The Summer of Sound at John Lewis’ Gardening Society Rooftop on Oxford Street, invites you to celebrate music, food and drink at one of London’s largest rooftops this summer. With immersive sound studios each powered by a audio heavyweight and available to book for you and your friends, alongside Fever Tree’s Gin & Tonic garden with a specially-curated drinks menu and exclusive weekly gin masterclasses, live music from Friday – Sunday and legendary fried-chicken restaurant Butchies serving up mouth-watering food including halloumi fries and veggie options.
What a cracking rooftop bar! The gardens are stunning, rustic and plants and trees a plenty. Great seating spots dotted around and even a deckchair or 2. A Gin bar is also stationed here and of course a main bar with a great selection of wine beers and seasonal cocktails. A hidden gem, well worth a visit. If you like your music you can pop into 1 of 4 studios to listen to any genre you want to!
Roof top garden lovely for a chilled drink, but service provided by 3rd party cafe extremely lacking & food meager & unappealing.
No seating available in this section, told I could order a 'take out' & sit anywhere. Waited half an hour to then be told I had to understand they were very busy, unacceptable! A simple apology was all that was required. I witnessed other customers arrive after me & served prior to me. It would have been useful to have been informed there was a delay in which case I would have waited for a table or simply eaten downstairs. Highly recommend gin shack but not the eatery.
It’s a great place to visit, but the cafe / restaurant needs a lot of improvement. It’s a complete mess, especially in busy hours. I haven’t seen so much confusion and lack of system in London for a while. It’s like a railway station when the schedule is disrupted and nobody knows anything. Lots of different queues, unhelpful staff, confused and irritated customers and... it doesn’t help that there’s only one toilet for the whole roof.
The food was good, but I would expect a proper plate if I get a burger for £14.5 - not a paper one that gets blown away within a minute.
Really great to go and enjoy the summer sun!
Seating is extremely limited and be prepared to sit on the astro turf or stand. We waited for about 30 mins for some seats to free up then it was fine.
Drinks are very expensive and it is clear they are taking slight advantage of the situation... literally. Though do nice cocktails and can be worth it on a nice blue sky day.
The roof garden at John Lewis is a really nice space. We were there on a lovely sunny Friday afternoon after work and the atmosphere was great. It doesn't fit many people so you could be in for a real queue, but a great place for a few drinks with friends. We didn't eat but the chicken looked tasty!
