The Rooftop St. James Rooftop Bar in London

Trafalgar Square, skyline
Year round


Swanky rooftop cocktail bar, serving Asian plates to share and fantastic views over London.

Set on the 7th floor of the fantastic The Trafalgar St. James, The Rooftop rivals the city’s finest when it comes to drinking and dining with views of the fantastic London skyline.

The Rooftop at St. James is an elegant venue, perfect for enjoying an alfresco crafted cocktail. The drink list contains both well made signatures and classics, complemented with an impressive wine menu.

This is also a London rooftop restaurant that's open all year, complete with blankets and heaters, along with a retractable roof providing a year round experience. Food comes as tasty European-inspired dishes, perfect to share with friends. Served as lunch and dinner, and during weekends also as rooftop brunch.

Grab a table in The Gallery for the most breathtaking views over London. Or relax at the sun-drenched conservatory called The Deck. Reservations are not mandatory, but highly recommended.

For premier occasions we recommend ROOM - a glass box with space for 14, boasting spectacular views of Trafalgar Square. All options put together makes The Rooftop one of the best London rooftop bars.
