The Roof Gardens

The Kensington Roof Gardens | Kensington

NOTE: The Kensington Roof Gardens are currently closed. But such a beautiful space can’t stay that way for long…

Take a walk on the wild side.


Bill, Ben, Splosh and Pecks – Kensington Roof Gardens’ resident quartet of flamingos – are ready for you.

The Roof Gardens are both an opulent night-faring experience and the perfect place for an afternoon stroll (with cocktails).

A pair of options await your arrival.

The seventh floor hosts Babylon, a sleek and sophisticated eatery with panorama skyline views and smooth, live jazz.

Or hit the rooftop, where a triumvirate of gardens intermingle seamlessly with a slick cocktail bar and are themed as follows: Spanish, Tudor, and English Woodland. Happily, being home to the aforementioned flamingos as well as fish and ‘exotic ducks’, you’re unlikely to be the only party animal up there.

The bar, which comprises both outdoor and indoor areas, features resident DJs, summer barbecues and a smorgasbord of cocktails.

Whatever that looks like.


NOTE: The Kensington Roof Gardens are currently closed, and new plans are yet to be announced…
