Upper 5th

Now we’re not trying to tempt fate, but this glorious weather looks as though it isn’t budging any time soon. Rather than trying to make the most of it squeezed onto a pavement by a pub door, why not head a little closer to the sun? Roof terraces are a great way to enjoy the still-light evenings and Upper 5th, one of Shoreditch’s rooftop bars is no exception. With panoramic, #insta-worthy views of the London skyline and space for up to 180 guests, Upper 5th is (as the name suggests) situated on the 5th floor of the Courthouse Hotel. For an impromptu evening tipple, make your way to The Upper Bar, with its standing tables and incredible scenery from 3pm during the week and 12pm on weekends. If it’s something more personal, head to The Garden, a reservation only space with table service and cabana sofa-bed seating. Indulge in the Shisha menu and enjoy a selection of cocktails to wash down small plates and sharers.
