On Saturday 6th July, London welcomes a new ultimate rooftop drinking and dining destination, Skylark, in timely arrival for the heady peak of summer. 10 floors up, perfectly perched overlooking Notting Hill, on the banks of Little Venice, Skylark Roof Garden is set to be the city’s premier sun trap, with an enviable vista across the West London skyline.
Make partying a priority at the weekend with ample space for 180 or reserve one of the lavish day beds to enjoy everything Skylark offers for leisurely summer weekend dining and drinking. On the menu, find light, flavour-packed dishes full of the best seasonal ingredients along with exceptional cocktails created to order, all enjoyed floors above the bustle of the streets and with views of The Shard, Hyde Park and The Royal Albert Hall. See in the sunset sound-tracked by orchestral lilts, followed by the best DJs including Spencer Mac (Novikov and Producer for Skull Bandits) and Mercedes Benson playing right through from sunset to late evening.
Owner and restaurant entrepreneur Adam Marshall offers starters of chili Cornish crab salad with avocado whip, pomegranate, squid ink tuile and salsa verde (£9.30), and beetroot and gin cured salmon gravlax with fresh citrus cucumber, horseradish mayonnaise, keta caviar and sake dressing (£9.30) and a frisée salad of roasted fig, blue cheese, candied walnuts and aged Iberico ham (£7.90). Main course highlights include the sauté of mussels, clams and tiger prawns, fresh burratina di puglia with heritage tomatoes and basil and hazelnut pesto, or homemade lightly spiced aubergine and sweet Romana pepper lasagne with Saffron potato fondant (£14.95). Sky-high sweets include amaretto tiramisu (£6.95), elderflower cheesecake with raspberry coulis (£6.50) and lime and Malibu panna cotta with roasted pineapple (£6.25).
Sundowners are sorted with a drinks list that runs the gamut from Ruinart Champagne to Don Julio 1942 tequila, with a succinct list of quality wines and cutting-edge cocktails. Skylark’s signature cocktails include the White Chocolate Martini, Mezcal Mule and Hibiscus Daiquiri, all at £10. For scorchers their Frozen Cocktails are set to be firm favourites with cooling tipples including Watermelon Washer (Bacardi Blanco Rum, watermelon liqueur, fresh pineapple juice, fresh cut watermelon, lime juice and sugar syrup) and Brockman’s Frosé (Brockman’s Gin, Combier Rose Liqueur, Lemon Juice and Sweet Rose Wine).
