With London's iconic skyline as a backdrop, The Rooftop St James is one of the city's finest rooftop bars, offering visitors breathtaking views, luxurious style, and a menu of creative cocktails and international light bites.

The Rooftop St James menu is fronted by a celebrated cocktail list, expertly crafted by some of London's top mixologists, and taking inspiration from the city itself. Try the Soho Sunset made with bathtub Gin and Taittinger Champagne, or the Lords, Ladies and Commoners with pistachio-infused vodka. There is also a vast spirit menu, featuring single malt whiskies and premier tequilas, as well as spirits from small London producers.

To complement the eclectic drinks, The Rooftop St James in Trafalgar Square serves inventive Asian small plates. Seared beef tataki is matched with truffle, sweet daikon and shisho, while steamed buns come filled with pulled pork belly and shiitake mushrooms. From the grill there are lamb cutlets and black cod, while the dessert menu finishes things off with caramel miso ice cream, and yuzu and lime meringue tart.

Offering stunning views of Nelson's Column, The Rooftop St James is a luxurious restaurant in London that is just 2 minutes' walk from Charing Cross Tube Station.

    That was awfully. We have chosen to sit inside, the choice of black beans burger for my wife main course seemed to be a good one but it appeared on a frozen burned bread. Not a big deal at all but the overall result is simple - we have decided not to have breakfasts in the hotel (where we stay for 6 night) just to avoid any morning disappointments with the kitchen. That is the story how one veggie burger cut 12 breakfast bills. Thank you

    Amazing view, brilliant central location

    It's not quite a rooftop but a small terrace.
    Food was fine but quite pricey for burgers and chips.

    Indoor space looks like a staff canteen.

    When I asked to go to the hotel bar assuming it would be much nicer, the waiter told me it's under renovation therefore I did not spend more than 40 minutes in the rooftop.

    Also, view isn't great and nowhere to get Instagram pictures.

    Great location but overall experience was very disappointing.

    The actual outside section of the rooftop, that has great views over Trafalgar Square is a small area that fills up quickly, booking
    a table does not guarantee that you will be in this area. The other main part of the bar is large and not very inspiring.

    We were aware that was highly probable that we did not get to be in the terrace, but honestly the table against the wall, was awful for a rooftop bar! In addition, the attention was not the best and the drinks were not as good as we thought they were going to be.

    We need not eat only had a drinks table to enjoy the view with friends after the theatre but will come back to try the restaurant

    A small group came for some early evening cocktails to celebrate a birthday. The weather on the street was freezing and blowing a gale, this did not bode well for a rooftop drink, but up on the roof there wasn’t even the merest hint of a breeze and the freezing temperatures were kept away by heaters and blankets. The views were amazing and so were the drinks. Would definitely come back again.

    Booked for drinks on the rooftop terrace. Terrace was intimate and well heated. You got blankets to keep you cosy and we had amazing views of Trafalgar Square and some of London’s best monuments - The Eye, Shard, Trafalgar Square, the Coliseum theatre. Cocktails were excellent and service was just the right side of attentive. My friend and I shared the pork belly Bao buns - delicious!
