As the temperatures heat up, cities like New York and London start to sizzle with rooftop bar and terrace openings. In London, the summer brings a bevy of seasonal pop-ups, like the fun rooftop restaurant at Selfridges department store. Now open in the British capital, Vintage Salt is inspired by a Cornish fishing village. Dressed up in a seaside style with a blue and white color scheme, the restaurant serves up grilled seafood, Jersey rock oysters, burgers (including a dry aged beef burger and a Cornish shrimp burger), light salads, and an elegant Afternoon Tea.
The adjacent Drift Bar is billed as “London’s number one summer rooftop drinking spot” with a focus on G&Tea cocktails, craft beers and English sparkling wine. This is the third such pop-up for restaurateur Des McDonald. With sweeping views over the city skyline, the al fresco restaurant will be open for five months. Open for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and drinks. Pssst. The dessert menu even includes Vintage Salt cigars.
