You may think that this post is a tad too late with summer ending however this bank holiday weekend proves otherwise, there is still life in London's roof top bars this year. Roof top bars can be hard to find as many are pop-ups or closed in winter months but I thought I would share this little gem with you. The Santa Monica rooftop bar is the perfect venue for a couple of quick beers after work, meeting up with mates or going on a date.
SANTA MONICA AT SKYLOUNGE
Situated at the Sky Lounge of the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotels, this pop-up roof top bar is open until the 30th September. With 360 degree views of the city of London, crack open a brew whilst in the comfort of some laid back Santa Monica vibes over looking London's Shard, The Walkie-Talkie and Gherkin.
It's the perfect venue for a date-night, head over to Santa Monica Sky Lounge for some pre-drinks and nibbles before finishing the night in the SkyLounge for some fine dining.
With the venue sorted, you might need some help deciding what to wear, what I have worn during this particular date-night is quite smart but I wanted to make a great impression as t-shirt and jeans doesn't seem to be working for me as of late!
My navy single-breasted blazer is from Scalpers a brand that I only found by wondering down Carnaby Street, you should check them out as they have some incredible menswear and they currently have a 60% off Summer Sale online. The shirt is a button-down design from Hawkins & Shepherd and the white skinny chinos are ASOS. Finishing the look, I have worn my tortoiseshell sunglasses by KITE and grey tassel loafers by Kurt Geiger.
The question is did it work? Now that would be telling ;)
