The sun is shining (mostly!), so what better time to enjoy a long lunch or after-work drinks at one of Mayfair’s best restaurants offering outdoor space. From spacious roof terraces to sun-drenched patios, you’ll find it all here in Mayfair.
Aqua Restaurant and Spirit bar is the perfect place to enjoy cocktails as you watch the sun set. With stunning views across the rooftops of Mayfair, the two roof terraces are surprisingly peaceful places – odd when you consider you’re just a few steps from Oxford Circus! The restaurant serves a Japanese inspired menu of sushi, soup and salad, with sharing platters a popular choice, but you’ll also find noodles and charcoal grilled meat, fish and vegetables on offer. Why not treat yourself to the 180g Wagyu beef with garlic ponzu and grape icicles for a mere £65? It’s so good you won’t want to share.
This Spanish tapas restaurant and bar is one of London’s most popular venues; Johnny Depp is a regular! The outside tables let you enjoy dining al fresco, but be quick; they’re a popular choice during the summer months. The restaurant’s interior is usually busy and offers a value for money choice of two set menus starting at £16.35 per person. Mix and match tapas to share or enjoy a drink at the mirrored bar. The pulpo a la gallega (octopus brushed with olive oil and paprika) is not to be missed!
Some of Mayfair’s oldest and most respected auction houses, such as being Phillips and Sotheby’s known to sell extremely rare antiques and collectables are also located here. Mayfair also boasts some of the capital’s most exclusive restaurants, luxury shops, bars and clubs
