Living in London, I
try not to but fail miserably refuse to moan about the weather. Moving swiftly on from the topic of summer, autumn has started in spectacular sunny style meaning that I have been able to rooftop dine for longer. Unexpectedly Oxford Street department stores have turned out to be this year’s rooftop secret finds. There was the peaceful John Lewis roof garden and another favourite spot for me has been the buzzing restaurant and bar On The Roof With Q at Selfridges.
I like the change of perspective from my usual hellish experience of Oxford Street. I like being away from the crowds pushing and shoving. I like being closer to the clouds.
Now I’ve heard word that winter will not mean the end of rooftop dining at Selfridges. A log cabin called Le Chalet is due to be opening at the end of the month. I’ll report back when I’ve had a chance to check it out.
