Offering creative small plates and individually crafted cocktails, The Rooftop sits atop The Trafalgar St James Hotel. With the London skyline as a backdrop, the outdoor terrace comes complete with heaters and canopy-covered seating, whilst indoors, the view can be enjoyed amidst sleek, contemporary furnishings.

The Rooftop menu begins with tempting nibbles such as chilli edamame beans or fries with sriracha mayonnaise, followed by a selection of small plates ranging from flavour-rich raw dishes, to filled steam buns and meat from the grill. Tuck into the likes of sea bream tartare with lime and avocado, a pulled pork belly steamed bun with tamarind glaze, or grilled Korean beef skewers.

Classic cocktails are joined at The Rooftop by signature creations including the Pink Dragon, a blend of dragon-fruit infused vodka and plum liqueur, and the Skyline, a heady mix of pisco, pink grapefruit, raspberry and lavender bitters.

Offering breath-taking London views alongside innovative food and drink, The Rooftop is a tranquil retreat above Trafalgar Square. Charing Cross Rail Station is a 2-minute walk away.

    We had a wonderful evening it was Valentine’s Day and my partner was so Pleased with the atmosphere and the food and then the only upset was that the weather turned for worse on that day it started to rain but I’m looking forward to visiting again on a wonderful sunny day

    A cold valentines night but great views and something different. Sharing plate menu looks light but was very tasty well presented and well chosen dishes. Should be busy all summer.

  • ((((( 7 January 2018 by Allison Frith from London

    What a great venue.. tucked away at the top of the Trafalgar Hotel, the Rooftop St James offers a (literal) birds eye view over the iconic Trafalgar Square! Wrap up warm as you'll be outside, however the cosy blankets provided and warm and friendly serve keep the chills away somewhat!
    Amazing range of drinks and delicious little tapas style dishes make this an evening to remember - just make sure to book!

    The staff were very friendly and provided prompt service. The cocktails were great. The views from The Rooftop are amazing, especially during the New Year season with all the lights. blankets were provided which kept us warm. It was great to be sitting outside enjoying the view, yet feeling warm. We loved the ribs - they were divine. Overall this was a great experience, well worth a visit.
