Monday 12 April 2021

This week England has seen the first of the lockdown restrictions begin to ease, although we we still have to wait a little longer to be sat inside outdoor dining for groups of up to 6 people is allowed.  We wanted to share with you some outdoor dining inspiration for you to enjoy during April.

It may not be quite the April heatwave we had hoped for but this week outdoor dining and beer gardens are open for groups of 6 and at Venue Search London we cannot wait to enjoy all London has to offer. So many venues and restaurants have been creative with their re-opening, so wrap up warm and enjoy some of these fantastic al-fresco dining spots.


1. The Boundary

The Shoreditch rooftop can be enjoyed all year round, the intimate venue has a stunning terrace overlooking the city as well as their glass orangery. The restaurant and bar transform whatever the season with parasol for the summer and blanket and fire pits in the winter.

2. Forza Wine

Another fantastic addition to the ever-expanding Bussey Building , Forza wine is a contemporary cube restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows and a huge outside terrace. The venue has expanded during lockdown and since built a covered patio space with heaters - the perfect spot during April showers!

3. The Lighterman

Pub, restaurant  and bar on Granary Square, Kings Cross, the three storey venue offers stunning views across Granary Square and Regents Canal. This venue is the perfect spot to enjoy all-day drinking and dining.

4. The Berkeley

Last year, The Berkeley gave us “The Garden” and this summer they are back with their Beach Huts opening on 12th April. The pop-up is inspired by Britain’s favourite seaside spots, there are five huts available to book as well as seating on the terrace!

5. Aviary

Aviary is an iconic rooftop bar and restaurant located in Finsbury Square.  Be the envy of your instagram followers by posting some of the city's most spectacular views. The venue delivers not only unforgettable experiences but delivers quality service and cuisine with a touch of class. Our go to rosé has to be the deliciously light Whispering Angel from Côtes de Provence.


6. Alto by San Carlo - Selfridges

Set on the rooftop of Selfridges, hidden from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. The instagrammable spot is perfect for spring drinks and dining with a retractable rooftop so guests are able to enjoy whatever the weather!

7. Allegra - The Stratford

Allegra is a restaurant, bar and terrace on the 7th floor of The Stratford, an extraordinary building from the team behind Chiltern Firehouse and St Pancras Renaissance. Allegra is making the most of their terraces by opening the Happy Burger pop-up on their terrace from April 12th. The venue is also playing host to chefs from restaurants without any outdoor seating, each chef creative a five-course menu for Allegra’s terrace BBQ pit.
