Mayfair Terrace

The Best Rooftop Bars In Mayfair

In between Berkley Square and The Ritz lies one of Mayfair’s most stylistic settings, Mayfair Terrace. This chic and sleek hangout is one of the best rooftop bars in Mayfair, offering an intimate setting with cozy and sung lounge seating on the terrace, surrounded by several fireplaces ideal for the cold, brisk winter months. Depending on the occasion, the open-air enclave, filled with stunning scenery, wooden elements, and candle-lit tables, offers a place perfect for a drink or two.

The lounge bar and terrace menu offer a selection of rare snacks and Japanese influence tacos, too. A particular favorite is the Seabass sashimi with dried Miso, which nicely pair with rocoto chili paste and a citrus plant called Yuzu. Delicious, that’s for sure! The classic drinks menu, with signature cocktails, fortified wines, and a spirit selection from Peruvian, Mexican, Japanese, and Mediterranean influences, makes the experience even more satisfying. Exotic and quirky ingredients help shape the flavorsome beverages ranging from bee pollen cherry, grapefruit oils, 12-year-old infused rum, and agave syrup to even a Matcha Green tea rim.
