The Boundary Rooftop, Shoreditch

January 28, 2015

Those of you who know this Rooftop Bar, may well count it as one of their favourite summer drinking hangouts.  And I can totally see why; the Rooftop has a wide, expansive terrace, fire pits and comfy seating.  The views are great, but don’t count on getting in any real London landmarks.  You can see Shoreditch House though (might not be quite so comparable!).

But while the Boundary’s Rooftop perhaps seems the more obvious choice in the summer, I decided to go in the winter.  For it is now open every day, throughout the year.  It has a covered part which is heated and protects you from the elements.  You still get the views.  And the great cocktails.  And it’s not so busy.  Win win in my view.

To take a step back, the Boundary is a super hip hotel in Shoreditch, with 12 rooms, all individual and unique, all designed by Terence Conran.  It also has a very good restaurant, which is well worth a visit after a cocktail or two.  Or if you want something a little more laid back, head to Albion, their cafe and small shop, and have one of their divine slices of cake.  The design throughout the building is quirky and stylish.  My colleagues told me to check out the wall paper in the lift and they were right, I loved the Escher-esque pattern.

Back to the Rooftop Bar & Grill – the cocktail menu is succinct but I was tempted by a lot of their cocktails.  They also have a winter cocktail menu for more warming drinks.  In the end I opted for the Rooftop Passion, because I am a sucker for vodka and passionfruit.  Rob went for a good old Martini, which also went down surprisingly easily.  If you’re peckish then the wafts of grilled meat coming from the kitchen will certainly entice you to stay. They also serve their version of brunch: an ‘Elevenses’ Menu, which is a great option for a lazy Saturday morning.

Bottom line, if you’re looking for a bar in Shoreditch and the sun isn’t shining, don’t rule out the Boundary’s Rooftop.  It wasn’t too busy on a Friday evening, so it might be just the place for you to head to for a pre-dinner drink.
