There’s nothing quite like enjoying a delicious cocktail in the summer, right? We don’t know about you, but the moment the sun raises its head, we want to be sitting on a rooftop bar soaking in the season. So, if you’re a little bit like us, you’ll most definitely want to check out the following 5 rooftop restaurants in the UK.
Carpathia Champagne Bar & Restaurant, Liverpool
For sun, sea and beautiful views, head to Carpathia Champagne Bar & Restaurant – which offers a fantastic drink selection, afternoon tea and spectacular views of the iconic Liverpool Waterfront. The Liverpool restaurant is also located within 30 James Street – Home of the Titanic, and the building originally served as the White Star Line’s HQ, which means it was also RMS Titanic’s port of registry.
So, you can enjoy delicious drinks and dishes, whilst enjoying the sun in a truly historic setting. What could be better than that?
Café Mambo, Torquay
Café Mambo is not your average café. At first glance, you might think Café Mambo is a nightclub, but step inside and onto the rooftop terrace and you will be blown over by the incredible views of the harbour.
