to thin crust pizzas.

British summertime doesn’t wait around for anyone – so take advantage of this glorious heat and treat yourself to a memorable night of stunning views and charming hospitality.
