Vista, Trafalgar Square
This venue boasts one of the most desirable roof terraces in Central London. Directly overlooking Trafalgar Square and all its eccentric goings-on, this stylish paved terrace can host barbecues and cocktail parties for up to 60 people.
There are plenty of tables and chairs, the floor is lit up after dark to create a relaxed ambience, and last orders are at midnight so you don’t have to worry about the party being cut short. You can achieve a real sense of occasion at Vista, helped of course by the majestic backdrop of one of London’s most iconic attractions – the Square itself.
Sushisamba, Heron Tower
Sushisamba has become famous throughout London since it opened for great food, flair, and its stunning views. Up on the 38th and 39th floor of the Heron Tower, you can see for miles across London and beyond – not only from the restaurants glass-fronted wall, but also from the haven that is the Sushisamba Roof Terrace.
A tree is the central feature, lit up in a golden light, and you can simply take a seat and soak up the city views with a few nibbles and tipples. It can get a bit breezy up here, and it’s definitely a bad choice for anyone who doesn’t have a head for heights, but a spot of wining and dining in this spectacular space comes highly recommended by as at Function Fixers.
Radio Rooftop Bar, Central London
For a lazy sunny afternoon when comfort and indulgence are top priorities, the Radio Rooftop Bar (located just off the Strand) offers upholstered sofas with low tables, atmospheric lighting, and outstanding views of London. A great choice for a modernist city-dweller, this contemporary bar is chic and sophisticated, and offers up both familiar and seasonal fruity cocktails as well as a good range of beer, cider and ale.
If the weather’s unkind, you can simply move inside and enjoy watching the rain out of the 360 degree windows, but on a warm summer’s evening, this venue goes the extra mile with simple touches such as scented candles (and lots of them), extra cushions and decorative lanterns to create a tranquil but animated environment.
Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, Parliament Square
If you want real wow factor and a dramatic, scenic venue for a rooftop reception, The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors provides all the ingredients for an elegant evening of entertaining.

A popular choice for corporate events, this space is easy to brand and can be adapted to suit your tastes and requirements – and you have total control when it comes to the layout and facilities of this spacious outdoor venue. Anything from hog roasts to canapés is easily arranged, and you’re also welcome to use lighting and music to really personalise the space.
