Skylounge rooftop bar at the Double Tree by Hilton hotel in London opens a uniquely themed, California-inspired pop-up for the summer. Offering the laid-back style and feel of Santa Monica, California, the bar has been transformed into a beachside resort. Complete with palm trees and atmospheric décor of ocean scenes, it makes an ideal venue for a relaxing drink.
Taking in views of the Gherkin and the Shard, guests can choose from a drinks menu that blends contrasting flavours, with cocktails ranging from grapefruit and jalapeño to strawberry and basil. Light snacks can be enjoyed, too. Enjoy a dash of sweetness and spice with salmon maki rolls, fish tacos or octopus kebabs. To finish, try the deep-filled salted caramel doughnuts.
Guests can head to a table for a relaxing evening or sit by the bar for a regular top up of the California-style cocktails. The pop-up bar is open from 4pm to midnight, Tuesday to Saturday, and will be at Skylounge throughout the summer until 30 September.
