Nightclub & Bar Review
Located in a beautiful heritage building on Kensington High Street in London, The Roof Gardens is a regal space owned by Richard Branson and Virgin Group that spans over 10 acres and multiple entertainment areas, from stunning gardens to a top-notch restaurant and nightclub. You can tell you’re in for something special when a host meets you at the door to take you into an elevator to the top, 100ft above the buzzing streets below. The spectacle that greets you on this level is a surreal garden area with luscious plants, bonzai trees, lakes, canals, fountains and birds including those famous pink flamingos. The effect is absolutely stunning, and to be privy to such a beautiful landscape is really quite unexpected after the buzz of the High Street below.
Similar to Ivy in Sydney The Roof Gardens contains multiple areas including a Winter Garden marquee and a live music marquee with a number of lounges, perfect for jazzy summer evenings. Beyond that a staircase takes you upstairs to Babylon restaurant, which serves find cuisine and keeps the menu fresh with a constantly evolving selection. The service here is amazing, and an expansive glass wall provides an unrivaled view over London city and the gardens belows.
The Roof Gardens nightclub continues the spectacle with a couple of glittering bars, a large dancefloor with a good lighting display and a nice soundsystem, and a crowd-pleasing music selection of Commercial House, R’n’B and Pop on the decks. The Roof Gardens also has an in-house band and invites world-class DJs to play here, so on any given night the vibe can really take-off.
Separated from the dancefloor by tassel curtains the VIP area has its own small bar where you’ll find a surprisingly young crowd sipping on Cristal and Ace of Spades, alongside London’s standard set of a few older businessmen men with their young lady friends. The vibe is classy and it’s a friendly crowd, and to top it all off the bars serve some of the best cocktails in London - Best Clubs In was gifted with the best Mojito ever - a perfectly created mix made with great attention to detail. Overall there’s a great selection of drinks including amazing Lychee Martinis as well as the aforementioned upmarket Champagnes.
With this kind of view, crowd and service, The Roof Gardens can be very difficult to get into, so you can expect quite a bit of drama at the door for those not on the guestlist. For the privileged few - welcome to one of the best clubs in London
