Business Traveller: Outdoor London

Published: 14/07/2010

Make the most of Summer in the City with our picks for Central London drinking and dining…. Located on the southwest corner of Trafalgar Square, many readers may not be aware that the 129-room Trafalgar Hotel is actually an unbranded Hilton property.

The hotel’s sixth-floor rooftop bar was formerly known as the Trafalgar Roof Garden, but was recently relaunched as Vista. The open air space offers views over the square and across to Big Ben and the London Eye, and now features new black and white furnishings aimed at creating “a relaxed atmosphere of Mediterranean chic”.

A partnership with Pommery sees three champagnes on offer, as well as forthcoming seasonal vintages, and the menu has also been revamped, with dishes including stuffed baby pepper with halloumi and herbs (£7.50); a watermelon, tarragon and feta salad (£13.00); and an antipasti platter (£17.50).

Cocktails start at £10, and the bar is open Monday to Saturday from 12pm to 11pm, and Sunday from 12pm to 10pm. Note that there is a £5 cover charge. The bar is also available for private hire – for more information visit thetrafalgar.com.
