The UK is renowned for its unpredictable weather, so it perhaps comes as no surprise that there are very few bars in London that are prepared to expose themselves to these often wet and windy conditions!
But when the sun does come out and the evenings are mild, the few bars that do boast a sun-drenched terrace offer a wonderful place to date.
Sky Lounge – Tower of London
At a gravity defying 12 storey’s high, it’s no wonder the views from Sky Lounge – Tower of London are impressive, to say the least.
Taking London dating to a whole new level, way up here, you and your date will have the opportunity to absorb the historical majesty of the Tower of London and the skyline piercing Shard, and every landmark in-between.
Atop the Hilton Mint Hotel, the tables are sporadically dotted about the terrace, allowing the two of you to date in the privacy of your own space.
Queen of Hoxton – Shoreditch
While the downstairs of this East End bar may have a hipster vibe, resonant of its postcode, swiftly whisk your date through and up the stairs to a rooftop bar that exudes a ceaseless buzz from day to night.
Queen of Hoxton boasts a stunning rooftop garden which features a BBQ kitchen, bars and panoramic views across the city – perfect for your London dating experience.
Sit back in the deckchairs and soak up the rays as you get a little better acquainted with your date, or sip on your favourite tipples into the evening as you enjoy the unrivalled city scenery.
Aqua – Oxford Circus
If you’re looking to sweep your date off their feet, then this gem of a rooftop bar is for you.

Boundary Rooftop – Shoreditch
Boundary Rooftop Bar in Shoreditch is a particularly popular London dating spot, and not without good reason.
