Catch some rays at Oxford Street’s best summer terraces

04 June 2024

With the weather warming up we are all seeking a little slice of sunshine and what better way to bask in the sun than on an Oxford Street rooftop. So, what are you waiting for? Get a group together and book a table today.

1864 Rooftop Bar & Restaurant

Named in honour of the year John Lewis & Partners was founded, 1864 Rooftop Bar & Kitchen is located on the 6th floor of the iconic department store. Perfect for socialising, the spacious outdoor terrace features Instagrammable greenhouse-style booths and there is a cute indoor bar – ideal for sheltering in if the weather changes (let’s be honest, this is the UK). Offering an array of inventive cocktails and delicious small plates – the chorizo croquetas are a must – enjoy the sunshine by day, or views of the city’s twinkling skyline by night.


Aqua Kyoto x Porte Noire Summer Terrace

For this year’s summer terrace, Aqua Kyoto has partnered with Porte Noire – the champagne and wine brand co-founded by Idris Elba. A chic and inviting space, the terrace is partially covered and heated (a must given the history of British summers). Dine on the very best sushi expertly paired with the new dedicated champagne and wine menu. With flickering candles and fresh floral arrangements, Aqua Kyoto’s summer terrace offers an exclusive hidden spot above Oxford Street, the perfect date night set up.

Aqua Nueva x PATRÓN Tequila Summer Terrace

A match made in heaven. Spanish restaurant Aqua Nueva has joined forces with the world’s leading tequila brand, PATRÓN, creating a limited-edition menu and Mexico inspired terrace. The infamous Paloma cocktail made with tequila, limes and grapefruit soda is the ideal accompaniment to the classic tapas dishes such as padron peppers or cured Iberico meats. Immerse yourself in the flavours of Mexico and Spain and enjoy a leisurely lunch under the sun or a lively night sipping on cocktails and admiring the view.
