Shoreditch has seen it all.
Nuns; factory owners; criminals; prostitutes.
Catering to all of the above is an eclectic range of bars, restaurants and roof terraces…. though none match Boundary’s.
Formerly a Victorian warehouse, Boundary’s many things, but a carbon copy it’s not.
Its roof terrace boasts 360° panoramic views across the chimneys of London’s East End and is genuinely one of the best in London, whether for lunch, dinner or evening cocktails.
Transporting you from the streets of London to the heart of the Mediterranean – minus the climate, the cuisine and the ocean views – getting up to the Boundary roof terrace feels a little like being on holiday, enveloped by 100 year old olive trees surrounding a grand open fireplace and sweeping bar.
Open all year round, the Orangery is a heated, covered pergola adorned with seasonal foliage and festoon lighting, and is bookable for a light meal of robata grilled lobster; octopus and chorizo skewers; platters of oysters and fruits de mer; or a 35 day-aged cote de boeuf to share between two.
Beyond that is the terrace, open in the warmer months and lit by fire pits as the night draws in. While it’s walk-in only, it’s here that you’ll be aiming to retire for an after dinner digestif of shiso leaf and whisky cocktails, and a slice of tarte tatin.
A restaurant; a bar; a bakery (pause for breath); a hotel; a food store; and a rooftop retreat – Boundary kindly caters to everyone’s needs and tastes.
Except for the prostitutes…
NOTE: The Boundary Rooftop is open daily from noon-11pm, and reservations can be made online HERE.
