The Residence Rooftop Bar at Four Seasons

Reviewed by Michael M Sandwick
Published on September 06, 2019

The Residence is a 3-bedroom luxury accommodation atop the Four Seasons Hotel. Staying there requires marriage to an oligarch, or selling a kidney. Now however, you can pop up to the pop-up that is currently in residence at The Residence. But you better be quick. It’s only open Thursday – Saturday until the end of September, weather permitting.

The rooftop bar allows just a little peek into the 3000+ square foot apartment. Drinks and “snacks” are on the terrace which spans the entire length and overlooks The Tower and much of iconic London. It is divine! Served by the young and beautiful, you can lounge in a sling-back beach chair, a sofa, a barstool or a cosy table for 2. On a warm summer evening, it would be difficult to find a better place to enjoy a cocktail or indeed, a better cocktail.

Head Bartender Harry Nikolaou created the sensational cocktails (£12). The Mexican, a mix of tequila, lime, mango and agave allows the taste of tequila to shine through the sweet and sour. The Colada blended rum, coconut water and pineapple in a pure distillation of the drink with the most perfect clump of crystal clear ice. 10 out of 10!

The Asian restaurant Mei Ume provides hot and cold delicacies. A spicy tuna uramaki (£21) and a salmon and avocado uramaki (£16) were excellent.

I’d love an entire weekend… if anyone has a spare oligarch!
