The Terrace Bar at Madison
When the weather decides to be kind, the terrace at Madison is a rooftop suntrap worth knowing about. Currently decked out with loungers, sofas & parasols in Moët Ice Impérial’s trademark
colours, this is the place to sip the ‘world’s first ever Champagne specifically created to be enjoyed on ice’. Order it by the flute (£11.50) or have it served with fresh summer fruits: the jury
is still out on this one, although there are no reservations when it comes to the rest of Moët’s bubbles or the healthy contingent of wines by the glass. Cocktails (& mocktails) du jour include
a plausible citrus mojito, bramble, virgin mule & the New Yorker (Amaretto & Campari ‘seduced’ by bitter lemon & orange juice). The real seduction, however, is the view of St Paul’s
& the fascinating optical illusion you’ll experience as you’re whizzed up in the glass lift.
