Squaremeal Review of Radio Rooftop Bar & Restaurant ?

Impossibly glamorous (and sometimes impossible to get into if you haven't booked) the exclusive rooftop bar at ME London piles on the wow factor with its minimalist monochrome decor and views over the City skyline. On warm days, the prime spots are the white leather sofas by the rooftop edge: perfect for alfresco posing. House cocktails run from the Mexican (a refreshing blend of El Jimador Tequila, cucumber, mint and agave) to South Pacific (Leblon cachaça, kiwi, elderflower and apple juice), while the Champagne list is reassuringly extensive (and expensive), with bottles of Bolly for £100 and jeroboams of Cristal 1999 weighing in at a cool £5,000. Meanwhile, aficionados can pair Cognac or whisky with a Montecristo No.4 from the cigar menu. Daytime eats include risottos, salads and burgers, with dainty tapas on offer when the lights go down.

Radio is a hard one to review from my perspective because whatever you say about the food, drinks and service, you're partly (if not mostly), paying for the views and setting. You really won't get better views in central London and I think the decor is sublime. That said, in summary, it's a great place to go for drinks in the evening and I'd definitely now recommend it for a meal. I visited on a Wednesday afternoon at lunch time and after reading a number of reviews was nervous about the service...

I always wonder when reading negative reviews where the hurt egos end and real facts start. With regards to the Radio Rooftop Bar I sadly have to agree with only 50% of the comments simply because after 2 & ½ hour queue (FACT) we were denied the view of this ‘sleek, glammed-up, ‘Sex and the City’ destination’. I have now learnt that ‘bar at full capacity’ is a better word to turn the ‘unwanted’ away – how else would you explain the door staff still letting friends and ‘fabulous people’ jumping a...

Having had lunch at Stk we decided to spent the rest of our afternoon in Radio (incidentally shouldn’t that be Rd to continue the distrust of vowels?) It could, and should, be lovely with the rooftop setting and superb views east and west across the London skyline. Sadly it was rather what I expected Stk to be – I’ve never seen so many volcanic orange tans, which coupled with the blonde extensions and red soles gave a curious colour transition that looked rather like a met office chart of the recent...

    Eating Covent Garden :: Radio rooftop bar in Covent Garden

    The Radio Rooftop Bar is spacious and modern with plenty of seating and it serves contemporary tapas. Really good contemporary tapas! Just the perfect place to go on a summer’s evening to breathe in the Covent Garden air, tuck into a plate of something tasty and take in the London skyline. It’s well documented on this blog how much I love Spanish food so I was thrilled to taste their offering. The chorizo came in the form of small, juicy sausages and was served cooked in cider with sweet red peppers. Perfect...
