The best Liverpool Street rooftop bars

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t like a rooftop bar, and whilst many would say the London weather doesn’t really lend itself to rooftop bars, there’s the little-known fact of anthropogenic climate catastrophe making London rooftop bars all the more viable.

The area around Liverpool Street isn’t particularly large in terms of square mileage, but it is surrounded by the City of London skyline, complete with skyscrapers and iconic landmarks. If there’s anywhere you want a rooftop bar in London, it’s somewhere with a view of that skyline.

It’s a small list for now, but as of writing this, they’re building away next to Liverpool Street Station, and we’re in a betting mood – there will likely be more rooftop bars before the decade is out.

1. A rooftop garden & greenhouse at The Culpeper

Liverpool Street, London

It’s difficult not to gush about The Culpeper pub, restaurant, and rooftop garden in Spitalfields. The three-storey Victorian building on the corner of Commercial Street and Wentworth Street is stunning. The ground floor is a quality pub, the first floor is a restaurant, the second floor is entirely dedicated to boutique hotel rooms, and the rooftop contains a garden and greenhouse.

Whilst the rooftop opening hours are weather-dependent, we think it’s one of the loveliest rooftop bars near Liverpool Street – there’s something about enjoying a cocktail containing herbs that were grown in the rooftop garden, or enjoying a pint in the sunshine amongst the sprouting herbs and vegetables. The ambiance is so chill and relaxed and reason enough to go, but the view of the City skyline acts as a late capitalist cherry on a steel and glass cake.

2. Sushi and cocktails at an agaveria bar & lounge: Los Mochis

Liverpool Street, London

Following on the heels of success in Notting Hill, Los Mochis is opening a second location in Broadgate Circle near Liverpool Street Station. Although the doors don’t open to the public until Spring 2024 if the Notting Hill location is anything to go by, Los Mochis will be a stellar addition to the Liverpool Street rooftop bar scene – you read it here first.

Los Mochis is known for marrying the ​​flavours of Mexico and Japan, and this new location will offer a main dining area with a sushi bar, a scenic rooftop terrace, an intimate private dining room, an agaveria bar & lounge, and an omakase experience – a meal consisting of Chef's recommendations. Stay tuned. This is not the last you’ll read of Los Mochis.

3. Cocktails & waffles forty floors above ground level at Duck & Waffle

Liverpool Street, London

Known for its namesake dish, Duck & Waffle is also one of our top picks for a Liverpool Street rooftop bar experience. Located on the 40th floor of Salesforce Tower with stunning views of the City skyline, it offers a 360-degree, walk-around ‘chef’s bar’ where new and classic cocktails are served to the mob of Essex girls on their day trip to the city.

What it lacks in outdoor space, or a traditional ‘rooftop’, it more than makes up for with some of the most sought-after views in London and in crafting damn good cocktails.

4. A cocktail menu with the flavours of Japan, Brazil, and Peru: SUSHISAMBA

Liverpool Street, London

Sushisamba is on the 39th floor of 110 Bishopsgate, just around the corner from Liverpool Street Station. A blend of Japanese, Peruvian, and Brazilian flavours across cocktail and food menus, this sky-high bar and restaurant are loud and colourful in decor, lighting, and presentation, and big on flavour.

Between Peruvian cacao, Brazilian cachaça, and Japanese whisky and sake, the cocktail menu has enough spirits and flavours from three different cultures to get us well and truly into our cups so that when we’re tipsy can dare ourselves to look out and down from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
