Similarly to Belgrave, Headrow House is a much-loved classic, and although it’s sometimes easy to compare the two, they are in fact very different. Headrow House generally attracts a completely different crowd, and that may be perhaps down to its slightly more sophisticated beer hall, and the additional top floor cocktail bar, Redondo Beach, which seamlessly leads out onto the first level of their rooftop terrace.
Enclosed within stylish pallet fencing, Headrow’s rooftop terrace gives you glimpses of the skyline but can magically make you believe you could be anywhere in the world. On this first level, raised benches are neatly placed around the outside, subtly leaving room for a dance floor, just to throw the idea out there. Up onto the second level is a more open terrace, completed with heated shelters of cushioned benches and more seating that gives the perfect view of their famous ever-changing neon sign. Order cocktails such as a Redondo kiss or a negroni from the upstairs bar, or for a little more option head downstairs to the main beer hall.
A terrace? On Call Lane? Yes, absolutely. For a slightly different rooftop experience try Roland’s, who have just created a sun terrace in their back yard, just in time for the summer. Their sun terrace follows their stylish rustic wooden interior, with a splash of colour with their signature red chairs. The space in true Rolands style is super cool and a perfect place to relax for an hour or ten!
Rolands are known for their cocktails, so it would probably be rude not to try one or two because we don’t know about you, but nothing sounds as appetising as one of their espresso martinis right about now…
